Those aren't good prices.

Good deals are 20k mile 11/12s for $20k and a 26k mile Boss for $28k

Here's the Boss

http://www.myclassiccars.net/forsale.html

And yes it is reduced to $28k now on SVTP.


My Classified-Fu is superior

Well, the Boss seems to be a really good deal, but $25k for a 13GT is a great price and less than 20k miles................maybe back East cars are cheaper................

That Boss is located in NoCal. You could (and maybe still can) get a 2014 GT base model for $27k out the door brand new so when I see a used one for $25k... meh...

Had I not been $1300 upside down on my trade my GT would have been $26,000 OTD. As the deal went it was $27,300. I already see real world prices falling with everyone except the local tax man.

Sorry, I didn't see that it was from NorCal, but surprised it hasn't sold and they even reduced the price............maybe some hard miles.
As for getting a 2014 for $27k, I had tried for almost 2 months and the cheapest New one was over $30k.
I got my 14 with Track Pack, Brembo's, Recaro seats and and it came with Airaid intake and SCT tunner...........for less than $27 and it only had 2,700 miles. The original owner traded it on a 2014 Corvette....go figure...............plus I traded my 2008 Hemi Ram1500 in on the car (the truck was my tow truck for the my drag car...had 57,000 miles) and got $16.5k........all of this from a Chevrolet Dealer.
Now the Boss would have great, but I'm happy with my Mustang and so far have no complaints.

The price difference is nearly $5-7k. You could located a bunch of cars in a certain area and compare them online and then when you have enough cars to choose from then fly over there and check it out for a couple days. Once you're satisfied then you could purchase it and ship it back or drive it back.

If I get transferred to the PacWest (lots of orders flying around this spring) I'm very likely going to HAVE to have a car shipped in or at least do a fly out/drive back. I've seen a lot of the cars I like on the East Coast, Texas, Cali and then scattered sparsely over the rest of the country.

Let me know if you get out the Pacific Northwest, more specially Portland/Eugene/Corvallis and I'd would be happy to show you around. Depending on what type of car you are looking for I do know a few people who deal in specialty cars, early Mustangs, Chevys, and hot rods up and down the Willamette Valley.

Hey thanks for the offer. I would be stationed by Seattle but the wife and I would for sure do a day trip or weekend to Portland. Might take you up on that next year if I do get the orders.

Put at least an aftermarket shifter bracket while your down there, corrects 90% of it. The MGW shifter fixes 99% of the missed shifts. I am putting a bracket on mine this winter since its easy.

I just like the looks of the extractors!!

If you can budget the money for a 13-14's OP, then do it. They just look so much better. Better taillights, better front bumper (that looks like GT500s), heat extractor vents in the hood, etc. Slightly revised engine components and an official rating of 420hp.... up a few from 11-12. Though its mostly just a higher marketing #, more than a stronger motor.

There is no way in hell the 13/14 front bumper looks better than the 11/12. But opinions are like ******** I suppose...

Yes but like ******** some opinions/******** smell worse or better than others. My ******* agrees that the 13/14 does look more aggressive in a better way a la GT500. Lol

Lol its all good. Yeah they all smell, some worse than others. I'm the crazy person who thinks the best looking front end of them all is the 07-09 GT500.

I drive 75 miles every day to work and back (total) with a manual and it's no big deal. I also live in Los Angeles. So you can absolutely deal with it if you want to. Claiming that Los Angeles traffic makes a manual not practical is silly. It's almost video game easy to shift these newer Mustangs.

Also, my favorite stealth upgrade on the 14s was the cabin air filter. The parts department at Galpin Ford kept saying it didn't have one on the V6s (just the V8s). Then I showed the guy the actual part. Also, the 13-14s have a lot of good features like how it turns off the interior lights (even the dome lights) after 10 minutes or so if the key is removed from the ignition. It's smarter than I am sometimes

I bought my 14 GT 6spd brand new still in the goofy plastic wrapping from the factory for $27,000 out the door here in Texas. Good deals are out there. And when you can get a brand new one for that low the thought of paying $20,000 for an 11 with 50,000 miles is flat out stupid.
And is an auto a better car for the drag strip? Absolutely. But if you're getting it to be a daily driver you really want an auto? Your call obviously. Buying an automatic GT seems so pointless to me. I would rather drive my car than my car drive me. But that's just me. "The internet racer"- what a dumb comment.
