Butchered?? Doesn't matter, you're gonna replace everything on the car anyway. I agree, even in today's market it should do $15k.

Authentication and pre-purchase inspection service still available. PM me for more information.
Still looking for that elusive 76 Nova SS.
People who have nothing better to do than b!tch about signatures need to get a life.

Re: 70 chevelle convertible ss 396

The only reason it is black now is after two years he wanted it black so he painted it, and he wishes he would have ordered it black. This car has never been wrecked. all the papers, protecto plate, window sticker, he say's he might even have the canceled check for the car I do not think in anyway this car is butchered

Are you looking to buy or helping the seller? If you are helping the seller, don't give it away.

I am helping the seller, he does not want to deal with people you know how some can get.

Just for a point of reference do you mind tell what it sold for?

Re: 70 chevelle convertible ss 396

$6k for a numbers matching 70 SS 1-owner convertible? You would be lucky to touch a non-numbers Malibu in equal condition for that. Speaking in generalities, a 70 convertible is by far the most desirable, valuable, and appealing Chevelle ever made in the eyes of most people.

As far as selling it for $20k, I believe your friend got very lucky with that one. Congrats on getting that number, your friend should be thanking you for your help.

Re: 70 chevelle convertible ss 396

Great job. I was expecting $16-18k.

I have seen a few malibu convertibles in similar condition sell for $10k.

That car was bondoed and rusted again. 9 years of midwestern winters and 90 thousand miles are more than enough to make these cars rust. It's obvious from the pictures you posted that the car has been messed with. If someone paid you 20k for it they got hosed.
