I have a chance to buy a 65 coupe and 69 mach 1 s code 390 4 speed. Both project cars. $1000 for the coupe and $2500 for mach 1. Coupe has a decent body 289 4 barrel. But door tag doesn't match the vin under the hood ! Mach 1 has all matching door tag and serial # but does have a dent in trunk hatch and rear quarter panel as well as the door. Some surface rust. I haven't had a chance to dig further and look for any significant more rust. Just looking for you experts to give me your opinions ! I will try to upload pictures

So are you saying $2500 is a good deal? I don't know much about restorations and am afraid that I would bite off more than I can chew and be stuck with the car

If its a real mach with all original everything I would buy it. I'm no expert but I think its a good deal.

For some reason I couldn't load ur pics from the app but I went to the site and looked at them. The 65 looks solid, but the mach is beat to Hell. It's gonna need a lot of body work. If you have never done anything like this I would not suggest the mach, but rather the 65. The 69 is way more rare and better looking imo but its gonna take A LOT more work. And a lot more money to restore .

" I have owned my 69 390 S code Mach 1 for 10 years now. It is very hard to find info on the 390's. I have heard that the production of these rare cars hovers around the 1,100 mark."

" The '69 390 'stang in any configuration was the absolute rarest one built, By then all the performance guys wanted the 428CJ and very few were built."

Dude what are you waiting for? Grab the Mach without thinking twice. If its not a rust bucket and its just the dent go for it.

Buy both cars, part out the coupe and put that money into the Mach.
