1999 ford Mustang gt questions

Hello everyone,

I'm going in to get my license in a little under 2 weeks and have been looking at '99 gt's due to the fact that they seem to be cheaper than the rest of that generation and I've also heard that they are easier to mod. But I have no clue what common problems with these cars are or what to look for when I go to buy one. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Aside from some minor mechanical and cosmetic differences the entire '99-'04 GT run are the same car. So as far as modding there are really no differences.

Figuring you find a car that's been well maintained and not beaten these things are pretty solid. About the only possible issue with a '99 is the coolant crossover section of the intake manifold like to crack; beginning in '02 Ford used one with an aluminum section there which if you run into that problem will be the replacement fix. My '01 with 117K on the clock still has the factory all plastic manifold.

Keep us posted on cars you might be potentially interested in and we can give some feedback.
