we are getting ready to put this up for sale. I have an idea of where to start price wise, but i am asking for YB price advise.
Car is probably 90% original. was originally a 289 2 brl auto car. approx 30 yrs ago a top loader 4 sp conversion was done. It is extremely clean conversion and z bar even has factory ford stickers on it. It has been in storage since 1993ish. last inspected. Going by the inspection sticker and some other paperwork I got with it, it has been driven <3500miles in the last 20yrs. odometer is 103k. It runs like a top. has new holley 600, waterpump, 225 exhaust, fuel pmp, fuel pick up.
THe tires on it are probably mid to late 80s BIAS ply Kelly tires. need replacing, but evidence to its unmolested state. It runs and drives although needs brake bleeding and possibly another new wheel cylinder. I replaced one front and line. It stops but pulls a little.
Every body panel is factory ford 1967. was restored long ago, has some minor putty and a few paint blisters. torque boxes appear repaired but I would replace them. floors, trunk, everything else is very good to excellent.
Here are pics. I AM NOT SOLICITING A SALE here. Just seeking advice, where to advertise and how much? is ebay worth a shot? thanks

Sharp car. I wouldn't put it on eBay unless you want to get pounded by scammers and dumbasses. I would try places like fordmuscle.com, vintage-mustang.com, etc. but those aren't auction sites where the price will get driven up.

$20,000 is way high unless you want to still be selling it in Spring. It looks like a pretty clean car but would still take a lot of money to restore properly to todays standards and a C code fastback once restored isn't often going for much more than that.

I have $600 with your name on it! :) Need my number?

But really $10,000 would be doing OK and getting more would take somebody would is happy leaving it like that.

15k TOPS if it not rusted, because it runs. That's a good day. Customer just bought one for 23k, and a few years ago could have been easy 40-50k car. Fresh restore, 5 spd, AC, gears, etc. Another sold his for 43k. He lost 100k on it. I'd say hold on to it for now. But it may not come up to the same value it was for over 10 years. Just sold a rough one with a toploader, 9in, complete one for 5k.

I have owned 34 old Stangs,,looking at the pics it needs about $12-$15k to make it a top notch resto.

Don't mean to insult, but a reasonable price would be $6000-$8000 depending on the buyer and where you are.

Hell I saw a documented Shelby the other day and they were asking $25k and it wasn't selling.

The market just ain't what it used to be.

Good luck with the sale.

no insults thanks for the information. I will look into those sites, I have seen the junk on ebay and have a good idea of where to start. I am in no hurry. this is not a dump decision. I just dont like it enough to work on it to be honest, it doesnt beg for my every second and last penny like my gto does. now if it had a 427 sideoiler in it who knows!

I would say around 8,000 depending on buyer. I recently sold a totally restored coupe 289 auto, Dark moss green for 14,000.00. But it was pristine. and lost money on it. But i didnt want it and used the money for better purposes.
Again with the work for someone looking to restore no more than 8000.00
Trust me the car market is way down right now.
NOTE: Dont price it based an Barrett Jackson or any other auction.
