Quick 66 mustang question! bay area!
Hey guys! So put simply, was just looking at selling my car and one of the offers was a guy wanting to trade a 66 mustang (with a 95 cobra 5.0, T5 trans. brakes from an 04 cobra, new paint, aftermarket suspension, rims, etc...), plus some cash for my car.
Since I've never really worked with or been familiar with mustangs, I was wondering if anyone could give any ballpark estimates of what it might be worth? I attached pictures, it sounds pretty good, it's got cams, and apparently just about every bolt on he could find. Says it makes *almost* 300 hp, so definitely not a track beast.
Basically I'm trying to gauge how much money would need to be added on based on the value of the car or at least get a rough idea!
In any case thanks for your time and have a great evening!
Depends on what you want to do with it? If its going to be a DD or is it going to be a project? Those older 5.0s are not real power engines so dont expect to much out of it. Its hard to tell from the pictures of the interior looks like it could use some TLC. Does the owner have documentation of all the work done? Mileage on engine, brakes, trans?
Thank you for the reply! Yes he does seem to have all the documentation, and he sent me the more complete list of work done to it (copied below)
I am honestly interested in making it one of my DD's, the plan being either get it up to 450-500 or swap engine to something that can handle more power (read a lot about them splitting and whatnot), and supercharge it. He wants to trade it plus money for my 93 supra, single turbo, forged pistons/rods, v161, it's a built car, but I've also got a stock 98 supra TT now, with 31k miles, and I am just gonna slightly raise the boost to get 350 out of it with the stock twins.
So I would really love to do the trade + cash, but I can't if I don't know an approximate value :/

Well two things come into mind.
1. That 5.0 will not reach your HP goals and still be DDable. Those engines are not that great. Your looking 300HP tops with that he has in there right now. To get it to your goals is going to require all forged internals and alot of weight loss in the car. Plus FI.
2. Buying a car with that much mods to it is just asking for trouble. You dont know if this guy knew what he was doing, if corners were cut, how things are ran. You could spend a week just trying to trace down a electrical problem. Just something to think about.
