Looking at a 65
#1
Hey guys,

Been looking at this 65 on craigslist near me for a while now. http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/cto/4646451635.html

Everything seems like it is there minus a few items (bumpers, tank, carpet). Looks like they did some decent work on it. But I talked to the guy a while ago and he seems nice enough and already he dropped the price a good bit more than what's on the ad. He's had the car a while and ran out of time and money. Its no high dollar car but it would give me something to do over the winter Big Grin Jus twanted to see what you guys thought. I would keep it pretty stock. Get an interior kit and weather strip kit for at after I finished the body work and paint. Get the motor up and running. Go through the brakes, steering, wiring and suspension. Should be a nice driver come spring. I was looking to pay around $3500 for it and put around $3500 into it. I can do all the work myself so I don't think that's to far out of line as long as I don't run into nothing to crazy in the mechanical end. Alright lets hear what everyone thinks!! Good, bad, ugly...all input welcome.

Thanks

Kevin

Doesn't look bad in the pic. My first car was a Honey Gold 65 coupe. The deal breaker for me is the 6 banger. If I bought a 65 it would have to be a 289 car. Have you looked at car in person?

The 6 banger sucks but what the hell for the right price it will do. Drive it for a while then sell it and do another. My 71 doesn't need much so I get bored during the winter. I haven't seen it in person but the guy sent some other pics to me a few months ago the 1st time I saw it for sale. looks really solid and did a decent job on the metal work. Heres few more pics from the ad. I cant find the ones he sent me??

I paid about the same for my ’66. I was told I paid too much by most other early Mustang guys but It was nicer than most others I looked at. For a car in this price range it did not make sense to me to be looking all over the country hoping to save $1000. I sold the six with trans for $400 but it had receipts for a recent rebuild. I was torn between going for a Trans Am style build or a gasser. A friend had a mile high I beam ’66 in HS. Mine’s gong for that flavor but lower than his.

The reproduction parts are everywhere for these cars but you know how reproduction stuff often is.
