What you described is worth about $5500 bucks.

What Lars likes is a $18-35,000 dollar fastback, much different car, and if I had MY choice I'd drive a coupe over a FB any day. Too many blind spots in a fast back for me to be comfortable around moron drivers....

OK now you want to know what a GOOD price is for a NICE 66 Mustang, you can by them all day long under $8,000 bucks that have been very nicely refurbished, or you can go to e-bay and bid on one that nobody ever meets the reserve price on because they spent $30K restoring a car that's only worth $18,000...

Catch my drift?

If you need help buying one, PM me and I can secure you a nice one before the end of the month that's far under the $17K mark and still has the original engine in it! Which is very very important to me. Crate motors are for wimps and cry babies :)

Yeah, the 302 crate engine will lower the value if you are into dedicated restorations, even if not.

It would depend on how clean it is, was it restored recently and how good of a job they did. I would say it's hard to put a price on a car without seeing it also.

I personaly wouldn't worry about it being a crate engine, unless the car was something special. GT, Hipo?

FE, the car your restoring now, Is it only going to be worth $8 to $10K? If I read it right of it will cost him $30 to $40K to restore.

It's worth what your willing to pay, to save you time and $$ of doing it yourself.

I've got $15 to $20K wrapped up in my Fairlane. And close to $15K in my Falcon and it's not painted yet. Part's are not cheap, nor labor unless your doing it yourself.

I just bought a 66 coupe about 2 months ago for 15K. It had been restored. Cosmetically good; engine-302 w/ a nice cam, intake, headers. It is red and looks great! Ive had 68 fstbk, and a 66 vert-liked them both but like this 66 coupe best. I agree w/ the other post re: being able to see out the rear MUCH better. I bought it from a distant relative and it turns out the engine will need rebuilt and the tranny. Well, so what!! If I like the car it's worth it!!!! Get the car you like- I'd recommend a PPI inspection (road ready is an excellent one-$350 but well worth it.) Still, you won't know what you "got" until you drive it 500 miles. You will own a classic- many people only dream of that. "Those who risk nothing, do nothing, achieve nothing, become nothing. Make sure you see the car, drive it, and offer a realistic price. Cash talks!!!!!!!!!!!! Tom in Va.
