1996 Ford Mustang GT 2dr Coupe


Bought new off the lot. Opal Frost GT with Option Package 248a (the 1996 version of the GTS). I added A/C at the dealer soon after purchase and then added a spoiler a couple of years later. There were a few minor problems early on (clutch noise, radio - all covered by the dealer). The intake manifold has blown twice (at 50k miles and 100k miles) - both times replaced by the dealer at no charge. Pirelli P7000 tires are a great fit for this car (get ~40k miles on them and all-weather traction). Good mileage for a V8. Some wear on the interior pieces but overall the car has aged very well. Paint still looks new. Has been a great car; still going strong on original engine at 157K miles.

Best Features

4.6L V8 is smooth, sounds awesome, only needed the one tuneup in 157K miles.

Worst Features

Interior could have worn a little better. Plastic trim around the radio and doors is flaking off, but some wear is expected after 9 years.
