Hello I'm looking at buying a 1985 Mustang GT. The body condition is great and it has about 138k miles on it. 5 speed 302 pretty much stock with cobra r rims. There is no rust on it and it came from down south. Doesn't have t-tops. Not completely perfect couple dings here and there inside and out nothing too major. What would be the value of this car? Thanks

Is this in Ohio?? Just saw one like that....

I wouldn't go over $3500 though...it is a 30yr old car.

It's not in Ohio but actually the price to take it away is 3500 I mean it needs a little tlc and a tune up but it's hard to find clean ones here in michigan. So your suggesting going for it then?

Check it out....if there's no rust or other damage then offer him $2800 and go from there. I would say in very good shape no more than $3500. Its hard to say as I can't see it....but in the end its worth what you are willing to pay.

The owner is keen on 3500 it comes with some other parts as well... and I'm prolly going to go ahead and go for it because idk about you guys but endless searches on Craigslist are getting to me. I've also heard that these cars are gaining popularity?

foxbody mustang is a top investment car under $5,000. with these cars..you can usually find something wrong with them to get the price lower....check for oil leaks..look under the seats and make sure there is no mud or leaves..to make sure it hasnt been under water...:nono:
