For a muscle car that does not require serious investments, they ask for only 15 thousand dollars

In a shed in Georgia, USA, a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was found that had been locked up for at least 20 years. The muscle car turned out to be fully equipped, and, according to the assurances of the current owner, does not require large-scale restoration. It was washed from a long-term layer of dust, the interior was dry-cleaned and put up for sale for 15 thousand dollars.

Repair is required for the Mustang’s underbody, which has corroded slightly over years of inactivity, and rubber and shock absorbers need replacing, according to an ad posted on Facebook. The 5.8-liter V8 Windsor engine with 253 horsepower is in good condition, the air conditioning and power steering are working.

The Ford Mustang Mach 1 was produced between 1964 and 1973 and sold 72,458 units. On the ClassicCars.com online platform, you can find advertisements for the sale of a model for both 99.5 thousand dollars and cheaper, for example, for 49 thousand and 33 thousand dollars. Against this background, the price inserted for a copy found in Georgia looks more than tempting.

At the end of the summer, the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was put up for sale, which was involved in the filming of yet-to-be-released Hollywood films. He should appear in the pictures “Hobbs and Shaw” and the ninth part of “Fast and the Furious”. The price of this sample is 75 thousand dollars.
