they are all built on the same frame, the body panels are just shaped a bit different and they have different engines.


Uhm, no. lol. There is no frame.



uhm yes there is a frame! It's just part of the entire car. That's why the SN95 mustangs are referred to as Unibody construction. Frame and body all one piece. They are very very similar from 94-04, with suttle changes. The core car is the same, but the shape of the outer shell has changed, some suspension parts got better and the drivetrain saw many upgrades.

My dad got me this cool video showing the 95 mustangs being built and it gives you a good idea of how it goes. The engine is installed from underneath BTW.

Well I guess I just see it incorrect to talk about the "mustang's frame". I could be wrong.

true. If you lay under there you see pieces of the 'unibody' that are shaped like a frame. It's all one piece.

I guess with out insulting your intelligence it isn't one piece thats the point of a unibody. There is a rear portion and front portion that is held together by the car's floor.

yeah i know what you mean, I have seen them put together, seen them taken apart and seen them rebuilt. It's to make things more efficient all around

What a contradiction! You can't have a frame and a unibody. Trucks have frames and cars(for the most part) have unibodies anymore. Then you have that exception where Honda tried to build a truck and made it a unibody. (Honda Ridgeline) And overall, if you think a frame and unibody are equal, then you just as well say 79-04 are all the same. Hell, they use the same coil springs, must be the exact same car...heh. And one more thing, unibody-constructed vehicles are a lot less rigid, and a lot more squishy then frames. Take your jack, and slide it under the front of your Mustang, and put it under that "frame"(unibody). Then jack it up, and watch it crumple. Now, find a truck with a frame, and jack it up using the frame. Worlds of difference.

whatever. I know what I'm talking about. Sorry I can't properly describe a comparison between a few mustangs. [&:][&:]

I know what a frame and a unibody are.

what i mean is that the SN95s are all built on the same base, their core designs are the same, they just upgraded what needed to be upgraded

I think the new Mustang Chassis is based off of the Lincoln LS chassis (S-197 I think)..
