Need outside opinions on the value of this z28. 3 owners , first owner sold in 89’, second owner sold in 15’. Me being the third. Original fathom green (23,xxx original miles) Was restored and painted Garnet red in the late 80s by first owner. Car traveled all over the world with second owner while he was active duty. I acquired the car in 2015 . Performed full restoration in 2017-2018. The car is not period correct in the sense of 1969 correct. It is full numbers matching, rebuilt and dyno’d. Rebuilt m-21 and 12 bolt (3.73) The car was a driver before the resto.
The car has tubular upper control arms. Big brake kit and aftermarket AED carb. Full MSD Ignition . Aluminum radiator with electric fan. Power rack and pinion. Heads have roller rockers, cam is a crane gm140 . I have the original carb, fan and clutch, distributor , and steering components. Also have the original center gauges and chrome shift ball. All are in excellent condition. Every body panel is original. The lower chrome molding is not installed at the moment, I was too concearned with scratching the paint trying to put it on .. During the restoration the only replaced section was a small square under the trunk and under the passenger foot area. The car is beautiful and drives amazing. In the event I decide to sell its Difficult to price one that’s this type original and not.

Re: 1969 x33 z28

All comes down the the quality of the build. Body, paint, interior. The usual stuff.

Could be worth anywhere between 25-50.

The Z28 once was adds little if any value imho

Re: 1969 x33 z28

Is that Fathom Green ? Appears black on my screen. NICE !

I think it's safe to say it's worth 50-60...maybe more ? I don't think the mods hurt the value much if any, since you still have a lot of the original parts that were replaced. Some folks, like you, may be willing to pay up for the mods as well.

The main thing is it still has the born with drivetrain and the sheet metal is a plus as well...assuming the repairs were done properly.

Thanks

Yes is was fathom green, replaced it with the tuxedo black. I was torn between original and black. I would be the one looking at it for a while so went with black.

60k would be nice.. had a local guy that tried to purchase prior to finishing. His offer was premium. I should’ve taken it however I couldn’t stomach all that work with no enjoyment. Wanted to enjoy it. I don’t plan on making my money back however that would be close.

Re: 1969 x33 z28

Last year I sold a completely restored fathom green numbers matching Z 28 with less than 200 miles on it. I was only able to get 50-ish for it

In my personal opinion you’re never going to see 60 for what you have.

When you sold it could you describe the selling process... what did you gave to go through? Lot of interest with no money tire kickers or first guy shows up with cash done deal. How much dealing did you do? It’s hard to put a set number on the car for value. Did you pick 50k and tell yourself not a penny less?

Not sure I’m following you? It’s no longer a true Z or they have lost value over time?

Re: 1969 x33 z28

With the caveat that you may have built exactly what a buyer wants and the two of you meet I think you have gotten yourself into the middle of two purchasing camps. Those who will look at your car as a correct Z and calculate what its going to cost them to put it back and the pro tour crowd who are gonna calculate what its gonna cost them to finish it.

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.

Re: 1969 x33 z28

IMO the thing most Z buyers are looking for as close to period original as possible. Once it been modded to the extent yours has been being a Z28 doesn’t enhance the value much over other modded Camaros.

So it comes to the quality of the car and the parts used. Rack and Pinion on stock subframes most often do not work well. Tubulars are made by? Expensive US made like Detroit Speed or Global West or Chinese from CPP or EBay? What brakes?

Re: 1969 x33 z28

Check eBay and search completed auctions.

A FG Z28 X77 all original rotisserie restoration sold 3/3/2019 for $50k

Lots of cars listed at higher prices but SOLD listings are a good gauge of current values.

Re: 1969 x33 z28

That's a great looking car. It could possibly ring the bell at 50K but not 60 IMO. One of mine they were asking 65K and it didn't sell. I eventually got it for 40K

Re: 1969 x33 z28

When I sold mine last year the main reason it was hard to sell was the FG color. I was originally asking 60 and have real buyer saying they would buy at my price if it was Blue or Orange or Silver or Black but didn't like the Green. When I was decided ion painting the car I really wanted to go Black or Cortez Silver but was talked out of it by guys say "you have to go the original color"

I should have gone with my instinct. Guys cared more about a more popular color then original.

Appreciate the feedback from all. To put the car back to stock should require very little cost (relative). Brake calipers, radiator/shroud and power steering pump. I have the master cylinder and booster. I will may plan to do before selling. I’m assuming mid 40’s is a fair asking for both parties . Aftermarket components are quality, global west, griffin, SSBC, AED, Hotchkis, Koni etc.
