  • Would 30K get me a decent fastback?

    So have saved about 30K and am seriously pondering a classic fastback 64-69

    Would this be enough for a decent one or am I dreaming? I can't justify (yet) going upto 40K as the boss would kill me :D

    I am so out of touch with classic prices to be honest and I honestly dont now what is a lemon or a decent one.

    Cheers for any advice.

      I recently sold a 65 FB for 32K, really nice car.

      It all depends on what you want for your 30K.

      There are a few on this forum that sell cars ��

          Hello Kaelic.

          I have a 65 Fastback I took in trade for a pickup I had in stock..

          Gent had it 12 years and uograded a number of things.
          V8
          Auto
          Four wheel Wilwood disk brakes
          Polished torque thrust wheels and low profile tires
          Steeroids steering
          Car sounds great and drives nice.

          Nice solid car

          I think we could do something at your budget if you like the car

          Door rust was only on lower exterior of doors and repaired with correct Mustsng door skins and repainted.

              Just an update guys

              Have been pondering if it's more sensible to get a coupe as they are well within my budget and if anything needs doing I wont be left crying (20k as opposed to 30k etc..)

              In particular I have been looking at the below, I know its a GT "recreation" but I think it looks pretty smart and quite sorted, I just need someone to give me an honest opinion.

              I know Peter above has a great reputation and I am sorely tempted by his gold fastback, but my inner Scott is wanting to put 10k away "just incase" etc...

                I'd pop up to see peter and Ron they have coupes and fastbacks in stock and Peters normally more than happy to show you around without any sales pressure.

                I'd recommend keeping some money back as I had mine for 6 months then the engine required a full rebuild so keeping some money in the bank isn't a bad idea

                  That car is missing the rear window trim.

                      This thread has got me thinking about Mustang ownership again....

                      Peter - sounds like you might be a good first port of call :)

                      This fastback didn't sell recently but given the fact it was at the NEC then I'm a bit surprised given it's price point is where the OP was looking -http://www.silverstoneauctions.com/1965-ford-mustang-fastback--code-63a-

                      Looks to have had money spent on it, and lack of numbers matching not an issue I'd have thought?

                          The NEC fastback was a disaster. I had photos and the floors were dreadful.
                          Sub 20k cwr IMHO

                            The floor was full of holes. The rear subframe had a rip in it. The fit/finish of the panels was terrible i.e. you'd never align the trunk lid without re-fitting the tail panels kind of bad. The chrome on the tail lights was heavily pitted....I could go on.

                            It's an ex-6 cylinder car with the wrong engine and a poor body with a shiny paint job trying to mask a world of issues.

                            All in my opinion of course ;-)

                              Never considered Colorado a dry state, according to the Auction blurb.
                              I've been there many times, and the amount of rusted out vehicles due to the weather (Rain / Snow / Grit / Salt) was very high.

                              Losing respect for these auction companies and their inaccurate descriptions.
