Sharp '67 Resto Mod

A friend of mine is looking at this one. I've already warned him that it won't be cheap since a dealer is selling it, but I was hoping you folks could help me with some opinions on market value.

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

Too bad there is no pictures of it up on a hoist to check out the suspension, exhaust etc. Nice looking car. It's harder to put a price on a resto mod. You have to find someone that likes the mods that are done and what they are willing to pay for the work done. I just looked online and they are asking $39,900.00.

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

What makes it a resto mod??? I see a clean Malibu with a run of the mill 350.

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

Looks like a nice build. But as was said, without any bottomside pics, it makes one wonder why they didn't include any.

If someone wants a car like this, the first thing they would have to ask is, "what would it take to duplicate it"? That's when reality sets in and you realize that when dealing with Customs, Resto Mods, and Hot Rods, you have to go into the project with the realization that it won't be worth, monetarily, what you put into it.

From what I have seen at local outdoor car shows and get to gathers, that car would get attention if it looks as good in person as it does in the pictures. But that being said, aside from being really nice looking, there is nothing about it that stands out from multitudes of other RestoMods or Custom Restorations.

I guess because it has had a "Resto" and it has "Modern" upgrades like a fuel injected crate engine.

Isn't a Resto Mod a car that has been restored, but is not "correct", as in being restored back to it's original condition when new?

A resto mod from what I always interpreted is a car that's been restored but has modern suspension, modern drive line and custom interior.

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

I was having a conversation with my buddy the other day on what to call a car.
He sells at barrett Jackson and he learned to call these things customs. Its more all encompassing, when you build a car with as emblems and call it a clone, or tribute then you get the nitpickers sayings it's missing a sticker here, wrong trim there, reproduction this or that. A restomod is kind of generic too is it a restoration or modified?
That 67 is a nice car. Jim

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

BJ lists everything that isn't original stock as "custom". Seems to work for them.

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

I use 'restomod' generically if the car has been modernized in any meaningful way.

If it had a LS based engine with overdrive AC and other modern conveniences I would agree with you. It's just a mild custom

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

Are those VIN tag rivets correct? Should be rosette?

In all the excitement of giving the car a proper label we all missed the wrong rivets on the vin tag
