Help me DU mustang lovers...
I've got a '68 with the straight 6. It was left torn down to the valves and left to sit. The body other than the vinyl top is in good shape, had 3 new quarter panels before it was parked. Been garaged and covered. Any idea of what that would be worth?

3. No, but I want it.

I don't have anyplace to store it (yet). But, I do want a '68 something. 1968 was a good year. :)

See if your area has a Mustang Trader. Or, find a Hemmings Motor News at the book store. You might get a sense there.

7. I could probably swing the finances, but I have no space.
I would like a project like that to occupy some of my free time, but I think my apartment complex would frown on such activity. Yet another reason I am looking to rent a house with a garage.

I don't know that I could part with something that I had that strong an attachment to. I don't envy you this decision. But, in the end, if someone will take it, and restore it and use it, that's better than it just sitting. Still... :(

9. If I can interject, if you don't *need* the money, keep the car.
That car isn't going to depreciate. Something may well change in the future that allows you the money/space to work on it. If it isn't deteriorating, and it can stay put, let it be for a couple/few years.

4. According to AutoTrader Classics
A 1968 with a 6 cyl, in running shape is selling for between $8-10k.

If there's no rust, and the glass, stripping, tranny, etc are all in good shape, and the engine is complete but not intact, it's gotta be worth at least $3k.

Linky to my research:

10. Here is something I just found on Craigslist.
http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/1065048223.html

It's a runner, with a 302, not a 6. So, flvegan might be in the correct neighborhood as to value.

11. Depends on location...

Heaps that go cheep in California would be worth alot more in the midwest where rust-free metal is so uncommon
