If it were a modern car that front clip would cost about 5 to 6 K for R&R,   Even if the gouge you it should be under $10K

Hood - $400
Dr Fender- $250
Grille - $300
Core Support: 125
Valence- $150
Radiator = $300
Misc Other stuff $2000
Paint - $2500?

Just guessing.  Might be able to save money by pulling the Core Support straight.

So I found a place pretty close to me that restores and repairs only 65-73 Mustangs called Mustang Craftsmen. Family owned and operated by Paul A. Beard for 35 years. He was first president and co-founder of the Mustang owners of mid Michigan. Anyone ever hear of them? Sure sounds like the right place for me to take my car for repairs.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Looks like a decent shop. Do your homework first. Look them up in BBB, ask them for references, go to some regional mustang car shows and ask around about their work, ask them for a timeline and typically double it. Another shop in the midwest is Buckeye Classic Car Restoration.

Ok, so I just got an estimate to fix the Mach 1. 14,500 is the initial estimate from the insurance company. 7,300 for labor, 6,100 for parts and 1,100 for additional costs. Sounds like a lot, but it’s smacked up pretty good. And I will hopefully get my back better than it was. 
I’m sure happy that I get to keep my car! Smile
