Intro and 1970 mustang question
Hello mustang fans. I'd like to say a brief hello and ask some advice. I bought a 1970 Grande about 16 years ago to work on with my dad. Life happened and my dad's health took a turn for the worse, and long story short, it still isn't running. The previous owner was turning it into a drag car and scrapped the Grande vinyl top and swapped out the transmission column for a B&M quick shift. I've had several people offer to buy it through the years, but kept refusing assuming nobody would pay me what I've put in the car. It has a 302 bored .030 over, 4 barrel carb, hooked headers (no exhaust yet) , no rust on the body to speak of, new heat blower motor, 8.8 rear-end out of a '68 stang, ralley wheels, seats have been recovered in black vinyl. I had some one say name a price and I threw out the figure $6,000. The guy reresponded with "do you want it in $100 bills or a cashiers check?" That threw me for a loop and I told him to give me until Sunday to decide. Is $6000 a good figure to get for a mustang that isn't running and can probably never be fully restored even if someone wanted to? I'm considering taking the $6000 and put it towards a mustang that is currently running. Any thoughts?
