Both 2014, same trim build, both Track Pack. The one that does have the clunking is reported as stock by the Ford Dealer that sold the car. That said, it's stockness is dubious to me. It drives very differently from the second one (the smooth one) which I KNOW is stock.

Driving a 2015 GT from the dealer wasn't as smooth and quiet as my Second (smooth shifting) Mustang. It must be an anomaly. Of course my wife wants to switch cars with me, but I won't do that. Hers has the 100,000 mi. Extended warranty, mine only has the standard factory warranty. She needs it more than I since she works and I'm retired.
