A few comments:
-Avis also has Mustang coupes listed as available for your time frame
-It's worth trying to return by Monday before Noon. Weekend rates typically end then, so you might get a cheaper rate (sometimes even better to do rental A returning at 11:55am Monday & rental B from noon-[whenever you're really done with it Monday]). Requires an extra trip to the airport, unless you can return rental A to a local shop & pickup B there.
-I don't think any agency will 100% guarantee that your car will be what you reserve. If they have 1 of them & the person before you totals the car or doesn't return it on time, they no longer can physically produce the car for you... no matter what your reservation says. Or they could simply over-book the cars (hoping for no-shows) but then need them all.
-If it were me, I'd reserve the full size. You can always ask for the Mustang when you're there. Or maybe they'll hit you for a small upgrade fee if you're lucky.
