Doesn't look too bad. I too would start at $3.5k. My guess is that You'll probably get it for somewhere around $4 though depending on the condition of the metal!

It's better than some of the others you've posted. Take a magnet with you. Stick it all over the quarters around the wheel wells, along the rocker panels.

If the owner is cool, pour a gallon of water down the cowl and make sure none of it drains into the car and it all makes it's way to the ground.

i love all 60's mustangs. ever since my dad took me to my first car show they have always been my favorite car of all time. 64.5-68 and even 69 and 70. my favorite being the 65 and 68 fastback. i remember being 10 years old flipping through mustangs unlimited catalogs, by the way are they still around?

anyways I'm not very picky but i don't have the cash for the 68 fastback or any fast back for that matter.

ideally i want a car with no rust and good suspension and a non running 289/302 b/c i plan to install a 351w. i want one installed but not running so i can get a better price and take pictures and mental notes to help me install the new motor. ive never done an engine swap before just transmissions.

Well, for the no rust portion of your wish list we will need a budget, cause those cars are not cheap and are rarely sitting around with no motor in them.

i settled on the price of 4,500 for the car. i told him i wanted to do one last look around and asked for a glass of water. i poured it in the cowl, and what do you know right down the vent into the floor board. so i ended up walking.

from underneath it didn't look to bad. like maybe some bondo and a new seal for the vent. should i come back with another offer or just stay away. any easy repairs?

Good luck finding a non rusted cowl in Ohio. Also you are negotiating backwards. Find the car you want, pick apart any problems, make an offer. Not make an offer and then try to get it down. You have to be care free and non interested to make a great deal.
What did the seller say when you dumped the glass of water in the cowl?
