1995 GTS

Just bought a 95 GTS automatic with 127, 000 miles. Sitting on 17" Pirelli tires and stock rims. Also have a set of 16" on stock rims. Car was owned by an older mechanic and is beautiful inside and out. Has a new dual-core radiator, new thermostat and housing, and new alternator. I know these cars are rare (6000 made and 1500 were automatics) and its in unbelievable shape. I paid $4000 for all of it..... good deal or no?

Also, this is the first Mustang I've owned, and I will admit, I know nothing about this car. I know its a 5.0 and the intake has a chip on it. I want to make it a little louder, but don't have the money for a new exhaust. Are there tips I can buy that will make it sound good, hut won't look like all the Hondas running around with softball size tips? Also, is a cold air intake a good idea? Ive heard they up the hp and are supposed to help on gas mileage too. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

A true GTS has a 5spd, roll up/hand crank windows and no rear defrost.
The S means standard.. Zero options.

Going off the pics, it appears to have an auto, power windows and rear defrost, so no. It also looks to have premium(mach460) sound.

According to this I'm slightly off base, having said that I'm of the opinion that a true GTS will have no options, period.

The black car in my photos is IMO a true GTS, as I added the spoiler.

Apologies if I created any confusion, guess you could call me a purest..

GTS is the sport edition. The car's VIN number plates state GTS. Yes the car is an automatic. Only 1500 of the GTS' were made automatics. I think the locks and windows were done aftermarket as it also has an alarm and keyless entry. It also does not have a spoiler as you can see in the pics. No leather either, which from what I understand, comes with the GT.

Check out the link I posted.
Would cost a lot to do the windows and locks aftermarket as the door panels are completely different too. Your car is a GTS but the S means standard, the few options you do have are because the original owner ordered them.

I was just reading it as you posted that reply, lol. Thats exactly the site I went on when I purchased the car. I thought the guy was off his rocker when he said GTS, no one I know even knew what a GTS was. The site says the driver's seat was motorized, but mine is not. It manually adjusts. So, the author of rhe site is off base, which he said he could be. Whatever, I'm not here to split hairs.... all I know is I am a proud owner of my first Mustang, and I love it. Don't care if its a GT, GTS or even a Cobra. Its a Mustang and I'm proud to be a member of the Mustang community!!!! Thanks for all the replies guys!

Deadspot, thanks for clearing that up. The guy I bought it from said it was the sport edition. I thought that was funny cus I figured the sport package would include the spoiler. All I know is its a beautiful Mustang (thanks for the compliment Brandon) and I love it.....

Mine had a manual seat as well, the advantage you have with these cars is weight. They are lighter then others meaning they have good modding potential, all the way through the 80's these 'S' cars were sought after by drag racers. They didn't make many per year and lots were bought to become racers which has made them hard to come by nowadays. I really enjoyed mine, wish I still had it lol either way you a cool little slice of Mustang history/lore!

Didn't mean to sound condescending or be splitting hairs! Enjoy your ride, 94-94 V8 cars are may favs
