Value of this 1966 K-code Coupe

VMFrs,
Here is a beautiful 1966 K-code coupe being sold at $49.9K. It has been for sale for many months at this price. Is it over priced? What would YOU offer for this car?

Hmmm… The wheels and steering wheel are wrong, shift knob wrong, tach is crap, tailpipe tips installed WAY wrong, seat belts are crap, has a 67 rear view mirror, bumper guards missing, engine compartment entirely bogus (RED? Really?), intake manifold wrong, coil on wrong side, bogus inline fuel filter, wrong wires, poorly routed, bogus wire separators, bogus fuel line, wrong carburator, wrong sway bar, painted transmission, painted steering linkage, window cranks wrongly aligned, Wal-Mart antenna (Really? Concours-correct is $17), luggage strip missing from LH wheelhouse, taillight wiring falling down, shocks wrong color, floor plugs installed upside-down, muffler hangers missing, H-pipe welded to intermediate pipes, bogus fuel pump, caution fan decal, bogus battery cables, Monte Carlo bar, bogus wiper blades, of course throw away the floor mats and tire cover, warranty plate not properly stamped or installed (AND THEY LEFT THE PLASTIC FILM ON IT), wrong thermostat housing, and some stuff I missed.

It's worth maybe $35,000 - $40,000, when you look at the really nice fit and finish (the paint and panel alignment is a little TOO good) it might have been worth $50,000 if done right, and then subtract the $10,000 it will cost to fix the above list.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

"$50K if done right"? It's not a vert, and not being proclaimed as a GT either. More like $35K tops if done right as a coupe. Then deduct your $10K to fix stuff. Vanguard motors is (as per usual) looking for suckers and willing to wait until one comes along.....

I just called Vanguard Motors. The saleman, Tom, couldn't even initially tell me if the fender stamped vin matches the reproduction door plate. He is going to "check on it" for me and call me back.

Can you arm me with a few questions to ask to determine if this is a real K-code engine? What do I need to verify to know that it's a real K-code motor?

22GT,
BTW, you have a great eye to notice the wrong stuff with this car. Thank you for pointing it all out for me. I appreciate your time doing that!

HIPO 289's also had their VIN numbers stamped on the block above the starter... if door matches inner fender and title.. ask them to pull the starter and take a picture...

Another oddity... someone cut a notch in the lip of the passenger front fender to highlight the VIN... it is hidden from the factory...

Vanguard Motor Sales gave me the casting number on the car as follows: C5AE-6015E which is a K-code but I have concerns about the reproduction vin plate on the driver door.

And get this: the vin stamping is on the PASSENGER fender (*6F07K273899*) Isn't it suppose to be on the driver's fender??!

Also the Date code on the door plate is: 09Z but mustangdecoder.com cannot find that date code. Why?

Any feedback?

09Z would be a December 9th scheduled build date. The vin stampings originally should have been placed thusly:

Why are you still persuing this? From what we've all said, it's FAKE!
