It sure does look like it’s worthy of a good price.

I find it really interesting the wording used in advertising. By carefully reading the use of words.

For instance (not picking on this car) the write up says ‘unrestored condition’....does that indicate whether it has had a repaint?.... Or not? A big difference in value to me.
I would assume the use of the word survivor. To me indicates never a repaint.  I guess it’s more transparent to simply state the obvious, and say never repainted or only hood repainted etc

How does everyone else interpret the word ‘unrestored’ or ‘survivor’??

Best bet is to look at the car. Never mind the "fluff" advertising.

Well put.
And would you believe the fluff?? The Russians might’ve tampered with it ;)

Hopefully someone who went to Harrisburg talked to the owner.

It seems the value of these is declining.  A few more $10k drops and I might entertain it.  If that one that Cape Cod Mustang had for sale for $190k a year or so back was a 69 I would've bought it in a heartbeat.  I prefer the four headlights over the side vents.

I looked at the Boss 9 at Cape Cod and drove it, it was only running on 7 cylinders. He just happened to forget about the engine issue when I spoke to him on the phone before the 4 hour drive. After a short diagnosis I found the bad cylinder and decided to pass on the car. Head Gaskets? Bad Valve? Bad Cam? I wanted a driver not another project so glad I passed and found the car I have now.
