Hi Tesgt350,

Both those owners manuals should also have the owner/dealer info filled out with the SAI VIN as the warranty number.  This is the only way to prove an original Mustang owners manual came from a GT350, assuming no tampering.  I would value them equally because they both have the same pedigree.  However, the stamping would add value.  I do not recall ever seeing an original manual offered for sale.  Vern might have an idea.

In addition to what Cory said, you also need to determine if the Mustang manual is indeed an original, repros have been around a long time.

   +2  Wise advice from Cory! IMHO you would be hard pressed to find one in a Hertz car. (I am aware some did). Mine for example had the GT350 manual (1st printing , no holes) but not the Mustang manual. 6S477 is the number.

Liability for the warranty if the stamp was not done in the book is a logical incentive to have it stamped. It was supposed to have been done. If no stamp most likely a replacement book. Not to say it is not beyond the realm of possibility to not have it stamped but highly unlikely given the stakes involved.

I know of a carryover with its original Mustang Owners Manual. It has the Owner Identification information filled in - including the VIN, owner name, dealer name, etc. That manual does not have the VOID stamp in it. So the exceptions are out there.

Always are exceptions which is why I stated "Not to say it is not beyond the realm of possibility to not have it stamped" to cover that small but ever present percentage.

I think that means this car has the rare stamp delete option for the "VOID for G.T.350 Mustang owners manual. ;)
