My girlfriend's parents told me about a mustang their friends own, they thought I should check it out because the wife is filing for divorce and I might be able to get the car for a decent price.

Well, I went and looked at the car and it turns out to be a 1966 K code fastback with an automatic, pony interior and w/o the GT package. The couple are the original owners and have documentation for the car. It is completely numbers matching (I checked it all out) but it is in a million pieces.

The car is completely stripped rust free body in primer and the undercarriage repainted in red oxide and the engine compartment redone. All of the parts are new and boxed/labled. The husband was trying to restore it concours correct.

It's easy to determine the value of a complete cars, because you can go buy what others in similar condition are selling for. But, this is a little more tricky...

What would be a "deal" on this car?


I took a few pics and will post them tomorrow.

He knows what it's worth restored. Too bad he doesn't know she's filing for divorce beginning of next week. :eek:

Maybe you could find it in your heart to tell him she is trying to sell his car.

A deal would be under $8k. A bargain would be $10k. Expect to pay $12 to $15k, unless the sale would save the marriage (i.e. the car is tearing them apart)

I'm asking for advice on the value of the car... not the ins & outs of other people's lives. And, as far as I know, they bought the car together brand new in 1966, so it is 1/2 hers.

She is not selling it w/o him knowing, rather giving me first opportunity at the car if it is to be sold.

If that is what it turns out to be. If you did not want it I would give the 12-15 k.

I got my 57 Tbird this way for cheap. It is really sad to see people just decide one day that it isn't worth trying to work out their problems, especially when there are children involved, like in this case, the K-code fastback! :(

Now that is rare! Where on the C4 did you find the VIN stamped?

Good luck!

My friend got his 66 k code fastback and a 67 k code coupe from a dead mans family that wanted to get rid of them for 9~10 grand. Both cars have less than 100k original miles on them. He was just lucky and both cars are in perfect condition. Good luck getting it for less than 12k though, depending on what condition. My friend got the fb appraised that 28k.
