I have a friend who's trying to sell a pair of Mustangs. They are both basket cases, but one of them is an A code '66 convertible that might be worth a few bucks.
Can you guys take a look and let me know what you think? My guess is about 1500 for the convertible and 400 for the coupe. I do not know what the condition is of the floorpans on the '66, but I would assume they need some work. She has asked me to help give her an idea of what to ask for them.
The ragtop is originally silver blue metallic with light blue standard interior. The coupe is originally pebble beige with parchment standard interior, and its a C code.
I think you're close on both estimates- maybe a little more if they have clear titles- I would look at the Vin/ maybe clean rad support (hoping maybe one or the other has something special about it- prob not) Vins don't necessarily make it special- but it might be if the seq vin is something like 100008, prob not if its 350008, or if the rad support markings indicated something (not sure in 66 or 67- but early 65s that say pace or worlds fair are indeed special) In all likely hood they are nothing special, but poor condition parts cars (do ask the lady about any history she might know about- like did Jimi Hendrix own one of these etc)
The vert may be worth saving depending on how it looks underneath and if it has title matching fender apron VIN. Maybe $1000 on the vert. The coupe has maybe some good parts, a person has to see better, maybe a door, hood, possibly fender.
Keep in mind cost of hauling/shipping. We're talking flatbed at about $1/mile with a $50 strarter ($50 minimum for just coming ).
My guess is no one will be willing to pay to get the coupe any distance. The shipping/hauling may be more than it's worth if the car is free!
