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.
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
Bear with my English. I'm trying :-)
