Local NJ car, what do you think of the BIN price?

She looks good - original patina?
Good oil pressure, no leaks, does A/C work?
Where is the rear CA plate?

Looks really good and original. Trunk mate seems to be missing. There is no posi differential sticker or any mention of one. Has engine manufacturers sticker on right valve cover which may mean valve covers have never been off.

Anyone think he will get near his BIN price? I have doubts for a SB car.

I think that's a reasonable price for that car. Not many around in that condition and with those options.

Re: I haven't posted one of these in a while, but this caught my eye.

I'd say it's a little high, but he's got 22+ days (ad duration) to see if someone will bite. I'd probably price it the same way and hopefully get some offers to think about.

Roger, "posi-traction" was optional, so apparently this car doesn't have it. It definitely looks like a survivor with lots of originality. Except for the Derby caps ! Can't blame the owner for removing the trunk mat as the pan would most likely be rusted out by now if it had spent any time outdoors or in a non-climate controlled building....unless it was in a super dry climate. Note the molded hood insulation. Seldom do you find a car with original insulation, in good enough condition to tell it was molded for the air cleaner, etc...

My dilemma with owning a car like this is what do you do about the paint ?? Looks like rust or primer is peeking through the trunk lid and the hood is probably not far behind. Avid collectors would frown on a repaint and some would think it would take away it's survivor status, thereby diminishing it's value.

Any thoughts on that ?

Re: I haven't posted one of these in a while, but this caught my eye.

All good comments so far. Maybe one of our paint guys can offer what he would do about the patina.
The seller has 83 watching so I think someone is going to bite.
My thoughts are with Garth's thinking that an avid collector wants the paint "as is".
Good color combo, RS SS, automatic with air and custom interior. Not being a BB doesn't hurt it at all. The originality makes up for the desirability in SB vs BB.
Given what 1st Gen's are selling at in NJ/NY Metro area, I think some serious collector is going to get a prime example of a pure stock, even at the BIN price.
We shall see in about 20 plus days, unless that "avid" collector hits the BIN.

Ahh, the voice of reason. Thanks John!

"Maybe $38-39". Might be if the seller makes a concession. But isn't this an auction with a BIN price? If so, a bidding war may move it into the low $40's. Then someone will click the BIN.

Interesting to watch. Even more interesting to see where the 1st gens are going price wise. It's a very bullish market here in the Northeast.

One of my cruise buddies just paid $26,500.00 for a "restored" second Gen SB RS 4spd. Prior to his purchase he offered me $35K for my car.

Re: I haven't posted one of these in a while, but this caught my eye.

Personally, I prefer the reduced weight of a mouse motor with some added performance goodies, but a BB will almost always bring more money. I'd guess about 7-10K on this particular car. Plus the auto trans would be a TH400 as compared to the Powerglide. PG's got a bum rap many years ago that undeservedly reduces the value for a lot folks. Personally, I never had any complaints or problems with them. Had a lot of fun (too much) with my first one !

Nice car and very desirable, I would think to a collector. I would say within 10 percent of his asking price. I just sold a frame off restored X-44 SS clone for in that price range. I would paint it with lacquer and put some red lines on it.

Re: I haven't posted one of these in a while, but this caught my eye.

The seller is quite the wordsmith.

Never driven in rain? Back seat never sat on? Museum quality? Rare one of a kind?

If always garaged in Cali why the paint issues? Maybe lived its life close to the beach?

Tough to call. Most want good paint. Problem is a repaint affects survivor status. So to find a collector that is ok with the paint the way it is severely limits the number of potential buyers.

A 4 speed and posi would make the car more desirable.

IMHO itís not that rare like a Z or Yenko and a repaint would not hurt the value at all. If I was looking at buying I would factor that in at about $10k

And with close to 120k miles on it engine could be a little tired as well as the tranny, brakes and perhaps other things.

Sure there is some exaggeration on the description put this car appears to me to look very original. You are right, the paint shouldnít have a problem if the car was garage 100% of the the time. With the mileage we see on this car we know thatís another exaggeration. A original car with those miles would have paint problems, even if it went home to a garage every night. And those black CA license plates doesnít mean much, just another exaggeration.
Making this car, a newly painted, hot rod would ruin a well kept original Camaro. A 52 year old Camaro that appears to have a lot of the factory accessories should be appreciated for what it is, not what someone wants to make it. A lot of the shows I attend preach to keep these cars as originally possible to maintain their value.
I have no doubts he will get what he is asking.
