1964 1/4 they were straight six cylinders.

They also had a floor mounted three speed manual.
There were a few and I mean """VERY FEW""" 221 V8's that were probably left over from the Falcon/Fairlane era. It sure would be nice to find one of these in a barn somewhere. I had a friend that had one and traded it in on a 289 when they came out. Then the 260 were in some of the early Mustangs. I had one in my 64 1/2 convertible which I traded it in on the 289 271 horsepower V8. At least my 260 Ci did have a four speed manual.
Those were the good old days and no matter what Mustang you bought, It was a MUSTANG and everybody drooled over all of them.
I have a friend that bought a gold six cylinder three speed convertible brand new when they very first came out and I think he still has it. The next time I go up to Delaware I gotta look him up and see. If I go to the American Muscle show in Media I'll stop by and see if I can track him down.

I guess a reason people get the 3.7 is for gas mileage but doesn't the coyote get crazy good mpg too?

Yes it does

The Coyote gets excellent MPG, It has way more power then anybody needs ( Except for the one's that want it) It is a great powerful very reliable engine. I love it, But the Cyclone V6 is also a great powerful engine that has more horsepower then you need and excellent MPG.
The only difference is::::
Some love their V8
Some love their V6

Neither engine is bad. Different, "YES" Bad "NO"
I personally like my 3.7 Cyclone V6 and don't even think of a V8. I would like to have a manual transmission but due to back, Hip & leg problems it is out of the question for me. I'm just glad that Ford puts a great Automatic transmission in these Mustangs.
Anybody that knocks either of these engines in our Mustangs are either really un-informed or just plain stupid. Both are good and suit different people. It would really be a tragedy if all Mustangs were the exact same. They are not because of the different engines, transmissions, colors, packages, rear end ratio's, interiors, and the best of all===PERSONAL MODIFICATIONS we do to our Mustangs.

Got the V6 and love it. I haven't driven the v8 so I can't compare them. The v6 goes very well. 305 hp is respectable and the car is quick. If you're not looking for the the top of the line power you should be happy with the v6.

Totally agree and if someone wants top of the line power don't get the 5.0. That's not top of the line. Gt500 is where you need to be.

Lol nobody NEEDS all that horsepower. But we all want it anyways.

Of your gonna get a mustang to mod than just buy the v8. If your getting one to keep stock or only for appearance mods than just get the v6

I got the v6 because 5.0 is in an entirely different market segment. For $20k to $25k, the only competitions were focus ST, fiesta ST, GTI, speed3 ,FRS/BRZ, WRX, 2.0T genesis coupe, v6 camero and c6 challenger, civic si, and maybe a few others.

When I got my 2014 v6 it had 3000 rebate, and that settled it for me. It was the most powerful and the cheapest car in the segment and having the correct driving wheels was just a plus.

If I were shopping in 5.0's segments there would be all kind of other options, Evo, Sti, 135i, and such. For me it wasn't v6 vs v8, it was v6 vs everything in its segment.

I'm happy with my v6's performence. while I've had more powerful cars they were in their own segment and there is no point to compare

Agree, except our V6 would do circles around:

Fiesta ST
Focus ST (maybe)
FRS/BRZ
V6 Challenger (really our V6 is as fast if not faster than the R/T)
Civic SI
Genesis Coupe 2.0T

Our direct competition is the V6 Camaro and the 3.8L Genesis Coupe. Don't like comparing our Mustang to the WRX because they are really in two different segments. AWD vs RWD, 4 or 5 door vs 2 door, turbo vs NA, etc.

Why buy a 3.7 and keep it stock? Its far less to buy a 3.7 and mod then buy a 5.0. All my mods to my 3.7 would be a must have for the 5.0. A stock 5.0 needs certain mods to bring it up to my acceptable standards and tone.

I got my V6 cheap, considering the options it already had as well.

I havent't rulled out dumping a 5.0 into it when the V6 gets plan worn out. There will be tons of them available in the boneyard if/when that time comes.

Then again, a nice used Boss may be available....then again, the suspension setup I currently have is close to that...then again, I could win the lottery and have both...

No more "and then"!

