Question SSP Restoration questions

Hi all, havenít posted in a while but hope everyone is doing ok!

So what is the thought consensus of buying an SSP that can be backed up by a Marti, has Dept tagging, other documentation but is missing itís BUCs and has some title history?

I mean, Iíve seen many folks on this site pick up SSPís are in poor condition and turn them around into good road worthy Mustangs again as well as watching some of you take wrecked or salvaged SSPís and being them back from the dead.

Do missing BUCs and title history have any major impact on the collectibility or future resale values of these Mustangs? For those of you who have restored an SSP to ďdriver qualityĒ or even ďshowroom newĒ, if that vehicle had title history do you find that itís frowned upon?

I know some Mustang Enthusiasts donít care about title history and will take a Mustang in poor condition and bring life into it. Then thereís the others that think any type of title history is blasphemy and wonít touch the car...

Thoughts?

By "title history", are you talking salvage title or something else? Many people shy away from salvage cars, so yes it can affect value. But a car that is properly restored will still bring the highest money. So if this one fits your needs for the right price, then go for it!

Hi Bill,

Yes, salvage or even theft/stolen, which depending on Ins Carrier and State DMV, by definition salvage could cover theft/stolen recovery as well..

I mean, not all salvage vehicles are like ďtotal lossesĒ and wrecked beyond fixable. Some could be salvaged for accident damage, but repairable damages that donít affect structural integrity of the vehicle.

If itís missing itís buck tags but is a verified SSP, I donít believe thereís any loss of value.

To me, availability of the Marti Report To confirm an SSP makes the buck tags less important.
