Title: WIW 1969 Mach 1
Post by: 1BADFISH™ on April 30, 2016 - 10:09:31 am
Hey Guys, I know this isn't a Mopar but is there anyone who knows these cars good enough to have a look at some pics and give me a ballpark what it may be worth?

My Dad's friend has owned it for over 30 years, drives it every summer and keeps it stored inside. He asked me the other day if I would be interested in it.

Info and photos here

Thanks!  :2thumbs:

            This can give you an idea.  Is it 2V or 4V motor ?  Factory 4 speed ?   http://www.collectorcarmarket.com/collector-car/prices/1969-ford-mustang-mach_1-value.html (http://www.collectorcarmarket.com/collector-car/prices/1969-ford-mustang-mach_1-value.html)

Its factory M code 4V Mach 1 with factory 4spd and 3.25:1 trac loc according to the tag on the door.

Thanks I'll check out that link!

I might know a little about this one. How many miles are on that Mach 1?

The Shifter knob is incorrect, the lower door panels need attention. How are the quarters?

The interior is in good shape, the undercarriage looks like there is minimal rust but you will never know until sandblasting is done.

My guess is somewhere around 22-30k based on how much work you will need to do to that one. M code with 4 speed is nice. You can put the correct stripes on now as they reproduce them. Indian fire red paint is ok looking but you will probably look at a repaint somewhat soon.

Not sure on the miles, interior is great shape and the only rust spot visible is on the lower doors. Fenders and quarters were replaced in '82 when the car was last painted. Other then a small patch in the floor and trunk when it was painted there isn't any rust issues.

Paint color is Royal Maroon I believe.

I think I can get it for $10k US so is that a no brainer? I would plan to paint it some day, install a spoiler and new Magnum 500 wheels.  :2thumbs:

If you can get it for 10k then yeah a total non-brainer as Mach 1 projects start around 8k - 15k depending on the level of rust and how much of the car is there.

                                                        :iagree:  10K is a gift, don't hesitate. Better yet give me his phone #, my trailer is hooked ready to go.   :roflsmiley:             :rebel:

Haha awesome guys!! Not a Ford man but had a hunch this was a decent deal. He didn't even know if it was an M code when I talked to him lol.

Build plant is F code as well so I can get a full Marti report as well!

I would like to do it as a nice driver and enjoy it.

anything under $15k is an absolute steal, seal the deal before he starts advertising it elsewhere. '69 for many folks is the pinnacle year and the fastback is the most sought after. that one looks like it could bring $20-25k all day as is

Well if I was to ever look at a Mustang , it would be 69 or 70 , I know the suspensions are crap but the best looking years for sure  M ode is supposed to be the desirable ones .

I agree. I always liked the 68's. The M code is the 351 4V. The 390 and 428 cars bring more money for sure but M code is the desirable version of the 351's.

It's a cheap way to get back into an old car. I been missing my Challenger lol.

I occasionally check the 69 Mach 1 market as I have owned a 428 car for about 10 years. I am not sure that car would bring much more than $15K from what I see of the paint quality in particular. It seems a rather careless repaint when you see the door tag painted over. What other short cuts were taken?
The car looks solid enough so that is positive along with the stick. However a real good M code would probably top out below $45K so work backwards.
At $10K it would seem a very good deal.

Thanks for the note BS27! I agree that there are a few things that caught my eye when I looked over the pictures. I guess the only thing to keep in mind, this car was painted almost 35 years ago. Back then there wasn't a lot of reference material or even repo stripes for that matter, so when it comes to the little details I was a bit forgiven for that reason.

This would be a car I would buy for $10k and put no more then $10k into it, keeping it a nice driver quality car that I can use.  :2thumbs:  :burnout:

Marti Report for this car if anyone cares to check it out lol. Not sure if any of these options are rare or not.   :bananasmi
Title: Re: WIW 1969 Mach 1

pretty standard, if not a little bare on options. but that's not a bad thing, means you can get it for a decent price

I Love that fords have the Marti report but I don't understand why people get the basic one and not opt for the Full marti report. It will tell you exactly if the car you own is a one of XXX cars.

My uncle has a 70 Mach 1 in grabber blue,351, auto, white deluxe interior with a radio delete. Marti report outlines right down to the option if it is a one of one car. Which my uncles is thanks to that radio delete.

If I had that option available to my Mopar I wouldn't even consider a basic report!

Either way the 69/70 is a very nice ride! good luck.

I definitely ordered the deluxe report. If this is not the deluxe report I will have to contact them.  :dunno:

You are correct, there are 3 different reports. Standard, Deluxe and Elite must be the one you are talking about. If I end up purchasing the car I will definitely upgrade to the Elite report. ($220 compared to $46)  :thumbsup:

Sorry I wasn't aware there were three levels I though it was just standard and deluxe but in my previous report I meant Elite than.

What you have there is the basic one.

The Marti Reports may have changed over the years as the Deluxe Report does not give a specific one of X cars built. This is a Deluxe Marti Report. The Elite report, I believe comes mounted and a copy of the window sticker for the $220 plus price.

10K is a smoking deal. Car is worth about 20 US the way it sits. Non #'s engine, color and rust issues are why it is not higher. Nice car buy it

Haha I will be for sure. I'm just waiting until I head back east in June. The car is not posted for sale and he knows I want it so no chance it won't be there. He has owned it for almost 35 years so he doesn't mind hanging on for another month.  :2thumbs:

 Not a car I own but I have photos of the car and documents. It was a report I got from a dealer site when I was hunting for one of those Fords with the funny valve covers. This is an original maroon car painted black now.

Hey Guys. I looked at another 1969 Mach 1 yesterday that is very similar to the one I posted about earlier. This one,however, is a completely original, numbers matching, 2 owner car that has only ever had one repaint and wheels out on it. It's a very rare clean original example and has all factory body panel stamps, stickers and even original dealer invoice. What's your thoughts on price?
351-4V
4 Speed
3.25 Trac Loc

no idea on price, but that is a damn good lookin '69. I only really like the fastbacks and the '69 is the best IMO. not a fan of the '71-'73.
