    It is a DARN nice car. At first I thought also it was priced kind of high however,,,,if you bought a similar car for less money, how much would it cost to get it to match the condition of this one? I see it could use a new dash pad and the steering wheel is cracked but that's minor.

    Very nice car. I normally don't care for the monkey vomit greens but this one looks good. Price seems a little high but not absurd for such a clean car. Ad says N Phoenix and it looks like SW background but the tag says Colorado.

    You lucky son of a...........:D Lately my view is bare trees, gray sky and white ground.:( Also white cars and trucks. Not the paint color, it's all the salt covering them and it would be a waste of time to wash at this point.

    I never was a fan of that green either but with the white top and interior, it works somehow.

    8T2TOP that pic reminds me of the sunset in "Easy Rider" when they get to the Indian burial grounds.

    I love that color, cant say I agree on the price but im cheap. But still if anyone recalls the fully optioned out like new Sunroof MV1 car forsale for 13,500 out of AZ on the flip from being bought in Cali for$3500.

    That one at 13,500 makes this one look like a 5k car.

    And as well a pretty respectable Super Coupe just sold on ebay for 10,200 yesterday with alot of premium options one would not expect on a SC but the tag showed them.

    Id bet as decent as that paint shows it will show up as a flipper either private or broker at some crazy # like 17,500. Lets see.

    Unless it pops up, this on just sold for 10,200 the more I looked the more I liked it, and its on of the N95 Cali batch and even AC still.

    Every time that comes up ive posted many links to show differently. Over a months time if you do a national CL search you will find many nice V8 F-s in the 3-6k area, people just need cash on hand and a truck and trailer.

    But I do agree many think that way, every mercury monarch/granada owner, every 76 nova owner thinks they have a gold mine.

    Look what nos monarch granada parts go for, they are in a worse pickle then us fmj guys on wasting money.

    Milwaukee has nothing on north central WI for salt and rust, unfortunately.

    I still always have to go back to my theory that a car, or anything else, is only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it. Also, the amount it's worth goes along with how much that person wants it. Something can be "worth" $50K but if nobody wants it, what's it really worth? A painting can be valued at $1.4M but to me, even if I could afford it, it's not worth anything because I have no desire to have it. Just my two cents for what it's worth.:eek:

    Ha ha sure...
    Maybe those 5 year cars with rusted out brake lines,trucks with the wheel lips rusted out,Milwaukee is way tougher on vehicles than out in the sticks of Eau Clair or Wausau etc..
    True value can be placed by the seller but ONLY the purchaser dictates what is being paid..

    I've seen as new as a 2017 Silverado rusting out (at work) already up here in the Wausau area, replacing brake lines on 5 year old vehicles, control arms rusting in half at 8 years old,,,,,,,,,,,,sucks no matter where you're at, lol. Job security I guess.

    What that means is, when I see a 40+ year old car with zero rust, and zero repaired rust, what it's worth goes up to me so $12K for that car doesn't seem so bad. I've seen cars considered too far gone to restore in the SW that up here would be considered an easy restoration. All in the perspective and what part of the country you live in. Because of that, what the car is "worth" there might be a lot less than it's "worth" here. You get what I mean (I hope).

    Also what a fair price is depends if you are the buyer or the seller:D

    U betcha..
    A $100= $1 today..
    Rather pay for clean metal& replace interior than leafs popping thru trunk or Tbars sockets dropping front corner(s)..
    If you or I were selling we'd WANT top $$$ also...

    Nice way nice but a 76 first year bastard car...
    Not sure if I'd like the funky green or the blue? But for 3k less blue is the winner..
    Plus way more options...

    One thing that is annoying,when pre 80sish odometers without the spot for 100k/200k etc..
    So if the car has 44k is that original NOT flipped,then they should say NOT flipped..
