We are in the middle of getting out of a toyhauler into a motorhome. Need to replace truck and wife likes the Mustang convertibles. It seems from looking at all info I have been able to find that towing an '03 Mustang with manual trans. should be no problem. Everything I've seen points at the 6cyl models. Now for the dumb question, does the same apply for the GT with v8 and manual trans. Anyone know?

Thanks

Brant

The last Ford towing guide that lists the Mustang (manual trans) as towable 4 wheels down is 2004. There is no mention of Mustang as towable in the newer towing guides. I would try to find someone at Ford who will authorize 4 down towing in writing before I would tow a Mustang. I am not certain about the Mustang manual transmission but some manuals are not towable because turning the output shaft does not lube the rest of the transmission.

You can contact REMCO and see about a pump to convert the auto to towable of a drive shaft disconnect.
