Question

I'm wanting to get a 66 fastback and restore it myself. Approximately how much is the estimated cost. If possible a breakdown of the cost would be helpful. Thanks all!

Re: Question

impossible to say without knowing the condition of the car you end up getting.. count on a good deal of work going into rust repair.. but how much is going to depend on what needs to be restored and to what degree.. Post a pic and a description of one you may be interested in and that would give me something to "quote" from..

Ouch.. Kind of rough looking. Is it as rusty underneath, under hood as it looks like it maybe? Not impossible to over come but expensive if it is.

I'm not sure about under the hood. I'm really not that worried about cost. In reality I'm more interested in one that's beat to hell so the end product will be that much greater

I would say if you are asking how much it will cost to rebuild, he answer is probably more than you want to spend...

Actually, the car in the picture... Don't give more than $300... Wow, that's a lot of rust...

Take it slow and have fun... The $$ will spend itself...

What would you say for this one? No rust anywhere according to the seller and he is asking 2900. It's a 68 hardtop

Re: Question

Yeah, I'm going to agree.. with Neds68Stang.. its ok to put money into a rust bucket and make it look great, but you DO have to keep what the end value will be, once restored.. If you are putting much more into the car than its end value will be, you will want to keep searching. Without really being about to go over it, I would say keep looking.. unless you are going to all that rust repair yourself and you have a good amount of time to perform the resto..

that 68 is a little better.. all original? offer him $2000 and take it from there.. less, if you can

I got my 68 for 4800 and all it needed was a new ceiling, paint job, gas tank, and some interior painting and electrical issues. It's estimated 2000 at the most to do all that. Snag that second car it looks good.

Gotcha ok. Well if by any chance he ever tells you let me know please. I'm curious as to what it would cost me a month for insurance if I have it as my Weekend warrior.

Its around 120 usually for a teen in. 60s mustang. But also depends on how much coverage and the value of the car

Problem with classic/collector car insurance... You have to garage it and just like the tags for it occasional use (in most cases).

Collector, they will check how many miles you put on it typically and depending how many miles you tell them you do it will go up or down. It can also depend like already said what type of security system the car has and it is not at risk of being stolen, why someone has already said it can't be parked out in the open

I would obviously never in a million years leave my pride and joy out in the open. That baby is going in a garage and covered and treated like the stallion she is/will become
