Did I lose out on a big opportunity?

Today I saw online in the local classifieds a 5 year old restoration of a red 1966 a code 289 fastback no rust complete shiny paint 4speed black interior with rare split front bench it was listed at $13000..... I thought this seems like a great deal it really looked pretty decent but I wasn't in the buying state I just look daily.....well I just checked again and it's ad is gone ....which I assume it was sold.......:?:

Either that or the scam-artist got busted by the Canadian equivalent of the FBI and they pulled the listing. You may also have avoided a huge headache and disappointment. Always look on the brighter side.

Pretty decent price. I paid $12k for mine a couple years ago.

A SPLIT front bench seat. I think that would be quite rare.

If it's not split, how does one get into the back seat?

If something sounds to good to be true, it most likely is.

I'd say you made yourself $13,000 richer

'66 Ragtop, vibrant red, 289-4V, 4-speed toploader
'68 Fastback, space blue metalic, 351C-4-V, 4-speed toploader
'69 Mach I, (Pending Resto Project)
'66 Fastback (because I wanted one)

The seatbacks fold forward like on any 2-door Ford such as my former '66 Galaxie 500. The one-piece cushion and folding back rests were in literally millions of Fords of the era. That doesn't mean that the cushion is split and each side adjusts fore-aft individually which is what I know as a split bench. The Mustang bench was a little different in that it had a 3rd section in the center unlike the Galaxies for which each side's backrest was just 1/2 of the total seat width.
