From my own experience looking at mustang projects which are basically in same or worse condition as the pictures I would say no.

This is my own, limited experience answer. It feels to me every person with some scrap metal in the back yard think they are sitting on a gold mine.

Will be interesting to hear the experts comments - Jarrod,ZA Perana,Rassie

What was the general feeling of the 59 comments already made for this post? Dont think very positive.

There's a world of pain before that project is gonna fly. The visible rust is only the tip of the Iceberg.

I wouldn't touch that at all.

Firstly there is basically nothing to work with there, secondly I imagine there are no papers, thirdly Id be surprised if there is a VIN tag.

Run away.

Everybody with have a scrap or parts car from 10-15 years ago with not much in it want to sell their stuff at very inflated prices.

This weekend at Piston Ring there was this shell of an Alfa. Desirable ‘57 Sprint 750 series. Verr nice and valuable car if complete. This car has no mechanicals and a lot missing. Later Giulietta 101 models look the same but in reality is actually 2 different cars with not much shared. This car was for sale for R160k. Way too much in my opinion.

Would have liked to see what was the price on the Charger but a friend sent me the pictures when he left PR. 🙄

Relatively speaking there is much more "car" to that Alfa than there is to this Camaro....must say I hope that Alfa does get restored because that could be a very beautiful car once fully restored.

Hell to the no!

Thats a piece of scrap metal. There is very little to nothing left to work with.
