I know that feeling...

You find a great car that you think will help you spend your evenings and weekends doing something productive and then life gets in the way.

There is a simple solution...

Donate it.

Not to a charitable organization that will just sell it for scrap and let you write off a few hundred dollars in taxes, but to a

HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL PROGRAM

This is a dream for High School Autobody classes.

Cars like this are what energize future enthusiasts. There will be a small army of eager students that want to restore this car to good operating condition and to help it find a home.

Will it be a cherry restoration? Probably not, but it will be a very good investment for someone who wants the nostalgia. Especially for Joe Schmoe who doesn't want to pay Barrett Jackson prices.

Parts for 69 Mustangs are plentiful through resources like New Old Stock (NOS- not to be confused with Nitrous) and they often donate materials to vocational programs for this purpose.

At the end of 4 years (which is about what it would take to fully restore the car). You will likely be invited for the "unveiling" and the subsequent auction.

Schools often will auction the car with a fund raising event for a new library, athletic program, or general fund to help keep the vocational program viable.

Just a thought, but wouldn't it be cool to see your car taken care of by young kids just getting into cars?

It might turn out like this -

but at vocational schools the cars once they are donated or given from daelerships they can not be sold or given away cause then it can be a liability ot the school if anything goes wrong. so they would end up crushing it

I would think that the "AS IS" condition would apply here...the buyer is accepting all responsibility, with no warranty or guarantee expressed or implied. Just a guess...

I THIRD the motion to donate the hulk as described above.

^^ I was in a vo-tech program in high-school that BUILT a Shelby Cobra 428 replicar. This was sponsored by a production company in charge of some MAJOR car shows. The way it went down was as a raffle w/ the car being the prize. I'm sure there would be a way to legally raise money by allowing a vo-tech school to restore that mustang.

I agree, Donate it to a vo-tech!
