5.5% of production. Pretty rare.
nice color combo !!
$20000 for that? Wow.
Not my car!! Was just passing along.
Looks pretty solid to me dude, I’ve got half of that in just sheet metal on my car. Wish I statarted with that. Only thing he doesn’t mention is interior.
Easy restoration. Only $20k. Bwahahahahahahaha.
What’s a fair price for this?
If the sheetmetal is all solid as the seller describes, it's in the $15-18K ballpark. When I see "easy restoration", I want to run away.
I agree on your valuation but I think 20k is a fair asking price. You gotta start somewhere.
Gonna be my first E body. I have always heard if you want an E Body you gotta pay a little more. They are really nice people, and have owned it the last 12 years. I pick it up the first week in July. Might stop by Matt’s and let him check it out on my way back. Here is a pic of the fender tag they sent me.
Awesome, post up some pics when you get it home. Hard to buy something without seeing in person. Hope it’s everything and more than your expecting. Good luck with the resto , it’ll be a looker when done
Who me? I hope!
I should get pretty close to your shop bringing it back, I’ll PM you some details as it gets closer. Your advice is priceless when it comes to restoration.
You’re picking this car up in Maine and taking it where?
This will be a cool car when it is done
Best of luck with your new toy!

Not to hijack, but I really wish I'd had the money a month ago to grab a really nice 71 R/T 340 Auto for $27k! We're talking drive it home and enjoy type of thing.
"The motor is 100% original. It has been 100% rebuilt." ????
He said it was original and rebuilt. Unfortunately the sale didn’t go through. They were willing to take $18K for it, but the higherest I could come up with was $16k. The car was also further disassembled from the original post at this point. Instead I picked up a 1970 R/T SE for half the price that is a four speed car on eBay.
