whats a 69 mach 428 worth
« on: August 14, 2019, 08:15:50 PM »
This interests me...
they are an unusual car the big block and not everyone's cup of tea but prices seem to slew all over the place... common matching no's 100+ asks..
few guys on here sit for a while and wait.. seen a few 428's come and go.. is there a magic 80's range??
what else effects value on them?
aside from obvious build plates and fender tags, how much difference does documentation make?? service records?

cheers

in the US, an original engine car is worth more than wrong date codes with original bill of sale and window sticker.

428 4 speed with shaker and ac is worth the most unless one finds a 428 shaker 4 speed scj.

As you say, prices are all over the place but if you're talking R codes (factory shaker) then $90-100K seems to be around the mark for a good driver quality car.  Matching numbers everything and fully restored is more like $120-130K.

These are selling prices rather than asking prices which are two different things...
Cheers,
Brian

There are a few things that affect the prices - other than condition which will differ depending on what car you're looking at.

Originality - people seem to like original-spec cars, rather than modified ones.
Put in a 5-spd? Custom paint job? Unlikely to be worth more than a restored car.
 
Colour: There are a few 'hero colours' that attract more buyers - Candy-apple Red, Black, Acapulco Blue, Silver Jade etc.
There are a few not-so desirable colours too which affect value: Meadowlark Yellow, Pastel Grey, New Lime
There are run-of-the-will colours which are ok but aren't "sought-after" that slow selling a little: Black Jade, Royal Maroon, Indian Fire, Champagne Gold, White....

Auto vs manual: Auto cars are more likely to have their original drivetrain, this adds value, but 4-speed cars are more sought after (they are a muscle car after all) and have different suspension to auto cars (staggered rear shocks).

CJ vs SCJ - the 3.91:1 and 4.30:1 rear gears triggered installation of the SCJ version. Not any more powerful but more desirable and valuable.

Options - drum brake non PS cars are not that sought after. A/C is desirable especially in Australia but only available in 1970 as a 4-speed (they made 13 of them IIRC), A/C didn't come on CJ 4-speed cars in 68/69. PS/PB cars are common.

Hope that helps....

I have a numbers matching Candy Apple Red 4 speed, PB, shaker car. I put AC in as I want to drive and enjoy the car. Which I do!!! Not  a Concourse restoration but a full job done on it in 1012. I would not sell for anything less than 120g. That's not what I'm asking, that is what I would sell it for if somebody came up and offered it to me. Value depends a lot on presentation, 80g would get you a non matching numbers car in a non desirable colour, in driver quality condition IMO.
