Rare 1996 Mustang GT?

Hey fellas! (ladies also!)

I'm new to the forum and seeking some help to identify my mustang. I've been told it's quite rare yet no-one seems to know about it. I've had several people tell me it doesn't exist yet I own it stock. It's a 1996 GT without body kit, fog lights, power this/that and it has Mustang GT on the back bumper. I purchased it brand-new at a dealer in Cali. What do I have fellas? I was told the old LX wasn't made in 1996 with the 4.6 so? If you have any info or know of someone who knows what I have...please let me know. Thanks.

Re: Rare 1996 Mustang GT?

When you say without body kit do you mean it has the same body as a v6?

That was in 95, OP has a 96.

I'm sure it could have been custom ordered.

Sounds like the 248A is the GTS without the distinction of being a GTS

Re: Rare 1996 Mustang GT?

Hit up Ford at there web and ask for a build sheet. I did on my Mustang to find out how mine was ordered and how many with that package and options and best yet it was free took about 2 weeks.

Re: Rare 1996 Mustang GT?

Yah definitely sounds like the likes of a GTS...cool find, you got yourself a unique GT.

Get a build sheet as said above. It'll be interesting to find out that info about your car.

I'm aware that the op has a 96, did you look at the link I posted, It says that you could order one till 98

Edit: I copied this off the link I posted. "Ford did away with the GTS designation in 1996, replacing it with the 248A package. This package continued to be offered until the end of the 1998 model year. As of late, Ford does not plan to offer a stripped version of the current Mustang GT."
