Before You Buy: Some Tips
Rarely has there been a car that has so captured the essence and raw, muscular romance of the road than the Mustang. So much so, that there are endless debates on what was the best year and why, which years had the strongest engines, which were the most aesthetically pleasing, and – which hold the most value. Before you buy, you may want to read one or two of these impassioned articles. They have some great tips on what to look for when buying.
If you want the whole pony ready to be driven, ClassicCars.com has a lovingly curated collection, and you can tell by the way the authors write about and describe the cars, that these are much more than vehicles for them. You can sort your choices by year, cost, with many of them offering “OBO” so it’s not set in stone. Even those who don’t fancy themselves as “car people” may find themselves thinking, “hmm, $65K for a fully-restored 1965 Mustang that looks that pretty AND has a new chrome pony assembly with brand new AC that blows hard and ice cold does sound reasonable!”.
Moving on. The point is, it’s a great site, and the listed cars are so detailed that sellers even mention having receipts for every update. If you aren’t already browsing, you’re stronger than we are.
