The one I'm looking at is a dlx with 5spd, IUP, ABS/TC, SAB, and the Anti-Theft system. The reason I like this, is because the Shaker radio is garbage, and I don't want to pay for something I'll replace anyway. Same goes for the wheels and tires, upgrade would make the Pony Package wheels a waste. This is going to be a project car, so I want to start with as few options as possible, but still want the safety features that SHOULD have come standard in the first place. If you check this link...

That job code restriction is not advertised, so you and I both know that if a customer pushes the issue, they'll most likely win. I'm just curious to see what the holdback would be on that car, and if Carman would be able to work a 24-36 month lease on one. On a side note, I think it's lame that AR dealers won't(not can't)balloon finance vehicles, even though Ford offers it as a finance option...

I forgot that it had power driver's seat as well.
IUP, PDS, SAB, ABS/TC, AAT, 5spd.

Oh, and the rebates in my region are $2000+$1000 swap cash+ $500 college rebate. That would put the price of that auto you told me about at $17,120.

#79 of 208 The Factory "safety package" discount
Sep 15, 2007 (4:36 am)
This discount was invoiced by the factory. It is not like a rebate or dealer cash that the dealer can claim.
If the car did not get the discount at invoicing you can never get it on that car.
As for a lease, you really can't mod the car, unless you plan to put everything back to stock at the end of the lease.

I'd have to disagree with your assesment of the discounts. A good example would be on the '07 GT. The automatic transmissions were being discounted to free, and still are right now. Some cars had the discount on the sticker, some didn't, but since Ford has advertised it, you get it. You just have to make sure and ask, because we all know most dealers won't tell you how to save money. I'll just mention this when we do the deal for my wife's car this week. That brings me to my next question for CarMan. Can you tell me what the prime and subprime rates are right now on the '07 Mustangs? My wife has bad credit, and I'm trying to have her build it up with this upcoming car loan. When we bought our '06 Accords, Honda was running APR specials to get rid of them. We didn't get the best rate, because her score brought our cumulative score down on the joint credit app, but we got 5.14 APR, and I didn't even have a job at the time because I had just settled down from moving back to the U.S. I guess what I'm asking is, what kind of rate could she expect at 48 and 60 months respectively, taking the low advertised rates into account with her low 500 credit score? I'd just like to know if they start from the low rate, and mark it up, the same way they would do with a regular rate, and go from there. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi jfgobraves24. Here's the info that you're looking for. Ford Credit's base lease rate and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Ford Mustang Convertible GT with 15,000 miles per year are 6.5% and 59%, respectively. The residual value for an otherwise identical lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher. Ford is currently providing $1,000 bonus cash on this car in most regions and an additional $500 lease cash on it in select areas.

Why would you lease a project car? That makes no sense.
