Mach I

Come on guys, didn't you notice that it comes with California black plates? That adds maybe $10K to the value. LOL.

I'm gonna have to dig into this a bit. A 69 mach1 that only needs paint? You don't see that much anymore. Dunno about the $24k, but it's not a parts car, either.

Some faded paint and surface rust on the front, minor.

If all original and complete, as noted, not an everyday find...

At least they didn't slap on a cheap resale-red paint job.

So he's asking high, ya never know... obviously not in a rush to sell so why give it away?

OK, a 69 mach1 with 351 2V and virtually no rust, the Rim-Blow steering wheel is in the car and not cracked. It does need a small door rust spot fixed, and new seat upholstery. The mouldy appearance of the car is the original factory primer showing through where weathering has ripped off the Black Jade. That practically proves this is original paint, because original 60's Ford paint was known for that. Looks to me like somebody could have this thing ready for cruise night just by working weekends on it this winter, easy. He also said "cash talks". Betcha could get it for under $20k if you showed up with a roll of Benjamins.

There is a crack in the wheel besides the crack the guy is smoking. Given only the pics and the sellers description, It may be a 12k car on a good day.

Looks more like faded paint, and even if it is rust, it appears to just be surface rust and not the cancer. You're right about the 242 however, that's prolly to make up for the "obo".

I think there should be a section on this forum for cars that people think are overpriced, or ugly, or just cars that people want to make fun of.

Personally it's one of the biggest irritations of reading this forum. People should be able to try and sell their cars for whatever they want, they should be able to fix their cars up however they want.
