A factory 428 CJ Mach 1 with a 4-speed is a very valuable car. As mentioned, this car will need more than paint. The doors are completely shot. The car will likely need new doors at the very least. Definitely get some pictures of the undercarriage. There may be more rust under there.

The bad news is properly fixing this car for paint will likely be about $20,000 or more if you pay a shop to do all the rust repair. The cowl and floor pans could also be shot. The good news is since it's a factory 428 CJ car with a 4-speed, it has a lot of value and, if you can afford to have it fixed, it would be worthwhile.

I'm pretty sure this car is in Kansas and the seller was asking 58k for it

I misread the original post and thought the numbers matching engine is missing.
That said-- I still think 45K this is a fair deal

I'm in this same boat but selling mine. Non shaker 428 cj. Non original paint and interior (was acapulco blue with white, now silver jade with black). Not much documentation of the restoration but Marti report. I think between 50 and 60 is going to be the fair price for mine. I tend to agree with Cason above that mid to high 40s considering condition (only by pics you've posted) would be fair.

From what I see it's $60-70k all day long. Will need rust repair. Very common in the doors. Check conditions of drive train

I agree 100% with this statement, in the current market anything at or under $60K is a screaming deal. Completed listings from eBay:

1- 1969 fully restored 428CJ 4 speed, originally non shaker car sold $100K: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 - 428 Cobra Jet R Code 4 Speed | eBay

2-1969 428CJ 4 speed car, NON-MATCHING numbers, no Marti Report, described as driver quality, modified with aftermarket "racing" parts sold 60K: 1969 Ford Mustang | eBay

3- 1969 restored M code 4 speed car, with aftermarket "racing" parts clearly visible, sold for $56K: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 351 mach 1 | eBay

4- 1969 428 SCJ automatic, supposedly a 53,000 mile survivor, but they state the car has been repainted (obviously), seems to have had work done all over it, but is listed as a survivor... sold $97.5K: 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428 Super Cobra Jet | eBay


When people are paying close to 60K for a restored M-code, an R code car in descent/good condition, as this one seems to be, is easily worth that.

This one in question is a Q code

Rust would be my concern. that door rust is a red flag for me. Valuable car yes but rust is the devil and doors are the last to go. High value purchase should be on a hoist for full inspection.
good luck
