Default Value of a 69 Mach 1

A mostly original 1969 Mustang Mach One: 351 two barrel, auto trans, 114000 miles, power steering, power brakes, A/C, the interior is in nice shape for its age. Car is a decent daily driver or a good base for a restoration.

This car has the Marti report and appears to be legit. It will need frame rails, floors and basically the entire underneath redone.

In your opinion what is the value of this car? The owner is asking $5500.

It's impossible to make a judgement on the car. Basically it boils down to, after you have poured over the vehicle and discovered ALL the warts that are hidden, what your willing to pay.

Hard to say without seeing detailed pictures or inspecting it in person. $5500 could be a smoking deal.

I would imagine a Mach I in Panama is a very rare sight. Values in the US or Canada likely don't apply. Having said that $5,500 is likely a little high considering the amount of work necessary.

After importing all the parts necessary to restore the car you will have quite a chunk of change invested in it.

Good luck

One just sold in my area for $30k+ on a 5 year old restoration.

You have to figure out how much it will cost to bring it back and then see if it the end result would be worth it.

Doesnt sound like a bad price to me. Most of the time a 69 Mach for that price is a undriveable hulk. Hard to tell without pictures but it doesnt sound like a bad deal to me.

I just missed one for $2800 around me STEAL!

I dont know how many of you are watching Barret Jackson tonight but it seems that the prices are on the low side. Camaro's seem particularly low. Stangs a bit better off. A 351 mach low option went for 30 and change.

Is it a good deal? Depends on one thing - are you going to do the body/paint yourself OR are you going to farm it out? If you are going to farm it out then IMO he could GIVE you the car and it will still be a bad deal.

A nice (no needs) low-option Mach will sell in the $25-30K range. You are going to have $15K in the body/paint alone and you still have the entire rest of the car to do. Get an NPD catalog and start adding up parts. You'll get to $15K in a hurry.

It just does not pay to bring a not very rare car in that condition back from the dead. Only reason to do this car is if you really want to do it.

LOL, if every restoration project hinged upon it's fiscal sanity, I'd be flipping burgers...

But they're right, you can buy a done-car for less than you'll tie-up in this proposed car. BUT.....

A car that you do yourself, is a car that you know is done right, that you know what was replaced and repaired and rebuilt, that you know every square inch of, no mysteries or wondering whether all of the guts and internals were ignored and covered in a fresh coat of paint.

A car that you buy that somebody else "restored", is ALWAYS a gamble, unless you have the opportunity to do some serious first-hand due-diligence and test-driving.

Given your location, buying a restored car could be a dicey gamble unless you're willing to travel and spend some time in the states.

So if you want a project, and want to have fun with it, and want the satisfaction of having administrated the restoration yourself, I can't imaging that $5K is a bad deal for a running, driving and all-there car. Just make sure it's not rotted beyond your initial assessment.

If I found a driver for that price, I'd jump on it.

I bought my driver '69 Mach 1 for $2500 a couple of years ago. It needs 1/4 panels, a door skin, and some trunk floor repair. I feel I got a very good deal on it, but I do ALL of my own work. Just wanted to give you a comparison.
