Another Mustang-Beginnings project on Ebay
« on: April 21, 2019, 09:29:02 pm »
Looks like a highly optioned and highly priced Wimbledon White 1970 project from Mustag Beginnings in Marina, CA....Buy-It-Now for $25K...And i bet the reserve isn't too far below that. I've watched this guy try and sell some BOSS cars over the years and he continually demands unrealistically high prices for what you're ultimately getting. Its a shame...

Those sellers are known for peddling overpriced rust bucket 'projects'. Buyer beware…it will cost you MORE to fix them than to buy a good complete running car.
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 6 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase headed, intake mounted with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!

I printed out BOSS 302s that were for sale at Mustang Beginnings on Nov. 9, 2005 and the photo of the white car that is posted for sale currently on eBay is the same!

FACT! I seem to check their website about once a year - pictures have been the same since at least 2008.

I made repeated attempts to contact MustangBeginnings for a friend of mine that wanted a particular car that was and still is there BTW. Never heard back found him a better car with someone that would actually sell it to him.

He responded to my emails back in 2010-11. He seemed to only want to sell a car if you bought the restoration parts it would need from him as well. He was also trying to pressure me into having his people do all the work on it too. At no discounted price either... Lame...

GTABERT,

I have the best wife in the world. She bought me one last year for my birthday, it was a surprise party and at the end she had a friend drive up with it and hand me the keys. Boy was I surprised.

I found the car months earlier, but held off on buying it. She knew I really wanted it and sneakily bought it about 3 weeks before the party and stored at a friends garage.

Every man needs a wife that will buy him a B2 for their birthday.

The $25K reserve has been removed and someone with a zero bid history has submitted a $17K offer:

Your going to spend more than what its worth and years of work, the bidder should just buy a better car.

That is awesome, I believe all of our wife's are special, they let us enjoy our hobby, owning these relics that cost both time and money! My wife has never complained and I've been through many a car. God blessed us with this hobby and good wives, keeps us out of trouble!

I wish someone with bundles of patience and some deep pockets could scoop it up...Take the journey and spend the time to restore it...then drive it up to that guys shop and rub it in his face... "Sorry pal, but this one didn't waste away in your lot..."

His web page lists several as "sold."  Most of the cars he has are from east coast or mid west, which would explain all the rust.

Funny thing, last year they listed a '70 Cougar body that they had parted out.  They didn't realize it was actually an Eliminator until a few people told them.  They took the shock tower reinforcements off the car, but didn't bother to take the camera case dash panel out.

My car came from Mustang Beginnings.  I think I got a fair deal and he helped me with shipping.  Asked him to add a fold down seat as part of the deal. I wanted the a yellow BOSS with the options listed.

Ended up to be the very same BOSS I saw in 1969 that started my love affair with BOSS 302's.

The owner (Mike Rettinger) has got to be up in age by now.
