should i or shouldnt i

seriously considering selling my. 2001 stang, it's not because it don't look nice or whatever...I just think I'd rather have a stick shift in a v8 model. all I have ever driven is a automatic and honestly I'm sick of it. sure it takes a little time to learn a manual, but so what?.. kinda like you learn to swim or drown know what I mean?. if I have a manual, I have to learn to drive it or I can't get anywhere at all. at least that's the way I'm approaching it .not sure what I could get out of it...have a few things to fix..mainly struts and coilsprings and that sort of thing.. bought the car for 6000.00...hope I. can get at least a little more than half out of it..who really knows right?....I don't know if I could trade it in on something a little newer. or not..it has 35th anniversary emblems on it.....but do I know for a fact it is a 35th anniversary edition?...no I Don't...don't even have any idea on how to find out..any ideas?..any of you. mustang guys or gals have a way of figuring this out?...thanks in advance...

Not sure for a v8 mustang is the best car to learn how to drive stick especially if it's gonna be ur only source of transportation. Also using the vin number should tell you what u got. Good luck👍🏻

Might have something for you soon. If you haven't found anything. If you could live with an SN-95.


Adventure till you drop.

well I'm thinking, if I can get 4,000 out of my car I can save up a extra 4,000 and I'll be close to where I wanna be moneywise...if i can come up with at least 8,000 I stand a good chance of being able to get a 04-05.....I think......so maybe I'm off 2,000 or 3,500..I'll still be pretty Damn close

I have a customer trying to sell his 98 GT for $2,500. I'm almost 2 hours away from you. And yes it's a stick.

64, 69, 74, 79, 84, 89, 94,99, 04, 09, 14, 19 These are the Anniversary Editions. 1st Mustang was a 64 1/2. Every 5 years is the Anniversary Edition ....but I don't think they started calling them Anniversary Editions till the SN95's came out...Not sure. So a 2001 is not an Anniversary Edition. It seems Anniversary editions are usually the 1st or last year of a body style. 2004 was the last year for the New Edge Body.
If you really like the car you have now maybe they make a Ratchet Shifter for it. Best of both worlds (Auto & Still able to shift also). But a V8 will be a lot more fun.

If your car is an 01 then it is not an anniversary car of any type.

All 99 v6/GT's had the 35th anniversary badge on the fenders. There were special anniversary GT's made with certain colors, options etc.
All 04 v6/GT/Mach 1's had the 40th anniversary badges on the fenders. There were also special anniversary v6/GT's with limited colors, options etc.

03 was the only odd year with a "special" car and it was a limited number of black GT's to celebrate Ford's centennial. 100th edition cars were made but it was purely cosmetic, actually just badges and floormats iirc.

Also, if your car needs basically new suspension then anyone with half a brain looking to buy it will notice that and want money taken off the asking price. Same with a dealership if they're not inept.

And you shouldn't need 8k to buy a GT. There are tons of 5spd 94-02 GT's out there for less than 6k if you look hard enough. Might require some traveling but it'd be worth it imo.

Best value out there right now is a 96-98 GT. Get it for next to nothing, PI swap it, G2G. They can look amazing with just a Cobra bumper, a hood and a wing as well.

I feel your pain. I bought an Automatic and it has been my biggest regret. I learned on my friends '13 GT it was super easy and super fun.

Ok I'll be the unpopular guy in here and just mention that the auto is going to be the more capable straight line car than the stick.

J-mod the auto in the 01, do some 4.10s, bolt ons, tune, suspension and a good converter and its a 12 second car.

Manuals are a driver's (aka real man's) car, autos are for pansies that just want to push a pedal and go

a stick driver is a full fledged driver. Auto is half of it.

Ugh, go to any legit 1/4 mile track and look at what the large majority of the fastest cars are running.
