Before you send me an email asking me for my "best price, bottom-line or asking price" let me just make a suggestion based on 36 years of buying and selling experiences. Deals are made through conversations, not texting, not emailing or conversations without even knowing who or what you are talking to, they happen throughpersonal contact. I want my my clients to know who they are trying to make a deal with. I want to know their real intent to buy also. This equation does not exist with "What's your best price?" and no personal contact. I have gone to great lengths to find this incredible vehicle, make sure it's the best it can be for you and present it in a way that no other seller does online. I do that so we can talk, make a clear deal, fair for both sides and watch a happy buyer enjoy their new ride. If you just don't have the gumption to make contact and you just want an idea of price, look at what the market values posted above say, they are fairly accurate on AVERAGE vehicles across the US. If you think this vehicle is average, above or below, bid accordingly or. . . pick up the phone and have a pleasant conversation with a real enthusiast that can make your deal on the spot. Keeping it real.

Every so often, I attend a specialty auction where I find a gem like this 1966 Mustang Convertible. Most of the time, when I review the list of cars available, I will get there and not be very impressed with what I find. That was NOT the case with this classic Pony. Almost instantly I knew I was going to own this beauty. First, I loved the color combination. Guardsmen Blue Metallic with the Light Parchment Convertible Top and Interior, a stunning combination to say the least. The second thing that made me really excited was seeing the quality of the restoration. The paint finish was outstanding, obviously pretty fresh. The interior at a glance looked brand new, then opening the engine bay and wow, it was like looking at factory fresh. The next thing I did was drop to the pavement to see if it was as nice underneath as it was up top...and there was no surprises there...gorgeous underneath and obviously fully restored and refinished. It became quickly clear that this car was not just a refurbishing, but a full on professional restoration. A car that was completely disassembled and fully rebuilt from the bottom to the top. New seals, rubber, bushings, everything was done and done very right. The next step, start the car and listen to it run....Again, no question, you could hardly even hear the engine it purred to perfection. Because it was an auction, I wasn't able to test drive the car but I was able to shift it into gears, rev up the engine and test everything electrical before I bought the car. Buying the car was not going to be a question as long as I knew I could make a fair margin selling it. Well, it was a battle, but I won the car and almost immediately pulled it out of the auction and drove it 45 miles back to my shop with the top down and the wind in my hair.
Satisfied! Well that was an understatement. The entire drive home I marveled at the quality of the drivability of the car. Tight steering, accurate braking, great acceleration, smooth ride quality, it was just a beautiful drive home that day without a hesitation and without question as to the high quality of the build. That is when it all gets exciting to me because I know my buyers will be incredibly pleased when they get to own this car.
Read, view and pour over hundreds of pictures. We don't hide anything and we have years of satisfied clients as you can see in our feedback. This is not an average restoration or build, it is a high quality, high end professionally modified road ready Mustang Convertible. The quality of this build can be seen up close and appreciated and we show that in our pictures, details and disclosure so you can feel confident in making an offer that can buy this car. If you want this car like I did when I saw it, then make it rain $100s and watch how excited I get to see you win and own this car. That is what I am about. People ask me all the time, "have you ever wanted to keep one?" Of course I have, like this one, but I love selling dreams and seeing people reach them. I get them, drive them, show them, meet great new friends with them and get to have all the beautiful models pose with them for a permanent record of my fabulous collection of thousands of cars over the last 14 years. You get to do the same if you want...or just sit there and wait until someone else calls me and makes an offer that buys your dream. Nah! Pick up the phone to make your deal with me, you won't get figures any other way unless you bid and hit the reserve. Good Luck and talk to you soon.

A note from the owner.
I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I’ve been in business, have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I’ve discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the bidder, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.
With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner and Chris, owner of A-Best Auto Repair in Henderson, Nevada has my back. He and his crew can fix anything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name, no job is too big and no small detail unimportant. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows my writer to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless he thinks it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.
After the vehicle is fully sorted it arrives at our facility where it encounters the suspicious eye of Tom, my writer that creates the presentations you see on eBay. He believes absolutely nothing I or anyone else tells him about the car as he combs over every inch, researches its history and documents originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I’ve converted a paint booth, especially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.
Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, we film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital, laser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? We do.
No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase, that my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.
If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger, I will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a “used car dealer.”
Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.
If you hit the reserve, the decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.
