End of my rope.
Okay so I have a real SS 70 and I was rocking and rolling with doing a full frame off restoration. Things went good at first then I got screwed from a few people that were “helping” with body work. It set me back a bit and I found a better place to get some work done. Things have come up more and more and the car has been on a full stop for a few years now. So I’m thinking of selling it as a project now. I don’t know if I should get it to a better stopping point before selling it or take it for what it is. Any advice?
So far it’s got powder coated frame, hotchkis suspension, Willwood 4 piston calipers disc, slotted and drilled, all new metal quarters, doors, floor pan and trunk, shaved fire wall, undercoating on the bottom done, 496 roller stroker, forged pistons, comp cam .685, scat internals, with patriot aluminum heads. I have the build sheet to show it’s a real SS. MSD ignition, foose wheels with nitto tires.
Need: transmission, all wiring, paint, full interior, fuel lines and brake lines done, all the glass, full dash and gages.
I would like advice on this. Sell it? Keep it and try to keep going? Find another car done? Was thinking of letting it go for $9k seems low I think but people won’t go for something that isn’t completely done so I don’t know what it would be worth. I appreciate any advice given.
