    Thinking of selling my Town Car for a

    Thinking of selling my Town Car privately (2003 with 10,000 miles) and ordering up a 2007 Mustang GT Convertible, in Grabber Orange, with black cloth roof & black leather with full aluminum accent package, Emission Systems Override, 5-Speed Automatic with Overdrive, Dual power Seats with heat & auto Dimming R/V Mirror, Sport Appearance Pkg., Luxury Interior UPgrade Pkg., Shaker 1000 Stereo/CD & MP3, Cloth Roof, Top Boot, Polished 18" GTR Wheels with Pony Spinners, Driver & Passenger SIDE air bags, Anti Theft System, Duck Tail Spoiler, Signal Mirrors, Sequential Taillamps, "Mustang" Door Sill Plates, and Hood Struts.

    Get done, it's like $ 42,700 ! Look over at 2007 Town Car, Super Loaded & it's $ 46,020, Gezz, only $ 3,000 more. Seems like alot more car, somehow.

    Sounds nice but that is a lot of coin for a GT model Sandy. Personally, I'd get a nice second hand low mileage '05 and customize from there, but thats me. Do what makes you happy. Be ready to get nailed hard with the sale of the Town Car as they are virtually worthless after 3-5 years compared to what they cost new.

    Go for a GT500 Convertible. My Dad's GT500 coupe is scheduled for delivery in late August/early September. The convertible is still a tad under $50K I believe

    Sandy, why a Mustang? I thought you were a luxury car lover.

    Wow....I'm speechless....

    Good luck, although $42,000 is a good amount of coin for a Mustang. I personally don't care for the convertible, the 'Stang loses all of its' beautiful lines without the Fastback Coupe look. But then again, I'm not writing the check. Just one piece of advice that you should follow, DO NOT get the Shaker 1000 system, it is COMPLETE crap! I've heard the 1000's and the 500's (standard) and the 1000 sounded grainey compared to the clearness of the 500. And what does the 1000 cost, $700 I believe? The 500 sounds clear but stay away from the 1000.

    Go for a GT500 Convertible. My Dad's GT500 coupe is scheduled for delivery in late August/early September. The convertible is still a tad under $50K I believe
    Anything car with the name "Shelby" will sell like hotcakes. They look nice but it's hard to justify a $15,000-$20,000 increase from the base Mustang GT. It's good to see Carroll back in the car game though, definetly a legend.

    Yeah, guys, I think Sandy is using sarcasm. All your arguments were, in a subtle way, his.

    Sandy:
    I'd keep my virtually new '03 Town Car, and not give up a penny in needless depreciation to the dealer.

    Mustang?? I don't think so ... you drive one of the smoothest rides in the world ... to you, the TC is still worth every bit of the $40k you dropped on her.
    I think you're teasing us.

    Sandy that's not right!! Keep the TC. But somehow I think you're laughing as you look at this thread. Hmmm I smell a Sandy prank here.

    Re: Thinking of selling my Town Car for a

    Okay, in order I will attempt to answer...

    Destroyer: I have a willing to wait buyer for the Town Car @ $24,000.
    I paid $ 40,000 + 6% NJ sales tax. There was a $4,000 Factory Rebate, so it was really $44,000, after a $2,400 Dealer Discount. Window sticker was $ 46,500.00

    96 Fleetwood: All Shelbys are Sticks. I can't drive a stick. Must be Auto !

    "I-Love-Caddies" : I am a Luxury car lover, BUT the '07 'Stang rings my bells! It's the best "retro" job ever done, and from what I've seen it's a terrific car.

    Speedy:- I agree on the "more Mustang" looks of the fastback, but I am a convertible lover at heart. Until they stopped making Luxury Converts, that was all I ever had. 1 Imperial Crown Convert - 1 DeVille Convert & 2 Eldo Converts. Then went to a couple Mustang 'Verts....

    Ted TCB:- Your statement *IS* THE reason I am home typing this and not at my Ford dealer ordering it !! I can add Nothing. This 2003 has been the #1 best car I have ever owned, and I've owned like 27-30 cars.
    5 Imperials; 3 Lincolns; 4 Cadillacs; 1 Mercury; 3 Mustangs; 1 Jeep; 2 Buicks; 2 Corvettes, 1 Chevy Impala SS; 1 Chrysler 300 Convertible; a Used AMC Pacer (to "save the Corvette from Snow); a GTO Convertible, etc, etc,
    the 2003 Town Car is #1.

    Elvis: It **IS** actually the Grabber Orange that roped me in. I LOVE that color ! I love COLOR, remember, I was the guy that ordered the Flamingo Pink Mark 7 Coupe !! I LIKE color. A GT 'Vert in Grabber Orange is HOT !

    Addison, no prank, honest people. I am really seriously thinking about doing it.

    Maybe ..... The devil in me says DO IT !
    The sane side of brain says: Take an asprin and lay down.....
    Whom do I listen to ???

    PS / Wife says, Do it if you want it.......No complaints to hear....

    Take the Asprin. Would you really be comfortable in the GT?

    Sandy, how about a super low mileage '70s Eldorado Convertible? Or a super low mileage Imperial Lebaron Convertible?


    Side note, where did you find "Grabber Orange"? I checked Ford's site and they don't show any oranges for the '06 Mustangs.

    Re: Thinking of selling my Town Car for a

    I have the 2007 color chart. Grabber Orange is new for '07.

    I-Luv-Caddies; there was never an Imperial LeBaron Convertible. The last Imperial Convert was 1968 Imperial Crown Convert. I had one, bought it brand new, fresh outta college, no job, no income. $78.00 a month car payment and $37.00 @ month car insurance. Then I got a job assembling bikes for a major mega store and made $117.00 a week. I was in heaven ! I had one heII of a hard time making those payments, but never missed one. Spent many a weekend home, alone, with zero $$$ to do anything much.
    From then on I decided it was wiser to pay cash.

    FYI, Imperial Converts were from 1957 to 1968. 12 years.
