Default Looking to buy this Mustang Gt

Hi everyone, quick story to introduce my self. Im in the need of a new car since my 04 wrx sti was totaled. My brother has a 2009 bullitt wich i fell in love with after driving it. I have buddies with the s197 mustangs and i like the looks of them. So i found this one at a dealer about 50 miles away and i love the look and everything done it. It looks like a reincarnation of the Elenor mustang from my favorite movie gone in 60 secounds.

i would like to know what body kit this car has? Or is it a bunch of different parts put together. The car is a 2006 with 44k miles, they are asking 23 but a salesman said he can give it to me for 21500. Its completly stock and looks like leather interior but the inserts look aftermarket in the seats.

What do you guys think? Also how much would it cost to get 4.10s installed from ford on this car? The stock mustang gts performance isnt enough so i gotta fix that first.

hows reliability on these cars?

i havent had any problems with mine and it has 45k miles. The car just has a bunch of random body parts not one specific kit. As for 4.10's i have those too and it costed me about 600 installed.

the engine compartment looks a little dirty and it should match the exterior, so that raises a few questions for me.
The car is probably off warranty but since you are already considering 4.10's I wouldn't worry about reliability much.

thanks for the replies guys. Why do you say i should forget about reliablity if i get the 4.10s.

Is the acceleration difference from the 4.10s to 3.73s that great of a difference?

Whats a good asking price for the car?

The car dose not have a warranty, iam debating getthing the extended warranty. How reliable are these new 3v engines. What kind of powe can be made staying NA.

They're asking way too high. Those body panels actually decrease the value of the car, and a stock 06 GT with 44k miles is only worth about 16-18, and that's a GENEROUS offer. I would try and get them down to 14 or so, or just find a different car. If you like the Eleanor Style anything by cervini would be golden.

yea i also feel 21 is to much for the car. i have found mustang gts for around 17-18-19k. The thing about it is, how much would it cost me to transform a regular gt into what this car is. The elenor style. i would assume around 2-3gs so its kinda already included in this car. Feel free to correct me if im wrong, im on here for facts and opinions.

ok looking car, bit much for me personally but whatever. If you really like it, tell the salesmen he can give it to you for 20,000, otherwise I would walk. Like someone said before, all that crap on the car is not worth anything unless its the right person.

4 grand for Cervini's kit, but it includes the whole shabang, as well as side exhaust. That's what I'd do if I were you. Also cheaper if you do your own work.

I'd pass on that car man....as said earlier you should be able to get a similar car for around 16, maybe even 15, then install the kit yourself like the picture above.


Silasx93 is that your car?

I wouldn't touch it for anything over $18k, tops and ONLY if it's in cherry condition. I paid $13.5k a year ago for an '06 V6 Pony Package with only 9630 miles on it, showroom condition.

Other than visuals, it looks totally stock.

Too much for what you would be getting. Without knowing the other options it could be a base GT that has been modded. That sales guy is trying to take you for a fool.

And if it has had the chronic water leak issue, offer them $4k to take it off their hands...

way too much. The body looks sharp, but look how ratty that looks under the hood. They should be ashamed to have that car in the show room. They clearly do not care and are trying to make some cash.

Guaranty when that car came in as a trade in, they told the person that the mods make it worth less in trade as they will have to blah blah blah and then low ball the crap out of him. Then they put it up for the price of the cost of one of those cars + all the mods at full value. There grabbing fistfuls of cash at both ends.

As others have said, 18 sounds reasonable for that car, with those mods already done. There going to sell you on the body, but it could be a nightmare under the hood, as whoever had that car clearly only cared about how it looked on the outside, and not about taking care of it under the hood.

If they won't come down to like 19 or less, seriously just walk. You can get a stock GT in the 15 to 16 range and make it your own for less then it will cost to buy someone elses dream.

omg, you have GREAT cars in your area, just searched near the address of J star motors, they are CRAZY over priced. If I were you I would hop on this car, worth way more and looks better IMO:

And some other options:
