I'm sure there is someone out there that owned that rare '66 Mustang 2+2 with a 200-1V, a Dagenham 4-speed, with 1-speed wipers, radio delete, bench seat and a Rotunda tissue dispenser....
But being able to blow your nose form a Rotunda tissue dispenser is the essence of cool!:cool:

I usually chuckle when someone new to the hobby is trying to determine if their newly acquired toy is "rare" and therefore "Worth" what they paid for it.

First rule is: rare DOES NOT always bean more valuable. (For example a green car with red interior might be "rare" because the color combination is not and most likely has never been desirable yet, it exists because someone overode the standard suggested color palate when originally ordering that car);

Second, like fine art, a "rare" car without solid documentary provenance is something that cannot be confirmed as "rare". With no known Ford documentation for pre 1967 model year cars at best you have a very nice car that may or may not be original;

Third, these cars were built as mass market cars 50 + years ago that became just another used car by 1970. Few remain untouched by the usual string of previous owners, who felt the need to "customize" their car into something that Ford did not build (common example is a fake GT);

Just have your "farther" enjoy the car for what it is and not worry if it is "rare".

But the important part is the engine code, what's the 5th number of the VIN?
