Hey Barney.
Whats the market like in the USofA at the moment.
Seems like there is finally some love for the old 6 cylinder cars.
As for the V8"s they are starting to get reasonable prices in the $15k plus bracket.
Whats a fastback 65/66 worth there now?
Unrelated but please wear a mask when replying.  :bag:

There is zero "love" for the gutless wonders, however, since that is the majority of what is left, it is pretty much buy a 6 cylinder or never own a mustang unless you are in the forbes top 500.

there are now far fewer mustangs and far more people looking for them, so the good deal train left the station years, and years ago.

a 5/6 v8 fastback with a nice body and average paint and interior in driveable condition etc, is around 25k usd...if you can find one.

What date is that photo? All '65s. Is that a stock build-up at the factory prior to the April 17 launch?
Because after that they were flying out the door as fast as Ford could build them.

PS. what are the cars at the very back against the hedge? Can't quite make them out.

Quite a few vert's in there as well..., you're right though, not a fast back to be seen.

What date was the photo taken though?

It was initially introduced on April 17, 1964, as a hardtop and convertible with the fastback version put on sale in August 1964.

There's a few good months after the coupes & verts were released with no fastbacks in the lots, salesyards, showrooms, etc.

Hi, on ebay $65,000, restored! Pretty good price, you can buy one to be restored for $30,000, and double that, why would you bother to do it yourself?
Cheers Phil.

 A closer look and l think l see 3, back left 8 rows in, one looks black?
 Probably makes sense in coupe/fastback ratios...,

Good one. There may also be another:  top right in front of the coupe with black vinyl roof, not sure it's a Mustang but the roof is shorter than the coupes and not as horizontal .. if I'm seeing things correctly.

Yep, you're right, surely no more, Galaxies at the back would be the bosses parking?

Must admit when i was looking in Melbourne about 4 years ago for mine, i came across at least 3 of which where converted coupes, and the sellers apparently had
no idea that this was the case. :nopity: :bolt:

Hmmm my 1966 V8 63B fastback has a T code 65 C data plate.
Guess it only matters if you decode the numbers.
