An acquaintence has a 98 white GT with a gold pony in the grill and some other special effects. Is this a special edition or something? She doesn't know, she bought it used but loves it anyway.

No, the past owners must have liked gold?

Dollarbill - sort of off-topic, but wasn't there a "GTS" version someplace in 96-98? Thought I'd seen another thread that mentioned a GT but no power windows, seats, etc.

Hm... not that I know of. I've heard of 95 GTS but not any other sn95 body with a 4.6 . No offense to anyone but I can't see Ford making a special edition with a gold horse. I found this info about the GTS: What exactly is a Mustang GTS? To make it simple, think of it as a throwback to the old Mustang LX's of the pre-SN-95 era. GTS' came standard with the basic equipment that made a Mustang a GT. This included the HO 302cid pushrod V-8 powerplant, Borg-Warner T-5 manual transmission and a Traction-Lok axle. Obvious external characteristics of a GTS are the absence of a rear decklid spoiler, lack of fog lamps in the front airdam and 16"x7" 5 spoke SN-95 "waffle" pony rims. Factory original GTS' will have the "Mustang GT" logo embossed on the rear bumper cover, as is the case on standard GT's, and "Mustang GT" badging on the front fenders. Dual 2.25" stainless steel tail pipes exit the back.

Inside the passenger compartment the GTS Mustang shares the same amenities as the base V-6 Mustang. Seats are cloth and only the drivers side, 4-way power adjustable is an option. Windows and door locks are manual. Only the driver and passenger side mirrors are powered. Air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo cassette player are standard. Visor mirrors are non-illuminated, as opposed to illuminated like the GT and convertible Mustang's. The instrument pod is the only interior amenity borrowed from the GT (7000rpm redline tach, 150mph speedometer, fuel, volt, oil, and temp gauges.)
As a side note, all options on V6 models were also available on the GTS. These options are easily broken down into two categories. Package Group 1 consisted of power windows, door locks and remote decklid release(standard on GT and convertible.) Group 2 consisted of cruise control, dual illuminated visor mirrors (standard on GT and convertible) and AM/FM stereo cassette player with premium sound. 4-wheel antilock brakes, an AODE transmission*, and remote keyless entry* were also options. Customers were able to order GTS' from the factory with as little or as many options as they wanted. Options were also available at the dealer, on request of the purchaser.
Ford did away with the GTS designation in 1996, with 1995 being the only year a true GTS model existed, replacing it with the 248A option package, which deleted many things from the car and made it comperable to the GTS. This package continued to be offered until the end of the 1998 model year. As of late, Ford does not plan to offer a stripped version of the current Mustang GT
