A friend called me today, asking me to try and sell his 1968 4-spd. top Loader for him. It came from a smallblock 302 Mustang, and when I asked how much he wanted for it, he said $750. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

He did say it is in excellent shape, and is complete with shifter, linkage and bellhousing. I'm thinking this may be a little on the high side, and when I said so he seemed to think it wasn't.

So honestly I don't know as I'm not on the market for one. Is he asking to much or are they really going for that!

I've got the same one (out of '68 small block mustang) that has been rebuilt, as well as the bellhousing, but the shifter is Hurst Comp +. It has been rebuilt with about 2 years of use since the rebuild.

It would take about $750 to get the whole mess from me and that's only because I don't see any use in the forseeable future.

Don't tell SWMBO that you'd give $250 though as she would probably sell it while I'm out of town!

i paid 500 for mine and it came with 68 shifter and what someone told me was a cobra jet bellhousing because it has a hump in it for the bigger clutch disc. also has a z on the bellhousing i dont know if that makes a diff. probably mark at toploader heaven would know

Check with Dan Williams Toploader Transmissions. I think he will give $900 for a good one.

I paid that exact amount for a 67 TL with a Hurst Comp shifter and speedo cable. I was glad to get it. The big difference is whether the TL needs a rebuild or not. TL that need work or are unknown usually go for around $400 at the swap meets that I frequent.

Vintage stuff ain't getting cheaper!

Hey Art,

Actually I made the post so I could print out all the replies, and give it to my friend tomorrow when I see him, to show him what the general Mustang enthusiasts has to say about the price, especially if I happened to be correct! At this point the census is showing about 50/50, so NO it was not creative marketing since I had other intentions, and YES I have already posted it over in the Parts section For Sale. So now that I have mentioned that! I guess you could call THIS reply "Creative Marketing" since I gave a leader to where it's for sale and how you can get a hold of me! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

They are expensive, because they are practically bulletproof. They are beyond superduty. The T-5s made today still aren't as tough. Big block toploaders are even more desirable.
