So the other day I got a text message from the third owner of my Plum Crazy 70 SIXPACK Challenger. He stated that he had some documentation for the car and some receipts from the original owner and the second owner.

So here is what he sent:

- Partial Broadcast sheet - about 75% there, missing the lower left corner (keep in mind I have complete Broadcast sheet for the car.
- Receipts from 1973 to 1983 for everything the original owner spent money on. My favorite is the transmission rebuild at 21000 miles. The 672 automatic with the 4.10 Dana had a chance.
- Registration for the original owner
- Receipts from 1983 from the second owner for getting the car on the road again.
- Receipts from the third owner including having the transmission replaced.
- A little blurb on the car's history and what happened to it. It was traded in by the third owner for a Dodge Colt Turbo.

So what are these items worth? The guy would like to get a little something for the effort and I have no problem rewarding him.

What would you guys do?

Thanks

I get to hear a lot of theses type stories doing what I do, so.......

One guy wanted a bottle of whiskey.

Another asked for a ride in the car.

Both of those requests were granted.

A few have just wanted to talk to the current owner & see photos of the car for old times sake.

Very few prior owners ask for money.

Of all those items, the only item worth any coin in my opinion is the build sheet. Since you already have one, I would offer him a 1.5 liter of Grey Goose, or the cash equivalent which is about 50 bucks. It's worth nothing to everyone else. 50 bucks is better than a pile of worthless paper.

I think a $50 bill would be sufficient for what he has. Always nice having a 2nd BS, even if it is a partial.

Worthless to anyone else, worth something to you and it was nice of the guy not to throw it away. I would be happy to flip him $100. You do have a build sheet already but I think it is nice to have another one as well, The other items are cool to keep with the car as well IMO.
If those items were for a car I owned I wouldn't want them thrown away.

Reimburse him for postage and a very nice thank you card .
These items have no value to any one else on Earth, other than the current owner of the car .Since you already have a broadcast sheet , none of the items actually increase the value of your car, money wise, but it is neat to have . He was doing the right thing by reuniting those pieces of the cars history . If he suggested monetary compensation was in order ,
I would think no more than $ 50 at the most ,would be more than fair .
Personally, if I had the stuff, I would send it to you for free , because that is where it belongs . Kind of like re uniting someone with their lost class ring or lost family photos .

iagree

on a side note:
I did the same with some paperwork of an old 69 GTX I once owned. Sold it in 1995 and found old receipts from 1969&up as well as the original bill of sale etcetc in 2009(?) in an old stash of paperwork. I conteacted the guy who bought it off me and got the name of the current owner. Tracked him down got his address and sent him the stuff in an envelope. It was worthless to me and blonged to the car IMHO. The new owner never said or wrote any "thanks" to me.

That is common.

I have mailed out over 400 records to people for cars they own so far.

Many never bother to say 'thank you', less than half actually.

I still do it because it needs to be done & I enjoy it.

I pretty much agree with what has been said. Nice to have the stuff but worthless to anyone else, maybe $50 max. Maybe a Google gift certificate.

The information and paperwork he has does add to your car and would separate from many other cars that are out there.
Since he asked I would be inclined to agree with Sheldon and send him $100 but I would also not hesitate to give him double that and maybe some more.
I know it would bug me to not have these documents for one of my cars knowing that they existed. Money of this magnitude can easily be replaced.
If he is thinking thousands however, I would suggest he pound salt.

The 71 Charger I sold to BS27 had a huge stack of paper with it. Copies of registrations, a timeline of who owned it when etc. I even went through a library microfiche to find a tiny ad in a local newspaper when it was on a car lot in 1973. The more paper with the car the more interesting the car is IMO.

There is a whole world of people beyond the pages of Moparts that dont want the extra paperwork for their car or even know what there VIN says. I sold a Top Banana 70 Charger R/T many years ago and before he drove off I handed him photos from original owner, complete title history search, Galen stuff he shook his head and wouldnt take it from me. I told him this goes with the car and put it in his hand!
As far as the original posters previous owner asking for money Im sure hes expecting a fortune. Who asks for $50?

