$15,000 in California gets you:

Not much, really.

This is an example of a fastback you'd find here, as the quality of cars leftover seems to be dwindling. My guess is that it'll still sell over 10k.

Here in FL you’d pay 10k for something like that and would be covered in rust.
I blame Barret Jackson, Mecum, and all those other shows that make people think their old POS is worth $$$$.

Here is one in Detroit, https://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/c...800906562.html. It's a 70, with a 93 Mustang parts car for drivetrain upgrades, looks better than the 68 as far as a project goes. I have no interest in the car, just posting to show what else is out there. Jim

Do your own research, I'm just a work in progress

Someone will, there's a azz for every seat. I honestly believe the day is coming where a vintage Mustang with a clean title and VIN stamping no matter what body or engine is going to be a big ticket draw.

Decent deals can still be found but you have to be patient and diligent in pursuit. It took me over a year of searching until a found a numbers matching 70 Mach 1 outside San Diego last year - $13,000 delivered. It was being sold with some other cars so it was kind of lost in the middle of the advert. Took a flyer on it and lucky me, the only rust was in the driver's side floor pan.

It is getting ridiculous! But on the bright side we don't lose money on our cars

I love how the ad says it's only got surface rust, and then shows a pic of one of the front frame rails with a giant ragged rust smiley clear through it. The "all caps" for emphasis really helps too.

While I don't wish anyone ill, this seller seems like a real troll to me. The rare knockoff wheels are worth a lot, but even including those and the fact that it's a fastback, 15k seems mighty steep. Add to that the fact that he's being dishonest about what he's selling? Doesn't seem like a great bargain to me.

I know I paid too much for my California hardtop but it is really rust free! Seems like an odd spot for rust through on the fastback frame rail.

Nice guy in the ad. His friend dies and he wants it gone and will even take trades on it.
