Worried about car report on mach 1?help?

Car is a 03 Mach 1 but yet on the report for the engine it says 4.6 SOHC 32v...wtf? Right?

Under trim it also says "Gt coupe"

Has the body been swapped or something? Why is it saying that?

Here's a pic

Here's a picture I found on car history report of it
Before with cobra emblems, type rs I believe... And the hood... Notice no shaker? So is it possible it has a CAI setup and since it makes the shaker non usable, would that give a good idea as to why it might be like that? Like that took off the shaker to be able to put that hood on?I don't know why you would own a Mach 1 to do that to...

And now

Car is in Texas, I'm in Colorado. And the deal is to trade my 2005 gmc Sierra 1500(101k miles) with 6 inch lift for the 2003 Mach 1..(59,899 miles)plus $3,000 cash from his end for my truck and another $500 for me driving to him. (16 hours each way) so a total of $3500 on top of the trade for my truck.

Well the truck does have a deep door scratch, cracked windshield, and the hood and bumper are chipping. I figure I could throw the mustang up for sale at about 14.5k Obo if I were to get it. Then buy a lower mileaged one...

The quarter glass in a Mach 1 or bullit is a signature piece it would take alot of work to change the roof frame to get that glass in a gt and I'm not even sure if it can be done to a regular mustang

Maybe the site you went to doesn't do special vehicles like that. So it just shows a gt not the Mach.....

That's what I'm thinking. I have 2 bad quality videos he sent me of it starting(sounds healthy) and a walk around. Would post them from my library photos but I can't.

Tell me about it.... Luckily though my grandpa is located directly where he is... Maybe I'll have a shot of having him take it to a mechanic for me.
