Very interesting to me that this car has the idiot lights and NO tach.

Seems Strange to me too.

The car was parked in 1988 and was just recently started and it runs and drives.

But the picture of the 1ofNine Arizona plate that looks teal modern.

Wrong price for a car in that condition.

I agree in the the price is too high for a car in that condition. About the license tags: on the car there is a California blue plate that has a stamp expired in 1988, so that would corroborate the story. The other plate looks new. Maybe someone ordered it for the car but decided later that he doesn't wanna fix it?

It's a little high priced in my humble opinion for a car in that condition. As cool as a 429 convertible is they are just not sought after. I would love to own it but not at that condition/price.

For the serious investors - these cars are the most desirable 71-3 Mustangs. If you have more than 5 cars in your collector stable, you are eager to get one of these. While I also feel the price is high for what it is - the car might sell at that price. The $15k of extra parts would need to be inventoried and correctly valued.
The only other 71-3Mustang convertibles that are in the same league are the 72 HO convertibles. But even they do not yet command the money these 429 cars fetch.

To build the car right one would have about $90k + invested. To try and do it cheap would be a huge mistake.
And as always - attention to details means everything.

If it were manual, would that make it more valuable still?

Yes - almost always for our cars. Common perception is that it equates to performance.

Only one or two lower-performance 71-73 Mustangs were equipped with 4 speeds. But all of the performance engine options were available with 4-speeds.

Don't be fooled - there are many very strong performing 71-3 Mustangs with automatics!
