Lol.. I have three young boys that can't wait to find daddy a car.. so the back seat will be used.. I'll probably be the one left home. I think I'm going to offer 5k for the one in omaha.. if he doesn't bite at that, I'll try the others

5-6K on the Omaha car would be a good deal. In my opinion.

73 Grande H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

Yes on the Omaha car. 5k would be a fair price. I would leave the wheels out of the deal. Let the husband and the boys pick out the wheels. Wheels are kinda of a big deal for us boys! :D

Here's info on the one in Atlanta

 

One spot of rust in the rear drivers side wheel well. About the size of a baseball. The price is about what I have in it not counting my time spent on the upgrades & replacements done. Will need the front shocks replaced. VIN# 1F05M173009 Hope this helps

This actually doesn't look too bad.

 

The pic with the painted car threw me for a minute. I guess it shows what the color should look like? I don't think its the same car as the one in primer.

This is not a bad price given it is the year you prefer. It is a true Mach 1. And even better it is an M code. His price really isn't that bad but I am a firm believer that standing in front of someone with cash they tend to be willing to bargain.

I think it may be the same car. Sure looks like the same house in the pics.

Expect mechanical work on most stuff out there at this price range. Remember, people have very widely ranging ideas on what 'good' is. To some, if the motor starts 'it's good', if they don't see rust while standing next to it then it's 'solid'....even though they have never looked underneath. Or it's not even important to them and so it shouldn't be to you.

 

Always ask for more pics. All the worst rust prone areas are known, so it's hard to get pics of them.

Holy cow guys. Now that I've been looking at all of these mustangs all day (when I should have been working... lol). I WANT ONE!!! Heck with getting one for hubby. I want one for myself. I'm loving the sky blue colored ones. :-)

 

Karla :P

 

Ha! That's funny.

ok. I'm going to make an offer on one of these fine mustangs. The question is. Which one?? They all look decent. I like different things about each one. I really like the option of the 351c motor. And I would like a manual transmission, but I know that's something he can change if he wants to. So give me your honest opinions on each one. The norfolk one is closest and can be driven to be picked up. So that's a plus on that side.

The ad is deleted. Did you buy it?

 

And welcome to the site!!

 

 

Nope, he never responded to me, my text, voice mail box was full so I couldn't even leave a message. I would have had he gotten back to me.

I think bang for the buck the Omaha or Atlanta cars are going to be your best bet, but this is just based on the information provided in the ad and the limited pics. Both are 351C "M" code cars. Both are running and driving vehicles, both appear to be complete cars. The Omaha car is a 4 speed, you mentioned converting an auto to a manual. This is not a bad project. I converted my automatic to a modern 5 speed manual and it is a lot of work but doable. (plan on over $2k for the conversion including the trans).

I think these would be worth further consideration.

I had a car shipped from out west using uship.com. it is an auction site where shippers bid on the shipment and you pick which one you want to use. Seems like my fee was $1100 to get it from Utah to south Alabama.

I agree, Omaha car first choice if you dont mind its a sportsroof and Atlanta car second choice if you don't mind its a auto trans. As far as shippers go I have used DAS (dependable auto shippers) with good results.

The Oklahoma city car has been on Craigslist for quite awhile, maybe a couple years. Could be a good reason it's still for sale...or maybe they are just asking way too much.
