I'm looking into buying a Mustang, but I only have around $7000 to spend so I think it's going to have to be a 'tang between the years '96 and '00. What year do you think is best and why? Any other recommendations are welcome. Thanks.
They have 25% more hp, they are pretty much bulletproof, they have 0-balance cranks, and the engines are better able to handle any kind of power adder you can throw at them.sean_micken said:So what are the reasons for getting one in the '99-'04 range rather than the earlier models?
mainly body and engine differences, too many to mention.sean_micken said:Would someone tell me the differences between just the reg Mustangs, the GTs, and the Cobras? I also heard about "Saleen" -- Is that also a model? If so, how is it different?
You can find them for less than $6,000 around here . . .lilmiss_stang94 said:Where are you guys finding '00+ for 7 grand? In MI '94's are selling for 7+. The '00's are around 10 grand... I look at alot of "wheeler dealer" type mags. and there's even alot of '94's going for 10 grand. Don't buy from a dealer either... try to find someone you can trust.
They are going to be .3-.4 seconds faster in the 1/4. They have 305 hp and 300 tq and can be made into a beast with a set of 4.30's. :happyhappShadowFist said:How does a 96 cobra stack against the newer GTs? I have seen some cobras for sale around here and was wondering if a 96 (or so) cobra would be better than a 01-04 gt.
10K :eyebulge:? You should be able to find a 96-97 cobra for 7-8k, I have seen quite a few 99 cobras in the 11k price range and a couple in the 10's. :laughlitt Of course they don't have less than 60k on the clock.ShadowFist said:It definitely sounds like spending 10k on a 96 cobra is much better than spending 20k for a newer gt...
I guess everything is just more expensive over here in Washington State. Kelly blue book reports that a 96 cobra with 90k miles are worth around 10.5-11k here from a private party.Duncan McDougal said:10K :eyebulge:?
