Re: 1969 Chevelle SS396 survivor on CL

$30,000 without the dents and rust is a little higher than I would value it. I guess the extra $10,000 is the flipper commission.

I’d bet he paid less than $20,000. If you were betting I’d say he found it stuffed into the corner of a garage covered in dust, dragged it home and spent a weekend cleaning it up.

I have nothing against someone trying to make a buck, just represent the car as it truly is. Take a profit, and move onto the next car. If he priced it right he would make more money in the long run and wouldn’t have the headaches associated with trying to move an overpriced car that will sit on the market for a long period of time.

Way over priced for the condition. Missing too many items, has significant rust (that can be seen, not to mention what can't be seen), can also see damage to car. $30K top dollar for this one, if it is #s match and not a 3 speed. JMHO.

As I have to put the stripes on my ELCO after paint, can you point me to a reference on how to put the stripes back on within factory specs?

TIA!

IMO the best thing you can do is get a '69 Chevelle Assembly Instruction Manual (available from most Chevelle parts vendors). It has detailed instructions on proper width of the stripes (some stripes available from parts vendors are too wide and the taper is wrong) and placement. Also get a copy of the '69 Chevelle dealer brochure and look at the pictures of the SS. Looking at restored Chevelle SS's with stripes is a hit or miss proposition. More are incorrect than correct.

Re: 1969 Chevelle SS396 survivor on CL

Its a nice car. Its not a survivor. Although seller does use the term period correct. Even by the sellers admission ths engine has been rebuilt. Also it says 74K miles now andthe engine has been rebuilt. Seems kind of low miles for an engine rebuild. Was it abused? Was it not maintained? Doubt both of those so what is with the rebuild?
Also its not all original. Didnt come from the factory with that mirror on the passenger door.

Thanks Von. I have both. Didn't know if someone had a magic method for installation.

The Chevelle is not worth 40,000, more like 15,000. It would cost 10,000 just to really detail the car.

Re: 1969 Chevelle SS396 survivor on CL

Looking at the shifter ball it looks to have a dogleg to the upper left. 4 spd?

I would buy that for $15,000 in a second. There was a 4 speed 1969 Malibu on CL for $20,000 in about that same shape and it sold for $20,000. I was inquiring about the car 2 days after it was posted, and it was gone. The Malibu did have a nice 454 in it though. I have been looking for a 4 speed 69 Chevelle for $20,000 or under, and not having any luck

This car is worth $20k all day long. If the numbers match and it's all there like it seems to be even with the dent it's high $20's.

The type of person that will buy a car like this will be able to detail it in house for way less.

Re: 1969 Chevelle SS396 survivor on CL

I'd say $30k is not unreasonable for that car.

He's hoping for a sucker at $40k though.

You find any 1969 SS 396 4 speed cars like this for $15K and I end up buying it I will pay you nice finder's fee.
And how does it cost $10K to "detail the car". Inquiring minds want to know.


Anyway, very cool car..just not $40K cool.
