Rumor has it that incentives on Mustang are coming as sales are off since the start of 2007.
Also, not all dealers sell below invoice, and once a sales man finds out he has the car you want, why should he sell it below invoice.
With inventories as low as they are. Dealers can be pretty sure they are going to sell every Mustang they have so there is not the same kind of incentive to take a short deal as there was 2 years ago before the "Family Plan" with employee pricing.
Also not all dealers have the same pay plan as Zippos. I get salary plus commission and no "minis".

We searched five states on Ford's website (which, btw, is a pita) and couldn't find a reasonable in-stock match to what we wanted. We weeded-out a lot of dealerships through email & phone, and talked to several that we liked. Even if they have better resources than the Ford website, they still couldn't find an in-stock close match. Most prices on an ordered car ranged from invoice to inv+$500; rebates would apply if available when delivered. Of course, a lot of the weeded-out dealers said things such as, "we're very competitive, when you come in, we'll prove it" and "usually close to sticker, but come-on down, we'll talk!"
In the end, we ordered exactly what we wanted for invoice plus TTL and minus any rebates/incentives available when delivered. TTL matches DMV charges - no upcharges or extra fees. Around here, you have to watch for that.

I have test driven two 2007 GT manual convertibles. One at Wareham Ford and one at Bonnell Ford. The first one shifted smoothly but the front end vibrated. The second one shifted really rough like driving a different model. So, I'm a little discouraged...also don't want to buy ahead of additional incentives. Your final price of $27,515 seems very good...that is for the ragtop, right?

What better incentives are you waiting for? The GT has $1,000 cash back plus free automatic transmission. There might be 0% financing but probably just on the v6 not the GT. Last spring they didn't have anything on the GT's. Do you know something that we don't. I'm thinking about making an offer on a GT/CS and I appreciate your advice.

Ford has hinted to the press that new incentives are on the way to help move Mustangs. New programs start 4/3/07.

better deals? really?
1000 retail customer cash
645 auto trans
995 bonus customer cash.
2640 off?? total?? can it get much better???? if you want a car today, seems like its the thing to do...
now after browsing the vehicles out there, they don't have one even close to what i want.... so i'll have to order and be left with whatever they're offering when the car comes in....I see some posts on a dealer allocation?? what is that?
#903 of 1125 Dealer allocation.

Dealers can throw as many cars as they want into the order bank but the factory will only schedule a car for production if the ordering dealer has a unit of allocation.
Just make sure your dealer uses a priority of 10.
Make sure you discuss any options that are under commodities restriction. Usually the 18" wheels are in limited availability. This way you can have a more realistic idea of when your car might come in.
My Mustang V6 took about 8 weeks to get because I ordered manual trans.

Has anybody received all three rebates? I was told at the dealer today that you could take the $1000+$645 or the $1000+$995 but not all three rebates.
Very interested to know, since I am having a Mustang GT Auto being delivered next week from another dealer. Still think I am getting a good price with $1995 cash back and X-plan pricing.

I think the $995 is for the older Vin's, pre 9/06. That's when the auto was stickered at $995. The new ones are stickered at $645. Basicly I think you just get the auto for free what ever it was stickered for plus $1,000.

Do you think the Gt's are going to be included? If not 0%, maybe lower than the current incentive?
Did they not have a 0% last April on most cars?
