Default My choice

I will say Shelby GT500 is the best Mustang, its supercharged, 5.4-liter V-8 good for 550 hp... serves as a real challenge for the previously released mustangs.

My personal choice is the Boss 429. However since that is not a choice here I will go with the 65 GT350.

I got to say the 2001 Bullitt. The 08 Bullitt was not much more than a green GT with Bullitt emblems and a cold air intake. The 01 was much more specialized than many others on that list. 01 Bullitt has my vote.

Have to throw in a vote for the 03 04 Machs. I see them as a tribute to the past reminding us why we are mustang fans ...

I'm pretty much with a bunch of others on the Boss 429. I'm shocked that none of the late 60s big block variants even made the list. A new GT500Kr made it, but not the original........WTF???? Nary a 428 or 429 to be found......makes this old fart sad.
