    Mustang gts or 248a value?

    well I just figured out that I have a Mustang 248a or GTS?...I wish It didnt have a gay wing..but it does.....anyways..since its a 96 gts and there was only 5800 made is this rare or worth any more than a normal gt?

    How positive are you that it is a 248 GT?
    Sure its not just a completely de-optioned GT? As I was under the impression all GTS' and 248's had no spoilers.

    Do you have foglights? In 96 248A's like my car didn't have foglights, nothing power except for mirrors. Mine did come with a wing and it actually might have come with black bumper inserts but I"m not sure if that's stock or not since I bought mine used.

    You have no power windows, only power windows???? huh?

    Also I too was under the impression that the GTS did NOT come with a spoiler, it was bare bones NO options (no mach460, no power anything, no spoiler...)

    I have no power nothing, no fog's, but a rear wing. I thought they quit the GTS after 95?

    From what I understand, the GTS name was discontinued after 95. My car is that 248 whatever. It is basically a V6 mustang with the V8 in it. Mine came with a spoiler on it. Only power options are the mirrors.

    the gts stopped in 97. As far as i know they didn't have wings but then again someone might have put a wing on it. but anyway, i really like the manual doors. thats save a good 30 pounds probably :)

    I sometimes wished I had power windows. At least power passenger window.

    why you want power windows? they are heavier, but if your like me that has a vert and an auto, a little more weight ain't gonna spoil your day lol. I'm already driving a 2 ton terror lol

    I just don't like having to reach over and roll down the passenger side window. A power window there would just be a convenience.

    My car is a 248A so it is a stripper but I still have a wing. I doubt the person that had the car before me put a wing on it because the rest of the car was bone stock. I think 95 GTs's did NOT have wings but the 96 and 97 248A's DID have wings. :dunno:

    to answer the rare factor, no it's not worth anymore money now because it's not a classic and most people really won't care that there were only 5800 made, just if it has power windows, locks, and whatnot (the luxurys)

    In my opinion In 20 or 30 years people will be looking for them and when you find one it will be rare and most likely worth alot of money because of the limited production. There were over 650,000 70 chevelles made and about 60 and down were ss, even less with the 454 option , only about 15k with that option, look how much those are selling for, some didn't even have tachs or clocks or air conditioning, again it's just my opinion.

    i think that they are cool since they are different, but like the dude said, it will take a while for them to be worth more.

    Technically it stopped in 95, 96 was the 248A.
    But that'd be splitting hairs...its the same concept.

    I bought my car new, it came off the truck and into my hands, it has a wing, and I didn't put it on, just to clarify. Mine is the 248a package also.
