Help The Seller: 1965 Ford Mustang

The original classic Mustang isn’t a difficult car to sell in a place like Southern California, but you’d be surprised at the things that sellers do to get more eyeballs on their ads.  But this next guy gal needs some advice on how to photograph her car — let’s help.  Find this 1965 Ford Mustang 289 V8 offered for $15,750 in Santa Monica, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

First up, unless your posterior is made of 50% or more carnuba wax, please keep off the paint.  Paint is delicate and it might seem like a good idea to slide your daisy dukes all over the hood like Bo or Luke, but DON’T.  Micro scratches in the paint will eventually turn into dullness and you’ll need to repaint this red beauty.  Aside from potential paint damage, you should really wait for random people to pass completely out of frame before taking a picture of the car.

Where do I start?  Is that a skateboard in the back seat?  First up, skateboarding is a crime, particularly if it involves placing the dirty wheels on your white seats.  Speaking of messing up the white seats, if an little bit of that spray-tan transfers off into the seats, I’m guessing the owner is gonna kick this lady back to Ohio or wherever she is from (hot tip; nobody in LA is from LA).

Well…that’s one way to obscure a license plate…but the dirty thumb seems easier to arrange.
