Have the 1971-73 Mustangs been more affected by the economy?
#1
I wonder since they are the least desirable Mustangs in the opinion of many collectors and the collector car market in general has taken a hit with the lower selling prices,I will tend to believe that these 1971-73 mustangs have been feeling it even worse. What do you guys think and specially members who have been trying to sell their cars. Its a buyers market now!

if we are talking about part availability, the part availability is alot higher than when i was 16-20 years old (i'm 30 now).

now if you are talking about selling/buying market, then i have no idea because i tend to buy another 71-73 nor sell my 73. althought i'd love to have a 71 convertible with a 351W with at56 built for GAS MILEAGE to cruise with the kids in. with the top down cruising down the highway in 6th gear and having the rpms at 1500rpms. and of course have a 4 point roll bar cuz it is a convertible.

I think all classics are being hit...I havent noticed ours taking a huge hit.....Now some classic dodges have...But even those cars are still worth a ton....And its hard to find a 71-73 stang on ebay right now for cheap with out bids all over them...And btw...Ours are not the least desired mustangs anymore....That goes too mustang 2's and fox body stangs now....You can get a nice fox body mustang for so cheap right now...lol...Ours "i believe" Are just getting ready to shrug off there bad names and become the classics they are.....But alot of memebers on here will tell you..They hope the prices stay low..So we can enjoy them still....Once they get so spendy we won't be able to enjoy them as much.

I was referring to the Classic years of the Mustang which is 1964-73 when I said that they were considered the least desirable by many collectors.

I have been following the collector car muscle car market for quite a long time now..If you want a realistic answer..It's 110% a buyers market right now..If you have cash...There's tons of restored finished 71-73's in the market for a great price..& more hitting the market everyday.. ...Of course there are stupid people asking crazy money but that's why those cars just sit & aren't selling..

Mmmmm mustang 2's and fox bodies are classics....they are over 20 years oldWink

I know what your saying thou....but i think mach 1's are not getting the bad end yet....I would say coupes are being hit hard in the crunch...I can get a clean coupe for nothing now...But still cost a penny for any fastbacks.

The FOX body's hit bottom when the 05s came out. I think their starting to come back. The kid down the street saw my wife's 2013 and thought I would be selling my 89 GT. He offered me 8500 for it. I told him to come back with 10k and I would think about it.

I wouldn't settle for a dime less, either. Nice FOX-body!

mmm thats not a stock GTWink very nice machine.....But i notice realy nice low milage fox body GT's on craigs list for about 3,000 too 5,000..{70,000ish miles}.That you can drive off in and enjoy...Driving worn out ones for 800 bucks...Non runing beat up..500 bucks.....I cant find a 71-73 driving car for 800 bucks...Sooo i think our years still got a price edge on them...But they will all bounce back....Just cause they will be harder and harder to find not beat down.

I was just taking a look for mustang ii's and cobra 2's on ebay..and i cant find anty cobra's for sale...all gone...I use to be able to find a few...oohh my..... but i did notice this one came .Wasnt this suposta sell on mechums or berret jacksons? It must of not sold..Or the person who got tring to make a buck on it...lol http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ford-Must...7302906509
