Looks like you have a good start on the car. You don't give much detail what you have done to the suspension on the car if anything or any pictures. I'm assuming it is a 10 bolt rear end under it. Sounds like it needs most of the interior. Does it have an exhaust system installed? I know things are tight for most people these days. As far as a price is it a 136 or 135 malibu model ? I'm not the expert on price, maybe other will share their thoughts. I have attached a link to the car. I think you need more info in your add.

John:
I'm in Jersey, where the rust issue on cars this age is a real factor. I assume you do not have that problem, so the frame and floors are probably clean. The body looks clean and straight (as best as I can tell from the photos). Your $ may be a little bit high for today's economy, but I can tell you this...I've got a 12 bolt in mine and a brand new black leather interior. My car needs the body and paint redone and I know it'll cost me between 5 and 10K for that. If you were closer to me I'd be taking a ride this weekend with a trailer and some cash. I'd swap the rear and interior in one weekend, address the other details the next, and be cruising in a sweet Chevelle this summer! I know that doesn't help you too much, but that's my angle on it. Perhaps you'll get someone out your way that is in a similar position.

Well its only been several days, it needs more time. It also needs more detailed pics. How many miles, what is the vin#, how fresh is the paint, what was the condition of the car prior to paint, what rear end, describe the underside condition,along with pics,does the motor run,disc brakes,what does it need to be completed? Looks like a decent '72, and around here I could not buy a car, and do what you have done to it for $9,500.00. Having said that, there will be others that think of it as simply a project car that will require lots more of time, and cash to complete, and expect you to come down in price a couple of thousand. By the way, I like the color :thumbsup:

I've noticed alot of people are selling and not buying at this time of year because money if tight for alot of people. You may have to wait before people have money again to buy toys.

More details would probably help alot. Along with the things already mentioned above I am left wondering what all come with it. Only what is shown or do you have things like the headlight extensions, grille, bezels, trim, glass, bumpers, ect... Do you have the interior? Seats, door panels, dash? If so what condition are they in? I think if you cleared up some of the unknowns you would get more interest. BTW-The car looks great! I would think it's well worth your asking price if you have most of the parts to finish it. Good luck with the sale.:thumbsup:

I really cant say on the price, but why not spend a couple weekends and at least get the body back together? I think it would get more people interested if they actually saw a complete body.
Nice car by the way. I wished mine looked that nice. jim

Maybe you should break-in the engine so people can see how it runs.
