Need help appraising my 1969 Mach 1
Hi everyone! I am new to this site and wish I knew about it several years ago.
I own a 1969 Mach 1. (Its been in my family for 15 years). My father passed away and left it to me right before he died. I now have a guy interested in buying it, but its not running right now. As a matter of fact, he has driven me crazy for the last few months about it since he knew I was the owner. It was running when I parked it a little over a year ago at my friends house. When I got it from my father, he said the carb needed re-building and the exhaust was new. All I know is it was fast and sounded really good.
The drive train, engine (351W), Automatic transmission, exhaust and chassis is very good, but the body has a lot of rust around the tail lights, door hinges, and bubbling surface rust here and there. The interior is really good actually, and the seats are very nice. The back seat looks hardly used. The floor pans have rust and could use replacement or modification. I have new front end parts (control arms and bushings, etc) that have never been installed. I also have the original rims and hub caps, although the wheels on it now are Craigar SS rims.
My father was going to re-do this car and never got time and or money. I thought about re-doing it and giving it to my son for his 16th B-day. Could someone direct me to some sort of appraisal website or method to use? I am interested in selling or trading it to him for a classic Ford truck, or maybe not. I just don't know what it's worth or if its worth fixing up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
