7173 mustang values
#1
i just want to say that i been on so many sites that sell classic cars and every class of cars seem to hold a good value pretty good to you get to 7173 mustangs,so many people hold no value to these cars except some that stand out and show great but for others ones i see them selling for chump change, no way can you buy one and fix it up and only sell it it for 5,000 or 10,000 dollars,before some start screaming i didn't buy my car to sell it ..... ok that,s fine so many people don't buy 7173 mustangs and plan on ever selling it,but in the classic car market you would whan't it to go up in value no matter what i see camaro's chevell's impalla's 65 to 70 mustang and every other make hold there value,im just saying people need to demand decent value for our 7173 mustang instead of being so hard up and giving it away,even on this site i here i dont want prices to go up because i can,t afford the hobby,i say collect pintos,just my 2 cents.just tired of 7173 mustang geting a bad rap.it deserves the same respect as other classics cars out there......

I am not sure I comprehend what you are trying to say.

It does appear that most of the folks on this site and in the 71/73 mustang hobby are in it for the love of the car, not to make money.

I am not sure our cars 'get a bad rap'. Certainly they are gaining more interest and respect. I would argue that my 1973 Mustang gets more respect than a 1973 Chevelle. It is certainly better looking.

Hi Ron,

I think that in time, we will see the value of our Mustangs rise. Public perceptions and public awareness always play a big part with values, so it's hard to predict where and when values will change. Economic climates play their part too. I notice that these days, people around the world are seeking to collect lesser known and less popular classic American cars in preference to the mainstream popular models, because they want to own a car that's more different and unique and stands out more than well known more popular models.That will help change the landscape of values in time as well i think, in a positive way.

I was doing a little reserch the other day on Hagerty's website on values, and found their information interesting. How accurate their info is i personally don't know.

http://www.hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch

Here in Australia, the values tend to be more expensive, because of all the extra costs involved in bringing the cars out here. For example, let's say you are buying a '72 Mustang for $24,000 American right now. To bring that car to Australia and put it on the road and start driving it around, would cost you an extra $10,000 Australian in fees, charges, taxes etc.
I bought my '73 Vert back in 2011 here in Aus, and paid $30,000 Aus for it. Since i have owned it, i've sunk easily $15,000 extra into doing it up. If i tried to sell my car today, i know i could only ask around $35,000 Aus for it.
I did not buy my car only to look at it as a rising investment. I bought it to enjoy myself, and bring happiness, pleasure and joy to my life.(which it does). What money can you put on that! That's worth a million dollers and more.

Be patient, as values will rise as time goes on.

if you read the post it says some people that collect 7173 mustang don't plan on ever selling there cars, as for it getting no respect your kidding me right, all I here are people crying about they don't want the prices on these cars going up because it will cost to much for them to buy parts for there cars, to my point if you search for classic cars are are on the low end and other classic cars are holding there value and commanding more money.........some people will just never get it....

Austin I hear what your saying and I agree,all im trying to say is we should hold our cars up a little higher like Camaro guys and mopar guys .and value them more even if you never sell it.

I think it's just the opposite no one is giving these cars away especially since all the car flipping shows everybody thinks they have gold. Have you seen what their asking for rotted out junk ? that's what 5k gets you. I was just having this conversation the other day with a friend..The shows on t.v. have basically put the kabash on the deals that you used to be able to find get..they are far & few in between. Not only that many good restorable cars have been ruined by the wannabe flippers everybody & his daddy is a restoration expert

Ron,

When you say 'we', are you refering to the forum members here, and/or the general public?

It's my perception that the '71/73 forum folk love and value thier Mustangs highly. However, we know that the general public's perception of our cars is mixed and varied in a general way. Public awareness and public perceptions and attitudes dictate the popularity and market value of all motor cars i think. In that sense, it's the public's perspective of our models that needs to change for the better, and i feel sure it slowly is. Of course, rareity of any collectible item plays a key role in market values as well.

There is always a bean counter around who thinks that money makes one an Alpha. You want to put a value on my car? It was my first car. It took me on my first date. It took me to prom. We pounded down dark highways on endless summer nights. It was my first "hot rod". It bore my first modified engine(s), trans, rear end(s). I took me to college. I drag raced it. I street raced it. I crashed it. I fixed it. I learned to paint on it. I had some of my best days in it. I had some of my worst days in it. I've had it for 31 years. It bears no monetary value to me. I simply want to restore it to to fun status so it can carry me into my last tomorrows. With that, what's my car worth?

I really can't afford this venture but I'm going too. It may never get done, but I will have tried. This poor bastage will not bow out of this car because he can't afford it or can't find the value of it.

After owning my 71 convertible (Mach 1 tribute) for 7 months now I am going to predict that the 71 to 73 Mustangs will slowly start catching up in value to what the 69/70 cars bring. Here is why I think so. Within Mustang circles there is still a good bit of negativity towards our beloved 71-73s. I think it really persists mostly because it has been there so long. However, outside of Mustang circles my car garners tons of positive feedback. This is true across many different demographics. Men and women of all ages give me "thumbs up" or tell me "Nice car!" etc as I drive around town. But the most attention comes from little kids who can't even know it is a Mustang, they just know it is AWESOME! So it seems to me that people who have never been exposed to the anti-71/73 sentiment just look at the car and know it is something special and they are drawn to it.
