It's an 07 GT Grabber Orange. Bone stock besides window tint. Just a little over 49,500 miles. Plan is a mild build, strictly N/A. Bought it as a daily, and I'm very happy with the car. Just some mods to make it a little more interesting. I think the first mod will be FR500 axlebacks.

Yeah, I'm happy with it. It just needs a little loving. Rear pinion seal is leaking and the throw out bearing is getting a little tired. Other than that it's great.

Thanks. It's my favorite color for the 05-09 cars. A good friend of mine had it. He's retiring late next month. So, elderly driven, lowish mileage, stock, everything you'd want.

Biggest reason why I bought it. Love grabber orange. Then followed closely by the three things I want on/for a car.
And I like the look of the 05-09 cars more than any modern mustang.

^ interestingly, it's never been in a garage, for at least 2 1/2 years. The owner lived in the apartment complex across the street from where I work. But yes he took very good care of it.

That thing is sweet!
Funny thing is my brother towed an 05 GT today to our shop. It's ruby red, I'm not sure if that's the proper name for the color though. But yeah I like the look of the 05-09 cars a lot.

I had a lot of fun in my 08 though. The interior felt more retro and it handled more retro too!

Yeah, I want a short throw and axlebacks ASAP. Now, time to save up for them. Luckily, AM has them. 😊

Not for sale sorry; sentimental value and what not. I agree it's the best color on the 05-09 cars. I might be biased though; I'm a sucker for the Grabber colors.

The guy he bought from is a friend of his. On top of that he pretty much saw the car everyday since his friend lived across the street from his shop.

Like to see what you do to it. Mine is the same color and I always like to see how others customize the grabber orange

I was thinking about tinted tail lights and head lights, black spoke wheels and black graphics. Then thought that's basically the norm. So, we'll see appearance wise; dare to be different you know?. Performance, "mild full" build. Bolt ons, short throw, exhaust, suspension, gears and some other stuff. Nothing major and etched in stone N/A build.

I like the one in my Roush, or maybe going old school with a Hurst. I've been talking with Alex on the options to choose from.

Yeah, and the Pinion seal. If it decides to get worse then it'll need to be main priority. It's basically just started very recently. Even being stock and frigging slow as hell, I'm enjoying the car a lot.

Just to give you guys kind of an idea of what it will look like. So basically very similar to a Shelby GT.
