I would think between 4 and 6000 depending on how good of shape it's in. The 6 cyl really hurts the value to the purist but not me. Most of the v8 cars get thrashed while the 6 cyl cars don't have the power to do much damage to the body.
There was a article last month in one of the Mustang/Ford mags on converting a 6 cyl to an 8 cyl suspension etc. The 65-66 Fastback is a rare site on the street. Don't let it slip away! I assume it is a 36 year old, run of the mill version needing LOTs of work so offer them $700 and go to $1000+ if there is NO rust, old body work, missing parts or broken windows. Good Luck!
the 6 cyl. cars were 4 lug axles, but could be converted to 5, and that will hold back the value but the previous post is right on the money I think. the value should start at about 4k. it all depends on things like condition and how complete the car is. if everything is thrashed and needs replaced it will cost a small fortune to restore. Parts for the old mustangs are priced high. Add $ if it has the "pony" interior, disc brakes or other options.
Fastbacks are gaining in value very rapidly and I would not be supprised to see them pass convertables in a couple of years. If it's a solid core its worth 5K or more. If you put in a V8 and make it a Shelby Clone it will be worth between 15-20K. I just picked up a 65 Fastback with 66,000 original miles and I would not part with it for less than 20K
Jeff, where did you see that they made less fastbacks than convertables? I have a 66' fastback and always thought they made more of these than convertables!
My car is fully restored 2+2 Fastback, Tahoe Turquiose w/Aqua interior, 289 2-barrel, auto, air, power steering, std interior, styled wheels. I was told it was worth around the $13K area.
I'll tell you what I would like to have, is a 66 fastback.. made into one of thos G-machine's or a touring car or what ever they call them.. you know with the 17" wheels, trick brakes and all the handling stuff, sitting real low..
thats about the only thing i would trade my ffr for..
anybody got any pics of anything like this
Not this model car, but the chassie and suspension and stuff.. check it out http://www.compcams.com/Community/Projects/1969Mustang-2002/
My plan after I finish FFR 3839 is to build a 66 GT-350 Clone,
I had a real one in 1986 but sold it just before the prices went through the roof, 66 GT-350 H 4speed, sold it to a guy that worked for ERA in Ct. Should have never sold it..
FWIW, I talked to the lady that owns the car (she is Chief Warden of a federal pen ). I thought this may be a pushover to get a good deal. She said IF she decides to sell, she will ask around 5k. Seeing her profession, I really don't want to haggle to hard
