1972 Q Code Convertible Question
#1
Just found your site and glad I did. I have found a 1972 Mustang convertible Q code for sale and need everyone's opinion on what they think it's worth. I have looked up values online but also wanted to get your opions as well.

Here is what the Mustang has:

- Original Q code engine
- Original C6 automatic
- Original 3.25 Locking rear
- Nasa hood with ram air
- Ivy Gold exterior
- Medium Green Knitted Vinyl interior
- A/C, P/S, disc brakes
- 3 Spoke rim blow steering wheel
- Full console
- AM/FM
- Instrumentation Group
- Magnum 500's

Also, the Mustang is in excellent original condition. No rust, original paint, original top and original interior. The interior looks brand new execpt for one small crack on the drivers side door panel. The car has never been restored and has only 36,000 miles on it. I still need to check with the seller to see if they have some paperwork verifying the mileage.

So, Can everyone give me their best guesstimate on what this would be worth?

Thanks for your help.

First, welcome to the site.

This sounds like the same car I saw at a show in Virginia about 4 years ago. Same color's, but not sure about the engine, it was original and looked to be in great shape. I believe the owner was from West Virginia. It was for sale at the time around $14K. From what I know it was purchased and resold in Pennsylvania in the low $20's. The new owner lived in Virginia and belonged to a local Mustang Club. He sold it about a year or so ago and took a loss. I think he was asking $18k.

I have some pictures of it from the show I can post if your interested; just let me know.

NADA = excellent for insurance values, useless for anything real world.

Just a WAG, you'd be looking at around $15K ~ $20K. The market is seriously soft right now and IF you have the cash, you can get some good deals.

Thanks for your post. I looked at NADA previously as well as Collecter Car and Truck Market and their values seened a little high to me when I compared it to what was for sale out there. I wish I could see what these Mustangs have actually sold for as opposed to what people are asking for them.

The low miles and original condition help... but not as much as it would it was a Boss. You will get the most from someone who is looking to do an original restoration. This one sounds like it would just need a little TLC. Do you know if it has the original spark plugs, wires and some of those parts? That would really help. You will have to 'wait' for the right buyer but someone looking for a 'time machine' may eventually stumble along.

Per your request, here are pictures of the car I was talking about. After looking at the pics, probably not the same car as the one you are looking at as this one is a 351, 2V and the last owner told me it had about 74,000 original miles:

These pictures below were taken at a car show I think in about 2006. The second set of pictures show the same car in June 2008, but the NASA Hood, the Magnum 500 wheels, and the front spoiler have been added. After checking the details, he was trying to sell for $18K in June 2008, but told me in an email he would take $15K.

Good luck with your purchase!

I am planning on taking a look at it this weekend. I will check to see if any of those items are original. Thanks for your help.

The pictures you posted are very similar to the Mustang I'm looking at, but it's not an automatic and not a 4V like you said. Thanks.
