Mustang & Shelby Condition Guide
How to Classify Your Classic
- A Museum Piece
Perfectly detailed throughout. These cars are never driven.
These are "occasional drivers" in perfect condition. They would compete favorably in a national show. They are always garaged, pampered and have desirable factory or dealer installed options. All parts and accessories are in very good and original or restored to original condition.
- Very Good
Sharp and clean, a weekend "driver" that the casual observer would call "excellent". These Mustangs and Shelbys have a very nice paint and interior and show only minor wear throughout. Mechanical components are sound. Most cars seen at neighborhood car shows fall into this category.
- Good to Fair (a "20 footer")
Looks good from a distance but needs needs paint and body work and/or the interior is showing serious wear problems (cracks in the dash pad, upholstery tears, headliner stains, etc.) A pre-purchase inspection will reveal problems with rust, cracked shock towers, etc. Most mechanical components work but are in need of TLC. A high mileage drivetrain make these cars questionable. We don't deal in these kind of project cars because we like happy customers.
