I went to Auto Club this morning to pay for non-op, registration and tags for a couple vehicles and look at what pulled in at the same time. This old guy about 80 gets out and goes in, so I snapped a few shots. As I observed him inside and he was kind of disoriented and had difficultly breathing..

The Auto Club reps took care of him and as I walked out he was just sitting in his '69 Mach 1 Mustang...

Another guy was snapping some pics so I asked him if he talked to the old guy and said yes... but it was hard for him to breathe and talk. So he tells me the old guy is the original owner, he bought it new in '68 ... interior is all original and in perfect condition.

We were concerned about him because he wasn't doing well... he left the driver window wide open. Everyone that walk past was gazing at this original unmolested Mach 1.

I felt bad for the old guy. I didn't bother him because he probably gets bugged by people trying to buy it from him. Kinda sad, but amazing at the same time.

Enjoy an original...

DAMN that is a beautiful car. Hard to believe that finds like that are still out there. Its a shame he wasn't feeling better would have been nice to hear his story for sure.

Yeah Jim, he was sitting adjacent to me, but appeared uncomfortable and was wheezing very badly. I almost leaned over to tell him he left the window open to strike up a conversation, but I was more concerned about his condition.

I learned what I thought was true from the other guy that talked to him... an original owner 1969 Mach 1 - my favorite Stang. There was only one minor flaw that you can see on the quarter panel near the rear bumper - but that was it. If you look at the lines, sheetmetal and panel gaps... this one has been taken care of very well.

This is rare to see a 1969 with California black plates, because California went to blue plates in 1969. My dad had a 1969 Dodge Charger and it had blue plates. So this guy has a very rare 1969 that was titled in 1968 that received the older plates.

This is a Barrett-Jackson vehicle, who knows what it's worth.
