IN SEARCH OF MY DREAM CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(1/2) > >>

redraider731:
I am a teacher in North Texas and it as been my dream since i was a little kid to own a 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible.  I do not have much money and I would like one that doesnt need alot of mechanical work done to it for it to run.  If anyone knows of anything PLEASE email me.  Thanks

If you are lucky enough to even find one, and it doesn't need much work, be expecting to pay 25-30 grand for it.  They were selling easily for 20 grand 5 years ago. 
So, you're a teacher, huh?  I retired 3 years ago after 36 years of waving a little white stick as a high school band director.

well ive seen the ones that need a complete restoration go for 10k or more sometimes depending on what code they were etc. They wont come cheap no matter what.

Trust me, the mechanical part is dirt cheap as compared to the body and frame work.  What you want to find is a relatively rust free vert from Texas or at least the southwest.  Keep hitting Craigs list and Ebay daily, and eventually you will run across one. 
Yeah, Wimberley and the hill country of Texas is the finest place to live in the world.  Pretty damn hot here right now though.
