Insight from all please!

So it's the classic V6 debate...
I think I want to sell my V6 and buy a 5 speed GT.... However I really like my after market hood and bumpers

So... Should I convert my V6's body back to stock using junk yard parts or should I leave my stuff on it and sell it?

Any ideas what mine would go for? 2001 V6 Auto with 53K? Some mods are in my signature!

I found a 2002 gt here for 4200 but it has 155k so that's what I'm debating plus my 6 has so much sentimental value

Ok that's not too bad... I have about 2K saved up and I can barrow a car for a few months. Do you think this is a good idea?

I'm thinking slightly more maybe 9k but definitely not 10, not to crush your dreams or anything, just trying to be realistic

You'd be lucky to get 10% above kbb even with mods cuz some people don't want modded cars depends just list it on Craigslist and see if you draw any interest

You'll be lucky to get book, especially with mods.. Mods rarely if ever increase value..

Ask 9 sell for 8 or even 7.5 put your 2k with it .. I think 10k should get a GT pretty easy

I bought my 02 V6 Mustang in May for $7300. It was almost mint. Only thing wrong was the stereo was busted (planned on replacing anyways) and just a few rock chips nothing major. Only had 37k miles on it. So I would say you would get maybe $7000 on the high end, even with mods.

What year GT? I would get a newer model if you sell it. Shoot the new V6 mustangs got some good power and even better gas mileage. Think those things get like 30 to the gallon highway.

Agreed. I actually wont buy a car unless it is stock. I dont trust too many people's handy work and have seen my fair share of really shady/poorly executed modifications.

Well good thing it will be easy to turn my car stock lol.

Edit: well I guess I did add the hood scoop and fog lights. But at least they look stock lol.
