LMAO. The only surface rust is on the pumpkin and on the axle Suspension brackets. The cool thing is you can buy a complete painted Ford Racing axle assembly from Ford Racing, complete with 3:73 gears already installed for ~$700. Way to kill 2 birds with one stone, and put your GT500 solidly in the 11's at the same time .

You call that a little surface rust? I work in the weld shop in an automotive plant if that got by our shop someone would have been fired for that. My F150 truck after 3 Canadian winters didnt look that bad. Thats brutal

The only impacts the rear axle (includes the pumpkin, brackets, etc.). Not really a big deal, kinda like having rusty rotors on a commuter car.

It's definitely there on all the S197 Mustangs, including the GT500's, but it's isolated to the rear axles assembly. Other than the fact that it is not pleasing aesthetically, it's really not a big deal to 99% of people who own the cars. To say the car is a "total rust-bucket" is to imply that the rust issue is prevalent throughout the entire car, which is clearly not the case.

Still, I know some people are going to hang on the fact that it has any rust at all, so I guess a "rust-bucket" it is.

My first car was a 1973 Ford LTD with a 400 V-8 and a C-6 transmission, and that, my friends, was a RUST bucket!!!!!!!

You gotta admit that is a little ridicilous to have a brand new car with that much rust on the rear axle.
