my father-in-law told me one of his workers has a 67 rs/ss convertible. supposedly all matching #'s ss 350.
he said the guy got an estimate and it would take $5,000 to get it "right". by right, i have no idea what that means or what the car needs. my father-in-law just retired so the guy that owns it is looking for a job and mentioned he has no money to fix it up and might would sell the car to my father-in-law. pop says he doesn't want to press the issue for fear the price might go up, but I've told him to find out what he could since I'm having no luck finding the wife that 69 firebird convertible she wants.
my ? is how much do you think the car would be worth. i know 'm not providing a whole lot of info. if i ever get to see the car, I'll post more. just wanted a ballpark figure of what the car might be worth (now or finished).
also if it's a ss 350, will it have a powerglide if auto, wasn't the turbo only on the 396? never had a car with a glide, how are they for street use?
see that ss includes special hood and ornaments, front header panel paint stripes (bumblebee?), underhood insulation, special nylon red stripe tires, 14x6 wheels, suspension features, fender SS emblems and SS emblems on radiator grille and gas filler cap;
while rs includes front valance mounted parking lights, electrically operated headlight doors, body lower side moldings, body side paint stripes (even withh the ss stripe?), front and rear wheel opening moldings, black painted taillight bezels, rear valance mounted back-up lights, special grille styling
if it's a rs/ss would it probably have any sort of deluxe interior and any other neat equipment that go with a rs or ss?
i would think that the 295-hp Turbo-Fire 350-cid engine that came in it would be pretty stout.
