help on pricing please....


Recommended Posts

I found a '73 240 which is supposed to be straight (no accidents)with very little rust....just the bottom of one door. It's been kept in a garage for a number of years but runs well. The problem is is that it needs paint cosmetic work and some new wheels (it's got really ugly ones now). Unfortunately I can't check the car out myself but was going to have it delivered to my brothers house if I buy it sight unseen and pick it up next week.

Basically I'm looking for a straight car that I can bulid up to as my fun toy to take to open track days and autocrosses and this looks like it might be a good base to start with.

My question is, what would be a good price for this car in good mechanical condition.

You can check the NADA guide or their website (Hemmings).


It depends also on how bad you want the car..

Mine is pricey, 7000$US, but very straight.. Anyway, since these cars are rare in Canada (especially in Qubec), we have to pay the price for a good one.

Well, if it is running and in fairly decent mechanical shape and just needs mostly cosmetic work it could be anywhere from a low of $1,000 up to more than you want to spend. A genuine rust bucket parts car could be worth 500 if it had a lot of original parts. How much is he asking?? That's the main question.
