Re: COPO clone whats it worth
I did check out the link before, but couldn't tell if the car shown was actually for sale as there was no price available. I thought it was just a comparison.
The 512 block would be "cast" not stamped into the block per ad (probably typo). Agree on pricing $43+ would get you a real deal, vs a Malibu clone. Really depends on what you want to do with it? Drive it? She's ready to go, bet they would come down on it. Find out how long they have had it for sale, consigned? Talk to the owner.
