I am having some trouble getting a fair price for my son's (and my) 1983 Z-28, which was totalled on 7/4 (to our great dismay). The insurance company has offered us a little more than the "blue book" value for the car, but we feel that it cannot be replaced for the $$ they offered.
The car was a 1983 red, mint-condition, Z-28. We purchased it from the original owner several years ago, and we still have the original window "sticker price" list, as well as the marketing ad/book provided by Chevrolet. The original owner also provided us with detailed documentation of all maintenance and repairs. (She even replaced a headlamp prior to turning the car over to us because it had some condensation in it!)
The car has a 305 V8, 4-speed automatic with overdrive, 342 rear end, custom catalytic converter, new tires, steel wheels, custom dash, flawless exterior, 105K original miles, CD player.
My research has not turned up any cars of this model year, and I am loathe to try to negotiate with the adjuster without more information.
Please advise ASAP!! Thanks.