A car's history from new, even if a slanty, is so interesting to me.....i had a 71 gran couple two owner car....the glovebox was full of purchase stuff, build sheet, window sticker, etc....

When i replaced the carpet i saved all of the paperwork and tags i found underneath it from the assembly line and put them in the car's scrapbook too.

Some people want paid for everything, others are just glad to help others its just the way it is.

One car ive got came with about 200 pics of it throughout its life which is really nice to have but after the fact id not pay alot of ransom for info unless it was really important to the car.

I wouldn't pay anything for it. If he had this stuff and offered to send it to me, I would have offered to cover his postage and give him a few bucks (I'm thinking a $20 in an envelope + a thank-you card) for his time. If he approached me asking for dough like it sounds this guy did, I would pass.

Look at it as if you were buying your SIXPACK challenger, What value would a build sheet have if you did not have one? If it is not worth more then the $20-$50 people are talking here just send it all back That is ridiculous!

Exactly: When you are buying a Six Pack car having a build sheet or not can make the difference between buying the car or not for a lot of people. The extra build sheet isn't a make or break but it is a really nice thing to have. I doubt the guy would expect $1000 but a smaller token would be nice. I myself would have given the sheet to you but if I had one given to me I would want to buy the guy a nice dinner and a beer anyway, that's how you should look at it I think.

At some point in time the old receipts might be as valuable as the sheets.

As fake docs get more prolific and higher quality: old pics, receipts, history all add to making a case for a car to be authentic.

Also these higher end cars being sold more frequently, at brokers, and at auctions all wash history away from a car. That just puts caution to buyers... caution equal lower selling prices.

Here are a couple V-code build sheets I have had for years Posted in the lost and found section no response.


I have Seen where a Guy had a 1 million dollar CUDA and the previous owner had kept the build sheet for it, Previous owner wanted a HEMI CHARGER in trade for the build sheet as HE thought it Brought 10% value to the CUDA! True story...

Honestly the broadcast sheet on a V code is worth several hundred dollars after that id be out. A 2nd partial copy even less, But even $1000 is a far cry from people asking Hemi Chargers or 10gs. This is the reason most people in the thread are stating the person who has the sheet should take what they can get be it $50 or whatever.
Receipts and the unsubstantiated blurb are worth 0.

Some people like to differentiate their cars with option, colour break downs, etc,

I like to differentiate cars with their known history which most often can be determined with repair receipts and ownership contacts. Assuming two restored cars are fairly well the same when talking about model, engine, transmission and colour, the documents can give a clearer understanding of what you are buying. To me, that can add value and be the determining factor if I buy one car over another.

When faced with paying for such documentation I am willing to pay up for such added value to a reasonable level. My level may be seen as generous to some of the posters on this thread and has reached the four digit level for what I felt was critical documentation. The situation that Phil has revealed is total blackmail in my opinion and I would wish nothing but ill will on the individual requesting such compensation.

BS27R1B,

I agree with your thinking.
Most people are in it for the cash only.
That is what ruined it for a lot of us as far
as the Hobby goes. It is like paying ransom.
Hopefully Morty gets treated fairly, it is useless to anyone
that doesn't own the car.
Good luck

Many opinions here and everyone is entitled to theirs. Two years ago I paid $500 for the found buildsheet for my T/A which had no buildsheet or fender tag. I was thrilled to get it and fine with the $500. To each his own.

I agree with other anything from $20.00 to $50.00 seems fair. I have found & given a lot of paper work fender tags etc to others that have bought things off of me for free just to keep it with the vehicles where they belong.

I have been treated fairly. He sent the stuff on his own dime with just the note that I might send him a little something since he had a medical issue that has kind of upended his life. I did not mention this because I did not want people's opinions skewed by this.

