Sitting for 20 Years? How far do you want to take the restoration? What does it need? If the body and paint and interior are good and just mechanical , maybe 4K to get it running again? But IMO, 4K is nowhere near enough to restore it. You'll be over that in no time to get it back to original factor OEM looking and running. Plus the '76 Mustang not a real Mustang in the community. You'll be restoring it for yourself. Book value is $425 in it's current state and once you fix it up to near showroom condition, it will be worth $4K. So you might want to reconsider unless you really love it.
