Well, people all over the internet have been complaining about the overuse of 'barn find' in ads, so here we are now at;

It was just a matter of time I suppose?

I'd want to see some underside pic's before jumping in. twocents
It does look pretty unmolested, but the color combo doesn't help frown
Add the cost of a resto in parts alone and it could get pricey in a hurry. popcorn

I hate the color combo, but that could make a really nice cruiser-type muscle car for someone if the body and interior are as good as they look. Clean it up, do some maintenance work, fix the AC, and drive it.

Triple green = kiss of death. Deduct 30* of value

Don't you think 32k is kinda high? Especially with it being triple green?

WIW? What would be a respectable offer?

Yeah, that's a big thumbs down for what otherwise would be a nice cruiser.

So would you all say prices on these cars have stayed the same or gone down in the last 5 years? I have almost the same car in original paint only better condition, more options like PW, Disc brakes, and I was offered more then his 32k a few times over the years. My car is FK5 on FK5, built in CA with build sheet and tag. Purchased from the original owners son. Maybe the 32k is fair for green? Just tossing mine out there for comparison.

I agree. $25-27k is about right.

Challengers for some reason haven't followed the $$ path that cuda's have IMO. So I'm going to say they've maintained their value a bit more than the cuda's
What is your's worth in today's market?? Hard to say but pic's would help a bunch.
I also agree with comments on other posts that say the market is in the beginning of a downturn or leveling out. I'm old enough to have watched the same thing happen with the market on restored model A's, V8 Fords, etc. which evolved into Street Rods. Some cars will always be sought after
Boss 429's, Copo cars, and some of the hemis etc. Others will drop over time. The market seems to shifting a bit towards the 60-70's cars with the latest drive lines.

I'm one of the few that likes the low impact triple green. Or maybe I should say I don't mind it. I agree that it could be the perfect driver, if not for the price. No room to fix the problem spots, such as a/c and rear bumper and from looks under hood, things have been neglected under there too. I agree, pics of floors and trunk necessary.


Facts are stubborn things.

Lots of coin that needs another $30k in refreshing.

Body side moulding and color combo is a turn off.

I was looking at the passenger side door open picture. Screws for door latch appear to be painted body color. Car has had some paint work done at least in that area.

I think its worth more than $20k.
I think it needs some work but not everyone needs , wants or can afford a full blown restored car
if the body is decent I think i would respray the door panels, some front seat covers , pull the engine and redo / detail the underhood and drive the snot out of it

PS,,,, this all would depend on how it appears in person

So I guess Wings & Purple you see all over the place is a Turn On?
Side Moldings allows it to "Stand Alone" among the other rt/se's
