New high sale price for a 69 Mach 1
« on: January 14, 2015, 11:45:42 pm »
This sounds like a new high point for a 69 CobraJet Mach 1.  Sold today for $165K....a really top notch car.

I got to see that one cross the block.  I thought that it was color changed from Indian Fire? 
Not that it doesn't look great - it definitely does!

That's a nice car! $$

It reminds me of my situation in 1993.

The Mustang Monthly Magazine used to print "world record" sales. Then, the highest sale for a CJ was $26k US which had been restored by Bob Perkins.
I had just restored a Black Jade 69 Cobra Jet to concours condition (1993) which sold to Japan for approx $45k US
I faxed Mustang Monthly with evidence of my sale, and their response was that their "world record" sales are only sales in America  :-\  :o  (only in America ;D)

 Not a SCJ 4 speed for that kind of money?  Every part must be correct and original. I would have loved to seen the car!

Good eye John!  Of course the caution fan detail does have a practical application. Did anyone see this car?

beautiful car. Those who don't think black commands a premium only has to look at this car. Is this the car that Pratt bought a few years ago for 117K and the owner was there and told a few forum members he took off the T-bred expensive parts like tires and battery and replaced with repo before sending to BJ?? I have come to HATE caution fan decals BTW....At that price maybe it is time to re-think my SCJ car and do a concours on it....I would probably change the car from red to black  :) I do get a kick out of the "experts" though. A lime gold 67 GT500 went thru. The commentator said that is a rare color for a Shelby. WTF? I believe lime gold was the MOST pop color on 67 Shelbys.....

140 to 180 seems to be the norm, thanks.

There are at least 3 Lime '67 GT500's there this week.

Pretty pricey at $165k.  Show room static display car that no one will ever drive ?  CJ automatic with all the power stuff - not the best  example of a 69 muscle car.  Just my reaction.  So Marcus do you know who it was that out bid you on this rig ?  Brian

While I have never seen any of Ron Pratt's cars in person but  they touted he bought the best of the best-hence the "crazy" prices paid for some of the cars. I hope someone has more info on this black car. The rumor was it won many awards then  many rare parts were replaced with repo parts for auction. I remember someone saying Ron bought it. Same car?

This kind of restores my faith in Cobra Jets. It seems like CJ's have been going nowhere for a long while and I had pretty much resigned myself to loosing my a$$ on my Sportsroof resto. Case in point the Rick Parker restored lime/white 70 SCJ Sportsroof that's been on ebay a dozen times over the last 6-8 months struggling to hit 40K....  Maybe prices are on the rebound as the lime and white car is approaching 70K this time around.  Maybe I should paint the old yellow car black too. Doesn't seem to hurt.
