I havent kept up with prices but that may be a fair price for an '08 v6, depending on its condition. I belive the decal you're referring to is part of an appearance package option.

A good gauge would be to go on Autotrader and see what they are going for in your area with similar options,mileage, year, etc.

Also do a VIN Lookup here to get all the original options and price: http://researchmaniacs.com/VIN-Numbe...cker/Ford.html

You can find the Tri-bar Pony emblems at several online Mustang parts websites. Easy add on.

One thing to do is look it up in the Kelly Blue Book site to see what the current market value is, that's a good starting point.

http://www.kbb.com/used-cars/

I did a a quick check with the information you provided, and used the Seattle Washington area, didn't add any extra options, put in very good condition, buying from a private party, and it came back with about $7350. But give it a try, I made a lot of assumptions that could be wrong.

Those with factory installed Mustang emblems on the front fenders are Pony Packages.
