As it is not stock, that is hard to say, when a car is modified with other brand of power train it greatly reduces the value, a 305 is a GM engine, a mustang that year if it is equipped with a V8 should have been the 289.

it had a 289 till son went to a car show.....don't know what happened, but i was told 289's weren't available..

i'm just looking to sell it at a reasonable price....has been redone, great cond. tranny has had a job..


Try to find an appraiser your area that specialize in classics, they should be able to give you a good idea on what you might get. I have a boss that had a 65 convertible that had been modified with a newer computer controlled 302 in it, car ran great but when he sold it he only got 4500 bucks for it, could have got more if it was stock. Hope I've helped.

Bull on the "not stock deal" these cars are over 50 years old and motors blow, cranks break, heads, pistons snap--at auctions the "matching" numbers or correct engine is losing ground to a solid engine with more muscle and a clean Engine compartment-- recently a 1965 K-code Coupe with a new Ford Racing 5.0 HO sold for 55,000--might have got 10% more with the weaker K- code--maybe not: Value your car on Hagerty's site and subtract 10% unless T or U motor--then + 10% if V8 done professionnly


I've had 16 mustangs 65-66 still own two+ don't listen to this crup written up top--rate your car on Hagerty site--the car itself and how it maters to the new motor will be the deciding factor--the old fanatics are dying off like the old Engines they use.

Hey nice person? Give me your address so I can mail you a dime... you can go out and buy a character equal to your own--what are you mad at--an MCA Judge who is trying to help??? Well, hope you find Goodwill and Happiness in all walks of life, JC Hayes, Lake Tahoe Nevada


Just trying to point out that most people won't even see this on a post this old, it was started in May of 2014.
