Default 2003 Mustang GT Centennial Edition - Worth?

I didn't know if I should post this here or in the California forum.

I bought a 2003 Mustang GT Centennial Edition from a dealer and making payments on it. After about three months I've had many problems and eventually discovered that it was a salvaged vehicle. I'm currently trying to take action to settle things, but I need to know how much this car is worth salvaged.

The special edition isn't an option on KBB, nor is a salvage car an option.

Any help you guys could provide would be a HUGE help!

Sorry about the car man. I've never heard of a 03 Centennial Edition? What options did it have?

I've only seen one once before. I'd say it would be the same as a gt.

from wiki, In 2003, Ford Produced a Centennial Edition of the Mustang. Producing 1,323 Convertible models and only 717 Coupe models. Total production for this Centennial Edition was 2,040. This model came as Henry Ford stated when he created the Model T "Any color as long as its Black." The 100th Anniversary models only came in black, and included Premium Verona-grain Imola leather seating surfaces in two-tone parchment, and the Mustang got the GT premium package which included 17" wheels, anti-lock brakes and traction control; dual exhaust; power driver's seat with power lumbar support; leather-wrapped steering wheel; and Mach 460 AM/FM Stereo with six-disc CD changer, as well as 100th Anniversary badges on the fender and decklid and embossed on the seats. The Centennial Package was a $995 upgrade.

I just saw the e-mail for the responses... thank you all for your comments and questions.

Yeah, Wikipedia was where I got the detailed info on this particular version.

That's around what I was charged also, which is decent for a clean title. But with a salvage title it should be a fraction of that price.

As of now it seems like I'm screwed and will have to chalk it up to a loss and an expensive learning experience.

Treat it like a GT.

If the dealer hid the salvage title, they owe you. There's a guy on the Roush forum that this happend to. The dealership had to bend over and take it from him when it was all done. He walked away with a new car and paid nothing.

Will do!

Yeah, I hope that'll be the outcome. I've done all the debating with the financial company that I could do, so I have to take the best agreement as I do need a car and no new ding on my credit. I will continue to seek legal action and hopefully my outcome will end up similar to the guy you mentioned.

Thank you all again for your help, attention, and comments. They've been greatly appreciated during this aggravating past few weeks!

I paid $15k for mine, and it has issues also. If it's fixed up nice and doesnt have very high mileage, then you can probably get it for the price i paid. Good luck! I hope to get mine back into shape and get rid of it!

beyond the limited number of production,the badges, two tone interior, and the "100 centennial being pressed into the seatback its the same as a gt mustang. the low production number 717 coupes 1300+verts MAY be beneficial sometime years down the road.
