Recommended Posts

I never knew that the 2009's offer $0 optional 3.73 gearing. Anyone currently have that gearing and how is it? Whats 1st gear redline speed?

It shows that you can order a 3.73, but I dont see one that has been ordered. I looked in the locator and none exist.

 

What I did find wierd is that you cant order a white car with blue stripes now? They are plenty in locator, but if you try to order one now it will only let you order black or alloy stripes?

Prequalification Statement = Majority of dealers.

 

LOL.. that doesnt surprise me at all. I'd say over 90% of these cars are ordered unsold by the dealer that has no clue and/or doesnt care. Then the rest that are custom ordered still depend on the clueless dealer to inform them about the option list and thats probaly one of the options they overlook and dont tell the buyer about. I guess that what this forum is great for, to inform.

You can't order a GT500 with 3.73. Not an option.

 

They do come standard on the KR but not available on the GT500. So dealers can't order it if they wanted to. The only option is to order it aftermarket.

 

The 3.31 is the only way it comes from the factory.

Hmm... looks like we have a debate. If what you say is fact, then why does it show as an option for 2009 and it didnt show for an option in 2008?

KR's were made in 2008 also.

(just trying to get to the bottom of this)

No, it does not show you can order a 3.73.

 

Locator shows a 3.73 as a choice to select but that is only because of the KR. The 3.73 comes standard on the KR.

 

The 3.31 comes standard on the GT500 and there is no optional 3.73 available.

BTW, that does not show it is an option.

 

The question I asked was....WHERE does it show it is an option.

 

You are merely repeating someone else. Have YOU seen this listed somewhere showing this is an option available on a regular GT500?

 

The order guide does not list it as option. The price list does not list it as an option.

 

The ONLY place it is listed is as being part of the KR package.

I believe it shows as an option on Yahoo Autos - which obviously isnt accurate :) NOT an option :)

Locator shows 3.73 for 08 as well. But again, that is for KR's only.

 

07 does not show 3.73 at all because there were no KR's for 07

That's why you can never trust 3rd party sites. They are not always accurate.

 

You would amazed at how many people actually insist they are accurate over what the manufacturer says. Even Ford sometimes makes mistakes on their sites. For example, I believe they showed a picture of a blue GT500 Convertible with over the top stripes which is not available with over the top stripes unless you add them after market or unless it is a red stripe package vert which is only available in black or white with red stripes only.

HEY GUYS,

 

JUST WANTED TO JUMP INTO THE FRAY ADD MY $.02

 

I WORKED AT FORD MOTOR CO. STERLING AXLE PLANT IN QUALITY CONTROL.

 

SPECIFICALLY, IN THE AREA THAT PRODUCED THE MUSTANG AXLES ASSEMBLIES.

 

THERE WHERE NO AXLES SHIP TO AUTO ALLIANCE FOR THE GT500 THAT HAD A 373 RING N PINION.

 

LIKE SHELBYDUDE HAS STATED, THE OPTION FOR THE 373 WAS WRONG.

 

THE AXLE THAT WAS SHIPPED TO AUTO ALLIANCE WITH THE 373 RING N PINION WAS FOR THE GT500KR.

 

DO NOT BELIEVE EVERY THING YOU READ.

It does show as an OPTION in CONCEPTS. I tried to copy it but I couldnt. I understand its not an option and is standard on the KR, but Yahoo is correct to show that its an option. The code for the 3.73 axle is 457. Yahoo just copies the order guide and prints it. They dont know what you can and cant get together.

 

So to sum this up. Its SHOWS as an option, but its only availble on the KR and its not an option but standard.

 

 

OK now I have confused myself :hysterical::hysterical:

Did you spec out a 2009 GT500 and submit it with that option code to see if it takes the order? I bet it comes up saying it requires the KR option code or something with that selection.

Didnt copy very well but at least you can see it IS listed as a N/C option

This may shed some light on it. This is a window sticker for a current in stock vehicle. It lists the 3.73 as an added option. BUT!!!!, if you look a little further down it has the SHELBY GT500KR PACKAGE $-210. So looks like you don't get it.

It let me order the car with the 373 gear, but wouldnt let me order a white car with blue stripes.

 

I change stripes and it didnt SHOW on the order. I understand that its NOT available, but it does show as an option and when you order the car it does NOT say it has to be a KR.

 

But understand I agree that YOU CAN NOT get a GT500 with a 3.73 gear from Ford unless its a KR, but it does show as an option and will let you SUBMIT the order. But the order DID NOT show a 3.73 gear.

:hysterical2: Actually they did it to keep me happy :hysterical: and so SAI can use that combo for their next creation (I.E. GT350)

I thought you would like that! :hysterical::hysterical::hysterical:

Is there any way possible to order the KR and have it delivered without shipping to SAI? Say on MSO title and for racing purposes only?

No, because SAI does the upfit work on them.
