5.0 vs gt500

Would any one trade in a 11 5.0 prim coupe(37k) for a pre 10 gt500 convertible with less than 20k miles if payments were almost equal. I ask bc i miss my convertible so i would only trade up to the shelby. Can't afford a new one and could wait until the 15s comes out and start again depending on how they look. Thoughts?

I would deffenatly make the trade if you could get the gt500 without being upside down on the loan.

Shelby turns more heads than a 5.0 and I think they look a lot more bad *** IMO

Good luck with whatever you do!

, I'd wait til 2013s depreciate if anything but that will still cost you more. If you want just the convertible part about the deal sure, if you looking at performance and handling i wouldn't do it.

Re: 5.0 vs gt500

the only reason I would say no is because I don't like the fact that it still had cast iron block and it was nose heavy... that said, only a pulley swap and tune away from an easy 60+ more hp

That why I got a 2013 GT California Special vert, Race Red loaded, this is a bad a$$ looking ride, very close to the GT500 in looks plus I need a automatic, My loaded down GT/CA Special, with all options MSRP just over $48K, with A plan priceing just under $42K, I also have a eCoupon from Barrett-Jackson car auction $500 and there's a rebate on the GT' of $1K, I'm getting a lot of car for the $$$. This ride has reto muslce car look, I dig it, I just sold a 2011 GS Vert. Vette, I always needed an extra seat, this Mustang is very cool!!! I feel very bless, most of the Vette crowd is not my kind of people, I have own over 6 Vettes, this is my 2nd Mustang. My 1978 Stang hatchback was my #1st new car. I'm glad to be part of the group!!! Ride on...

Trade it!! The exhaust note of those gt500's is beastly. I love the new 5.0's but if it's going to be even money wise you might as well do it, can make more power easy as well.

I don't think I would, I've been spoiled on the stuff like sync and all the interior features. Going to a Pre 2010 would feel like the stone age coming back at you. However, you are looking at an opportunity to own one of the most historically significant cars with the passing of Mr. Shelby and all. It is indeed a tough choice, good luck!

If you really want a Shelby vert. Wait until the '13's have had a chance to depreciate.

pulley/tune will give you far more than 60hp. Mine stock was 360/360 and with intake/exhaust/pulley/tune I am at 472/493 of course its just the 4.6L version the 5.4 does more for the input.

What? Lol what gt500 has a 4.6l? What 5.0 has the same tq as hp?

Edit...ah you talking about a svt cobra?

If it was my daily driver I would stay with the 5.0, but of its just a toy and weekend warrior then definitely go with the gt500.
