    Any docs with the car Tom? I would put this car in the $18-$23K range as is without the restoration. A big block 4 speed that is cool....nice find. What is the original color combo? How bad is the body rust, under the car and floors?

    Lower quarters front and back, and lower front fenders need work, floors appear solid. Frame rails solid. All the stamped vins are present. Drivetrain is "born with".
    Car sat since '87. Original paint, classic copper with standard saddle interior.
    No protectoplate....early production Norwood.

    Good score, what is the plan...sell or get the car running and drive it? Sounds like typical rust repair and big bonus is the OE driveline. Classic Copper with Saddle would be a nice combo, I think you did well on this find.

    Thanks, but not mine yet. Still working through the details...
    78k miles, second owner switched out original seats for tall backs...

    nice find, I'd say high teens on as is value. I like the copper / saddle color combo. I have not seen as many
    2nd gens in copper or mojave color. nice.

    Great find Tommy, very rare as only 1856 produced. I also own a 70-L34 SS/RS with factory AC and born with motor. I have owned this car almost 20 years and have never seen another one in person only a few on the internet and I've attended the Camaro Nationals for many years. Somewhat difficult to place a value as there are not any real comparisons. There were only 600 L-78, but for whatever reason there are many more still in existence than L-34 cars, and over 8700 Z/28's. That is a very nice car, and definitely worth restoring.

    Interesting point you have there, Dave, regarding the L34 vs. L78 cars. I have the only L34 that I know of in my area, while at last count there are seven L78's. Dale

    Dale, there's no doubt in my mind your car is the benchmark for a original L-34 car, and I thank you for the pics you have sent me over the years to help in my restoration.
