Before I retired ; the question was where on the GT350 does it say that it’s a “ Mustang “?

I'm not sure what you're asking, but let's put it this way: before the GT350, Shelby's didn't say "Ford" or "Mustang" on them anywhere - the closest they got was "SVT" on the hub caps. The GT350 has "Ford" hub caps, but it doesn't say Ford anywhere else and it still doesn't say Mustang. That's probably because, from a branding standpoint, it's not a Ford Mustang. It's a Ford Shelby GT350.

Go take a look dead center of your windshield.

I don't think it says "Mustang" anywhere on the car. I haven't ran across it anywhere yet. BUT, it does refer to it as a Mustang on the Ford website.

The only sign of it that I found was on the window sticker.

@OP, does it really matter that much. You have the best "mustang" trim. That vehicle is the halo and the reason why ecoboost sells along with 350 after market body kit sells. They want to be like Mike. Don't worry about it. :)

GT350 is something else in Mustang body. I can feel it when pressing throttle on the sharp turns. This thing is screaming and turning like no other cars I know.

Other than sharing some part numbers with the Mustang, Ford does call it a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. We also have a Mustang Owners Manual with a GT350 supplement. I know of no Mustang badges or names physically located on the car. Ford Performance branding appears on the door sills, engine strut brace and Ford on the wheel centers (as previously mentioned). My window sticker has a Cobra logo and not a Mustang.

Mine's a 2016. That's cool they changed that out. I'm sure it was inevitable.

When you select normal mode/normal suspension, you see the back end of a Mustang with a barely recognizable pony logo in the instrument cluster.

Hah! Yes, it's there - and it's on the UAW sticker on the quarter-window behind the driver's head too. Now we're up to six places.

I like that it has Mustang DNA.. the mustang logo is so iconic.. I have to say I miss seeing the running pony logo. Maybe I should add one to my grill? :like:
oh no... here comes the backlash LOL.....
