if you ask me they are asking a lot for a color changed non # match drivetrain restomodded 72 RR.
in my opinion there isn't a lot of love for that body style RR.
the biggest thing it has going for it is a 4 speed and really can't tell with the poor pics the real condition of the body. yes it has shiny paint but what is under it? that thick recent undercoating usually isn't a good sign.
i could see paying mid to low $20's for it. i would honestly prefer paying $15K for the Omni GLH-S before mid $30's for this.

So even if it has a solid body till you are done putting the paint color and interior back to original at even what the bid price is you will have far more money in it than it will ever be worth.I have an original Petty Blue air grabber car with V2! - V25 stripes and cannot even get 34,000 and it needs nothing!!!!!!

This orange one is a perfumed you know what. I wouldn't give 20 for it but that just me.

RRdude Street Basin Blue is a love or hate color for me. Your car is kinda stale with it being advertised for like 3 years now. You have your taste on it under the hood. IMHO your wheel and tire choice really hurts the car. Someone just has to see it one day and have to have it.

The blue 72 noted is a beautiful car, IMO. I agree about the wheel/tire choice but then again, that's a personal preference. If I'm trying to sell my car, I'm not sure I spend the $$ to change wheels/tires and hope that I picked the ones that will appeal to a buyer. For example, I think that other than Magnums (which are over-exposed due to being used by so many different manufacturers), Mopar had some of the most boring/ugly OEM wheel choices around. Others disagree. If I were buying the blue 72, I'd put some day 2 aftermarket wheels on it...Keystones, Cragars, ET slots, something like that. Something to break up all of the blue.

RR dude, good luck with the sale. Someone's going to be very happy with that car.

in my opinion.
the car lost the original engine and someone changed the color. to me originality is out the door and irrelevant now. it's just a old hot rodded 4 speed 72 B body now.
the suspension is the same as a E body, so if it's up to snuff it probably is a nice driving car. if i remember correctly 72 RR came with HD suspension and rear sway bars stock. if the paint is good and the body is solid. what can you really buy for $20K that's of comparable quality? the bidding at $28K is a great price, probably shill bids, for the seller, the $30K+ buy it now is a dreaming price.
honestly if it were my car i would get rid of the over the roof stripe, put the running bird decal back by the name plates where it's supposed to be. the proper decal on the trunk. paint the grill the right color and you could have a nice driving car.


i agree on unique 72 RR are a hard sell for bigger $$$. i had a B5 blue N96 air grabber , V21, V25 hood & T lid stripe, J45 hood pins, M26 wo mldgs, M81 M82 ft & r bumper guards, U86 15" RWL tires, W21 15" rally wheels W trim rings 72 RR with matching # engine, trans and complete paperwork that i couldn't give away. yes i had it extremely modified with a 600ci hemi, custom interior and different wheels. but i had everything included in the sale to return it to stock if they wanted. granted when i was selling the market was really soft. but for what i sold it for was not much higher than the cost of building the hemi. the guy who bought it did it for the hemi drivetrain and put it back to stock and then sold the car. to the best of my knowledge the car is in Europe somewhere now.
this is why i posted 71 and up B bodies don't get a lot of love.

Just an observation, but besides the spray bombed engine compartment, and other things mentioned by others, did anyone else see that this was originally a 3spd manual trans car? Odd combo of a 400 w/3spd.

And I agree, change all the silly decal locations, etc. for a better presentation. Simple fix. Must not be a Mopar flipper?
