    I got a call from my nephew telling me of some ponies for sell. The old trash man had collected these mustangs over the years while picking up peoples trash. He had passed away and now his family was selling off the collection. I thought I had bought a 1965 289 convertible in incredible condition for $2,000. I told the son to mark it sold and I'll buy it. Thought I's made a killer buy but he called back later telling me his sister had already sold it earlier. Man did I miss a great buy. There were 6 more mustangs I'm looking at for the best buy. Tell me which you think is the best buy.

    The 65 convertible that sold for $2,000 I missed.

    Here is a 1967 coupe he wants $5,000 for but I'm sure he would go $4,000. New paint new interior except for dash. Factory AC car.

    I had called the guy and told him, as a last resort, that IF the deal feel through with the convertible I'd still be interested. I also took a chance and told him I'd be willing to give $4,000 for the convertible just in case he was after more money. I then called the next day to ask about the 66 coupe and first asked him if they had thought about my $4,000 offer and he said they would take $4,000 for the convertible. I told him SOLD!

    I haven't picked up the convertible yet because he works 12 hour shifts but first chance I get I will bring the new project home. I am very excited because I have been after a 65 convertible for many years. My very first car was a 1965 Poppy Red convertible with 289 HiPo 4 speed Rally PAC.

    I am still probably going to also buy the 66 coupe so I'd be interested in those tail lights and any front parts I need.
