Default 1964-1969 Mustang for sale? help me!

Hello all,

Hope to find my answer here at this forum?

Im a Mustang-fan and looking for a car to export to Holland.
I have family nearby Calcary who can take it for a testdrive and eventually get the payment done. But my question is: Are there Mustangs ('64-'69) in good condition for arround 4000 - 5000 dollar?

Thanks in advance.


Danny

Thanks.

Well, I,ve seen 2 ads with cars wich seem to me very cheap.
Both '66, one coupe and one convertible. Ive seen pictures and they look nearly new. Ive have a link of the convertible here.
Picasa Web Albums - ing.sapar - 1966 Ford Mus...
Im just thinking, is this right? Or fraud? Price is 4500 CAD.

Thanks AndrewMP6



Do you happen to know where I can buy one for around 5 grand?
I have family in Canada so I prefer around Calcary.

Have you spoken to any of the local dealers in Europe, by the time you add the cost of shipping and customs it may be cheaper to just purchase one over there. You mat also want to talk to them to get an idea of what it takes to make them EU legal.

I say fraud - I have a hard time believing that a '66 Convertible in excellent shape goes for $4500CDN, even if it is a I6

Welcome aboard!

Here's the best advice (and readers of this forum know I've said this before, but it bears repeating): You MUST be patient. You need to go and see the thing in person or have someone with a really good eye/mind for this stuff do so for you. You need to not lock in on any one vehicle and you need to wait for the right one to kind of call you over and mesh with you. This is part art, part science.

Case in point: I was about 17 years old the first time I had a legitimate shot at a mustang. It was an '85 convertible, 6 banger with some nice features. Turned out, I took it to a mechanic I trusted and the thing had been in a major accident. The body work had been done well, but a ton of innerworkings had been stressed or cracked or creased to the point where a bad pot hole might make it shatter like Waterford Crystal. I passed.

About a year later, a plum purple '66 coupe with a 289 was available from one of my mom's coworkers. Dad sent a car expert over there after I was excited about the various aspects of the car that kids get too excited about (8 track tape deck, awesome leather seats) and found out that a) it was really a 7 cylinder (as the 3 hole was dead as a doornail) and b) if the car was only half bondo, that was would have been a miracle. I was pissed I didn't get the car, but it saved me a ton.

Five years later, I needed a car for a job and Dad and I went looking and found an '86 coupe with a 4 in it. It had really low miles and was beautiful (the little old lady who only drove it on weekends). However, the four was stressing and I couldn't get the tranny to shift well. It stayed at the dealer.

I gave up for a while and just looked here and there and eventually, almost 20 years after I started looking, I found the one I bought. Mechanic liked it, service guy liked it, I liked it and the price was great. Plus, I finally had a good job and a good place to store and work on it. All the stars aligned and now all I do is pine for Summer.

I know you probably want a Stang, any Stang, now, now NOW, but you need to make sure you've got a handle on getting the right car for the right price at the right stage in life.

Good luck,

Doc

I think I looked at about 7 Mustangs before I picked up the one I'm working on right now.

What I learned...

Look for rust. I found a father/son restoration job that was just horrible, but from 10 feet away looked good. The panels didn't line up. The rust was actually around the windows but was painted over. It was a matter of time before it just gave up. My car was almost completely rust free except for my rear frame rails. I didn't even *look* there but now I need to get it done before my leaf springs go flying off. I looked in the normal spots (floor pans, etc).

You don't have to get a V8. I just wanted a nice Mustang, I could care less about how fast it went (I have a 2010 Mustang if I need a bit more speed). But, I was so hell bent on getting a V8 for a good price that I probably overlooked a few nice I6s. I finally found my '66 on Craigslist after watching it for a few months. It started at 7500... went to 6500.. and finally down to 5000. No one wanted an Arcadian Blue I6... everyone wanted a red V8. I get more looks and compliments out of this car as it is original and uncommon.

Rig jobs. I saw so many rig-jobs it wasn't even funny. After so many Mustangs, you get a good idea of what and what isn't supposed to be in there. I saw rigged seat belts, radios, engines, air conditioners, fan belts (!), brakes. One car scared the crap out of me because it idled at about 2000+ RPM. When I put it into reverse, it took off and I couldn't stop because the brakes didn't work right. Another car had the floor pans set so far wrong that I hit my head on the ceiling when I got in the car.

Look far away. I found my Mustang 200 miles from my house. Nevermind that it took me 4 weeks to get it running to get it home (It broke down twice). That's another one. People aren't always honest on what is or is not wrong with it. My carb float stuck and I managed to jam it into 2 gears at the same time since the linkage was bad.

Ask lots of questions on this forum and sign up with your local Mustang club. Lots of people will help you out.
