I would say the 07 Mustang. The V6 they're using is finally powerfull enough for a base model. Back in the mid to late 90s, the V6 was a joke.

The Corvette is probably kind of worn out also, aside from the fact a 1977 is weak due to all the emissions and gas crisis of the 70's.

By faster I assume you mean top speed.The top speed as with off the line performance is governed by a lot of variables,but gear ratio's play a big role also torque,so it's not just horsepower.You would have to put them side by side with equal drivers to find out for sure.Or e-mail Road and Track magazine see what they say.

The 07 Mustang V6 is actually a pretty awesome car. Not nearly as fast as the GT with the V8, but definetely faster than the 77 Vette. Late 70's Vettes, along with everything else on the road back then, had "smogger" engines that were very restricted and short on power.
