Around the Omaha area, I would say $3000. Thats about the average price that I have seen from the Omaha want adds.

How is the paint? Is it fairly complete? These things alone will have a pretty big effect on price. Does it have headers or other goodies that make it more appealing? Nice rims? It's pretty tough to give a price without a fairly thorough discription or pictures.

Check the inner fenders around the top of the shock towers. Also check the cowl area. Look at the floor pans and Torque boxes. If it looks reasonable it sounds like $3k here in Ohio.

I have no experience with the 71 to 73 models, I have however read some posts in here about the lack of repo parts for the last of the Vintage Mustangs. http://www.plauder-smilies.de/eek.gif So you might want to make a quick check on the availability of interior parts for the vert. http://www.plauder-smilies.de/tales/lsvader.gif fd

Interior upholstery is available from TMI and other companies. Look under the car between the outer rocker rails and the floor for rust. Also, since it is a convertible look under the carpet for rust, these cars leak and water will stand on the floor pans. Check the top cylinders and make sure they are not leaking. Check the front of the doors at the bottom near the weather strip. These doors hold water in that area and rust is very common, especially in the midwest. These guys rust in just about the same places as the earlier models so check the normal areas. Definately look under the battery.
As far as aftermarket parts are concerned the only thing that isn't being reproduced is sheet metal.
