Depends on where you live. Up here in the North Boston area a 428cj in that condition would get 7-8K, depending on how much rust (maybe-likely a litle more) Out west, the same car might get 4-5K.

I paid $4500 for my FB, and it was in pretty much the same shape as you describe. I may have paid 5-600 too much.

It's a tough call without some more detail. The 428 makes a big difference price wise.

The Mustang price guide sets the value of a 428CJ Mach 1 at $25K for a #1 car. The car you describe sounds more like a #3, which the guide lists at $15.3K. The A/C adds $2.2K, but you'll also need to add for the tilt wheel which is a fairly rare option. This all assumes that the car checks out as original according to the VIN and warranty plate. If the engine needs rebuilding, expect to spend up to about $3K for a top and bottom rebuild unless you can do it yourself.

Hope this helps!

Prices are somewhat regional but not as much as the more common models. The rust does influnce the price unless your in the rust belt. In very general terms (you didn' t list things like exterior color which can influence the value IMHO) if the car is complete and correct but is an old home restorattion I would agree that the buying point would be in the area of less than 10K.

The rust in a rust free car to start with does bother me
