71-73 Mustangs cost just as much to restore as earlier cars and don't have nearly the value. You can buy a really, really nice Mach for about $15-20K. Easy to put more than that into a car with a lot of needs. This is a 3-speed (yuk) car with the H-code (2V) motor. However, it looks like a car that you could drive as you restore it. If you start getting into body/paint and mods (like a 4-speed) the $$ can add up in a hurry. If the interior is total trash and it had the upgraded interior be prepared to spend $2-3K just for the parts. And the wiring harness thing worries me.
