Rusty But Complete: 1968 Ford Mustang
I’m old enough to remember when you could buy a cheap used 60s Mustang coupe, and drive it home. A version with a fancy engine option or Shelby heritage was expensive, but a low spec coupe was one of millions built and nothing special. The classic car market is different today and sellers ask crazy money for basic coupes, but at least you can still get a 68 Mustang for about a thousand bucks. You just have to be willing to put some sweat equity into it. And about a 500 gallons of POR-15. Find this 1968 Ford Mustang offered for $1300 via nevermeta zuckerplace in Elkmont, AL. Tip from Tony.

Yikes! I have a 1968 Mustang and I am not seeing $1300 of parts here, just a strong need for a tetanus shot.
At first glance this just screams “left over parts car”, but then I see all the other mustang parts in it. So now it screams “left over parts car from somebody who did several mustangs”.
You can tell how valuable the parts that they left are by the fact that they harvested the bolts and left the parts the bolts were holding together.
The golden rule of buying older cars, no matter what model you are looking at – “Buy the best car you can afford”.
If this is the best mustang you can afford – you can’t afford it.
