    I got what I thought was a '94 GT red w/red and black interior. I got the title out the other day so I can get it changed from salvage to rebuilt. It says 1994 Ford Mustang GT/GTS. Does that mean the car is a GTS? And what are those? Just wondering if it is rare or anything...

    because either a gt or a gts would be the same insurance, both the same mustang body, same motor, power windows and locks shouldn't
    change your payment, all insurance sees is a ford mustang with a 5.0 under the hood. it says the same thing on my insurance card
    (gt/gts) if you think it might be you could get the carfax report on your car and see for sure. O0

    The only way to tell 100% if you have a GTS is to see if you have ABS. You could get leather seats, spoilers, CD players, etc as options on a GTS. ABS was the only thing you could not get.

    Best way to tell is drive on some gravel road than hit the brakes hard :rollinglaugh: or just drive the car on slush and snow than try to stop.

    It is my understanding by the article, and a direct quote "Ford did away with the GTS designation in 1996, replacing it with the 248A package."

    yeah forgot about it only being a 95 thing so if you really have a 96 GTS does that mean it's woth more?
