Re: What is a 66 Mustang worth
I'm going to move my chair to the low side of the fence and sit in the cheap seats.
Geography might have a hand in this, but a plain Jane '65 '66 Coupe that is not in tip top pristine condition just isn't going to bring those high numbers, if it sells at all. There may be someone out there that would pay that big ticket price, but I doubt anyone on this board would pay over $10k for for a clean Coupe, let alone one that is at best in Good overall condition.
I have a customer that just paid $4500 for a Plane Jane '71 Fastback and he is pleased as punch about it. He brought the car by the office for us to ogle the other day. I was polite, but I would not have paid $4500 for this car.
Paint was cracked and chipped (white paint, the hider of all body sins), seats were ripped, dash was cracked. But the engine (302 2v) had a fresh coat of Ford blue on it, including vacuum tee's and wires. And, it smoked.
Some people may pay the price and believe they got a deal. Turnip trucks are full of 'em. Just that the turnip truck doesn't come to town near often enough.
Peace, Love, and Groovy Vibes
