What are you looking to trade for? Do you have any engine parts past the short block?

I would consider a trade for a nice FFR roadster (complete) or an early mustang V8 convertible. I have the complete 302 that came with the car as well as the original power steering setup.
My future plans call for Trick Flow heads and fuel injection with a 5-speed.

Work continues on the car:

New Gas tank, fuel sending unit and filler neck.

Detailed and re-installed brake pedal assembly

Cleaned and installed wiper motor assembly, including new chrome bezels

Installed New carpet padding

interior completely sound insulated, including inner quarter panels, floors and roof.

Cleaned, repainted and re-installed fresh air Vent assembly.

Purchased New Windshield (Ford)

Installed New trim clips around front/rear glass. The glass will be in within the week.

Note that all parts are media blasted, cleaned and repainted before installing on the car.

The car gets closer to completion each week and will only increase in value. Wiring and interior will be installed prior to August.

This is an all original sheet metal, rust free 2+2! No corners have been cut anywhere. These cars will continue to increase in value and desirability.

I will take 20K for the car as-is or trade up for a roadster.

Steve,

I believe everyone is waiting until the driveline is finished before they even consider your offer for a trade. You might want to concentrate on getting the car running before your next "TTT" posting.........

If I finish it, I'm keeping it. Right now I don't have time to finish and it sits mostly.

Then you better consider either drastically lowering your asking price, or adding the incentive of extra dollars on top of what you currently have on your hands. Remember, the sum of the parts does not equal the value of the deal (on either side of the equation).......Again, just my personal observation........

I never expected a straight swap for a nicer car, but the amount I am willing to put in is dependant on the particular roadster considered.

What I have to consider:

I don't need the cash and don't have to sell - so no rush.

The value of the mustang continues to climb.

I am making progress (slow, but it is moving)

So, out there there might be someone with a roadster who is looking for a more practical car. If not, I still have a damn nice mustang fastback - so I win either way.

This seems to indicate the amount.
