1969 Mach 1

I'm looking at a '69 Mach 1 M code. It has a new paint job (from 2004) that is not the best in the world. I've seen the car and it needs a bunch of work, notably the interior. The paint job is ~7 on the scale of 1-10. It's a 351W with an automatic FMX. The engine last ran in 2004.

It's a Mach 1. Give me a ball park.They're asking 10k, I'm thinking 7k.

Thoughts,

Allen

Pics?? Is it fairly solid? If so I’d start around $7000 but it probably is worth the $10,000

It depends on the condition of the body structure. I paid $10K for my 70 Mach 1, 302 and FMX not original to the car. The shell was mostly rust free with some front end damage. I probably paid a bit too much, but the car was what I was looking for. Post some pics so we can see what you are looking at. Pics tell so much more than a written description.

Here are some of the pictures I took. The third picture is the most concerning as you can see that a floor panel is just screwed in place. Looks to be a new panel (from when the work was done) and was never painted thus the rust on it.

The front grill is not on the car and I didn't see it. The seat is not original but I think the originals are there. There's a hole for a hood tach and I didn't see one anywhere.

I didn't take a full body shot of the car, but again it appears straight and the paint is probably a 7 out of 10.

There are parts around the car but I didn't take a full inventory to know whats there and whats not.

That floor panel is questionable which has me questioning the car...

I'm still working on my two 66's but the wife LOVES the 69 fastbacks. She's all about it...

The 69 fastbacks are getting harder to find as most prefer the 4 headlight configuration vs a 70 model. With the exception of the floors, the car looks to be in better condition than my 70 Mach 1 I bought in 2016. Since the wife likes the 69 fastbacks, if you have the cash, snag it! You can do a full floor replacement and take care of the floor issues. Then build it back up and make a driver out of it.

Time to start looking for a Ford hood tach haha! Maybe plug the hole with a rubber grommet til you do. That engine has probably been rode hard so you can look forward to doing EVERYTHING on the car, but I know you can handle it. If it isn't hiding rust someplace, I wouldn't be upset about getting it for 9 or so, but I would start maybe 7500 so I didn't slap them in the face. No rust, straight and complete? That's what we drive and keep in Alabama.

Looks like a nice project car for the price. Hopefully, there are many parts sitting there that will fill in what is missing on the car.

$7k to $10k for a 69 Mach with decent paint is a gift. Take a look at what rotted to death $hitbox plain sportsroof shells go for and ask yourself the question again. Interior is the easiest part of any restoration. From the few pics posted, it looks like this car just needs time and some parts.

Nothing worthwhile is ever quick, cheap or easy, those that can't do, complain

I think if you can get it for $10,000 or less that is a good deal and I would snag it up

There were parts laying around everywhere but I couldn't get a good inventory of what all was in the boxes.

For $10k I might even be tempted to take on another project. Let us know if you turn it down, we might start a bidding war!

I need to clarify that a bit. The car was painted in 2004 and has been in storage ever since. The restoration company went out of business and the owners had relocated to Alaska at the time.

So the paint has not been in the sun or the elements...

Allen, I would have already brought my trailer to load it up if I were you. That’s a great deal
