ok, ive had assumed my 95 was a GTS. ive seen some posts saying some stuff, but id like to know more about these GTSs because i recently discovered it really is a GTS and for some reason it came with a spoiler from which ive learned that GTSs didnt. so is there a place where i can learn about them alot more ?

The GTS was basically a stripped GT. They came with cloth seats from the V6, power mirrors but no power windows and no power locks and no power seats, no foglights, and no rear spoiler. But if was available on the V6, you could always order it.

There is an old thread on corral.net covering the GTS.
1995 GTS "Registry" Thread - Ford Mustang Forums : Corral.net Mustang Forum

This covers the GTS briefly.

This also covers the GTS.

All a GTS is, is Fords attempt to keep the LX. Which was the bare bones V8 car they made in foxes with no bells and whistles. They got rid of it after 95.

Its not a collectors edition by any means. And at this point in time in history, it may actually be worth less than a GT because of the lack of power anything.

That said, its your car so you do what you want with it. But if your looking to keep its value by retaining it as an original GTS, your not really going to gain anything out of it besides self satisfaction at this point in time. Who knows, maybe it will be worth more than a GT in 20 years. They did make less of them so who knows......No one ever thought the classics would be bringing 6 figures in some models so who knows.

You could actually make a very convincing Cobra R clone with a GTS..
The cobra R didn't have power anything either.

Kinda backwards; the GTS was Ford's way of using up the rest of the 5.0s they had laying around before the switch to the 4.6L. They were a V6 in everything but drivetrain.

My old GTS had power locks but nothing else. It too had a spoiler when I bought it but it was clearly added by one of the previous owners because the drilled holes were raggedy. It was centered properly though which was nice.

I hated not having power options, which is why I used my totaled out 95 GT (which I bought back from ins. company) and swapped all the GT's wiring harnesses into the GTS in order to get back all my options: cruise, power windows, mach 460, etc etc. I also had to swap the entire doors from my GT as well to make it easier.

I agree, there isn't really any value to these cars. And I wanted to add that my FL titles called all my 94/95 GT's GT/GTS.

EDIT: Looking back at the project pics of my GTS it actually didn't have power locks! I guess I didn't spend enough time with it as a GTS (actually never drove it that way) to familiarize myself with all it's differences.

I think the GTS will have some value in 20-30 years, but not until then. Collectors get stupid for "rare" options like that, especially rare options that people don't value, thus causing them to destroy most examples.

well they did say in the sites i found that power stuff was options. basicly all the gt stuff was optional. basicly a bare bones GTS was just that. A V8 motor and drivtrain. i like it though, i love it actually. if i want electronic creature comforts i just plop myself in my 98 and cruise. i love the idea that my GTS has little to nothing and everything manual cuz thats going to be my "fun" car/ the last of the "American" designed Mustang tradional engine car. i dont look at this car and think about the resale value. matter of fact i dont look at any of my Mustangs like that because i dont ever plan to resell them. i baught them, there mine, period. im very passionate about things like that. just as Chevy commercials say "Chevies run deep", well Ford Mustangs run deep with me. but getting back to it all, the GTS was the last time Ford ever did the "Bare Bones" model.

yup, I used Sem's black dye. It was the "trim" dye but it worked out really well for interior pieces and was durable because it was made for the outside trim!! SEM Products :: Trim Black

yeah mine doesnt have ABS, it only had a spoiler and the GT lights, and the 4way power driver seat and thats it. and OMG! The Whistler, that freaking car is beautiful. the only thing diffrent in my car is that they swapped the seats out for the new edge ones and the console too. so i dont have the flap for the drink holder or the ash tray anymore. yeah thats crazy 99fiveO. i guess thats one way to change the color of your car though. lol. the whistler, did you have to build the block for the SC or can you leave it stock ? cause i freaking love Kennebelle SCs!

If you keep the boost reasonable you can run with the stock block all day long!
