....and also, having a chance to buy one, I would like to know the value, if anyone got an idea of that.

Thanks in advance.

*** AMENDED BELOW ***
Just a few years ago, one of the Mustang specialty-supply houses was selling them new for $19.99 USD. Such aftermarket items are difficult to place values on as they are a matter of personal taste, and were never marketed through the Ford dealership network. Values for the Ford, FoMoCo, Rotunda, etc. items are easier to establish as they have an active collector following.

I'm sorry I can't respond with a value for you, but will add if you think it's worth it and desire it, then $5, $10, or $15 USD isn't that big a deficeit in the big picture. On the other hand, if he's wanting $75-100 for it; I think that's well above what I'd think it's worth.

:jawdrop: ... Well, it sounds like those with recent viewing that they've gone WAY up... I still think they're... hmmm... how will I say it... too exclusive for me...

My car came with one and IIRC I sold it a year ago for $40 or $50. Please note that it was complete and in very good condition. The mechanism worked, but it definitely didn't sound like a horse. Occasionally, one shows up on Ehay.

Cripes! They go for a bundle!

There's another on eBay right now up to $81 with lots of time left.

I watched one on D Bay a few months ago... It was new and in the box, it went for over $200. Im not saying thats what they are worth , but it did sell for that.

Carroll Shelby with indigestion? With the prices over $200 he'd have to be involved somehow.

I'd be willing to pay $1 for it. And of course I would list it in on ebay about 5 seconds later.

I sold mine last year and I think I got around $150 for it! I don't even know if it worked, It wasn't connected when I got the car and I just pulled it out because I thought it was silly.

65 Fastback now under construction!

Thanks everybody. As a collector of NOS Mustang accessories, a thing like this is not for use. Silly yes, but still it's a part of history.

That it is a part of history is true, but it is the "Aftermarket Kitsch" history, not the Mustang history. :-)

Maybe the time has finally come for me to unload the NOS 65-6 Egg-crate grille I have... and Mustang Electronics FM converter... and Mustang Electronics 8-Track to cassette converter... and... :no:

Exactly. Two different things, but still .... I just get a good laugh of it. Believe it or not, I'm after a hood ornament from the period as well (not the new ones offered at Ebay now). To keep you sleep well at nights, I will not put these things in the same closet as the original Mustang accessories
