    Well I think its coming time for me to give up on the '71 and let it move to someone else that has the time for it. Basically I haven't touched the car in probably 3 years and don't see myself getting to it anytime soon. And with my current situation I could use the money to pay off some debt.

    I hate to get rid of it but I'm just not sure if its really feasible at the current time. But I'm not quite sure how much I should ask for it. I know its only worth what someone is willing to pay but at the same time I don't want to let it go for nothing.

    So here is what I got. What do you think a reasonable price would be for this? Pretty sure I even have most if not all the receipts for everything.

    Year: 1971
    Model: Standard

    Engine

    Cam: Edelbrock Performer Cam kit w/ double roller timing set

    New Radiator

    Tranmission

    B&M Extra Capacity pan
    B&M Shift improver kit
    B&M Torque Converter
    B&M Hammer Shifter
    B&M Transmission Cooler

    2nd Gen Camaro Rear Seat
    Repop door panels and hardware
    OER Dash panel
    Simulator Carbon fiber dash gauge bezel

    Assuming the car is mechanically finished - and only needs exterior work such as paint and assembly? It would really benefit you to scuff it down and shoot it (I hate to say it) satin black. It would be super cheap to do over one weekend. That would really help it heaps of looking as finished as it is. Even if the buyer has to sand it off to paint, it will really help your presentation.

    I'll third. Even if you don't paint it soon, you have a running/driving car. Enjoy it. Paint isnt everything. Ive been driving and enjoying mine with almost no interior or paint for nearly 6 years. I cant afford to paint it... yet

    My experience is a car like this with all those good parts will bring more parting it out than as a whole. You will probably be insulted at what guys will offer if they really have the money in hand.

    If I insult you with an offer, will you get the urge to drive it again? As that sits, $2500. Everyone sells their old muscle car with a freshly rebuilt engine/tranny (claim to anyways) and never been in a wreck.

    Paint it or part it. Either way, that's the best way to get the most from your car.

    man sorry to hear that your going to let it go...

    I've seen a lot of crap on CL going for 4-7k..but sit there forever on that price.

    I'd say you should be able to get about $5k locally in the bay area

    I sold my rust bucket 78Z for $6,500. I had a bunch of $$$ in the motor, but the rest was crap.