I have met this guy before and he's an up and up guy. He apologized for asking for money and I feel he is sincere.

I have no problem rewarding the effort because he could have thrown it all in the recycling (or worse yet the trash.

Since you have already received the documents and it's ONLY a reward vs hostage negotiations, then I agree $50 VISA gift card is a nice reward... my 2 cents....

In this case, the paperwork was sent first on his dime.

Consider sending what you think is fair plus whatever the postage was with a nice thank you card & a photo or two of the car?

there is a BIG BIG BIG BIG difference between NO build sheet and a PARTIAL SECOND build sheet.


if i had the opportunity to buy my original build sheet when i didn't have one for $500. i would probably hurt my arm pulling out my wallet fast to pay the man before he changes his mind.

a partial second sheet and a few repair receipts for my car. i would have to think long and hard before i would pay more than $50 for it.
just my opinion.

Barry - that is what i will be doing. More than the vast majority has said because I agree that the effort needs to be rewarded. This guy is not looking to make a fortune. He is looking to stay connected to the car. If he was in the right position he would be offering to acquire the car. Sadly, he can't and I have no desire to sell it.

I hope to start it's restoration this year and will publish it's history and all the time and cost needed to bring these things back.

Thanks
Morty

If it were a sheet to a more collectable car like your 6 pak, then I'd probably shoot him $100. If I had the sheet and it was your car, I'd send it for free, but probably ask for a nice craft beer from a brewery in your area that I can't get local.

Cracks me up reading this post, mopar people are so cheap. The more documentation one has for their car is always a plus. No reason one shouldn’t be willing to pay what a good dinner for two would cost (couple hundred bucks)for build sheet or similar documents dealing with history.

I know I'll get pooped on for saying this, and perhaps rightly so but I kinda feel like the kind of guys willing to pay 500 bucks for a sheet of paper to go with a car are what has driven this hobby away from enjoying badass and cool cars to investment and greed.

Big big difference there. If he sent it upfront on his dime I would be 100x more inclined to give him something in return.

For sure, those people willing to pay more than you would to document their car are ruining the hobby for you.

People have been chasing and Investing their time and money in Collector cars well before you and I graced this earth. Since we are all supposed to be individuals we all have different ideas of what to collect and what we want to do with it, including the level we want to modify or restore it.

In case you have not noticed the collector car hobby has turned into a very big business. Restoration shops, insurance companies, transportation companies, parts suppliers, parts manufacturers, dealers, auction house, finance companies, car shows, swap meets, TV shows, TV channels, appraisers, web sites, car manufacturers, and on and on.

What do these various components have in common? They are driven by the hopes of generating a profit.

Many people do not like change. To me the HOBBY is much better today than it was 40 years ago, especially if you were looking for parts for your ten year old Mopar.

He did send everything up front on his own dime up

what I fail to understand is why you in the first place. are you afraid of giving too much? do unto others as you would have others do unto you. and feel good about it. no need to tell the world what a great person you are,as long as you know you did right you can "WALK TALL".

If I had it, I would send it all for the cost of postage... what good is it all to someone without the car.

I have the original engine to a 68 roadrunner my dad sold in the 80s, offered to the new owner for free... he never came and picked it up. So 15yrs later it will go in my 68 rr. He still has the car and lives 10 mins away.

Absolutely the opposite. I'm afraid of giving too little.

Several years ago, I bought a Super Bee out of Massachusetts that was advertised with the broadcast sheet. When there to pick up the car, the story changed to "It's at my girlfriends house and I can't get to it right now". If I knew that at the time, I would have never pursued the car. So, $500.00 was deducted from the selling price with the stipulation that if the sheet was obtained, the seller would get the $500.00. Well, guess what, haven't seen that broadcast sheet yet.

I'd say it's more like supply and demand... prices will stay where they are or go higher as long as people re buying.

I think this is more of an example of someone who didn't really read the post grin
