    So assuming I clean up the rims and put new BFG tires on the car, fix the hood alignment, and give this car a solid detailing ---- does anyone want to venture a fair selling price? Again, I'm hoping to catch some buzz from the nice spring weather...


    A few more details:
    It has a fresh roller-cam'd 383, TKO600, new drive-shaft and rebuilt rear (heavier axles, 3.73's, new posi, welded tubes). No rust. I have lots of extra's I'll throw in with it (extra t-tops, extra louvers, lots of little stuff, original spare and air can, etc...).

    Also, all new hard lines, brakes/calipers/rotors/wheel cylinders/master cylinder/prop valve were all replaced. New shocks, springs, fuel tank, fuel pump, IROC steering box, new power steering pump.

    Paint is decent, but not perfect (15 years old). It's a fun weekend warrior car, but not a show car.

    Did I miss how much you are wanting for this?
    Did I miss why your selling this?

    No, I never really said. I have another vehicle in mind, but this car and my daily driver both need to go first.

    I'm trying to decide on a fair price. My boss keeps telling my $12k, but I think that is too high. I'm looking for input on price actually...

    I agree, clean it up and start @ $12K if you have time to burn. Like I said, I'd get a dyno to prove the engine's value.
    Sit it at a few local colleges, high schools, or even a Military base and it will more then likely sell quick.

    Something that will absolutely help you sell a 30+ year old vehicle is finding a few options to finance it through ahead of time.
    Then you can list that on your window advertisement.

    Spring is coming, get on it.

    You need to dig up that build thread and have all buyers at least look through it.

    We're having lunch next week. He is all over the board with sentimental emotions - which is completely understandable. I give him a 50% chance at this point.

    $15k, lol. If he buys it, he will get an excellent deal. He paid me the same favor when I bought it from him dirt cheap about eight years ago.

    The cool thing is that he watched me build this car. He knows everything I've done. I fixed many of the things that bothered him over the years. He likes the upgrades as well :) He bought this car new in 1980 :bowtie:
