Just an FYI guys, I have no vested interest in this car.
Tripped over it while surfing around, thought someone might like a lead. The guy's asking $6000.

This car is posted in the '64.5-66 Mustang Forsale forum. I actually went and looked at the car two weeks ago with my father. It would be a really cool car to restore with the documentation and everything being original. It has very little rust and seemed really solid... unfortunately, my dad doesn't want a project right now and I am still holding out for a K code fastback [IMG]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/IMG]

Always amazes me... you'd buy this exact car without engine and tranny if only the VIN had a "K" rather than a "C". And someone else would probably buy it for a lot more than the current asking price. I really don't get it....

And no, I'm singling you out. This is behavior I've seen repeated all over the place. If someone just had a door plate with a "K" VIN and the rest were rust and dust, someone would pay $100.

I hear ya Steve...I guess it all depends on what you want to do with it. I bought mine to drive.

On second reading, I want to apologize for my previous remark.... It's perfectly fine to want an original K-code to restore I just think they're overpriced for what you get.

If I had the time / space / money, I'd jump on this fastback real fast!

Thanks Britton,

The ad doesn't say...but, just so folks know.
Do you remember if it's an A or C?

Buying that would get my parts (and I'm not talkin' engine) put in a vice. I think it would be a cool project. Hmmm maybe for my son!

He's 9 now...

Your right Steve, there are people out there who would pay a lot more than the asking price if this was a K code. My reasoning for wanting one (K fastback) is that it would be more tangible than a 65 GT350 (which is my dream car). I am sure everyone has their reasons for wanting certain cars, thus justifying paying more for it than someone else would...

The fastback that this post is supposed to be about is a C code, Satuerne Gold with white interior, deluxe seat belts, seat belt warning light, and day night mirror. It also had the original spinner hubcaps. The owner also has the original bill of sale and some other documents.

Not to beat a dead horse...but this phenomenon is not just limited to K codes, shelbys, and other rare mustangs. This post exemplifies the craziness when it comes to justifying paying $XXX for a car that most people think is junk... In this case the buyer is paying for a Vin # and "about $1500 worth of parts."

To support Steve's assertion, John68 admits he'd bid on the car for the Vin, only to put it on a coupe.

Certain things just don't make any logical sense...

Yeah, my dream car is a GT350H, but short of winning the lottery, that's never going to happen. A clone, perhaps, in the distant future.
