I rolled a mustang once when i was 16. It wasnt a cal (94 gt 5.0) but it did destroy that car (naturally)...How bad is the damage? I cant imagine 10 mph doing much but thats a lot of weight for a roof to support

Danny,
We don't have this car in the registry. Do you happen to have a Marti report for it?

...Nothing is further from the truth. Give it time and proper disclosure (Marti report). We're all about finding, documenting and helping out with GT/CS owners in all ways! You're in good hands here! :-)

BTW, Thanks for the photos. That is a very early GT/CS you have there...

A nicely optioned CS: P/S, P/B, A/C, 289.
Can't tell from the photos any body distortions from the rollover. Saw a wrinkle in the rear quarter, but it didn't look too bad. The rooftop & 'A' pillars would be of concern. They can be a tough fix.
Any rust issues? (cowls, frame, torque boxes)
Possibly a viable candidate for the right person @ the right price to restore.
(Danny- $20 for a Marti Report is a worthwhile expenditure. It verifies the pedigree of the car, and adds value to it.)

Can we see some pics and detailed description of the damage. Can we assume the damage is on the side not shown?

Danny,
Please please do not be offended! You have an extremely early GT/CS in my mind. The recessed refectors on the rear quarter are evidence of its early build. It is so cool to see yet another GT/CS that is not in our registry and the early build coupled with the options will help you get the correct value for your car.

I have a car that has all the right stuff, but is not Marti verfied. A Marti is a cheap investment to erase all doubt and ensure you get maximum dollars for your car. Do not take it as an attack on your honesty. To me the photos are proof enough and I could inspect your car and know it is the real deal. Unfortunately most of the people who want your car will only take a Marti report as real proof.

Rob

Neil,
I think the A-pillar is pushed back a little. Check out how the top line of the passenger window gets tight at the front.

Danny,
If you don't want to get a Marti or don't know how I'll be happy to order and pay for it.

Wow! That is an early vin number and numbers matching too! This is a diamond in the rough. I would love to see what options it came with. Looks like a easy fix for someone with the know-how.
