Wanted to run the projects across

Hey everyone, I'm selling my 67' as I feel it's too far gone for my skill level. I have found a couple projects near me that I'm very interested in. What do you guys think? Price, condition? Which one is better overall? Thanks!

Although the factory 8 track is appealing, I'd pass on the 72. Looks like it would be a ton of work and parts to get it anywhere reasonable.

The 69 looks reasonably priced for a mach, and being a Mach 1 it could hold value a little better, but that makes me question why they put the price there. It obviously lived in the elements. If it has deep rust issues, I'd walk away, but I'd say it's worth seeing in person.

If you check them out, show us pictures!

Hey, so what is the status of your 67? What parts of it were too far gone (and more importantly, what's still useable)?

Yep looks like the 69 in in a little better shape and I like that body style over the 72.

My 67 just had really crappy floor work done that I don't even know where to begin in and it appears the passenger side underside isn't connected to the front part of the frame. The electrical is shot and I don't have the knowledge to fix it. Everyone says it's easy but it's just not for me and I csnt find anyone to help. Small things other than that. I just want my money back out of it and to find another car that's more of my level. I also don't know how good engine is. It sounded amazing when it ran. 289 with 292 cam. Has 4 barrel carb and intake with headers. 9 inch rear end. Not sure on trans condition either. Appeared to leak all fluid out but I've been so unmotivated I haven't looked at transmission yet

The rear quarters have been half replaced and one front panel needs patched. It's just a total mutt. It was a v6. It does have 5 lug wheels.

And I like the 69 more too but they both have amazing potential. I feel the 72 would cost a lot more to fix up. I'm not sure I'll go look at it. I want to but my family doesn't want me to buy it while I still have my 67 sitting in the garage. Understandably

Yes those project cars can be a money pit! Too bad you can't find anybody near to help you out with it, it is always nice to have a helping hand on a project like that. Question, are there any local schools near buy that have Auto shop's? Some times they will help out for just the cost of parts! Sounds like some extensive body work needs to be done also!

Yep two projects setting in the garage would be a bit much unless you have lots of time and money to throw at them!

Being in college I don't have a whole lot of money or time haha. My school does have an auto shop for tech programs but I don't think they would take the car on. I haven't asked yet though

I have a 75 mg midget also that I have partially restored. It's drive able and a total blast but I've always been an American muscle and mustsng guy. So I want a mustang pretty bad. I had one in high school that was wrecked so this would be a replacement for that in my eyes. The freedom and feeling the mustsng brings is unparalleled

So...let me know if you wind up parting out the 67. I MIGHT have interest in your drivetrain, or maybe just the 9" rear end. Kansas is a quick trip from CO...depending on where you are in the state.

You should look at the value those cars restored. Then look at what the car needs and add up all the part prices and see how much potentially you will be in the car. Doing that will allow you to see which one is the better deal. Also a good idea to look at cl in your area for parts

I will do that! I would like to get the whole car gone all at once.

And that's very true ER. I am not so much looking for value as I am something within my means of restoration based on my equipment and knowledge. I wouldn't plan on ever selling as long as I know I can finish the project and treat it how it deserves to be
