Question What is my 1970 Mustang worth?

I have been putting thought into selling my 1970 Mustang. I have owned this car for 7 years. I have got pretty attached to the car. But, recently the son of the original owner got a hold of me and asked if I would like to sell the car. Well the hard part is finding a price that would be fair to both me and him. I know the car isnt in perfect condition. But, it is fully original from the engine to the interior. It does have some rust but nothing that has began to eat through the metal. Its a 1970 Ford Mustang Grande, has a 351 cleveland. I have some price looking on ebay and other sites like that. Seen some selling for $800 and some going for $40,000 (fully restored of course). What seemed to be tho is the average of about $2500. So what do you guys think is a fair price? Im completly lost about this.

What is my 1970 Mustang worth?

Hello 70stang81052,

Determining the value of a classic car is not easy. So many factors to consider.
Of course the vehicle is worth what someone is willing to pay.

There are a few on-line guides that should help.

Here is one such guide to get you started.

New Car Prices, Used Car Values, New Car Reviews & Car Buying Guides - NADAguides.com Official Site

You may be surprised at what the price is. Of course it depends on a honest
evaluation of the condition.

Hope this helps

Ya that did help out a lot. It gave me a base price to look at and from there just make deductions off my car as to waht a reasonable price would be to start with. Thank you for your help.

NADA said your car was 7k 11k and 15k for a very NICE car. I haven't seen a coupe sell for any more than 7K . I've seen "prices" more than that....just not sales.

If you want to be fair....look at 100 (just kidding) coupes...average the qualty and price. See if it meets your needs and wants and then if the buyer likes that price is my suggestion. If you want a big price use NADA and hope he doesn't know any better.

Found a fully restored 1970 mustang $11,500 in the Puyallup area of WA State. More below. It's not my car, but I wish it was.

My 17 year old son loves mustangs. In particular, 1965 with nothing extra. However today, we found a 1970 mustang with perfect everything on both the interior and exterior... black leather inside and chrome and no-scratch paint on the outside. The only thing I couldn't see was the engine. I can't imagine the amount of restoration that had to have gone into this car without a great engine. This car would be considered excellent in the 3% of all used cars. He wants $11,500, which I think is a really low price. Hope this helps. (I love it but since I had a 1968 Camero, 307 engine in 1974, it's been my hope to get away from my Honda Pilot and Toyota Camry and back to a classic Camero )