I hear you on that bro. I got my 2011 3.7 for 22,500 and that was back in October 2010. That was a good price back then for the 11 models. The base 5.0 back then were a good 7,500 dollars more and that again was for a bare bones base model.

I haven't come close to 7,500 for all my performance and appearance mods.

And it's waaaay less to buy an "old" v8 and make it 1000x faster than the new v6.

It's the circle of life. We can go back and forth all day lol. And apparently everyone here already has haha

Yet it would take more $ to make a older 2v gt be as fast a new v6. 10k in the 2v and 10k in the new v6. V6 still wins. So it goes both ways

I would not exactly call a 5.0 expensive these days:

New 2014 Ford Mustang For Sale in MD | Stock 00049605

Or if premium is your thing:

New 2014 Ford Mustang For Sale in MD | Stock 0K140299

V6 or V8

I understand there are 100 hp difference but how much of that can you really enjoy when the speed limits are low... Plus i would be paying more on gas (lower MPG, and premium gas) . So, I feel like instead of paying the extra $ for cool upgrades, I would be paying for extra HP that I might not be able to enjoy, and would make the car fuel more expensive?
I was just in that same quandry recently! although i have heard from several sources that the V8 can use 87 octane, wont give the full HP advantage though but it will not hurt the car (im sure there are different schools of thought on this subject) but yes gas mileage is less but then going from my SUV to this is not much of a difference in that area..I loved the rumble and the awesome power and speed of the GT!! the V6 is pretty impressive too, handles well.. just gotta go with what your gut is telling you.. I was going to get the V6 manual transmission but when i got into the V8 i was like this is the car for me! Good luck! which ever you decide they are both great cars! enjoy!

Buying an old V8 has nothing to do with this thread so your argument is completely irrelevant. That's like one saying buy an old V8 and making it faster than a 2014 Gt500 would be far cheaper than spending 60-65 K for the Gt500. It has nothing to with this thread. Were not debating old V8's.

I absolutely love how someone interjects about something that has absolutely nothing to do with the thread topic. Ba ha ha ha.

Matter a fact , I bet this is the same person on a different V6 mustang forum talking about old V8's. Ha ha ha. So let's keep right on topic with the OP's original question, I think they should switch their car insurance!

Or why not just buy 3.7, fully forge the engine, add boost, install additional suspension parts and make more power than than a new Corvette Z06 for far less money!

Yes the Coyote will pull timing down if you absolutely must put 87 gas in it. It has a light on the inside that says "you just put that in me?"

It is an 11:1 compression engine, don't put less then 91 in it unless you must,as recommended. 93 is best.

Is that really the compression on it?

Your right Kona Blue a fully done up / boosted 3.7 would make more power than a Z06 and eat a 5.0 for lunch.

To create a "sleeper". No one expects a plain old unbadged V6 to have any additional power then what it came from the factory....perhaps even the 5.0's.

Case in point; I was at a track one weekend (local private airport). I took my V6 Mustang out to run a few laps, and was parked to check my times. A guy about my age (old fart like me) came up and asked me what I had under the hood. I opened the hood to expopse the V6. He laughed and said he was impressed. He owned a 2012 Boss, and could not believe I was running times around the track comperable to the 5.0's. I mentioned the mods I had done (primarily suspension, but a few in the way of a tune and exhaust/intake).

He shook my hand and walked away smiling.

A guy about my age (old fart like me) came up and asked me what I had under the hood. I opened the hood to expopse the V6. He laughed and said he was impressed. He owned a 2012 Boss, and could not believe I was running times around the track comperable to the 5.0's. I mentioned the mods I had done (primarily suspension, but a few in the way of a tune and exhaust/intake).

He shook my hand and walked away smiling.
Oh snap bro. That's what I'm talking about. The 3.7's are a treasure chest with power waiting to be unleased baby. Bro, our cars can easily hang with SS Camaro's , Chargers RT's , Challenger RT's , some of the big boy V8's. Long live the 3.7 baby. Were coning out guns a blazon. Ha ha ha.

A stock 3.7 with a PROCHARGER SUPERCHARGER with absolutely no other mods makes 475+ HP , not bad at all.
