1999 Mustang GT

I'm looking at this 1999 Mustang GT with 111k miles for 3.4k. I currently have an 04 v6 with 84k miles but I really want a v8. My question is is the 1999 GT worth it? Should I sell my 04 and buy the 1999 Stang?

If it's financially reasonable for you to do so and the car is in a good well maintained condition, yes.

The 2V 4.6 will be a huge step up from what you have, but keep in mind if you ever want any sort of real power out of it that will require a blower, turbo or N2O. Heads, cams and every bolt-on known to civilized mankind will only put one of these engines up in the 310-325 rwhp range. Which is decent, but you won't be out killing any of the newer Mustangs or Camaros with it.

The motor swap would cost as much or more than the '99 and I think he has to sell his car before he can buy it.

in terms of reliability the 4.6 having 30k more miles should not scare you. they are well built engines and so long as it been taken care of (oil changes, service, etc.) you should not have any major issues with it.
