Lot of cash but only trouble is if the car was done to concourse condition they lost about $35,000 in the deal. I know everyone thinks that is a crazy number but go get a quote from one of the restoration shops or talk to a member that has done one recently. Very easy to pass six figures in a build. $500 - $1,000 per day + parts and material does not take long. Then you have to find a good bone to start with.
I do not remember how that one looked will have to go back and review the pics. Very few had pics of chassis only shiny stuff.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I haven’t confirmed... but the black scj went for $145-150K. Kind of shoots holes in the nay sayer’s saying these car’s will not bring the $$$ at auction. The car was not perfect, but had a lot going for it, obviously at least two other’s felt the same way...

Vert is correct!
Long story short........ I worked in Management for Walmart and was trained in " What is something worth concepts" ???  we actually had college class's on this for 2 years to earn our diploma and passage into upper management.
Im here to tell you that the 71-73 Mustangs will bring bigger $ down the road. I'm sure this will bring lengthy discussions.
If people would just stop saying there NOT worth anything, they will be. Stop your stinkin thinkin!

So f'ing true! All the Nancy Negatives need to shut their friggin pie holes and the values will rise. Bunch of doom & gloom...sometimes it's embarrassing to associate with people who see our cars this way. They hurt themselves and pull us all down.

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! thumb

I was at Mecum Indy a couple year's back and a '71 J Code (pretty sure it was this, slight chance a B1, would have to check...) brought in the area of $190K... Highest that i am aware of to date.

Ken,
Here is the one sold at Mecum in Florida, It was an 823 ultra low mile with plastic still on the interior and only had a single chrome, non-racing style mirror on the driver door.
It sold for $192K......
Thanks Jay
