This stinks. 4 years ago my son and I rebuilt a 67 coupe. Plain Jane C code as his HS graduation gift and college car. He treated the thing like a baby and I am the only other person to ever drive the car besides himself. A super nice ride with zero bondo. Now, three years later some lady bumps him on the interstate and he rolls the thing 3 times. Thank God he walked away. (even had a camera with him so he took pictures for posterity sake) My question is the following. The insurance will pay the fixed amount for which we had it insured. However, do any of you know the fair buy back price for a totaled 67 mustang with 4 year old/new interior, rebuilt motor, and rebuilt everything else?

Always on the lookout for a bargain.

I'd offer them $400 and settle for $600. It would be worth that just for the engine, but the salvage value will be very low.

I'm glad your son is okay, glad you didn't have a convertible. BTW, got any pics? I'd like to see how the ol stallion held up! Hope everything works out with you insurance, these things can get messy.

I bought a wreck for $250 bucks. A little rust, barely running, interior mostly complete but filthy, damaged fender (owner gave me a good one when he sold me the car, nice guy). It has a salvaged title, but who cares, I am not selling it, nor is it going back to original condition. Hopefully you don't have to pay more than $500, good luck.

That sucks. The guy I sold my first Edsel to totaled it, and I later had the option of buying it from the salvage yard (a friend) who paid $250.00 for the whole thing.
Good luck, and I guess you don't have to have air bags to survive a big one, just STEEL!
