I am looking at a 1965 fastback, it is a T code car originally, see post from Craigslist. I am not sure the price is in line with the car, but really don’t know, advice?? There are a lot of mods on it just by the pics.
My first post, and not super familiar with these forums, other than reading. Can I change it?The mods are nice, but what's absolutely critical is the condition of the underside of the car. Since it's a desert car, it could be pristine. It could also be completely rusted out. Likely, it's something in-between. Without pics, we don't know. And nobody should buy a first gen Mustang without thoroughly inspecting the undercarriage.
Although fastback prices are continuing to go up, up up, even if it is in fact a pristine, rust-free car, I'm thinking that price is a little high for a modified T-code. Anything less than pristine and the price is way high.
And I'm wondering why you posted in the Concours forum since that car is way beyond Concours.
Ty, kinda what I was thinking, but will go look. Also gonna see who in that area can inspect it, like a body shop or a vintage car person."fresh yellow paint".
That tells me he put lipstick on a pig to get rid of it. Why would you spend $7500-$10,000 on a quality paint job just to turn around and sell it?
Ty, I’ll take all of that into considerationYeah that’s not a terrible price to start as long as there’s some room for negotiation. Assuming the underside is solid.
For me, there would have to be some concessions on the color, body color engine bay and weird interior.
The bumblebee "fresh yellow paint with black stripes" does not appeal to me at all. I don't understand why the guy would paint it such a color that is going to turn a lot of potential buyers away if he intended to try to sell it soon after the paint.For me, there would have to be some concessions on the color, body color engine bay and weird interior.
That’s fair. I should have been more specific in my criticism. I guess it’s the combo of the two tone door panels and red accents on the seats/floor mats that threw me. I agree the Mach seats are a plus, but in that application, just serves to make it into a bit of a ketchup and mustard look that turns me off. Plus, I’m willing to bet there’s a white seat under that fold down.The "weird interior" looks pretty much stock to me other than the '69 Mach 1 seats which in my opinion add value to the car.
The blue shock mounts match the engine color. Maybe there was a wrecked or rusted restomod donor car.He doesn't talk at all about suspension. trans, diff, brakes condition. That could get real pricey fast if that stuff is garbage with a new paint job.
The blue shock mounts are a tip off, to me, that something just ain't right here. Little details give way to hiding something.
He's selling a fastback with a roller 302, T5 and A/C. $15K-$20K. If it's clean underneath.
