1972 mustang questions.

i have a thread in the clubhouse about this but im thinking now maybe this is a better place to put it. anyway, looking at a 72 convertible, with a 351c.

heres what i know about the car so far.

- second owner of the car, first owner was a family friend.
- mid 70's the car was used in 2-3 Marlboro magazine ads.
- original color was Ivy Glow Green.
- always garaged
- painted, new top, and new original interior put in ...1994-95
- floor pan was replaced in 1986
- Radiator, powersteering pump and Master cylinder replaced.
- The car came with Air conditioning , but has not worked since I bought it...it needs a compressor.
- The heater core went about 6-7 years ago...I never fixed becuase I don't drive it in the winter.
The Convertible top is a power top, Car has a am/fm digital cassette deck ...made for classic cars...and a 180 watt power booster.
- Car has a performance sway bar front and rear
- For the most part the car is all original except for the color.

theres one pic in the thread - http://www.offtopicz.com/1972-conver...th-vt5232.html

i have more i can email out (if someone can serioulsly advise me here, send me an email address and ill send out some pics)

seller is asking a little over 12k.

opinions?



edit more info from seller ( i had asked about under the hood and the body):

Everything under is in good condition.
Engine does not need work or replacement ...had tune ups every year until the mechanic told me to stop since I did not put enough mileage to warrant it.
Only 1 problem I noticed was, not driving enough does cause issue....so I start the car every 2-3 weeks and let it run for 45 minutes.
The car has a couple of scratchs, rear quarter something inside the trunk fell over and knocked a the side about an inch long.
Front bumper has a few small scratch's as well....road rocks etc.
Belts and gaskest are fine
Frame is in perfect condition ..no accidents......bumpers have been taken off for paininting so if its off a little...it just needs to be adjusted..I never noticed what you mention.
There has been minor rust in places...when I had it painted ...had new metal welded in.
Its a single exhaust..351 cleveland..2 barrel

It sounds like a nice car, so what do you want from us. What can we tell you?

If it was always garaged why was there rust? Is this you car or somelses car?

Sounds like it needs to be weened back onto the road; and you may have to put a pretty penny into it if you plan on driving it to an increased extent.

Right now, it sounds like a museum show case car.
