76 Laguna S3 for $2250

I can't remember who was looking for a Laguna S3 on here but there is one for sale in todays Indianapolis IN Craigslist Auto Parts Section. It says original and complete with a buildsheet and doesn't look bad. Sounds like a pretty good deal but not up on prices for the mid 70s chevelles. Any thoughts?

I think that is a great price for that.'76 was the most refined Laguna,in my opinion.

Both nice, black one has those cool captian seats.Black one seems like the better deal, at least from the pics.

Re: 76 Laguna S3 for $2250

Growing up in the late 70's, my sister had a 76 Monte Carlo, my grandmother a 76 Malibu, and my dad a 76 Caprice. To this day, I have never driven or ridden in a car, however expensive, that rode and handled as nice as those late-70's GM boats.

In the mid-late 70's I had a loaded '73 Monte Carlo. It was a nice, smooth driving car. Towed a race car and trailer with it too.

I'm hiding these from my wife who LOVES the Laguna. A friend in high school had one and she fell in love then. The black one looks good!

Re: 76 Laguna S3 for $2250

So why does one have a 350 and one a 400? For one, I thought the S3 had a 454.

Were there optional engines?

Different engine options avaliable.
The s-3 was just a trim package, nothing to do with engine size.
'75 last year for a 454.
'76 you could get anything from a 250-6cyl. to a 400 v8.
'77 6 cyl. to a 350.

I love this color combo.
Wish I was closer.

Re: 76 Laguna S3 for $2250

I'd have to agree on the ride, we have a 74 454 laguna and a 73 SS 454. Both drive so nice compared to our stable of 60's chevelles, camaros, and novas.

My wife actually doesn't like the G-3's all that much but they are growing on her.

Re: 76 Laguna S3 for $2250

Yeah they are comfortable those boats. I prefer a stiffer ride though, especially if I'm the passenger in the back seat lol they make me carsick.
The black onenlooks really nice, awesome color combo!

My son and I went to look at the 76 in Indy this past Sunday. There is a lot of good about this car. Build sheet, AC, Tilt wheel, 400 SCB with 4 barrell Rochester It seems to be pretty much un-touched and all there!

The car needs a floor pan patch, 2 quarter skins and several spots in the roof patched.
