Well, i would have to say go with the 96, just because of the low mileage. Even though they replaced the engine at 55k, doesnt mean the car is gonna be fine. You still have a lot of miles on everything else, such as your other misc parts like your rear end, transmission, ball joints, etc etc etc. Just little stuff to worry about going out. But i do have a ? though, why the vert?

Well first off your in the 96-98 forum...so il go with the 96...


But also in the long run the 96 will last you longer. Also with such few miles its fairly new (you get my point). The 96 also was probobly beaten alot less.

For the 2001, if they replaced the motor at 55k... they either beat the car that badly or something went wrong... Also with 170k on the tranny it should of been replaced a while ago. You still have 120k on the new motor. Which on its own is almost getting ready for replacment.

Id go with the 96, the body style is way sexier in my opinion plus its got lower mileage on it. New Edge Mustangs, ehhhh....they kinda look...razorish? If you get what I mean here...

Definitely the 96. That 01 has a LOT of miles on it. even with the new motor its a decent bit.

The tranny and the rest of the body will have 170k worth of miles on it. Thats body flex, suspension worn, axles, drive train everything is tired at that point. I recommend the 96 for the fact that essentially. the 96 is a "newer" car for less money.

i like the sn95 body better so i say the 96. And like everyone is saying, just cause the motor has low miles, everything else doesnt. So you will have to worry about all the little things going wrong.
