What's the going rate these days for a 65 K code coupe that's running but needs a trunk floor (all other metal is good), paint job, and interior?

In that condition you would get away with about 6 - 8k , just my opinion

Neal,
K code coupes are few and far between. If you can pick it up for a relatively good price, go for it. Make sure that the engine is the original and is all there. Epperstang or Kcode should be able to give you a lot more details on the "K" codes.

One of Erin's friends has the car. He knows considerably more about cars than I do. However, his neighbors have complained and the county has said he has to get rid of most of his cars (he has so many he doesn't even know how many he's got anymore). Even if it's not a K code, we'll most likely be giving her a new home. He said he has to double check the VIN - my brother and I are going to go look at the car today. He said he is sure it's a dual exhaust, 4 speed, 9" rear car. I'm not even going to tell you asking price before I go look at this thing and hopefully snatch it up. Forgive my ignorance, but where is the VIN located on a 65? Us later guys have it easy with the VIN right up by the windshield.

Neal,
The vin # is stamped on the drivers side inner fender panel on the flat area next to the shock tower. It is also on the data plate located on the drivers side door just below catch mechanism.
Take a look at the heads. There should be a nice round dimple with a small circle with the numbers 19, 20 or 21 in the circle. These are HiPo heads. Also the dampner should be about an 1"1/4 in thickness. With the exhaust, look to see if the rear exhaust hangers are threaded vice tack welded. Good luck.

Well, we weren't able to go look today. We're going Thursday. Just so I know (in case it's not a K code), what would an A code in the same described condition go for?

6 to 8k for a complete unmolested K-code coupe needing what mentioned would be a very good deal. The K-code is one of the few Mustangs that actually have matching numbers as the vehicle VIN was also stamped into the front passengers side of engine block about one inch above the pan and on the bottom front of the toploader transmissions case. Check for as many of the original unique K specific parts as possible (carb, distributor, exhaust manifolds, fan, damper, rear end etc.) as chasing these down can be both time consuming and expensive

Same question different car.
A friend at work has a black 66 K-code fastback
original HIPO engine etc...
It also has the pony interior
but not a GT and no disc brakes.
It has the C-4 tranny with the factory performance valve body ( i think they call it a green dot tranny)
The owner has let it go somewhat, its all there but some body panels are rusting. He installed a fuel cell as well after the tank rusted out. Last time I knew he was driving it to work...

He was thinking of asking 9k for it, he knows what it is but seems to refuse to restore it. is 9k about right?

All I can tell you is: BUY IT! That is a more than reasonable price for a K code fastback.

Take it for 9K , K-code fastbacks are one of the most desirable mustangs out there.
