Recently, I've decided to that I would make my first classic car purchase. I am looking at a 1968 Ford Mustang Coupe that I found on Mustangs For Sale | Used Classic Mustang Trader Classifieds
. Here is the link to the car -- 1968 Mustang For Sale Beutiful show car Coupe California
--. After contacting the seller I was given the following information. The car was originally the seller's mothers that she inherited in 2004. She had the car completed restored including a new 302 Engine (swapped for the original 289), new transmission, new carburater, new interior and new chrome, new wheels and is rust free. The car was also painted by Glenn Quigley (the painter of the original Mustangs from the Fast and Furious). The seller claims to have receipts and documentation for all the work done to the car. Since the restoration, the car has been garaged and been driven less than 10,000 miles. The seller claims the car is in mint condition and is asking $14,000 for the car.
I live in NY and this car is in California
. The buyer has agreed that I can send a private inspection company evaluate the car prior to me making any offer for the car. My question to you is what do you think about this situation? What questions should I be asking the seller prior to making an offer? How does the price sound? Do you have any other advice? Thanks for your time!
