What's minimal rust? Where?

Is there evidence of a rustoration in the body?

You know we're picture wh*res around here. Any chance of getting more pictures.

Automatic trans? Looks like buckets..Working A/C?

EDIT: I meant looks like bench, but fingers type buckets. Bad fingers!

The only rust showing is a small spot behind the right rear tire. The rest of the car is solid. There have been some fender/bender repairs since new but it still has mostly original paint. Bench seat and as mentioned earlier, auto transmission (Th400+12 bolt). AC is all there............

My gut on the one you're looking at tells me they're asking around $18K.
Worth... maybe a little shy of $15K?

Here's one I swore was the same car (at first but the mileage is way off) asking $18K which I think is too high.
All original 36K miles. Don't know about the drivetrain.

I like both!

I was thinking $12-14k but need more photos of the car to make a fair assessment.

That's funny almost identical except for the interior color, amber turn signals, and the center caps. I wonder if they are both 400's.

Is that your car Papa, or are you considering buying it?

What condition is the original engine in? In need of rebuild?

The original LS3 engine was pulled to freshen for a restoration that never happened......It ran fine, didn't have any funny noises or oil issues but did have around 90K miles on it.

It looks like a nice car right now so I would say a solid $12,000.

Do we know the asking price or are you just trying to come up with a rough estimate of value?

The prior body damage and rust would scare me a bit.

Cool ride!
