I recently joined to find information about true valuations of Special Edition Mustangs. I have owned three Mustangs during my lifetime. My first one was a red 1967 Mustang 390 GTA Fastback and my second one was a blue 1973 Mustang Mach 1 Fastback. Back in 2000, my son pointed out a zinc yellow 2000 Mustang GT at my local Ford dealer. I did like the zinc yellow color and the design of the 2000 Mustang GT. My 2000 Mustang became my fun car that I used for touring and just for fun driving. I had other vehicles to go to work and run errands such as shopping. At the time, I had no idea about special edition Mustangs and if they were worth more than a standard production. There were times that I thought about trading it in or selling it. But when I found out it was a special edition, I decided to keep it and have historic license plates put on once the Mustang turned 25 years old on 2025. When I took it to the Ford dealer for brake work a couple of years ago, the employees mentioned how pristine and new the Mustang appeared. My Mustang was garaged and stored winters to protect it from road salt. It did get caught in a couple of rains. It had a little over 32,000 miles and it was pure stock with no modifications. The exterior paint is all original and not a single scratch or dent except for a couple small paint chips around the headlights. Unfortunately for me, my prized Mustang was totaled earlier this year when a semi truck struck a car from behind and pushed it into another vehicle. I was coming from the opposite direction on a two lane road and could not avoid the first car and semi when they both went left of center over the double yellow center line. The Spring Edition or Spring Feature, as some call it, was about a $990 option which shared a couple of the 35th Anniversary Edition appearance items, mainly the hood and side scoops. There were a total of 3091 Spring Edition Mustangs produced in 2000. There were only 917 zinc yellow Spring Editions produced since zinc yellow was only used on the Spring Edition and not on any other 2000 Mustangs. I know that the value of a car is what a willing seller and a willing buyer will pay. NADA price guides has some Special Edition Mustangs listed but not the 2000 Spring Edition. while researching the past few weeks, I came upon many 35th Anniversary Editions that were not valued correctly, especially in insurance auction lots. There were some true 35th Anniversary Editions valued as common 1999 Mustang GTs. I have been checking sales of limited production Mustangs and see some 1999 Mustangs selling at a premium, even by dealerships. A 35th Anniversary fender badge does not mean that the 1999 Mustang is a true 35th edition. A coin such as a quarter is only worth 25 cents to me but to a coin collector might be worth much more. The same could apply to any car sought by willing buyers. I have seen some older cars in pristine condition in a dealership showrooms selling for almost what a new car would cost.
