Classic 1965 Mustang (#'s Matching Car) Rebuilt Engine, trans, rear-end & Suspension
This mustang has been my personal project for the last few years. In the last few months I've had her Engine, transmission, read-end, front end and rear end suspension rebuilt. All of these parts have less than 50 miles on them, just enough to "break the motor in" - so to speak. The engine-bay, engine, transmission and rear-end have all been taken out and painted. The under side of the car has also been checked for rust (There wasn't any) and undercoating re-applied and painted. Additionally, the body has been painted recently along with the under side of the hood, trunk and door jams.
I've gotten to the point where she's as far as I can take her, and need to sell her. With my father recently passing and my divorce I no longer have the money to put into her, and need to take care of some other things financially.
I have receipts for all recent rebuilds and parts.
I have receipts for all majors parts & machining.
interior: Red Seats/Dash White Headliner Black Carpet
These have been rebuilt and have less than 50 miles on them:
Engine (200cu L6) "Straight - 6" [Original]
Transmission (c4) [Original]
Rearend (Stock) [Original]
Front End: Upper and Lower parts replaced
Rear Shocks Replaced
Front Seat Covers (Within the last 6 months)

Paint less than 3 month old

Wheel-Well Chrome Trim
With the rebuilt running gear, this car is ready to go to the car shows on the weekend or even be a great daily driver! Or or with a little more TLC she can be a great "Original" 'Concourse #1' Show Car. All her main running gear is original, and has matching numbers and tags.
ASKING: $17,500obo - This puts the car between Average & High Retail Value.
Here's what I used to come up with my pricing:
Nada Values: 1965 Mustang 2 Door Hardtop
(Taken from NADA.com)
Low Retail - $7,350
Exterior paint, trim and interior would show normal wear and tear. Most usable 'as-is'.
Average Retail - $17,100
This vehicle would be in good condition overall. Would be an older restoration, or a well maintained original vehicle. Completely operable. The exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are presentable and serviceable inside and out. A '20-footer'.
High Retail - $26,100
This vehicle would be in excellent condition overall. It could be a completely restored or an extremely well-maintained original vehicle showing very minimal wear. the exterior paint, trim, and mechanics are not in need of reconditioning. The interior would be in excellent condition.
Note: This value does not represent a '100 Point' or '# 1' vehicle. A '100 Point' or '# 1' vehicle is not driven. It would generally be in a museum or transported in an enclosed trailer to concourse judging and car shows. This type of car would be stored in a climate-regulated facility.
