I found a 1970 mustang on craiglist, the owner wants at least $8000
Is that a good price, or is that too much.

It's hard to say. A lot depends on the body condition the rear valence looks rusty. The rear seat area looks nicely painted, but looks to me like they just painted over the rust. You need to see the floor pans, frame rails, under the fenders, under doors, etc. and around the gas tank in the trunk. The interior seems rough. Engine looks ok, but how many miles since last rebuild? From the pics I'd say its a little high, unless its something real rare and special. Also how much you got to put in it? If its a long term deal maybe it's ok, but if looking for a DD, then you might be taking a big chance. Go drive it and completely inspect it.

chevy runs deep, Don't step in chevy!

Take a mechanic of your choice to inspect it. If the current owner refuses the inspection then walk away.

It's a nice ride, like any old car expect it to break down and expect to spend a good hundred dollars to get it running good. Are you satisfy how it looks right now and whats your budget to get it to your satisfaction.

It's a nice ride and if you have a second car go for it... Not to many of those cars are left and the few that are completely rebuild are to expensive. It will be a nice project car... Start by offering him 6 thousand and move up as you feel comfortable.

I think the most you should pay for it is $8000 if you're willing to put in a little more money once it's yours.

Having had 2 back in the 70's and 80's I'd check deep into the wells of the rear quarters for rust. The seals around the rear windows goes bad and water leaks into the trunk and settles in those wells. That's a big place for rust. Also check all around the lip of the wheel well of all 4 quarters. Check the code to see if it's. 302 2 barrel. Carb motor. If so that's nothing special. Get as much money off as you can and drop a late model 5.0 in it or look for a 351 4V engine. Check if auto Trans is a C4 or stronger C6. That's my 2 cents from back in the day. I had a 70 fastback with 302 2v Auto I bought back in 78 for $900 and a 70 Mach-1 351-C 4V Hurst 4 Speec I bought around 83-84 for $1800. Those days are long gone.
