Default What's my 1974 Mustang II worth?

I've been asked to sell a 1974 Mustang II, Mach 1, 3-door Fastback, for the 94 year old father-in-law of my sister. I have no idea how much to sell it for. He bought it new (? the title is dated 1975) after he turned 60 and the kids were out of the house. The state will no longer permit him to drive. The car runs good and has been maintained meticulously. The body is pristine except for rust at the lower rear area of the front fenders, under the "Mach 1" symbol. It still has the original paint, though it appears he has used some rubbing compound on the top, hood, and right side. Two of the mags are missing the small caps in their center and the small chrome trim located at the lower front of the right rear fender needs new clips. I think the interior is original--there is a 4" tear in the driver's seat, on a seam. It is a V6, automatic w/air, PS and PB.
Can anyone give me an idea of how much to sell it for?
Thanks for your help,
James

Do you have any pics?

The car from what you've described seems like it's in overall good shape, but having pictures makes it easier to judge it's condition.

Just from what you've given overall in info I'd guesstimate it to be worth about $2000-3000.

1974 Mustang IIs are the hardest to sell because a V8 engine doesn't just bolt-in like it does with the 1975-1978 cars, but originality and overall good condition, combined with the fact that it's a Mach I would help.

I added three pictures to my profile--I'm not sure how to edit the post to add photos.
Thanks!

Well, I'd stand behind my original guesstimate with what I've seen so far, but in those pictures I didn't see the black lower section and Mach 1 lettering that would've been there if it was a Mach 1. It may have just been the lighting though.

Thanks a lot!
The "Mach 1" is there--that is also the place where there is some rust-out on both sides.
