Rare, Rotting Ford Mustang Found On Ebay
June 8th, 2018
If you look in the right places, you might just find treasures. Like one of the rarest Ford Mustangs in the world that happened to be found on Ebay for $2,000. And depending on your views, that's either way too much or not nearly enough!
It’s a 1970 Mustang Mach 1 428 Super Cobra Jet Drag Pack that’s a shell of its former self. Literally.
It's stripped of its engine, transmission, rear axle, hood, doors, dashboard and pretty much everything other than its body and windows. The weathered coupe is sitting in a yard in Iowa with weeds growing out of it and a rusty undercarriage, according to the seller.
But it still has its VIN and buck tags, and Mustang historian Kevin Marti used them to check his extensive archives where he found that it is one of just 23 cars like it that were built in 1970 without the Ram-Air option, and is the only one of them that was originally painted Lime Green. In other words: It’s a one-of-one car.
If it were in perfect condition, such a unique vehicle could be worth well over $100,000. As is, it hadn’t attracted any bidders with little over a day to go in the auction.
