How much does it cost to buy a p-51 mustang?

$50,000 - $60,000
In 1945-1950 US Dollars
Thats probably x 310 if youre converting it on today's dollars
The USAAF paid North American Aviation around $51,000 per plane in 1945. Inflation since then would put that cost at approximately $650,000 in today's money.
Though more than 15,000 P-51s were built, only around 150 survive in flyable condition worldwide. A number of these have been converted to a tamdem two-seat cockpit configuration, and are used for commercial "fly the legendary Mustang" enterprises.
Occasionally, one comes up for sale. Asking prices I've seen start at around $1.5 million, but actual sale price data is not readily available.
