1970 Cuda WIW?
« on: August 04, 2017 - 02:43:33 pm »
So wanted to get some input on this car.  Up for sale looks like in Chicago area.  Lots of pictures, etc.  Can I get a few opinions and eyes on what you like, dislike, and what you think it may be worth off of the pictures and description?  Any help or opinions would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Resto-Mods like this are tricky to put a price on. I have been following prices on eBay/craigslist and auctions for several months now, and there is no set prices for what they will sell for. The car was a 340 car  according to the vin. I'm not a fan of the aftermarket shifter, but that is just me. The only area of concern is the black coating in the trunk. It looks like someone used a product like POR-15 to possibly treat/hide rust. The rest of the car looks nice in the pictures, and there are some nice pieces like the Wilwood brakes, and QA1 suspension parts. If the car exactly the way you would build the car yourself, then it might be a good deal, but if not, add the prices of changing it. Personally I feel the car is priced a little high considering with some careful shopping, you can find a numbers matching car for a little more that will hold it's value. On the other hand, if you like the eBay car, you might not be able to build one yourself without spending more money.

Beautiful car, I think it's priced 20-25% high, mostly because it's a dealer.
But even at that price, would be hard to build it for that price.
