Its probably because most dont have the privlige(sp) of owning a high class restored original or even could afford it if they wanted too. I know thats not a reason, but its easier for some to make observations when they own a car like that.66 MYSTERY CHEVELLE said:I am always amazed at what people think is too much money or what it is wrong that makes something not worth it... just an observation not saying anyone is incorrect, just like seeing what others think.
I dont really have any meaning accept to say that if I had a something like a top class car. I would look at other top class cars in the same light. But I cant afford that nor have I had the luck of getting a deal on a restorable numbers car. If I say, had a Yenko or something then I would think different towards other owners of these cars. But since finding one is impossible, or affording one for that matter is a whole different story. I look at them the same way most others do.66 MYSTERY CHEVELLE said:Not exactly sure what you mean there Chris? Having trouble reading between the lines I guess..
FWIW... I didn't make any personal Observation on the car.. just asked who else was following the auction in hopes of getting some blind observations.
You are correct though.. making observations as to what is too much money or not is all relative to what any one person's personal financial situation is.
My personal observation is that there are many restoration mistakes here, from the wheel covers to seatbelt retractors and belts, tach, headlight extensions and an array of drivetrain mistakes. The Window sticker is an obvious Fake. There is no mention, and so one has to assume... the drivetrain is not original to the car.. and well, it could be picked apart alot more. It's not a fresh Frame off resto. just an older frame up IMO.
BUT... as I said, there are not many 66 SS Verts., 4 speeds, in Black and then add an optional 360hp version.. and it does make it desirable. Is it $40K desirable?? Hard to say... when the top drops, the price rises, that is always the case... I think this car is Nice, not a show car by any means... if I knew it was numbers matching and in the condition it is in or appears to be in... ( a weak 7 on 1-10 scale ) I'd say it is worth $40,000.
Given that it is likley not a numbers matching car, maybe not even original Black car... I would value it at $34,000 plus or minus a grand.
No, not at all.. you don't have to play along at all., just turn the station.drptop70ss said:Do I have to buy one to play along?
What makes you think that ? I'm always skeptical of window stickers since there are outfits that print them up to order after the fact. But what is so "obvious" ?66 MYSTERY CHEVELLE said:... The Window sticker is an obvious Fake. ... Mike Crown
and everyone should be skeptical of window stickers IMO.. the last thing anyone should be using as real source documentation given they are repro'd so often now days and getting better and better all the time.dcarr said:What makes you think that ?
