need advice

ok i got the mustang almost complete just need to hook up the power steering i need 2 exhaust studs and a throttle cable now, my fathers friend wants to buy it and im not sure how much to ask for it if i decide to sell it. every gasket on the motor is brand new the trannys perfect no grinds at all, newer clutch, newer flowmaster exhaust, bbk headers i have a decent amount of money into the motor not to mention i have the forged bottom end from the super coupe that goes if i sell it spare heads and all and the body is 98% perfect interior is 80% needs a driver seat because of a broken spring.its got 85*** miles the tires have about 80% tread and there is things im forgetting but my ? is if this was your car and you put the money and man hours into this how much would you sell it for? the reason im thinking of selling is im looking at some gt's and there is a 96 fire chicken that i was looking at with 85*** miles lt1 6 speed been garaged for a while because it needs a clutch guy wants $3500 for it i thought this was a steel seeing that ive seen them going for 7-8000 with high miles it would be a quick fix then i would sell for a nice profit to buy a new edge gt ive always wanted. so tell me what you guys would do

Re: need advice

This is just an opinion from looking at the pics, but I'd start around $4,000 and not go any lower than $3000. I guess it's based off how quickly you want to get rid of it. If it's someone you know that wants to buy it, that might make it easier since they might know the amount of time/money you spent on it.

Normally, you can't base if solely off the money and man hours spent building it. Unfortunately, many people don't consider all the time you spent making the car what it is important. They don't consider modifications such as those to increase value...

If you got 3,000 for it, you could get that 96 t-bird down to 3,000, buy it and sell it for more. Or you could take the money you get from the mustang and put it towards a GT. There are quite a few decent ones around the Ohio area via a craigslist search, lol.

It's up to you...I'd be safe asking $3500-4000 for it and go from there.

Good luck and keep us updated

Well the starting price would be KBB in good shape for the most part. If the buyer wants the mods then add up the total investment and see if you can get them to pay 50-70% of that~ its just all about how much extra the mods are worth.
