I hope so
I like it except for the bent front bumper and really really really bad hood black out layout
At least the black out is way to short so it could be repainted correctly without doing the whole hood.

A little more hood adjustment and flexing would have been nice as well.

I hope it does well as I'd like to see these cars increase in value. Chuck

I watched a few go through yesterday on computer. If it sells like some did on there it will not break $20,000. Several had already sold I saw on their site but I could not figure out how to show selling price.
The care here is not very detailed for sure so I suspect lots of rattle can restore. I will say less than $15,000.
Wish they were more but just is not going to happen.
Guy on another site put his 73 Q code 4 speed vert up and wants $40,000 and was not done correct at all. He even called it a Cobra Jet, lol.

The car sold with the shiny hood and wrong shape. I brought $27,000 I could not believe that. Someone does not know their Mustangs.
Most cars are not bringing what it would cost to do the work much less find the car. Lots of no sales.

I’m starting to realize that you can spend lots of money on these cars. Project after project, good thing I’m not trying to flip my car. My car getting ready for paint right now. Sticking with white but it’s going to have metallic silver. The silver should make The edges light up.

I'm surprised it sold for as much as it did. I logged into my Mecum account and it said $29,700. Many things up front do not line up, plus the bent bumper. It almost looks like the hood is not locked down all the way. On that driver's side view, the exhaust seems to end under the middle of the trunk (?). It is not a particularly rare car either, but has a good amount of options. Looks like musclecar restomods are doing quite well at the auction, and some excellent stock musclecars went for very little money.

The resto mod cars seem to bring way more that the all originals now. There was a 57 T-bird with Coyote engine went all the way to $165,000 way more that originals bring even with 2 - 4 or supercharger.
So I guess there was a $2,700 buyers fee on top of the $27,000 for the car. The black on the hood looked like a bunch of kids did it in their day care. Wrong size, shiny and nothing like original. Would like to know the reason the buyer liked the car.

I wish you would be a little more positive on these car's apparent values... As far as I am concerned, the prices you feel these car's should bring are ridiculously low, not even in the ballpark for what real world prices are in the market. when i saw your estimate above, I laughed as I felt the car would bring more and it did. Yes, it has issues, but the average auction buying public really have little knowledge of these concerns and buy car's on impulse... Its when it gets to bigger money that the average buyer is out and the knowledgeable (LOL) buyer's are going to critique the car and decide its value. #25-$30k today for a nice shiny example of an early muscle car is pretty standard fair, I think... Thanks.
