MINT GT/CS for sale

289 C-code GT/CS
VIN #: 8R01C150087

This car has been in my family for 22 years, and we recently put it through a complete, nuts-to-bolts restoration. It is in showroom condition. The engine was completely reconditioned and professionally detailed, and has been driven less than 100 miles since the restoration.

The grill is not original, because my dad thought that it looked cool with the extra trim and the running stallion, but these things are easily removed for the purist. The fog lamps are original, but the pedastals are questionable. These are the same pedestals that have been with the car for as long as we have had it, so whether they were switched out or were originally with the car is uncertain.

The car comes with the ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE, marti report and a certified appraisal. NOTHING on this car was left untouched. The suspension, brakes, transmission, exhaust, complete interior, EVERYTHING was restored to mint condition. It has a/c and a mustang tape deck, to boot.


We are asking the appraised value from 2003 which is $25,800. We put over $30,000 into the restoration, and we have all of the documention to show.

We are located in Clearwater, FL

Re:MINT GT/CS for sale

Is there a running horse emblem in the grille?

Re:MINT GT/CS for sale

I tried to post it to the gallery last night, and I guess it didn't take. I will try again.

The grille does have a running horse...

Your price in the beginning of this thread is somewhat strong even for a fully restored car IMO. I hope you get what you are asking and please let us know what it eventually sells for.

Re:MINT GT/CS for sale

I agree with Jason. It seems very strong for a 289 auto car with a standard interior and incorrect parts. Especially since GT/CS grilles are impossible to find. Hopefully the car looks so good in person that you get your asking price but please don't be surprised if it takes a while to get that price.

Re:MINT GT/CS for sale

I know that some of you are thinking that 25 K for a GT/CS is too "strong". Please consider what it takes to do a "from the ground" up restoration. If you spend 30 K restoring one of these rare beauties, not including a thousand hours or more of labor, I think it should be worth at least that much. If GT/CS price levels don't rise on the heels of the Shelby craze, all GT/CS owners should be concerned. We should all consider
the fact that folks won't take a rust bucket GT/CS on for a restoration project due to a lost cost to benefit ratio.
I think a beautiful, fully restored GT/CS should bring at least $35,000 and hopefully more in the future, but that's just my opinion. :)

Re:MINT GT/CS for sale

not trying to argue but making a statement:

If someone spends 30k on a resto it does not mean they will get 80% of that 30k back when selling. I have a car I spent over 55k on since I bought it and I can guarantee you I would be lucky to get 30-35k for it.

I do agree that spending this much plus the man hours that they SHOULD get this money back.
