Its easy to sell a car a vintage Mustang at B-J for 50k.

Just put 75k into it and run it through.

Its a mixed bag, I see decent couples in the 6-8k range regularly - lots in teh reaching range of 10-12 that don't belong there. But hey, I know where there is a 69 Mach 1 on CL right now that's only $2900 so prices are all over the board...

I actually didn't know they are going up in price! Always thought a good condition coupe would be 13k! I guess more Mustang enthusiasts are coming to the market from what I can see.

I'm seeing OK-ish restomod coups being advertised at $25k. These would have been advertised at <$15k a couple years ago. I think people are crazy but on the other hand I'd probably advertise my coupe for $25k if I wasn't in a hurry to sell it.

I'd say they are rising up. I didn't even know this until now. I am glad that I got my Mustang from my uncle for a good price. Traded it with him for a bottle of vodka. Right side was damaged, but the hood and fender seemed repairable. Though prices are rising, I was grateful not to have to pay a big price on it.

That add for 2900 makes my 69 f/b shell look like a million plus! Most I have to do is weld in my 1 piece floor pan and a couple of small patches to be nice body wise. Wes

Based on this conversation, what makes you think they are? Everyone seems to agree for the most part that prices are stable over the last few years.

It hadnít been on the road since the early 70ís. Itís not in bad shape for itís age in the rust belt. Itís a 4 door and the grand son right away starts telling me how much a 56 Olds went for on BJ.
You have discriminating taste!! I'm a 1955 man myself, and I couldn't pass up this opportunity to flash a photo of my '55 98 Holiday, rare single-tone paint (I think it looks elegant that way) with red leather/cloth interior, 21K original miles. It's my favorite car from the 50's in our NPD collection.

Regarding the grandson of the '56 Olds owner, surely he knows that the car had too many doors to hit a high number at BJ...

Beautiful! Iíll take a 57 please. I have an irrationally strong desire for a 57 Olds. Every detail of it is just so right.

Thank you and so do you, thatís a beautiful car!

Thatís exactly what I told the kid. But thatís all you need to see what it sold on BJ no matter how many doors apparently.

One thing that I don't agree with on that Hagerty guide on is that (-10% for Auto Tranny).... No way... C4 Auto cars will outsell a 3-speed Manual car today all day long....whether you like stick or not. The C4 Auto just appeals to more buyers especially since most people can't drive stick....just like it did originally..though back in the day more people actually knew how to drive stick and today its just an extra security device...lol.. Now the 4-speed I can understand. Hagerty shows a (+10% for 4-Speed) , and I definitely agree with that...as more people are willing to pay a premium for a 4-speed no matter what engine is under the hood.

I'm in Florida...and I find most coupes here in driver shape sells from 8k-10k for a decent driver.... though prices are climbing a bit within recent years..
