So you've given up on ever owning the Mustang of your dreams amid rising values of the good ones.
Why not settle for this one, with it's, homely design and wacky early 70's extended nose. Who cares, it's a running driving mustang with a v8 right? It's kinda like dating one of the lesser Kardashians. And at least it's not a Mustang II. This one has it's issues, but at under 7K, in New England, it's not so bad.
DT -- An early 70s Ford 302 is a perfectly good starter engine for the gearhead in training; you'll have to remove any pesky smog controls, rebuild the top end for proper compression and add a hot cam.
