What's it worth? Restored 1969 Camaro

http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/3427532703.html

I want to call the guy up and ask if the car is a real SS, and if he has the motor that is original to the car. If not, I feel like it can't justify that price tag.

What do you all think?

On a side note, what do you guys think of this? http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv...467309842.html -- This seems like a fun car

Re: What's it worth? Restored 1969 Camaro

35-40K is way to much for this car......There are tons of cars for sale for way cheaper.

Buy this car and I just saved you 40K....

Are you serious?

The car is pristine and if it checks out as a real SS it's easy worth over $40K.

No way that car is 40K never..... Not based on the information. Have you seen the prices out there? I'm serious....

I can buy a #1 1969 Camaro Convertible Matching # Real RS/SS for way cheaper in show condition.

As for the car in OP it's not worth 40K no way without original engine and paper work to verify it's SS.

Would you please send me a PM and tell me where the vert is ? I don't need a car but I'll buy the one you describe in show condition today cheaper than 40K.
I have cash in hand.

Re: What's it worth? Restored 1969 Camaro

The SS in the 1st link has a lot of repro (and incorrect) parts on it that deviate from Factory original. IMO, that would knock down the "paying for the factory SS pedigree".

Re: What's it worth? Restored 1969 Camaro

Guys it's not worth arguing over pricing with these old cars! The market is not consistent from state to state on quality drivers and more so the buying public is not very well informed either. Consignment shops consistently get from $5k and up more than private party prices and because these cars are weekend toys for a lot of folks who will see a car and want it at almost any price and because owners dump far more into these cars than they are worth, sellers often ask extremely high prices... And sometimes they get it!

Just look at this forum as the example, look how many WIW threads get started! Value is in the eye of the beholder...

Oh and clone or real there is no comparison between the $17k car Tuscaloosa and the over priced car this thread is about! When a seller says "needs some TLC" you can bet that equates to a lot of $$...

Re: What's it worth? Restored 1969 Camaro

Thanks guys, I knew it was overvalued but I didn't know by how much.

That car for 17k looks like a bargain, and I would be all over it if it were a manual transmission car.

Many look like bargains until you get up close and discover how poorly the bodywork was done. Not to mention the mechanicals. Pictures can look enticing but are not truthful. One flag on that 17K Tusc car is the fender inner braces and top of cowl not body color but black. Good sign of a quickie job. Those with little bodywork knowledge are excellent targets. They often buy drivers only to discover they require major panel replacement.

POOR - $500 - $50,000
FAIR - $1,500 - $150,000
GOOD - $4,500 - $250,000
EXCELLENT - $8,500 - $550,000

Not hard to figure out at all!

It's not listed as a #s match car.

If the body and paint are perfect SHOW QUALITY and the quality of the rest of the car is top knotch I don't see mid 40s as way off. $52 I don't think so.

I see a lot of 1st gens and I've bought a sold a few. I see a lot in the mid $30s that are pretty good. But to me it's all about the body and paint. As soon as I seen paint is in the future I figure $10K

Just picked up a 69 Thursday for a buddy of mine. No show quality but spending less then $5K it will make it a very nice driver.

Re: What's it worth? Restored 1969 Camaro

I just got off the phone with the owner, and according to him the car was basically born a 6 cylinder. I can see that the restoration job is really nice, but I don't think I can justify paying that price for a small block SS clone.
