well if I did this right I am wondering what to offer for this car. All I have is the pictures I haven't seen it in person yet, so I am looking for a ballpark figure. Car has been sitting for about 15 years like you see it. It is a H code car I know that much engine is original.

That would mean it's a 73 Mach 1, BUT the tail lights have black accent around them ( those were used on 71 and 72 Mustang's, But could have been changed out) stripes are for 71 and 72 also but easily changed as well. The grille is not correct either. The H would mean 351 C 2v. I would ask some questions.depending on if it runs and how much is there parts wise will also help in getting a rough value for it. and any rust issues as well

If your planning on restoring, RUN AWAY

Not so fast... check the front frame rails, shock towers, engine compartment sheet metal... then feel the floors... then give the trunk a good once-over.

If anything feels squishy or saggy (like carpet being pushed through a hole in the floor), has big rusty holes, or doesn't seem otherwise solid... then Yeah - run away.

Mine actually looked better than this one, but was pretty bad in the usual spots. Any of the above issues noted, I'd say not more than $1200 (assuming it's not a runner).

If you have a way to tow it I'd offer virtually nothing. They can either part it out, have a salvage yard take it away or give it away. It looks like very little is salvageable. Of course the owner probably thinks a good washing and some armor all and it will look as good as new.Rolleyes

I can tell you that you are looking at a 10 grand restore. I know you want to save it, but you can buy a real nice one cheaper than you can restore that. pull those cowl screens off and look in there, if they are rusty, you can add a lot more work.

The engine bay does't look rusty. Looks like the rear of the car has been repaired . Need to look at that. Need to look at cowl frame rails floors and trunk. Is it a 71-72 or 73. Try to locate all vin #s.Try to turn motor over or start would be better. What parts come with it. If all checks out good its worth 2k-3k.

In addition to the rust inspection, are all the parts there? It looks like a fold down rear seat but I didn't see the fold down parts or the bottom of the rear seat. It's missing the front bumper and has the wrong grill, missing the shock tower brace on one side. Has the standard interior, but looks incomplete.

The big ticket item is rust repair. Other potential big tickets are the total cost of all the various missing parts, body work costs, & engine repair costs.

If NO rust then $3k - $4k depending on what all parts are missing. However, it appears that some items are missing. If truly a complete car, running, and just ugly to look at; it may be worth $5k since it would just need paint and freshening up. Sight unseen & just based on those pics: $500.

Btw, welcome to the forum! Where in Alabama are you? War Eagle!
Whatever you do keep us posted.
