So is quality. Incorrect parts and restoration defects seem to be at all time highs. ;)

Bob,
Why is it when a car doesn't bring the big bucks as expected, its always the same comments? Or its not a 'good car' at an auction? This Boss looks good to me. Muscle Car prices are down across the board, on all makes. Thats the reality of the current market...

Repo seats ,wrong carpet, repo smog, snorkel, shocks, x-port brace,battery cables, starter relay, radiator and cap, tires and wheels etc.. need I go on? The detail under the hood is amateur at best.  I'm sure the undercarriage is perfect however. ;) I sure hope it's a rust free car so the new owner has something to build on. No mention of original motor etc. either. How much do you think you can pay for a marginal car? Do you have any idea how much difference there is between this car and a legit Div. 1 type restored Boss 429? If the car is rust free as the ad indicated, the new owner did O.K. Call me on any legit THB Boss 429's  in the 400,000 range as I have a home for them.  920-696-3788 I doubt the phone will ring?

OK, thanks , now what makes a car a Div 1 restored car ?
I ask because there seem to be a number of "good cars" for sale and wonder what the cost is to raise their status. And at what point does it become to much of an investment based on the limited market for the "best" cars
Thanks in advance

Division I is Concours (Authenticity) Trailered

Division IV Thoroughbred (Authenticity)
" The Thoroughbred Class is designated for the restored or unrestored cars that are restored or original with the correct era parts. Absolutely no reproduction parts, approved or unapproved, are allowed. This class is designed for the true purist who wants nothing but those hard-to-find original parts. The Thoroughbred Mustang is considered to be the ultimate in restoration or originality"

Ok, Bob. So, how many 'good' cars are there?

Thanks for the info on Division 1 cars
And to polyglas ,with due respect, if the new owner did in fact get a rust free car for under 200k would it be a good candidate for a THB restoration and what would be the value at that point.
Or would something in the 250 to 300 range with more of the correct parts be a better choice for a restoration project.
I am still looking and am weighing all options.
Thanks

A car without the original motor would not be a Thoroughbred candidate.
