    Question 1979 Notch value

    I recently connected with someone of Facebook that has a 1979 2.8 V6 WITH manual set up. He was going to sell me the entire drivetrain for a very reasonable cost once he started his project to V8 it. I've been looking for a 2.8 manual set up for a while.

    Was told last week their plan has changed and they may be looking to sell the car. I do not want to miss the opportunity for the manual set up to upgrade our other car. The rest of the car looks reasonable also.

    Car is around 8-10 hours one way drive from me. Car sat for 20 years. Car looks to have been from the USA and speedo/odometer is in miles. Car is currently in Canada.

    Car had been repainted. The trunk lid has been replaced with a non-79 one.

    What would be a reasonable cost or offer for this car?

    Date - 08-78 = August 1978 build
    GVWR - 3759 lb/1705 kg = gross vehicle weight rating
    Front GAWR - 1978 lb/897 kg = front gross axle weight rating
    Rear GAWR - 1801 lb/816 kg = rear gross axle weight rating
    F0137 = 0137 lbs front accessory reserve load
    R0061 = 0061 lbs rear accessory reserve load
    Exterior Paint Colors - 9D = Polar White
    DSO - 23 = Memphis district sales office
    Body - 66H = Mustang Ghia 2-door sedan (coupe)
    VR - [blank] = no vinyl roof
    Mldg - 73P = Black bodyside molding, Argent inset stripes
    Int Trim - FB = cloth & vinyl seating, low-back front buckets (F), Wedgewood Blue interior trim color (B)
    AC - A = manual air conditioner
    R - [blank] = no factory radio
    S - C = sunroof
    Ax - F = 3.45:1 axle ratio, conventional (non-locking) differential
    Tr - 5 = Tremec SROD 4-speed overdrive manual transmission
    DD = front springs
    MM = rear springs
