Maybe they are like me, no money and no room to put it. Its just a bad time right now to try and sell anything. Ive been thinking about selling my Grand National but you would almost have to give it away so it just sits in the garage.

What i would do for a grand national haha. Unfortunatly 17 year olds dont make much money mowing lawns:sosad: tell you what doug, a grand and ill take her off of ya...:winks
But yea, this isn't the time for selling cars. Keep it for a few more years. You should post the link for us to tell you what we think of our first impressions. Because first impressions are what make people notice the adds. Constructive criticism of advertising haha.

Despite any number of appraisals a collectable is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Right now the collector car market is suffering from the same down turn (lack of disposable income) as the art industry and every other optional discretionary purchase. Right now is a bad time to sell houses, cars, art, and tools.

I took a look at your ad in the classifieds section. Do you have the ad up on any other sites? I'd certainly make sure I keep a current ad on Craigslist. I noticed you're not far from North Platte. I think you'd be in line putting it in the Lincoln and Omaha Craigslist...maybe Denver as well?

Also, a few more and bigger pictures certainly wouldn't hurt. A few shots of the engine, maybe?

The thing you need to remember, though is that it is a very run-of-the-mill coupe. The demand and resale on these cars just isn't as good as the more-desirable convertible and fastback.

I saw some really nice classics being sold for crazy low prices at the Barrett-Jackson Auction last weekend. Perhaps it's not the time to sell in general?

Also it's not a matter of how much it cost to buy the car it's the thought of how much money it's going to cost to maintain the car.

Selling isn't fun at all!

I agree with derfiticulum:bigthumbsup. Also, take more flattering photos, vacuum the carpet, take numerous photos showing off your stangs best attributes. Don't show the car sitting on a trailer! I thought it was a rolling chassis at first. When I'm surfing through Craigslist,ie, I can click for a nanosecond of whether I want to look at a particular car or pass it by~ it's that first impression when trying to catch someone's attention. Look at your competition and how they are advertising, and don't list how desperate you may be to sell, and I can gurantee you, first thing you'll hear or in written format, "WHAT'S THE LOWEST YOU'LL TAKE?" I've been shopping just for fun, and there are many classic mustangs for sale(and other classics). So, reaccess your strategy, repost flattering photos and list everything your stang has to offer.
