Thank you to everyone for creating such a great source of information for the K-Code.

Definitely the best go to for K-Code.

I was also considering to buy a 68 R-Code, however due to the information and support available on this forum I have made my mind up for the K-Code.

It really is great to see so many people keeping track on what's for sale and identifying parts to try and reunite them with their original car.

Thank you

Welcome to the forum. Best of luck with the search for your K code.

I will say that the 68 cars are much easier to document than our K codes, though.

In your search for a K code car, make sure that you have a proper detailed inspection done before any purchase. If you are unfamiliar with these Kars, it is easy to be unaware of the special parts of the body structure, etc. It will be well worth the inspection fee in the end as I have personally witnessed many improperly represented Kars. I have also witnessed a fair number of outright frauds and rebodies. Amazingly, most of the Kars that I have inspected end up not being purchased by the prospective buyer for a number of reasons. Had they been purchased without an inspection, the new owner would have probably found the issues at a later date and really had buyers remorse and a much smaller bank account.

Hi Fred,

Yes all very good points and I have learnt my lesson the hard way before. I have had a few classics before however a mustang was my first classic I bought as a kid and I think that might be why I'm wanting to get a mustang again.

thanks again
