Question

I just obtained a radio delete plate for a 69, it is still mounted in the gauge cluster and is in mint condition, what is this item worth? and who would be my market?

JC,

I have heard these go for more like $300 - $400. Put on ebay or in Hemmings to get best results.

Good Luck!

For some of the money people want for things you wouldn't be buying much. So you probably would be sleeping at night because your trip out to get parts wouldn't last very long. Sorry, I don't mean to sound that way just hate where the market is heading and what people are asking for some stuff.

I too hate the way price are and have been going, I know this all to well after restoring a L/78 then turning my attention to my 1969 Corvette I was blown over at the cost of parts because it say's CORVETTE, I received this radio delete plate with several other parts, dash cluster, console gauges etc, and have only seen pictures of such a part but never in person let alone own one. I am not sure if I would sell it at this point but have taken note of the offer and would give a Camaros.net person first crack. I had great luck on this site selling my L/78 and buying and selling other parts. Keep up the great site, and I will continue to buy from Ground Up for my detail parts for my RS Z28

I figure everything is relative. If the parts were worth nothing or could be bought for .10 cents on the dollar, that would make your nicely restored Camaro worth .10 cents on the dollar. Everyone knows that nice completed cars are not being given away.

You guys are a bunch of whiners and cheats! This poor guy has a rare part and doesn't know what it is worth and asked a trusting question and you guys try to rip him off! Yes, I bet you couldn't sleep at night, right after you guys give him $200 for his part and then sell it for $500 the next day! Get a conscious! Rare parts for 1st Generation Camaro's are high, but so are the price of the cars. Guess what, they aren't making them anymore!

I've got a friend who paid $400. for one for his 69 Z/28.
He has a radio for the car too, but does not want it in there.
He didn't want to search for it and is not a web or computer type guy.

He made a call, got the part and is happy with it. At least the part was nice.

It certanly didn't feel like a $400 part when I had it in my hands. You could buy almost half a set of Carrillo rods for that much money!

He has the nicest black 69 Z with houndstooth seats, the works. All it needed was that plate!

i think he should see if classic camaro would
buy it and reproduce it. maybe that would stop a 20-50 dollar part turning into a 400-500 part.

If it was reproduced it wouldn't fit.

Guaranteed.
