Hello. Lurker Jr. here. Still looking for a reasonable deal on a gt350 up here in Canada. A few 2016 with track pack out there so am tempted. One has no stripes and I was wondering if there is a way of telling if original owner (its on its 2nd owner so history is sketchy) took off the stripes before he 3m vinyl wrapped it or not. Any ideas? I"ve tried a few spam sites to find the window sticker with little success.

I looked around online for that, but the links given didnt work. Wasn't so serious about the car (looking at a couple) to pay any money for that little piece of info, yet!

Make sure you input the VIN in the second input box from the top instead of the “been verified” ad that comes first.

Even though it's in german, try checking the VIN in my Mustang Tracking tool. It directly connects to Ford and shows the OEM build pictures of your car - I'm just not quire sure if it still get's data for 2016 models. And don't worry, it's not saving any data on the server.

thanks all. Had a few generous members check for me! No stripes from factory. I have found out the hood (and other high wear parts fo the car) has 3m vinyl wrap on it, so probably won't put stripes on it anyway (unless the 3m stuff is garbage and needs to come off. Any opinions about 3m?
