I found this Mustang on Yahoo and was wonderinf if anyone thought this is a good price. I am trying to get in contact with the owner to find out more specifically about the work that has been done. It looks like it needs most of the interior redone, but the good thing is that I have a 66 fastback with a lot of extra interior parts. I was looking at building a daily driver and since this one looks fairly nice and has power sterring that this may be a good candidate. Thanks

NOTE: The car below is the one I currently own, the above link will show the one I am looking at.

Love the 'cooler' in between the seats! Owner states it is a 'HOMEMADE BOX CONSOLE', but it looks suspicious. hehehe

There's a real lack of discription when it comes to rust. It looks good in the pics, but it might look a lot different in person. I would email him and ask specific questions about rust. Also request more photos.

Let me ask you this;
Are you wanting to keep your fastback as a project, and have a second car as a daily driver, or are your eventually going to drive your fastback as a daily driver?
If it were me, I would take the $$ that you would spend buying the coupe that needs bodywork and God knows what else, and sink it into getting your Fastback drivable. $3500 would go a LONGGGGGG way into making it a dependable driver. I would NEVER buy a car without being able to testdrive it and inspect if firsthand. I can take a Picture of anything and make it look ok in the picture.

I think that sounds like too much $$ for a car that needs so much stuff. Keep your $$ and spend it on your fastback.

I don't know the whole situation, but I'd take that money and put it into the fastback you already have. One project car is usually more than enough, splitting your time and money between 2 project means neither gets done. The coupe doesn' t look that great anyways.

It looks a bit pricey for the condition to me too. I'm not a big fan of buying cars through online auctions but I did look at http://www.cars.com today and was pleasantly surprised by the number of vintage mustangs on the market in my area. During the winter there were practically none. Now there are a few from each year! I guess the market picks up in the spring.

They seem to have access to the classified sections of the local newspapers and they consolidate all of them to make things real easy.

The cars are sorted by price but if you click on the year heading it will sort them by year for you. Click again to resort in the reverse order.

I can attest to having too many project cars. Two '65 FBs that are rapidly becoming decade projects. Then there's the Friggin' Futura, a dead T-bird, and my Dad's '65 coupe. Best to get the FB into drivable status at least before buying another 'Stang.

My humble ops,
