71? project worth?

been posted for quite awhile.
https://tucson.craigslist.org/pts/d/...093020120.html
I would spend a weekend bolting it back together and make it look like a complete car.
with economy in trouble, it might take a bit longer to sell.
I was talking to a guy that bought a 67 camaro project the other day. seller thought it was worth 10k, everyone that actually looked at it left. So the seller cane down to 7500, and the buyer said let me think, obviously anyone else that looked at it wasnt interested. finally the seller called back and said 5k and he bought it, but it's a complete car with a 350 4 speed 10 bolt . That was running when parked.
This one I just dont see the asking price and obviously nobody local does either. too bad they aren't interested in any kind of firearm trades.....jim

Overpriced even in good times. Iíd say $1,000, if that, right now.

Re: 71? project worth?

gotta agree with you on this one. even if this was in my back yard for sale, I'd be happy at 1000 - 1500 bucks. jim

Re: 71? project worth?

That needs a TON of work............I don't see anything close to 5K there.

Re: 71? project worth?

Bill, you know frieberger and Finnegan on roadkill would have that up and running in 5 days using junkyard parts.
I bet I could be driving that thing in a month doing it all myself and using most of the junk in my stash. jim

Re: 71? project worth?

I agree it needs a ton of work. But as far as a project car goes the rust appears to be minimal and mostly surface rust. Think I would have valued slightly higher. Maybe $2.5K. Maybe these times are the correction the classic market needs and has needed for a long time? Old cars were never supposed to be a rich persons game. Im all for that!!!

Jim, you probably could...........and would.......but not with a 5K buy-in.

Re: 71? project worth?

No photos of the frames, there's a red flag. And I take issue with the description "very light surface rust."


If there's any value to this car, it's parting out the OE sheet metal. Those fenders, doors, deck lid, etc are probably better than any re-pop metal.

Re: 71? project worth?

That'll buff out!!! I agree with all above having started a 68 near that condition in my own area and paid $2500. Not enough pictures of the inside and under though but if checked out not more that $2500. things I do like in that condition, everything is there to be seen and after a minor teardown sandblast and start from there. Fresh start as your not wasting a bunch of good parts to get where you want it on a complete tear down and selling non usable parts. For example if you want a Pro-Tour going all out for new suspension and engine/trans. I'm all for hording parts but parts aren't bringing the money they once were to offset a complete change in direction and supplement a build.

Re: 71? project worth?

my 70 started out worse than that and only took less than 3 months to drive out of my yard. I really doubt anyone will pay over 2k for that around here. jim

Re: 71? project worth?

We don't have anything that rust free up in this area unless it was stored inside and on blocks. Doors and quarters don't look to bad and appears to still have the side glass in it. Might be worth going for a road trip to check it out. If you got it for $1000-$1500 you could clean the wheels up, shoot um, sell um and cover 1/4 of the cost....

Re: 71? project worth?

That is insane. I bought my complete and driveable 71 for under 2000 just over 2 years ago. This was after I pulled the soft top off. 307 car all original.
