View Full Version : What's it worth?

05-16-2010, 05:25 PM
I am looking at an 86 Monte Carlo SS. 100k or so miles, mostly original except paint. 305 automatic, runs good but has been sitting for three years. Doors sag and have rust, along with the quarter panel wheel well section. Interior needs work. Paint is crap. What should I offer? It's a friend of mine's parents' car, and I've wanted it for years. Finally they are selling. I was thinking $1000. I don't want to insult them. Thanks for any information.

Make sure the frame is good. If you can, put the car on a lift and see if the engine sags down.

I wouldn't consider $1000 an insult. You could ask them what they would like to get for it first, or have your friend ask his parents.
