Payment for selling a classic


I am selling my 64 1/2 Mustang and concerned about what type of payment would be best. I know cash is king, but that would be impractical for out of state buyers when we are considering around 17K. Even the bank said a bank check isn’t the best because they could give it to you and turn around and say they lost it to their bank who would cancel the check on there end. So, what’s a person to do?
