Thinking of selling my '65 K fastback. Have a couple folks that I mentioned it to privately, but now that I've made the big step to actually consider selling, thought I would post up here to gauge interest. I am simply looking to get my investment back out of it. Paid $24k for it as a running/driving car about 2 years ago. Have bought approximately $10-12k worth of parts, some of them Shelby upgrades.
The car came out of Oklahoma a while back, was in a personal collection. It's originally caspian blue with medium blue std. interior. It was built in Jan '65 at DAP, so too early to be a GT or have deluxe interior. It is an original Arvinode exhaust K car. The drive train is completely original with matching VIN stamped block and trans. It has never been wrecked or rusted out, has all original sheet metal except for the front/rear valences, which I have Ford replacements. The car is currently disassembled down to a rolling shell as I was not happy with the paint. It was probably a 10 footer before, could have used some touch-up here and there to make presentable, but I would rather just give it a complete job. My plans were to knock the suspension off, put it on a rotisserie and do the top/bottom. I have most everything to put it back together. Mechanically, the car was in great shape before tear-down, so shouldn't need a motor overhaul or anything like that. It originally had disc brakes, which I have, it also had an 8k rally-pac and I was going to install a console in it. The plans were to make it a nice street-able car, not a show queen.
Like I mentioned, just looking to get back the $$ I put into it, which is around $35k. Probably will seem high and I understand that, but I also do not have to sell it either. If anyone is seriously interested, send me an e-mail using the E-mail User function in my hpmx profile. I'm not going to advertise this anywhere else.
