    Newbie Advice Needed

    Hi everyone,
    I'm mulling over a first 60s Mustang purchase and could do with some advice. Although I'm based in the UK, I'm currently in North America and have been offered this 67 Coupe and I'm wondering about shipping it home. I'm aware it's not an original V8 but could anyone help me out with some questions? I've copied the pics and details I have so far below.

    1. Is there anything from the description or photos that you think I should be looking at, asking about? Is there anything that jumps out of interest or concern?
    2. From the very brief description and photos can anyone give a really rough UK value?


    Thanks!

    Chassis 7R01T143154
    Mileage 47000miles

    This 1967 Ford Mustang Coupe was manufactured at the San Jose, California Ford plant and acquired about seven years ago. It is finished in a non-original metallic blue with white striping and features a black vinyl interior in addition to 17″ American Racing wheels. The car was originally a T-Code example powered by a 200ci inline-six, though a 289ci V8 has been installed and is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. Front disc brakes have also been added along with an aftermarket radio and speakers. A recent inspection and service report is included in the sale, and the car is now offered with a clean British Columbia title in the seller's name.
    In April of 2018, a new idler arm, new clutch pedal support, actuator rod, clutch rod bushing, brake light switch, and power steering repair - approximately $2,700 was spent, and a Service Receipt and Inspection Report was done and is available.
    Period service manuals are included in the sale along with a new matching passenger-side mirror, an additional set of two new mirrors, two side chrome seat trim pieces, a set of jumper cables, original steering wheel, and various rubber mouldings.

    My gut tells me that's a paint job and some wheels, but then you've not told us how much it is..?

    Biggest red flag is the passenger inner wing, but then there's plenty of other things in the pics that shout potential rust issues, lack of detail (and care), etc.

    Price is wholly dependent upon condition, so hard to say.

    Thanks, that seems remarkably cheap for a fairly up together car or am I missing something?

    It didn't meet reserve so that's not the price. More importantly, on a site that consistently garners higher prices than the norm for cars this car was only bid to a low figure.

    To be blunt it looks like a polished turd.

    T code convertible change to c code

    Any comments appreciated. I have been looking at a 65 convertible which has had extensive work and to be fair looks like may of even have new shell as no rust anywhere, Whilst I want this to enjoy is the fact that it was originally a 6 cylinder a big no from a price/ investment perspective.

    Also it has larger radiator but apparently still needs additional cooling is fitting an electric fan best option.

    I'd check that car for a tick on the rear left bank and see if white smoke comes out as could be the thermostat

    From the photos I think you'll be spending more than a few thousand to get that to an acceptable standard.


    I think 66 coop hit the nail squarely on the head.
