Is it a good deal? Yeah I guess...depending on what your looking for.
I don't think they are going to be a collectors item.. They are generally pretty hated by the muscle car community. Basically, they are a joke.. and most people tear the front suspension out of it for hot rod projects.

If your buying it just to have fun, go for it. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but that's fine... I just don't think it's going to gain substantially in value.

As for a good deal for that, I'd say it definitely it is.

Great deal for a show car like that. The car has many customizations and is a very cool ride. It would make a fun driver. One thing I like about it is the engine. It's been completely rebuilt to performance specs, which would have cost a good deal of money. It also has been equipped with fuel injection, which is a neat feature.

I'm surprised they don't want closer to $15,000 for a personalized, custom car like this.

To stangace: It's fast alright. I can guarantee that. It's got a '69 302 that's been completely rebuilt with Edelbrock parts. It also has a full performance exhaust. This means 300+ HP in a car that weighs only 2800lbs.

Well it may be popular but it's hardly a cool/collector's car.
(the early 70's stangs are starting to become cool though)

$7500 isn't bad if you really want it, but your son might get laughed at a bit by mustang fans seeing that mustang 2's are the outcasts of the mustang family.

Mustangs took a real hit on HP in the early 70's and by the end they were absolutely gutless, so unless he's souped it up it's not going to be fast by any means....it may even have trouble getting up to freeway speed.

Maybe buy your son a honda while he learns to drive/take care of a car...cause it could cost you if this gets hit/totaled

As a prior 78 King Cobra owner. I can tell you that these are miserable cars to work on. Pinto Chassis. Terrible brakes, handles very poorly. I personally always liked the looks and the interior but they were really never built to be performance cars. Also very dangerous if he gets rear ended. fuel tank is the same as the Pinto's...BOOM!!!
