Periodically, we see swapped four doors for sale; but the seller here has a Marti report documenting original equipment. Further, this car looks perfect in dark red/maroon with black vinyl top and those original GT wheels. Its four-door nature retains sleeper quality, but we imagine the 390 with headers gives things away a bit.
Depressed four-door prices made them bargain used cars for smart families back in the day and that holds true for enthusiasts today. This won't be a great collector investment, but it should be reasonably to purchase, it won't likely lose value and it will likely provide a lot of fun (with the option of a couple kid seats in the back). This is also cheaper to buy and maintain than another of our favorite four doors, the Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.3...
Just note that this one may need diff work:

With the engine off, this is a sleeper, although closer inspection reveals it wears the best 15-inch tire one can buy today, the Pirelli P6000 (see pic in ad).
Exposed exhaust gives things away a bit.
Front end, of course, matches the two-door Montego (and isn't too different from a Torino), which was a handsome car.
Grandma's car styling is perfectly clean and, yet again, we like the dual exhaust. Was it that exposed when stock?
Here's a money shot with the four-speed. Note the bench seat - this car technically seats six adults!
Very rare in a four door is a tachometer!
The engine has a bit of dress-up, but some of these had chrome bits when stock. Supposedly, it was rebuilt about 6000 miles ago. Power steering is present, but no AC.
