Mustang & Shelby Condition Guide

How to Classify Your Classic

  1. A Museum Piece
    Perfectly detailed throughout. These cars are never driven.
  2. Excellent
    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
