I don't believe I have ever seen a CJ sit so high in the front as this one, unless he has E70-14 wheels and tires.

Yep, It appears to be a beautiful '70 BB Mach I specimen.

Now I'm not trying to find fault, but....

I didn't read anywhere in the description that it was re-painted, yet it is listed as being white in color.

The Marti Report says it's Pastel Blue.

In my records, the 1970 PPG color code chart doesn't list a Pastel Blue being offered. It does, however, list a Pastel Yellow (which it's obviously not) and a Baby Blue Ice/Diamond Blue (maybe close in color to pic?) as being offered by FORD. It looks to me to be the '69 color, Pastel Gray.

Any thoughts?
Ryan

My 68 is diamond blue and most people will actually argue with me that its white.If you lay something white on it you can easily see that it is in fact blue...Nice Mach althought the front does seem to sit a little high(new springs maybe?)..If it stays anywhere near that price it would be a steal...I don't see a reserve price?

No reserve? That's ballsy.

Ryan, I can't find the file I put my chip chart in but Pastel Blue was N code in '70.

Although I sold it 20 years ago, I once owned almost the identical car as that one. It was a "R" code Pastel Blue 70 Mach 1, 428CJ, 4 speed, with a blue interior with fold down rear seat, tilt steering, AM 8track, PS,& PDB.The paint code is the same for 1968 Diamond Blue and 1970 Pastel blue (don`t know if it was used in 69). The paint code is N, and I can`t recall how many people said it was white! Pastel(& Diamond) blue is a very light blue, and admittedly does look a "tad" whitish in direct sunlight, but on a cloudy day, it id most definatly blue, almost like a light Robins egg blue. I would often keep a sheet of white paper in my car, and after listening to somebody calling it white, I would lay the paper on the hood, and most would agree that there was a blueish hue.That Mach 1 was just one of many cars that I wish I would have hung onto. SIGH.

It's right there on the lower left, code N, except they call it Diamond Blue. They love playing with the names. On my Mach in '70 code 6 is Bright Blue Metallic, in '69 the very same color was called Acapulco Blue.

Wonder if it was a scam. Bidding only went to 12,800. Then auction was closed before it officially ended. Or maybe he just got the right offer. Except the ad listed a phone number that Mike tried to call and it went to a fax. He faxed them and got no reply.

Can't afford it anyway, but was curious. Would have annoyed the owner by being looky-loo.
