Well, the appraisal says anything that I got above 40 grand would be coming out ahead. But I can very honestly say that there is no price on my car. Someone could offer me any variety of rare cars and huge amounts of cash and I would still say no. Now, other Mustangs I might have in the future? Yeah, they'll probably all have a price. But not this one.
The 64 is one that I've told everyone that will have to be inherited. It'll never be for sale. My butt has been in that seat for way too many miles and it's a part of the family. I know Kelly has a lot of herself in her car and knows that feeling.
The 69 GT convert will most likely be in the family for just as long, but a really stupid offer might be entertained!
My 65 K GT FB is also on the NFS list, as my friend sold it to me knowing I would never re-sell it.
I did sell my 65 K GT convert and will never stop with the kicking! Only saving grace is I bought it for $16K in 1989 and sold it in 1992 for $35K. I had an offer to trade it and $10K for a 68 GT350 convert and didn't do it!

I had a couple guys stop by yesterday to look at a car I am selling, they both noticed my 57 Chevy in my garage. They asked if it was for sale,"Nope!" I told them the story about how this was the last car my father purchased just before he passed away and that it is not for sale. They asked again what I wanted for it, I told them "It's not for sale." We chatted about the other car they can to look at and again they asked " How much for the 57?"
At this point I am pissed, I told them that we are now done talking. Thanks for coming by. It just pissed me off that they kept pushing me about the 57.
I feel your frustration, I've had people get angry at me because I wouldn't sell a car to them. I think people have gotten worse with these stupid flipper shows , maybe it's because the hobby seems more money driven due to higher prices I feel like etiquette and Tact haven taken a back seat ,I feel like most of the inquiries I get are from people looking for the next great Killer Deal, Barn Find,quick flip,.IMO.
I think my car is worth in the $20-$25K range, and it took me two years to find and I've put in many hours to make it my car (had it for 4.5 years now). However, if someone offered my $30K and I had my eye on something else (would have to be a convertible), then I would seriously think about it.
