How much should I really pay for this car?

I like it a lot but it is a clone. It does have the original engine 350 4 bbl HQ code 255 hp and original 4 spd (M20) and a 12 bolt (non posi) with power disc brakes and power steering.
New interior (standard)
new exhaust
new tires
new rims
new paint
one small repair hole in drivers floor.
Had new 1/4s put on.
No other visible/detectible rust in the body.

thanks for the imput.
Tim

This appears to be a very clean car. Forget the SS emblems that make it a "clone", a '69 Camaro 350, 4-spd, 12-bolt in this kind of condition is probably worth as much as $15K. $12.5 would be a better deal, $10K a steal. Just my humble opinion.

A nice clean car like this will go for 10k-12K. A very nice car, but if any higher than 12k go ahead and get a numbers matching car for around 15K. Unfortunately, very clean cars like this one has had a lot of time and money put into it and owners want to get a price as if it was a real SS etc, and probably worth more to a non-collector. NICE CAR either way.

My 3 cents,

Nice looking car! I didn't know that you could get a 350 without the SS package though. Was that only in '69? I thought all 350's and 396's were only available as an SS, and that if it wasn't an SS the only V-8s you could get were the 327 and the 307 in '69. I don't have my books here at work, so hopefully somebody can fill me in.

He is asking $15,500.

Yes you can get the 350 255 hp in the camaro without the SS package in 69.
The SS motor is a 300 hp motor.

the engine is an HQ code. I don't have any other #s off the car. He admited that it was a clone to me.

It is also originally green.

It is very clean and he did a nice job on the car. I thought the price was more in line for a real SS.
Still thinking about it . . . but If I waite too long, it might be gone!!

Just for reference, I paid $8500 for my 69 396, TH400 12 posi car in January of this year. The pic is at the bottom.
The car you're looking at looks great and better detailed than mine.

I figure I'll end up having 12-14K in it before I'm done, if that helps. I'm planning on freshing up the engine this winter.

Looks like yours is ready to go!

Might be tad high, but if you like it, go for it!
Just my .02

That car would go for 15K easy, here in upstate South Carolina. But this area does seem to get higher prices.

Rachet check it over very carefully floorpans,rear shock mounts etc... but I can tell you that sure looks like a nice car. I just got my 69 done and the engine compartment is not as nice as that one is other wise they are very similar cars mine is a Z 28 clone but happens to be a real X55 D80 car I have about 14,000 in mine and alot of time so I dont think 15 is unreasonable
if it is as good as it looks. I looked around alot and had a hard time finding
a good solid car here in Illinois
heres a pic of mine http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=1556013&a=12322379 MIKE

It looks super! Goodness, I wish mine looked that good. Someday it will... slowly but surely.

Anyway, up here in Northern Va, that is a fair price. If you like it, go with it. Unless you are planning on selling it later to earn money off of it (which you probably still could) it is worth as much as you are willing to pay for it. You and nobody else.

That is a very nice looking car Ratchet. I think he would probably get his asking price or close to it at a show like Pleasanton. That doesn't diminish the fact that 15K is a lot of money for a street machine. It really comes down to what you want. If you aren't concerned with originality and don't plan on changing a lot on the car, this may the ride for you. If there is a ton you want to change, this could be a big buy in for a car that is going to soak up even more $$. If the car fits your bill then go for it! It looks like a very nice Camaro. Good luck and keep us posted. ~ John

nice ride.

Joe G
that was definitely a good deal.


boodlefoof
well, I don't want to be burried in the car to where it wouldn't be worth any more than I payed for it that is for sure.

I am not sure it is the car for me. I have several cars already, but this one really caught my eye.

I have always liked the 69s and have owned several over the years, but I may end up passing on this car for now.

I may regret it later, but it has given me an incentive to start getting my 68 RS SS 350 car together and on the road.
