he reckons there is 0 rust

Pics 1 & 2 above the passenger (right hand) side drip rails. Is that spots of rust I can see?

If he's lying about the rust he's lying about everything else.

Has he ever driven a new 69 Mustang to know what they drive like? If not, he's full of shit.

Also it looks rather worn for a car with 10km on the odometer.

Make sure you have someone inspect it before you lay any money down. You may even find someone from this forum local to the car willing to do it if you ask nicely, I advise starting a new thread to alert anyone interested in doing that for you; be sure to throw in a slab or two for their efforts.

Thanks for the replies, I will give it some thought!  :smile01:

just to give you an idea, from a personal experience.

beginning of this year I found on carsales a '65 red mustang coupe with vinyl top. From pictures and description looked amazing and price was $25000, so I decided to go down and inspect in person the car and I found:
- some rust bubbles size 10/20 cent piece on LH door.
- some rust bubbles same size on RH door.
- 2 rust bubbles 4x5cm under an average conditions vinyl top.
- extra amber indicators bolted on the rear panel close to red taillights.
- engine and engine bay were pretty good.
- interiors needed some work.

I asked around quotes for repairing those rust spots, and the cheapest quote I had was around $10,000... For sure I did not buy the car.

This to say that you need to do some maths and speak with a lot of persons (mechanics, panel beaters, etc.) so you can have the full picture of what you are going to spend.

I would suggest, for a good first generation mustang coupe consider a purchasing budget of $26/32k, plus $3k of extras.
You could be lucky and maybe you will find someone rushing to sell and price tag is less than that.
For sure if you want a convertible or fastback you have to add extra $$$...

More experienced persons on this forum can give you better and more precise information.

The instructions said to use WD40 or similar to lubricate this process but I found that was useless and used a couple of drops of engine oil instead but it was still very hard work. I don't want to ever do it again. A quality crimping tool is pretty essential.

Those instructions are bad, one should never use any oil or oil based product on electrical parts.

Geoff, I used a MSD lead kit and silicone lube spray and it was slipperier than a .........

yup...or the silicon gel. it should also be used on the inside of the boot and the outside of the plug if you ever want to get them off again easily.

Is the engine stock or mildly built ir a drag racer?

A 650 single pumper vac secondary is fine for a near stock 390 engine and you might run the optional white secondary spring that you get in a spring kit. A 428 cobra jet had a 735.
