Hello all

I have been accessing this web site for about a year now. I apologize for snooping (I feel like I have been looking in the keyhole to the girls locker room). I have learned an awful lot for all of the board participants.

I need your advice. I need to know what you think a 355 68 Camaro is worth. I went and spent about 3 hours inspecting the car. Here are my observations. Body work is all solid and painted in a color that I really like (Fathom Blue). The owner had the whole undercarriage done, new brake lines, rebuilt brake cylinders, all new bushings in front end, new shocks, bolt in sub frame connectors, flowmasters, ceramic coated headers. The interior is basically all redone the only items that would need upgraded would be the astro vent bezels and the interior trim around the rear window.

The drive train consists of a 355 with a 280 comp cam, eledbrock dual plane intake with a matching 600CFM eledbrock carb, Saginaw 4 speed, a 10 bolt with 3.73 gears, manual drum brakes, and manual steering.

any advice would be greatly appreciated and respected.

Thanks

Alan

sounds like a pretty nice setup. I couldn't really give you a guess as to the price without inspecting the car myself, but I will say that having a solid body is the first thing I would consider looking for. If the modifications are in line with what you want the car to be (non original, hi po that is), then that is also a plus. Good luck to you.

Thanks for the reply. "Boodle"

I have a pretty good idea of what I would pay for this car, as I have been keeping an eye on collector car trader online, as well as here on the site. The current owner seemed to have "farmed" out all of the work on the car and is looking to get most of that back. I believe that the car is a good "starting Point" I would prefer a big block with at least a Muncie and a 12 bolt, but, the car was "acceptable" in it's current condition.

I know from the board that you have a pretty similiar combo (by the way, your car is very nice), so I appreciate your reply. I hope to be a member for a long time. The combined knowledge base of the members is unbelieveable.

well I ended up passing on the car I could not justify spending 19K for it. From keeping my eye out here and on the trader on line adds this seemed way too high.

Carslisle is in two weeks and I am thinking of going down. I went last year to the all GM show and there were a few decent cars there. I'll just have to take the truck in case I need to trailer something home.

You mentioned that you have been looking in trader type venues. I think that a lot of times, these types of sales mediums really tend to get filled with people who are selling at higher prices. I would suggest looking in the local newspaper classifieds. There you can find motivated sellers who sometimes don't know what they have. Also, the people who bother to take the time to put their add in the trader mags, are the type that are really trying to get top dollar, whereas those who put it in the local paper show that they aren't searching for as much money perhaps. I found my car in the Washington Post for a very good price.
