5k: Stang Submission: 1994 Ford Mustang GT SN95

The SN-95 generation Ford Mustang was the first major update to the venerable pony car after the Fox platform replaced the Mustang II.  Technically, SN-95 was just an update on the Fox platform and was internally called the Fox-4, but most folks differentiate the SN-95 from the Fox because it was so aesthetically changed.  The new body was designed by Patrick Schiavone (who was an automotive designer for Ford, but now is VP of design for about a career circling down the drain) and featured smooth jelly-bean style rounding on almost every surface. Despite surface changes, the new Mustang continued to use the Fox's 5.0 V8.  Find this 1994 Ford Mustang GT SN95 5-spd for sale in Ann Arbor, MI for $7,000 via craigslist.  Seller submission from Alan.

The SN-95 Mustang falls somewhere between a modern classic and a modern car - an automotive limbo awaiting the junction of final judgement; one way leads to a death via crusher, the other automotive nirvana. Regardless the SN-95 is a Mustang, so likely it will be a classic in the future; certainly the Cobras will be worth something, but today the entire lineup is quite reasonably priced.

In 1994 the 5.0 V8 (if you want to get technical the 5.0 actually displaces 4.9 liters) was rated at 215 horsepower and 288 ft-lbs of torque, but it should be good for a few more with the bolt-on goodies currently attached.

The AC works and the seller still has the OE wheels/tires...what more can you ask? Email us your seller submissions here:


  1. I remember when these came out that they only rated at 215 ponies, which surprised me since the five-of from just a few years before was advertised at 225. Anyone remember why ford did this?

  2. I never heard all the details, but the 're-rating' actually happened for the 1993 model year. The 1993 5.0 was rated at 205 HP, rather than the 1992's 225. Supposedly, the engines did not change at all - only the rating/reporting method was different. As such, the 235 number for the 1993 Cobra was something like 255 in 1992 terms and the 1994 was equal to 235.

  3. Reasonably priced for a good reason. These might become more attractive with time, but gosh do they look terrible now. I'm surprised to a see a stock example, many of these Windsor SN95s got an engine build, for better or worse.
