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!!!!!!
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.
