Confused Value?? 65 GT

I guess it's time to figure out what to do with this carcass. It's a documented 6 GT convert. It was my 1st mustang, but was hit hard while my Ex was driving it. Unfortunately, for a long time, I did not have a secure place to store it and there's a rust issue. With the "experts" here, is it salvageable or should it just be scrapped?

Great for a coupe conversion, don't scrap it. IMHO that is a lot of work and a lot of missing pieces.

Exactly what you wanted, but not what you asked for...

Well, the left one is trashed, but those holes are in the stock 1966 door speaker location.

I know people who would jump at the chance to rebuild that car. And in truth I've seen Mustangs worse than that get fully restored. 1965-6 GT convertibles don't exactly grow on trees.

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

thats the first time i can remember seeing factory speaker holes. 65-66 mustang i ever saw and owned had the am radio and dash speaker. my comment also meant the car was well worth restoring.

I've seen worse restored but skip the bucket, it will need a barrel full of money.

In all honesty, this is prime case of VIN more valuable than the car it is attached to. Everybody has their opinion on the legality and morality of doing it, but if you started ordering every Dynacorn part required to repair this, you might as well order the whole body already assembled.

Is the dash buckled? That's legit. I hope your wife is ok from that. Obviously a while ago.

That patch panel looks too small he might need the larger size.

I do have quite a bit that I took off right away. The front seats are the original Ford vinyl, as I put aftermarket seats in and saved the originals. The rear seat disappeared somehow, during some moves. I do have access to other sources for parts as well as an untouched 289.

I say fix it. As somebody here stated these GT's don't grow on trees. A non GT maybe not, but a true GT, you got something there IMO.

That's going to take a really big buffer to get that to come back. But it is possible

Its not the age its the mileage.

Confused Value?

What would you all think as a price to sell this to someone that can restore it? I know it needs a LOT of work, but with only 15,000 GT's built in 65- all body styles, there is some value here. What would a reasonable person pay for this so as to not get buried in it by the time it's done? Fortunately, GT's are going up in value, so there's some room here for a fair price.

By my estimation, a really good condition true GT convertible can be had for 40k or a bit more. (I'm sure there are exceptions)

What do y'all think it takes to restore a VIN with virtually unrestorable shell attached? I'm sure it depends on a bazillion factors, but supposing one does everything but spray the paint themselves, it's going to cost about the same price. The GT status may keep it from being a losing proposition but nobody is making money on this car.

I say it's worth as close to $10k as you can get but it'd be a fool's errand to pay more. That's JMO though.
