So it appears they have priced it at $1/mile. About 2X too high IMO, but I’m sure I’m the odd man out here.

At least it’s a documented car.

I think it’s a beautiful car that’s significantly overpriced IMO.

73K? Way, way overpriced...

Not a bad car, with excellent documentation too, but...

Both Doors are ruined.....Some idiot put speakers in the doors....

Rear Leaf Springs not original....

The rest is pretty good.. Surprising that with all it has, It has no Deluxe Interior.

The car should be in the high 40's.....Not 73K.....

Not exactly what I'd call a "Concours" restoration either...

I ask because I looked at that car a couple months ago. I do business in St. Louis and drive over to Fastlane sometimes for something to do, it's great to walk around and see the overpriced cars.
Anyway, it's not correct vintage burgandy, it has A LOT of flake in it. Also, they half assed the jambs when they painted it. I wouldn't give them any more than $30K for that car.
It's not junk but there are soooo many overlooked details and "flip it" type things that it would take a lot of work and money to make it a nice sorted out car.......just my opinion.

I will be in St Louis again next week, I can stop and take specific pics for you or look at things you have questions on.
PM me if you want.

Its desirable X4 ways from Sunday no doubt. The tweeners might be the hardest to value- Its not restored yet its not a survivor- doesn't have the high end resto-mod pieces. I think the engine has been out for detailing or rebuild and everything visible up top looks almost too good, so....

I don't feel that the reg. receipts would add to the dollar value for me, it just adds to the warm fuzzy feeling.

I think the color is pretty far off but that could be in the camera. Beware fresh paint.
Those crooked pipes bug me and should any self respecting shop or DIY guy. Was it a cheap slap job to re-sell?
It has more undercoating than i'd like to see at this price level.

To bad you can't find something like that before it go snatched by the dealers, Im thinking they marked it up ~~ $20K or more if they did the paint and few other things like the exhaust.. Many contradictions.

What I see incorrect since I own a factory 67 GT:

Tach needle not at zero - may need to be restored
Rear seat belts, passenger rear has seat belts backwards - male buckle always on outside edge.
been said door speakers
Engine bay, apron at firewall - paint line not even with firewall, (common mistake) cars been repainted.
Engine bay passenger side on cowl - copper ground clip for hood missing, can see just the hole.
Rubber strip across radiator support missing for an S code..
Marti report states Deluxe wheel- seems to be missing...

So for that asking price, none of the above should incorrect.

Oh export brace looks aftermarket - the diff rise angle in the bends.

Drive side front bumper wrap around to fender looks OK, horizontal. the passenger side not, bends upwards.

If you borrow a tool more than twice, you need to own it You get what you pay for!

The $16.40 1968 registration is pretty cool! Nice car, but way overpriced.

66 Convertible. Full restoration in the works

Very Cool Car. Looks like it may have hidden issues though. I would take a close look at whats under the surface. The floor definitely has a rust hole in the tunnel area as seen in the pic below.

Is FastLane a "broker" using the price and description provided by an anonymous owner? Or does FastLane own the car outright and accept responsibilty for the description and actual condition of the car?

Move along. Nothing to see here.
