Default What do you think my car is worth?

Hi guys, just wondering what you guys think my 65 mustang is worth. here is a quick parts list:
351 Windsor
Heddman Hedders
Edelbrock Carb
Torque Thrust 2 wheels
Custom Hood Scoop
Custom Grille
Custom Powder coated valve covers and air cleaner cover

The car is in Primer black, and to be honest the paint isnt in the greatest shape. There is a dent on the drivers side underside and gas tank.
It runs, Drives, and is registered. New Headliner, carpet, Stereo and 6x9 speakers in the back wih provisions for 6x6 speakers in the front. new door sill plates, new door panels, new package tray cover, new battery with lifetime warranty, new starter with lifetime warranty, new battery and starter cables, new starter solenoid, new oil pan, new ignition control module. There is no rust on this vehicle. also, the 351 only has 8000 miles on its rebuild.
What do you guys think?

Yea, some pics inside and out would help. From your description I would guess anywhere between 5 and8k. Did you check Autotradersclassics.com to get an idea?

Somewhere around $6500 because it needs paint and body. But I have seen them go for $3000. Hard to say without pictures.

What do you guys think?
Lots of variables. Was it originally a v8 or v6? What trans and rear end? What kind of condition is the interior in besides what you already stated? And like everyone else said pictures would help.

without a picture its hard to say. depending on the rust on the frame rails there could be a huge price change. just remember the little things add up. if you have headlights, all the emblems, and the little things it can really help. the nice thing that you have is a good engine. id say you should get 3500+. but it depends on the rust underneath. i know up in new england youd probably get more.

your right about that, with no pictures. this 65tanner is a wanabee. he post then never follows up with another post, let alone a picture. there are so many guys who think their classic mustang is worth a lot. this guys mustang is really worth much more than others. look at his options. custom hood scoop, custom grille, custom valve covers. saying custom will no doubt add $ to your car. also look at his stereo system, 6x9 speakers, wow! and provisions for 6x6 speakers in the front, that's a double wow! he also has lifetime warranty on his battery, starter and etc. his car also has some other new cheap parts as well. omg, i forgot that he says his car is in primer black and the paint isn't in the greatest shape. he just said it's in primer black, so which is it?? i think any 65 mustang with headers and all that souped up stuff will make this car a true money machine even with a dent in it.
this guy probably thinks his car is worth as high as about $4,500. he may be able to sell it for about

This guy probably thinks his car is worth as high as about $4,500. He may be able to sell it for about $2,500 and that's what it would be worth.

Check out this car. I'm looking for another car to restore and I contacted this guy after it didn't sell. I offered him $3,600 for his car, not knowing what his reserve was. I pretty much burst out laughing when he told me he want's $8,000 for this car and that was his reserve. Then he tells me that you restorers want to buy for low and sell for high. I simple asked him how much do you think it would cost to get this car completly restored? He couldn't tell me. So I told him it would cost to restore a true GT Convt about $24,000 and that's me doing most of the work myself. Add $8,000 to that and now you have $32k into this car that someone would only pay about maybe $12k to $16k for. Get a life sportski!

geicoman58, Come on, $25-28k for a restored 66 GT convt done by me? That's a high figure. I know I could never get that for this car if I restored it, let alone a famous restoration shop. I have never seen a restored GT convt sell for more than $18k. I can see a unmolested original GT Convt sell for more than $25, but not a restored car.


I went a looked at this car today.

1968 Mustang convertible - $1250 (mendon)

Talked to the owner who was very nice. The car is every bit complete, just taken apart. It rolls and needs a lot of metal work, (no big deal as most mustangs do). The seats are pretty nice, the hood and trunk lid are very usable with just some minor surface rust. The C-code motor is froze up, but still complete. The 3 speed shifts fine. I didn't try to put up the top frame, but it did look good and I'm sure the hinges will need some lubricating and etc. It is a numbers matching car with all the tags still on the car.

I would have bought it on the spot if it was a GT or even a A code 4 speed car. I'm still leaning to buy it. Time will tell as I'm still keeping my eye out for another Mustang. Still not bad for the asking price of $1,250.

I think my next restoration project will have another guessing contest. This time I will give away the car to the person who comes closes to the restoration cost.

well, according to the recent mustang monthly value article a 66 a code conv in #1 condition is 28 k, and it says add 20% for gt and 10 % for pony.....so......ive seen your work, i'm confident you would put together something very close to # 1, now, guide books are usually on the high side, but it takes just as much effort to restore a rare car and in the end it commands much more money. i dont really follow mustang prices unless im walking around carlise or or flipping thru the youautabuy magazine at sams club waiing on the ms, but i thought nice convertables were usually strong 20 plus ??? i cant even watch barret jackson cause i think most of those car sales are just nuts.
