About “Snow White”

Just bought my first mustang. I had to travel over two hundred mile's to find the one I truley loved. What I like most is the new head lights. They are prutty exspensive but looks great. Also I had the tell pipe changed to crome that give's it a deep muscle tone loving it. 5 speed stick shift give's me great control for speed can't wait to encounter my fist street race........

About “My First Car”

This is my first car. I was looking forever on craigslist for a cheap car. i didn't care what or if it ran. i found this under hyundai and saw it was located not even 3 miles away. I paid $250 for the car in August/September. it didnt run and it does need lots of work. I got it running the first time for $10.39. that was for spark plugs. As far as history goes. i know the guy was doing custom work and simple repair/rebuilds. the car is from north carolina. only rust is located in the spare tire compartment which leaks in from under the rear side window and a small bubble under tailgate. the cars biggest problem is the previous owner snapped one of the bolts that secures the fuel rail. i have rigged it to work but i want to repair it.

Factory Options for “Snow White”

In 1994 the Mustang underwent its first major redesign in fifteen years. Code named "SN-95" by Ford, it was based on an updated version of the rear-wheel drive Fox platform called "Fox-4." The new styling by Patrick Schiavone incorporated several styling cues from earlier Mustangs.[36] For the first time since 1973, a hatchback coupe model was unavailable.

The base model came with a 3.8 OHV V6 (232 cid) engine rated at 145 bhp (108 kW) in 1994 and 1995, or 150 bhp (110 kW) (1996–1998), and was mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission or optional 4-speed automatic. Though initially used in the 1994 and 1995 Mustang GT, Ford retired the 302 cid pushrod small-block V8 after nearly 40 years of use, replacing it with the newer Modular 4.6 L (281 cid) SOHC V8 in the 1996 Mustang GT. The 4.6 L V8 was initially rated at 215 bhp (160 kW), 1996–1997, but was later increased to 225 bhp (168 kW) in 1998.[37]

For 1999, the Mustang received Ford's New Edge styling theme with sharper contours, larger wheel arches, and creases in its bodywork, but its basic proportions, interior design, and chassis remained the same as the previous model. The Mustang's powertrains were carried over for 1999, but benefitted from new improvements. The standard 3.8 L V6 had a new split-port induction system, and was rated at 190 bhp (140 kW) 1999–2004,[38] while the Mustang GT's 4.6 L V8 saw an increase in output to 260 bhp (190 kW) (1999–2004), due to a new head design and other enhancements. There were also three alternate models offered in this generation: the 2001 Bullitt, the 2003 and 2004 Mach 1, as well as the 305 bhp (227 kW) (1999) 320 bhp (240 kW) (2001–2002),[39][40] and 390 bhp (290 kW) 2003–2004[41] Cobra.
