I believe that's been done at least once. Still trying to track down every maintenance record.

a new car will almost never cost less than an existing car, even when the old one needs a lot of maintenance . . . how much maintenance can you do for $500/month? (answer: a lot)

us parents love our red-headed-step-children just the same, but yeah someone else might think twice about adopting them, LOL . . . my point, same as yours, is: it is probably worth a lot more to keep and drive, than to sell
Getting married this year, and kids will likely follow relatively soon thereafter and it's very difficult to put a baby in a carseat in the back of a Mustang...so I'm trying to decide whether to hold on to it until that point, or just replace it now.

I assume the price difference is much less now so there would be no major reason not to get the later model year with the Coyote engine

but I'd go for a 2012 instead of 2014, because I don't like the catfish face of the 2013-2014 cars . . . but that's just me! :-)
I'm with you, I hate what they did with the front of the refreshed cars. I also didn't care for the black trunk lid, though the taillight change wasn't bad.

Did I get ripped off? I went to a dealer and an independent shop. Both told me the back right brake was not doing anything, and the original rotors needed replacing on a 160,000 mile car. The dealer wanted $1400, the independent shop did it for $700. Could I have gotten all the rotors and pads replaced for less?

Three separate dealers and one independent shop all recommended different suspension work.
