I bought a true 69 RS project car last year. I'd wanted a 69 since I was a kid and was probably a little too hasty. Non matching motor/trans, but pretty complete and strong running. Usual rust around quarters, fenders and tailpan. Interior good shape. Of course once I got it home and started looking hard, the extent of the rust and rot became evident. I'm taking it to the body shop next week and dropping about 5 grand (not including new sheet metal). I paid around 7,000 for it and think I paid probably way too much. But, it's mine and about two months from now, it will be sweet! Just make sure yours is a real RS...ripoffs aren't too hard to do. My two cents.
