Every car has an exact market value. Exactly what you can get someone to pay you for it. no more no less. In my opinion book values and appraisals aren't worth the paper the're written on. In your case if the car doesn't have a 390GT or 428, and XL interior, with no title and rusty; What's scrap steel worth?

Also, I'm pretty sure 1964 Thunderbolts were the last Ford lightweights produced.

well kitcar' i do belive that if you found a 68 hemi dart not saying that you will but if you did and she a little rusty and was minus the 426 and didnt have numbers or a title you would acwire it to just to say you owned one and tell every wild eyed kid and big kid that stopped by you house that it isnt forsale b/c you plan on restoreing one day probaly when you finish that ragtop boss 429

59;

a '66 GTA without XL interior or big block is not rare, or valuable. I am a Ford fan all the way but I can buy a 67 GTA 390 with a good body for $700 Cdn with bench and column shift, and a title. The only thing rare about a plain GTA is the hood and trunk trim. When a car is too expensive to restore, it is better left for car heaven. Sorry, wouldn't buy the Hemi carcass either. I'm not out for history and numbers. I know it adds real value but not for me. I love GenII trans ams, but pulls the phoenix off the hood, paint it black, limo tint the glass, 17" ARs. That's my type of TA. I'm not a big fan of Mustangs, either. Don't hate em, just too many around. Stick that Boss in a 69 or 70 Cyclone GT and I'll give you my right arm. Here I go, on & on.

In my personal opinion just about any car is worth saving. To many of them have gone to the crusher. We don’t have a wealth of old iron around here so if I can buy it for a reasonable price I can put it on the back burner and slowly save it over the years.

Hey guys

I'm the last guy to send a car to the crusher, but, come on. This car has no title, no drive train mentioned, never was streetable, and is rusted out and ragged. I've got a 69 MK III right now that I bought to customize. It looked good, but after I dug the bondo out 1/4s, trunk, doors, and fenders and ground through the frame rot, I called it quits. Some cars are too far gone!

Now if this GTA has most of the sheet metal left, and you,re handy @ body work; Fine. But if you have to look @ the tail lights to see it's a Comet, cause the 1/4s r FE 02 dust on the ground, then maybe its cheaper to make a clone from an old 500. C'mon, guys, appearance wise all the GTA had over a 500 was the hood trim. They never were in the same league as a hemi anything. I had a 66 500XL, and I loved it till I crashed it, but buying skeletons,is not a worthwhile hobby.

Some people think the only way to save/build a car is to choose one that will have value later. Some (myself included) don't care if the resale value or rarity is there. The truck I am building will only sell for a fraction of what I put into it. I realize that a southern truck would have been much better, but I didn't have the bucks. I don't plan on selling it later, but if I do, I'll swap out the drive train first. The way I see it is I will pay far less for it than a new truck and have fun in the process. Build what you want.
