    Guys and girls,

    I bought a 71 Camaro that was a street race car "back in the day". It had a full roll cage in it, but was partially removed. The bars inside the doors from the bar to the floor has been removed. The floor has not been cut nor have the wheel wells been modified. I bought it because I know the guy that owned it for the last 13 years. The motor is a 68 325 hp 396 that was just rebuilt 3 years ago, but never driven other than around the block a couple times a year. It had a THM 350 in it, but I took it out and replaced it with a newly rebuilt Muncie M21 out of a 70 Chevelle. The car has a 12 bolt posi rear with 3:73 gears in it. The guy I bought it from did a ton of work to it but did not drive it. I got it running and installed the 4 speed. The car is so much fun to drive. The problem is that it needs a complete interior. The dash is original and still in it, I have the rear seat and one front bucket, but am missing the other seat. All of the interior needs to be replaced or recovered. Door panels are shot and the plastic arm rests and stuff are all chalky and in need of replacement. The interior is sad.

    I am contemplating selling it "as is" and letting the new owner decide the direction to take on the interior. It runs perfect and did I mention its so much fun to drive.

    I'm wondering what the real value is for a car like this. I see the prices on the internet for nice drivers and the prices are impressive. Don't take this wrong this car isn't that nice as the interior is trashed. The body is great. Not rusty at all. The mechanicals are solid as a rock. The motor was pretty much a stock type rebuild crane HIT cam (nothing crazy) performer RPM dual plane manifold with a holley 750 double pumper (3779-7). Brand new Hurst shifter. Ive gone through all the brakes and replaced the master cylinder as well as one front caliper.

    The car is an original SS 350 4 speed car if that means anything. It is not a split bumper car. I know its hard to assess value on a car like this, but am curious to know your experiences.

    What part of the country are you in? Location will also help determine value.

    Yes the roll bar is welded to the floor. It is not welded to the frame. Whoever installed it welded plates to the floor then welded the roll bar to the plates. It would be pretty easy to remove it. By easy I mean not hard, it would be time consuming to grind the edges of the plates.

    I have been contemplating removing it anyway. What to you guys think? Remove it?

    It's gotta be worth over $10k easily.

    If you plan on selling the car, then I wouldn't bother. It's not going to change the value by the amount of effort needed to do it correctly. Just my $.02
