    remember the old saying "No 56K" ...that applies




    I have a storage unit in a bit of an industrial section of NJ. Across the street is an auto garage that had the Mach 1 out front for sale. So i wanted to take a look at it .... saw a few other things parked in the side yard of this place.

    Cool. What a shame about that Willys. I have a Willys Pickup and Im a huge fan of the wagons. The fastback Mustang is (was) pretty cool too.

    I like that Mach 1. The blue fastback has gotten to be a common car nowadays. Kinda like a 69 Camaro....boring!

    i had more pics of it but i deleted a folder with like 20 more pics of these


    here is the VIN off the Mach 1

    thats off the dash. it doesnt have a door panel tag. I dont know if thats a good thing or a bad one. There s another mustang just like this in another part of the shop that is in the restroation bondo stage so who knows whats going on there.

    you have a site to decode the blue or white vin?

    I like the van cause it reminds me of the Scooby Mystery Machine while at the same time it reminds me of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre ...no idea what either of those vans were





    and the buggy

    More info on the Mustang fastback! Does it have engine, trans, rear end? If so, you should buy it ASAP if the guy will part with it. The K-code is EXTREMELY rare.

    You're not kidding. Seeing that K-code like that is killing me. To find a non-GT K-code fastback is pretty cool, especially with a 4 speed and 3.50 rear end. That's a $10,000 car at least just because of the VIN number.

    no engine....there are trees growing thru the engine bay lol

    didnt walk around to see if the trans was in it. or look at the other things to ID it.


    its a shame because pulling it out of the dirt might snap it in half.

    Honestly, the VIN is what's worth the money. It'd still be worth pulling out of there.
