Re: 1969 malibu

To me, the biggest factor is rust. If the car is overall solid and not full of bondo, then you are doing fine even up to the asking price. I tend to see more 69s than any other year at car shows. Very popular year. Not much out there in that price range that is decent.

Update:


Ended up getting the car for 5k. Guy did his homework and saw the other 69 chevelle that’s local. He saw that his car was in much better condition than the other and wouldn’t budge even a couple
Hundred off the price.

One good thing is that I work for the local sheriffs department and called the on call tow truck to tow it to my dads house, since the other tow yards were closed. Anywho, the dude picks up the car and drops it off and said the tow was covered by his boss. I gave him a generous tip and made it worth his time.

Re: 1969 malibu

I think you've got a great foundation there. I've seen a couple triple green Supersports in my day and they really stand out. Toss a floor shift bench seat in there....mm, mm!

Congrats! $5K is still a really good deal for that car. Seller obviously wasn't a dummy & I don't blame him for not negotiating.

Post some more pics when you get a chance. Let's see what you're working with now!

Re: 1969 malibu

Congratulations, welcome to the family! Looking forward to seeing more pictures and perhaps a build thread.

My father tells me I was born 30 years too late.

Here are a few pics! Thanks everyone for their input! I can’t wait to get it running, since it’s been sitting since 2004. Got a couple tires that hold air on it today. There’s a little rust around the wheel wells, not sure if it’s patchable or not.

Oh I will. Probably this weekend! Drum brakes, but I’m planning on discs at least in the front. 10 bolt rear

Re: 1969 malibu

Iíd buy all the $3K Ď69 Malibus (or any other year) I could find in that condition. I think $5K is a realistic number, especially if the motor is not toasted. You can make a respectable driver out of that car for not a lot of money.

Yeah I agree. I think 10k will go a loooong way.

I did have a guy do that with my last el camino, but I had a bottom price of 4000, he offered 3500 and would load it right now. I said sorry, at 3500 you'll have to take home a empty trailer (140 mile round trip) he left, called back a day later and came back and bought it.
Good luck on the purchase, jim
When I sold my 69 I had it advertised online with the price of $25000, a guy called and said he would give me $19000, I said I would come down to $23000, he said nope $19000, I told him to forget it and hung up. Next morning he is in front of my house with a truck and a trailer, said he was there to buy my car and tossed $19000 on the hood of the car and since he drove 200 miles with a trailer I needed to sell it to him for $19000. I told him to get the f%#K off my property before something unpleasant happened to him. I wouldn't have sold it to him for $30000 at that point.

Re: 1969 malibu

I'd of had to ask why did you drive all the way here without the money I told you, then shook my head and walk back inside, you know the guy isn't having a nice 200 mi. ride home LOL. Pretty dumb for the guy not bringing the other 4K if he really wanted the car IMO, BTW cool the OP got the Chevelle he wanted

The guy with the trailer (and too little cash) has been watching too much Gas Monkey TV!
