Confused, what are people buying here???

Quote:
This auction is for a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Project car. In need of complete restoration. Has rusted out floor pans. Will need all exterior sheetmetal also. Interior is incomplete. Doors open and close fine. Car was originally 327 V8 engine and now it has been changed to a later model V8 not running. Originally had auto trans with console shift. What you see in the pictures is basically what you get. No title, comes with bill of sale only. Local pick up only. Please note the front wheels and tires do not go with this car but will have another set mounted at the time of pickup. Any further questions, please contact me.
no title, no Xcode, nothing that I can see that does not need replacing.
31 bids up to $5K

Re: Confused, what are people buying here???

What are they buying? A parts vehicle! And not a very good one. Without a title, it can't be licensed where I live.

Current bid is 5600 and WOW I can not see paying anywhere close to that.

Might be some funny business going on. The most recent (highest) bids are by bidders with zero feedback.

Re: Confused, what are people buying here???

I just watched a 59K mile 69 327 bid to 14.9K no sale. It was nice.
Market is kinda strange.
That is a way into a vert if you cant do the big initial kerplunk of cash.

Re: Confused, what are people buying here???

Not surprising, really. While it'd be nice to have a title, cars like that down here- even non-verts- go for $5-6k all day long. Mine was in similar condition and the seller had over 20 calls in a matter of a few hours of posting on Craigslist at $5k.

Good stainless molding for a 'vert.
Late-'70's early '80's engine, blue in color.
Good carpet extenders - those pieces next to the door sill plate.
Good qtr panel grille chrome.
AM radio, repairable heater core?
Front 'vert counter weights, no rears though.

Nice Flintstone car...

Trim tag has NBR instead of NOR or LOS or VN. I have never seen that before.

Re: Confused, what are people buying here???

Just because it doesn't have a title doesn't mean you can't get it titled. I live in a 'title' state.....the last time I checked into the matter of bringing a car into NC from a state that did not require a title I was told at NC-DMV that I needed my bill of sale from the seller and the prior bill of sale, and after an inspection I could then get an NC title for the car.

As for the price, hey it's a '69 Camaro Convertible.

No title required in CT on these cars, which is where it is. How much would that car be worth overseas if rebuilt around the numbers, even if sold just as a roller with new tin?

Re: Confused, what are people buying here???

NBR trim tags aren't rare, I've seen a few (even a couple here in Australia) but they were a mis-stamp of NOR.

In 2005 people were paying 10-15k for first gens in waaay worse shape.

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.
