I've been considering buying either a new or restored classic mustang for the last few years. I wasn't quite ready to start shopping until I stumbled across this resto-mod 1965 in a local showroom. Listed for $24,995 with "sale" price of $20,995.
You'll notice that in the photos the car has a tag that says "Nortwest Investment Cars", which is a boutique dealership on town. After checking their website I found the same care listed as sold for $17,995. Facebook shows listing date as 1/27 and sold date as 3/23. NWI says they got "real close to ask" and that it went into a local collection.
The total investment is pictured receipts is $17,177. I know that part of this was a new paint job (red with metalflake). New wiring by painless and upgrade from I6 to 289 with 4BBL. The last listing gives more details of the restoration and shows $25,000 investment. They had it listed in NV for
I spoke to the current dealer yesterday and told them that I saw it listed for $17k at NWI (forgot it was actually $18k). The salesperson I talked to was willing to take the $17k straight away.
I would like some opinions on whether the $17k offer seems like a good price for this car or whether there would still be some movement on that price. The car shows quite well but I haven't been under it or driven it yet. I haven't really looked at mustang prices for quite some time. Even thought the seats and engine aren't correct for the car, they are very well done. I love the thought of finding my car from a local dealer rather than driving a ways or having one shipped. Any insight from you guys would be helpful.
