Loaded question I suppose but in terms of Mustangs, more original equals better?

A friend is looking a 1966 notchback 289. The car is pretty clean all around and devoid of the usual resto mods that so many of these cars wear but its hard to determine what to pay. The market seems very flat to say the least. The positives are the car does have a 289 in it, its got a 5 speed box, rather than a 4 speed it would have had, interior is very original.

Where is he market on these, R500k?

This one has all new suspension....money had been spent on suspension and general mechanicals. Test driving next week, my prior experience of 1966 Mustangs was not all that positive....but that was back in the days when you could get one for R30k.

Mustangs are movie cars and draws most people to our ‘hobby’ ‘passion’ call it what you like....

My dream was a 69 Fastback....

But my point is everything has a value, and you can not compare a ‘modded’ drive to a stock car... and upgrades cost

This one is probably going to just be used as a cruiser.

So here's a question. Two years ago a good friend of mine brought in a 66 convertible from the US where he had it converted to RHD. The car is in stunning condition and is full-house with every factory option available. Power roof, floor lighting etc etc. We recently redid all the wiring back to factory spec. He has now emigrated to the UK and is contemplating as to whether he should take the car there, or sell it here in SA. If it stays, what do you reckon she's worth?

Perhaps have a look at Creative Rides and some of the prices they have achieved. I would discount the commission and another 10-20% for the markup.
Personally, I would think a converted RHD car would discount from a collectibility point of view. Of course, as a driver it may be more preferable. But, guys paying good money for classics wants them original.
