Update: I thought it was weird the passenger fender was displaying the vin. Well this weekend I received a picture back from the dealer selling the car of the driver side fender vin AND ITS UPSIDE DOWN.

Geeesh! What the hell is going on? Is this amateur hour? So maybe the driver side fender needed to be replaced so the owner notches out the rectangle on the passenger fender to display the passenger fender vin. But why in the heck would the driver fender vin be upside down?

Even if it were right side up it such a blatant re-stamp.... the "K" is 2/3 the size of the rest of the numbers for cryin' out loud.

Because it was hand-stamped by someone who didn't know what he was doing.

Me too. Is this just one of those hypothetical topics, or was there actually interest in purchasing the car ?

Maybe the OP is playing with the seller now, making him think he's got more than a nibble on this one. When the seller thinks he's got a real bite and tries to set the hook the OP will spit the bait out and swim away free leaving a frustrated seller behind.
At least that's what I hope he's doing.

I hope he's not doing that. Even though it may be over priced, atleast the seller is posting everything up front possible about the car.

I agree, the seller has posted a lot of high-res photos, it's not like he's concealing a rusty floor or something.

It's over-priced, but not fatally, unless they won't deal.

That's assuming it's a legit K code, and I have seen nothing to dispute that. I wish I had a dollar for every Mustang I have seen with the left-front apron replaced. I wasn't kidding about the $10k. That car could be a serious show car with a little work. Yanking the engine and detailing the engine compartment, including replacing the left-front apron would be at the top of the list. The rest is easy.

Dude, someone already said it, RUN, RUN, RUN, away from this car. Go to hipomustang.com and you can investigate it there if you wish. Any ways this car has been on ebay for a while, NO Sale. These guys want top dollar for a K code, that is a K code, but is not. For a top dollar price, this car needs to 100 percent stock, 100 percent correct in everyway. Now if you want some mod'd up K car, have at it. Go to the above site list, these guy know EVERYTHING about these cars.

Should already be done for the price listed!

Stan,
No need to be concerned with me and what decision I make with this car. I simply asked how much would this car be worth and I'm pointing out the issues as they arise. Some have told me to walk away instead of answering the original question: the value of this car. As for you, don't be offended or second guest my interest in trying to put a fair price together on this car. Thank you for your feedback you provided a few times now but I'm still waiting on your dollar figure to answer my original question
