Question about an old Mustang(from the 60s)?

I want a Mustang from the 60s as an everyday driving car and have a few questions.

How big are they compared to the ones out?

How are they(in general)on gas mileage?

If they have low mileage(say under 100,000)and were taken good care of it shouldn't be getting fixed a lot right?

How do i get parts when it needs fixing, would my car place order them or would I have to get them online on websites that sell old Mustang parts?

You might find that an old Mustang from the 60's could cost you as much as one from the 90"s, especially if it has been maintained well and is in excellent condition.

Early Mustangs can be upgraded with new technology, like a coil-over front suspension, disc brakes, brake booster, aluminum engine parts, and even 4 speed overdrive automatics for improved performance and fuel economy. A 302 V8 with a 4 speed auto could return about 20mpg, depending on your driving and rear axle gear ratio. Yes, this all costs money, but classic Mustangs have proven to be a very sound investment.

Question about an old Mustang(from the 60s)?

I want a Mustang from the 60s as an everyday driving car and have a few questions.

How big are they compared to the ones out?
I would say they are a bit shorter and longer. And have a motor that is easier to work on cuz its not just cramped in there

How are they(in general)on gas mileage?
I depends on the size of the motor that is in it but if you get a 351 or smaller I would say 8 - 10 mpg. anything bigger your gonna get less

If they have low mileage(say under 100,000)and were taken good care of it shouldn't be getting fixed a lot right?
If they have few miles on them they could have been babied or parked.
If its been parked then your gonna have to consider battery, stale gas, spark plugs and all sorts of stuff if its been driven from time to time yes i would say thats better.

How do i get parts when it needs fixing, would my car place order them or would I have to get them online on websites that sell old Mustang parts?
you could get online or find someone who is parting it out and selling their car part by part. or you can special order them from Checker/O'Reilly, Autozone, Napa places like that
