Old Mustang Guys
Needing advice on a 1965 Ford Mustang Convertable. I am looking at a nice class 3 Mustang 289 auto Convertable . Original v8 odometer has turned over and now showing 25k miles body looks straight no rust underneath paint is fair and has a few paint blisters on bottom of rear quarters . Drives good smooth got him down to 19k is this to much? Be a great driver just not show. Any advice would be great thanks.

go to on-line muscle car dealers like "GatewayMotors" and check their prices, then consider what the dealer makes and remove it from the price. these on-line dealers have cars in all kinds of shape so their prices are up and down. I have seen straight 6 1970 Novas (NOT a SS) for $14 grand that had holes in it's floors, and, as much as I love Novas a stock 1970 Nova with a straight 6 and holes in the floor is not a 65 V8 Mustang. another thing to think about is location, prices here in Vt would be different than down south.

Ok, with that said, that was 4 years ago, today the price of that straight 6 Nova would be higher

I know these cars because me, my 2 brothers and my friends had them !!!!

so, do I think that price of $19 grand is good ? well if the car is that nice I would say the price is close

You cant go by these consignment shop "prices"

Gateway Motors and most of the "other" dealers are consignment sellers
the dealer doesnt set the price the car owner does and most of the cars are way overpriced

Gateway basically rents you a space you pay for and they try to sell your car

These dealers get very few really nice cars to sell
A really nice properly priced car sells itself

The cars at these dealers are usually patched up overpriced half junk
then the buyer has to pay sales tax on top of it

the dealers offer financing which helps sell a lot of these junks to people that dont know better

I have been to 3 different Gateway stores and several other dealers
looking at classic cars if I didnt crawl under some of these ""CLASSIC Beautiful"" cars I would have been taken for thousands of $$$

the "good' cars are gone within hours the others sit for months at a time

Here is a couple of places to check for prices but dont pay a lot of attention to auction prices
auction cars you have to inspect in person just cause a car looks the same on the outside doesnt mean any thing

Needing advice on a 1965 Ford Mustang Convertable.
Assuming you joined a online RC helicopter forum to ask advice about buying a '65 Mustang, my comment is you are already in over your head.
You haven't watched nearly enough of Motor Trend TV / Online to know what a good '65 Mustang vs a bad '65 Mustang would look like.

Don't buy it.

Don't get discouraged about asking for advice on this forum.

There are some very smart people that hang out here. Couple of cynics, weirdos and a asshole or two. Still a good pool of knowledge. I think the price is a little high. Work them down until you are comfortable.

**Just walked away from a black 68 GTO because the owner was inflexible on price. Still hurts my heart, but it was a bad deal.

Good luck.

I used to have one but sold it many years ago so hard for me to give an opinion on this particular car. But I do know that if you see some rust on the car there is usually more rust hidden in certain areas of the car.
Here is the link to a site I go to while looking for a muscle car to buy in the near future.
They have one mustang for sale which looks immaculate for under $15K. It's a 68 while I like the styling better than the 65-66 models. This might give you an idea of pricing/condition to compare to.
Best of luck!

GTO
You have no idea. But he wanted show car prices for a runner with decent body and interior. That car should go for $18k. Maybe $20-21k if you just had to have it. He was at $30k. Decent car, but beyond crazy on prices.
