6 cylinder. Body is almost perfect. Needs minor interior work. Stored in a garage in El Paso. Any ideas?

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

Add a 347 stroker, Tremec, and disk brakes, and it's priceless!

They made less Fastbacks than convertibles. They are going up in price. I have a fake GT 350 I wish it was real.

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.

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..

My book has the exact same #'s that ChuckR posted. Mine is also a factory air, auto,power brakes,power steering,289 2-barrel. I would think yours is worth a little more than 13k.

FWIW, I talked to the lady that owns the car (she is Chief Warden of a federal pen :eek: ). 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 :eek: :D
