Someone tell me why this M-code brought just under $9K on eBay
#1
Usually the eBay sale prices for these things make sense, but I am having a very hard time trying to wrap my head around this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-Ford-Mustan...7675.l2557

I'm honestly stumped. What is it about this otherwise-identical-to-any-other-M-code car that makes it worth $8,950 - complete with rotted outer wheelhouses?

It's well optioned, has rare options, and the interior is in decent shape.

$8.9K for the additional bragging rights of a tilt wheel, rear window defrost, and the convenience lighting group?

Besides the rust, the driver's door has been fiddled with incorrectly, the aprons could be bowed due to the missing braces, and the cowl and floor pans are both huge question marks - to say the least.

It's an over-the-top premium for a car that would otherwise be valued in the $3-5k range on a good day, wouldn't you say? Sure, it looks decent at first glance, but it isn't even a 20 footer.

Right up to that decisive point when the seat falls through the floorpan. whistling

Is this additional evidence of mustang $$ temporarily rising due to the 50th Anniversary hype?
