A “Mummified” 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet Is For Sale And Ready To Be Restored. Jerry Lundegaard was right, “TruCoat” is worth every penny of it.
The owner of a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet he’s auctioning on Ebay credits undercoating for the surprisingly rust-free state of the Washington-based car that he’s had sitting in storage for 38 years.
“I BOUGHT THIS CAR IN 1978 AND DROVE IT UNTIL 1981 WHEN THE AGE OLD STORY OF ‘LIFE’ HAPPENED – GOT MARRIED HAD KIDS…TURNS OUT I AM NOT REALLY MUCH OF A ‘CAR GUY’…I HAVE REALIZED IT NEEDS TO GO TO SOMEONE WHO WILL APPRECIATE IT FOR WHAT IT IS A !!!!TRUE SURVIVOR!!!!,” he says in the Ebay listing.
He wrote in the description that a mechanic recently got rid of the musty black on black coupe from its mummified state to confirm that its 428 V8, close-ratio four-speed and brakes all still work.
The vehicle is mostly original, including the carpet and seats, and wears the set of era-appropriate bias-ply tires it was stored away with. It comes with its original build sheet and Marti Report detailing its history.
If it is as authentic as the listing says it is, the car could be worth $75,000-$95,000 with a thorough restoration. As of now, bidding on the auction, which ends Monday night, had reached $50,200 at the time of this post.Auto News, Blog
