Re: Guidance on buying a '65-'66 Convertible

If your near Charlotte there's a place called Street side Classics that usually has some old mustangs. Usually high price so if you want a fixer upper they won't have one

Streetside Classics - Consignment and sales of classic cars, muscle cars, collector cars, street rods, exotics

They have a 65' convertible:

Re: Guidance on buying a '65-'66 Convertible

I've seen online what Streetside has to offer. Agree they have some nice looking cars, but would probably over-pay slightly if dealing with them, consignment issues, etc.

I'm not looking for a show car, but I'm not looking for a project car either.
Something mechanically sound, that looks good, that I can drive spring/summer, etc. Now obviously I know a 45+ year old car will require more than routine maintenance to keep on the road, but I don't have a desire to make this a restoration project.

My budget is between $15k-$20k, and my biggest concern is how do i know that I'm getting my money's worth? I've seen a lot of nice cars that meet some or all of my criteria, but how do I know if a particular Mustang is worth what the seller is asking?

find a pro in restoring old cars, even better if they specialize in first gen mustangs. They can go over all the regular trouble areas and suchand let you know if its a solid car or a POS
