value?

Thats really hard to say. you can look up the "book value"at the kelly blue book site as well as others.there is a 1 to 5 scale for classics.that should givee you a ballpark figure.Then there is if someone wants it bad enough to pay your price then you make out.But if your way out of line with the price then park it and make a planter out of it Dan

It's hard to say without a picture but the bluebook value ranges from 2k-12k. I'd say its worth about $5,500,but it's only worth as much as someone will pay.

Hey Wolfcycle, describe the condition of your car in more detail, for instance is that Cleveland running? - sheetmetal, glass, paint, chrome, electrics etc and of course try to get a pic(s) up to see. It's virtually impossible to put a price on a car without knowing all about it or seeing it.
Reason I'm asking is that I'm looking for a nice 67 or 68 that will hopefully be an XR7 driver. I am NOT interested in a big project - been there done that too many times - but would look at a minimal fixer upper.
I have a deep & long time reverence for these cars as a member of the L-M design team at Ford for the "new Cougar" derivative of the Mustang and was quite involved in the original XR7s. Unfortunately over the years I never owned one, opting for other FoMoCo products and later some Mopars. But now, buyer's remorse has set in and I'm on a cat hunt!

Sure, this is an old post, but what is the "new Cougar" derivative of the Mustang? Are you talking about a Mercury version of the current 05 Mustang? Also, what was your involvement with the original XR7? If so............details!!

Here are three places to look too as well as Ebay.

Oh, by the way. Please tell the LM PR people that when it comes time for the photo shoots make sure the 67 and 68s have straight headlight doors.
Even if you have to stick towels under them!
