What's my junk car worth?

I have this old 1981 mustang sitting in my back yard. I want to sell it to a gear head.. someone that likes to fix up junkies.

But I don't know what's a fair price. I have some pictures for you to see. Let me know what you think.

This is just a preview. Please download the zip for the real pics.



Let me know what it's worth, and what people look for in a purchase of this type. Any other questions, I'll be around.

Thanks for your time!!!!

Re: What's my junk car worth?

It's a straight 6, and the only body "damage" is rust, which is documented in the photos. I"m afraid I don't know anything else about the car.

You sure it isn't the 2.8 V6 carb'd version? I didn't know they put a straight 6 in that year.

Not to be mean but by lookin at a couple of the pictures and not knowing anything about engine, tranny or even if it runs. you would be lucky to get a couple hundred at best whats the under carriage look like?

Re: What's my junk car worth?

i offered 500 to someone that had a 79 in their basement and it actually still ran and wasn't too bad looking. they told me they would sell it for 1,000 so i told them they can keep it.

Re: What's my junk car worth?

Ok y'all...related to the OP statement.

How about an 81 5 speed 4 cylinder...1/3 primer, 2/3 original paint, runs enough to get home the 4 mile drive, currently gutted, rear hatch won't stay open...needs new struts, 2 5 lug pontiac wheels, 2 4 lug original ford wheels....some surface rust, driver floor pan rusted through....no dash, only the guages.

I offered $75...sound fair? Did to me. lol

Dig up pavement.

I'm trying to get Mikey-poo (cajun jungle tinkle) to sell me his 81 for the $75 I just charged him for a web site update.

Then...I'll start looking at motors.

You gotta get a vid blowing the engine first...you won't get any money out it besides scraps.

Once I'm done DD'ing it. lol I changed my mind after posting that about ripping the motor out this weekend...unless it is to clean it up first.

But yeah, need to have some fun in it before I make it all pretty.
