I don’t blame you. I’ve always wanted to add a ‘69 to the stable. Since I could never afford a 429 Boss then my choice would be the Mach 1. If I was in a financial situation that would allow it I would be racing you there to pick it up

I had a 69 428CJ Mach 1 and had to sell it when I was younger. Wish I had it still. Not really looking for another project car, but for the right price, and the right car, it could happen. As my Shelby came from Ford as an M code Mach 1, I'd be very familiar with this one.

I can only assume that you're a three car stable now?

From your pictures, you need to buy it if you haven't done so.

Think how cool it'd be to pull the X-crosser to the racetrack with this one.

I've got a guy in Alabama right now that will gladly make my payment for me to secure the car.

Make that 8 and if I'm not mistaken Kelly H has always dreamed of a 69 to add to her collection.

Wise decision. You will have no problem selling it if you decide to do so

9 - ( @Kelly_H will have to be #10 )

But my recently retired wife wouldn't be happy as I'd have to find her a full time job while I fixed it up and played with it!

Yes. They could have sold it much quicker had they been a bit more responsive (which made me apprehensive as well). I just talked to the owner and she said that not everything in the storage goes with the car. There are 5 items that go to another car that was not in the sale. The tires that are shown (I don't want 15 year old tires anyway), supposedly a red door (that I didn't see) and she said 3 other "small" items.

The owner was very nice on the phone, although I think she is a bit misinformed on what she thinks is some tie to NASCAR. She talked about professional work that was done on the car, but to me the paint job is not what I would call professional and the pan on the passengers side is put in place with screws which is certainly not professional.

Is it worth the price, without a doubt I think. She didn't even know until I went and saw the car that the glass was in it (the storage owner let her know it was after showing me the car), I'm still not sure about door glass.

Extremely nice older lady (talkative) who has another 69 that she calls a thoroughbred. I will pick it up as soon as possible. Once I have it, I will show all that comes with it and get better pictures of the paint and etc.

Very jealous! One day I will acquire my own... after I acquire a bigger garage, of course


Calamity Jane 1966 Modified Fastback - Driven semi-daily!
Wrecked and rebuilt even better
289 v8, 4-speed, 3.25 9" rear, goodies and stuff.

See my travel blog here for my adventures: http://mapandamustang.blogspot.com/
Over 50,000 miles of North American roads driven on road trips since 2014. More always in the works - stay tuned!

When I show up at a car show and my car is covered in mud, it's probably because I drove 2000 miles to get there

Allan,

If I had an extra $10K laying around I would buy it and then do a rotisserie restoration on it. Hopefully all the hard to find interior parts are there. It will need everything restored, but if you like doing the work yourself, that is definitely a car worth doing. I would not buy and hire the work out though. It would be cheaper to buy one done if that's the case.

I'm out of the state right now so I won't be able to get the car until the first of next week.

You can see the two original front seat on the left of the first picture. I've been told the bumpers are there, the door glass is there and the grill as well. The small hub caps that go on the rims are there to. The air cleaner base for the shaker has been located. Not sure about things like the rocker trim, but...

I'm thinking most of the car is going to be there.
