    I'm not a "value" expert, but it seems that the car has a replacement motor per BaT or a decked/restamped motor at the very least. Aftermarket transmission, non-original fender(s), etc. So from an originality perspective, where is the value? To me, it's a very nicely restored car with some originality issues that may not be correctable and some incorrect parts that can be corrected if desired. I think the value is about right where it sits now at $30K - $35K for a restored car with said issues. This car wouldn't be an investment type car to me, so value is what you want to pay. Looks like a fun car to drive a lot and make some changes as you do. I wouldn't worry about value unless I was looking for a 100% original car.

    Again, I agree with Dave and am also surprised Jerry missed this issue. As to your questions, there in lies the problem...it sure looks good in the pictures, but there's no way to tell at this point if the repair was done well...or not. Overall, like Billy said, it looks like a really nice car that can be driven and enjoyed. If you're looking for an investment quality car, then this probably isn't it.

    They hate it when you do that! Seriously that’s why you see fewer VINS in ads than a few years ago. The internet does not forget.

    I hate to pick apart other peoples cars, but for the amount of money, he is going to ask for it, it needs to be right, or at least close.

    I agree. I try not to be nit picky, especially if it's someone's ride that they did the best they could. It may not be perfect due to resources, knowledge, etc., but you don't want to be a know-it-all and cross the "being a superior ass" line. Besides, these cars weren't perfect from the factory to begin with.

    However, when you put a car up for sale, it goes with the territory and you should expect it. To me, honesty is the best policy and you should be 100% transparent. Explain what is not correct as if explaining to someone that's unfamiliar with these cars. And if you're wanting top dollar, you invite the scrutiny.
    Take a look at this car. Look at the price. This place always seems to be on the high side on 2nd gens, but this one blew my mind. This is an example of someone restoring a car that probably isn't a member here, lol. Love the floor mat hiding the gas pedal.

    Read the description and look at the fenders on this car.
