71 M-Code Value
#1
My brother needs to sell his car. 71 Mach M-code, C-6 folding rear seat, Pewter/Black exterior, Black Mach 1 interior. Has been sitting for years, will start and run, complete original power train, staggered shocks.

He is a veteran with a tough financial situation. The car needs a complete redo. What is a fair value for the car? Kansas City Mo area.

THanks!

Anywhere from $1500 to $15,000. Depends on condition, amount of rust present, how complete it is, and what options it has. Add some pics.

No current Pics available. All the normal original rust. So I call it restoration kamikaze. Dive in as deep as you want, or strip, repaint and drive. (After brake rebuild.) Options: Original 15 inch Magnums, Disc brakes, Tach, Console, folding rear, both spoilers, bright Mach 1 rocker trim, Posi, rear sway bar.

Nice! He really doesn't have a starting price yet? Set a reasonably higher price than expected and let the dickering begin.

Without lots of pics and more information such as matching numbers (?) etc there's no way to "estimate" the value over the internet. Plus we've all learned that when a person says "normal rust" it means something different to every person.

Normal rust. Has been sitting for years. Those two things tell me it's a $1,500 car unless pics show otherwise. Not trying to beat you up here but rust KILLS the valve just like it kills the car.

As everyone has said here it is impossible to set a price without pics and even then pics can hide some issues.

After having to put on a LH quarter skin (not for the reason listed below) on my '71, all I have to say is this:

If you buy a '71-73 with rear quarter wheelwell rot for over $2k, it better be a Boss 351 or a J-code.

Otherwise, you are putting more work than you should in a car that can be purchased in better condition for less than the total cost of replacement panels, paint, and bodywork (not to mention kissing whatever was left of your spine goodbye).

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

If your going to have an early model mustang, might as well be a big block with a four speed. Looks Great!
