I have got the bug to purchase a restored mustang and would appreciate your opinion. I have a close friend who restored a 64 1/2 mustang from the frame up. He is knowledgible in this field since his profession is working on an IRL racing team. I saw the car when it was completely stripped and off the frame. When it was new the car was converted for drag racing and only had approx 15 miles on the engine. The engine is not the original so SNs are not matching. The frame is excellent, body has been painted inside & out, complete new interion installed. He wants $6000 plus cost of completion which only includes engine, exhaust and transmission installation. Engine (351) and transmission are included in the $6000. I've seen the car and it is in excellent condition. Being new to the hobby I'm not sure about the cost. My guess would be about $10,000 - $12,000 when complete. Would appreciate your opinion.
