I never knew they'd have that different of dashes between a premium and base GT. Kind of crazy. I have an '06 GT, looks just like the 140 mph one from above

My 05 gt base manual has spedo to 140.

---------- Post added at 01:18 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:17 AM ----------

So its not the difference between base or premium. Mine is base because its all matte black everything, only chrome is on the vents, non leather steering wheel (which i hate), none of the bling.

Yeah, took that pic since my car starting running hot two days after it came from service, they had change the alternator and revealed the motor pan since it had a small oil leak. Took the pic just in case it was not running hot once I arrived at the dealer lol

Same engine, mostly creature comforts, radio, trim, seats, etc. But the base probably came with smaller wheels and a lower speed rated tire. The tire speed rating is usually what determines where the governor is set on all cars. So your top speed is probably lower than a premium because of that, but could be changed with a tuner.

Before I got my Stang, I was gonna get a 13' base GT. and you can order the Base with leather int. so it may have been per ordered that way. Or someone paid some $$$ to have the leather put in afterwards

Sounds like someone swapped in GT Premium seats OR had them covered in leather. When I worked at a Hinda dealer in the late 90s people would have the Passport cloth replaced with leather. Believe they used a company called Catskinz. Just pull off factory cloth covers and put leather on presto changeo lol. For the record I have an 07 GT Premium with Premium interior package which included the faux leather dash billet shift ball and bright dash trim and 140 MPH speedo and 18" "fanblade" wheels.

That's kind of crazy, I always thought the all black dash was an extra option? between the leather seats and all black dash, your's may be the most premium base I've ever seen lol. I kind of wish mine had the all black dash at times to be honest.

I think there is a leather seat option and then the sport leather seat option which the premium's have which may be the reasoning for the leather seats and the non premium designation we are all assuming.

Not 100% on this but I think that was a new option for 13. Dont think the 05-09 offered a leather option on the base GT or V6. I say to the OP check your car with the vin. I bought my 07 used at Carmax and they didnt know it came with the factory security system including the radar sensor. Found a link for checking VIN and saw all the equipment plus the sticker price

If you remove the quotations and enter your vin after the equals sign it should bring up a pdf image of your cars original window sticker...
