1964 1/2 Mustang what is it worth?

I am thinking about purchasing a 1964 1/2 mustang. I was wondering if someone can tell me what it might be worth. It is in great condition, one minor dent on the hood. The paint is not the original color. It is now a red rather that the grey that was original. The 289 has been taken out and replaced with a 302. It has an automatic transmission. Interior is in great condition. The VIN# is 5f07f163637, body 65a, color k, trim 86, date 10f, dso 53, axel 1, and trans 6. I would appreciate it if someone could enlighten me a little more on this vehicle and tell me if it is worth getting and value of it. Thank you.

I am not an expert on this subject. I get my information by monitoring what people list their mustangs for on eBay, Autotrader and Craigs list. What I can tell you is that I see classic mustangs listed from $5,000 as restoration projects up to $15,000 as fully restored w. original trim, average price around $10K for a decent ride. Restomods, with Rack-pinion steering, coil over suspension and modernized options can go as high as $25K.
with the 64 1/2 you will be looking at a couple of must-do upgrades, one is changing the single bowl master cylinder and the other possibly changing the 4-lug wheels.

Again, I am not an expert on this subject. What I can tell you is that buying my 67 was one of the best thing I did for myself. Not for its investment value, but for getting into a hobby that I truly enjoy and I get so much satisfaction from doing. Every true car enthusiast will tell you, do not expect to make a profit, nice if you can, but most importantly enjoy!!!!
Good luck, hope this is helpful

AHarvey,

Here's some info about this car. It didn't come with a 289, it was a 260, (F-code per vin#) This car was about one of that last 64 1/2 cars made I think, October 10th 1964 build date). Also about October 15th the cars became a 65. This car may have both 64 1/2 and 65 parts. Does it have a alternator or generator? There are others here that would no a lot more about this car.

In good running condition and rust free, $4k - $7k. Every area in the country is different and so are the buyers/sellers.

Hello. 10F is June 10th of 64. The changeover to the regular 65 model year was around August 1st of 64, when the VINs 5F0 something something250000 and 5R0something something125000 were issued. AHarvey311990's car did come with a 260, black standard interior, was Siver Smoke Grey, and the D.S.O. is for Kansas City.

What was I thinking?? I know that F is for June, not October. K is for October. I must have mistaken the color code K for the date code I guess. I was being distracted by my wife when I was typing my post. She was showing me her new bikini for our up-comming sailing trip to the BVI.
