Help The Seller: 1965 Ford Mustang

The original classic Mustang isn't a difficult car to sell in a place like Southern California, but you'd be surprised at the things that sellers do to get more eyeballs on their ads.  But this next guy gal needs some advice on how to photograph her car -- let's help.  Find this 1965 Ford Mustang 289 V8 offered for $15,750 in Santa Monica, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!



First up, unless your posterior is made of 50% or more carnuba wax, please keep off the paint.  Paint is delicate and it might seem like a good idea to slide your daisy dukes all over the hood like Bo or Luke, but DON'T.  Micro scratches in the paint will eventually turn into dullness and you'll need to repaint this red beauty.  Aside from potential paint damage, you should really wait for random people to pass completely out of frame before taking a picture of the car.



Where do I start?  Is that a skateboard in the back seat?  First up, skateboarding is a crime, particularly if it involves placing the dirty wheels on your white seats.  Speaking of messing up the white seats, if an little bit of that spray-tan transfers off into the seats, I'm guessing the owner is gonna kick this lady back to Ohio or wherever she is from (hot tip; nobody in LA is from LA).


Well...that's one way to obscure a license plate...but the dirty thumb seems easier to arrange. tips@dailyturismo.com

  3. Take your car and aspiring actress/model girlfriend to the park and shoot pictures till you run the battery down, then go home recharge the battery and go to the park and shoot a few nice pics of just the car and submit those to Craig's list.

  8. I'm with FTB about the ad. However, anyone who tries to sell a car online but doesn't think to pop the hood and take a photo of the engine probably never thought to pop the hood and practice decent maintenance when they owned the car.

    My dad says never buy a car without a front bumper (long story involving a TR-4). I say never trust a Craigslist car ad with no engine shot.

  9. I was more disturbed by the plain Galaxie-style hubcaps than the distraction of his girlfriend's costume changes. I'm usually like.. "come on, move over so I can see the .."

  11. When you're trying to sell Grandmas' Mustang with a slushbox and white interior you better throw something into the deal if you're gonna move the iron. I wonder if THEY know.
