I'm a newbie in search for some professional advice. My daughter wrecked her stang last week. It is a 96 with a V6 and auto. it only has 68K original miles and other than the damage to the front end, it is in very good and clean shape. I'm not sure what route to take as to selling it. I need to get as much out of it as possible. So, should I sell it whole or part it out. No time frame to sell just want to get as much for it as possible. I have a pic of it would appreciate any feed back as to the value either way. Thanks for you help.

Welcome to AFM! I'm glad, since you didn't mention otherwise, that your daughter is ok! So you're not wanting to get it fixed and keep it? What did the insurance company value it at? Those are pretty low miles for a 96 so that's in your favor. I see it has Cobra rims (looks like it from the pic) what other mods are there? I'd be inclined to think you'd get more for it all together as opposed to the hassle of piecing it out.

Maybe someone else can chime in here and help.

That is a small picture! But from what I could tell, it looks like a decent bit of damage... The light is missing, hood's bent. So I'm pretty sure the front bumper would also be damaged, and probably the fender, too. How fast was she going? Did the wheels get jammed backwards? We need either more info on the damage or better pictures.

Kelley Blue Book suggests you would get just over $2k for it from a dealer (rated in fair condition)... but I'm sure they would go lower due to the damage. You might be able to sell it for $3-4k, if you find the right buyer looking for a donor car or fixer-upper. The only real advantage is the low mileage...

I might suggest parting it out -- but it all depends on how good of a seller you are. Sadly, stock V6 parts on not in high demand. :p

i'd say 1500-2000 for it now, but if you could fix it up for pretty cheap. maybe find a buddy that can paint ur new parts for you and put them on i bet you would have no problem getting 4000-4500! those prices might be different where u live tho. every part of the country has a different value it seems like. like snackmaster said 68k isn't alot for that year. if i was closer to u id prob buy the thing! and also it looks like its the mystic paint which i believe was only used in 96 so there aren't alot of them. good luck trying to sell it!
