Used Car of the Day: 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

Today's UCTOD is in a color combo that yours truly loves. It's a blue-with-white-racing-stripes 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.

The seller asks $57K for a 5,500-mile car that obviously hasn't been driven much.

Given my own limited experience with manual-transmission GT350s, I hope the buyer gets out and drives it a bit more.

There aren't a lot of other details here, but we're guessing that a mostly-garaged, low-mileage, seven-year-old car is probably stock or close to it and has been well-maintained.

Give it a look here if you have a thing for Shelbys and the scratch needed to take this Utah-based car home.

    In my opinion, he wants 15% to 20% too much. If I wanted the car, I'd offer him $50k and consider that generous.

    "I hope the buyer gets out and drives it a bit more."

    • I hope the seller learns to park. (The Stellantis parked next to it does not have the right shade of blue paint to match; the door ding is going to stand out.)

      Is this a Utah thing? Several of the vehicles in the first picture seem to be aiming to align the passenger side of the vehicle with the parking lot stripe.

      (Regardless, the Mustang parking job is a clear Fail.)

  • Lorenzo 1 million barrels is 42 million gallons. The country uses 368 million gallons a DAY. The reserve was set aside after Hurricane Sandy caused a gasoline shortage for emergency vehicles. The hurricane season starts on June 1 and is predicted to be active. Nice going.

  • EBFlex Welp the corpse is at it again. They think they can buy votes by selling off from the SPR. The best thing they could do to get votes is close the border and start deporting people. That would guarantee them a win in November. As of right now though, they are not doing that and Trump is rising in the polls every day.
  • Jalop1991 What is this "dealer" thing Ford speaks of?
  • Picard234 So this release amounts to 2.7 hours of gasoline consumption in the US. You won't even see a penny. The administration is draining the reserves for political optics, nothing more.
