Is this a Fair Price for a 1978 Camaro Z-28?

Hi guy's I am in the process of buying a an original 1978 Z-28 with T-tops and a 4 speed. It is loaded with everything. The body is in fair good shape the engine runs and shifts ok. Obviously it needs to be restored but it's in good overall shape. I negotiated a price of $1,500.00. I think thats a good price what do you guys. Any and all comments will be appreciated. Your thoughts . . .

Thanks
Dave

Reasonably clean, original '77-'79 Z/28's bring on average about $3500 around here, I had been looking recently so it's still fairly fresh in my mind. These usually needed only minor cosmetics and some TLC on the mechanicals with miles in the 75 to 90,000 range. Drivetrains were solid and original, bodies solid with minor paint blemishes and only minor wear on the interiors. There are exceptions of course a very clean 50,000 mile '79 sold recently for $2,000. It was resold a week later for over $4,000. I'd say if it runs and the body is solid $1500 would be "ok", really hard to say without seeing it though.

a buddt of mine is selling one close to that year with the T tops and he's asking $2,200 so yea sounds good anything that runs and drives is worth that price now adays

take it to your local mechanic put it on the lift and take a good look at it if thats the car you want then that just sweetens the deal

post some pics if you can

good luck with it

I say it all depends on how much rust and collision repairs have been made. It's reasonably cheap to make that whole car new mechanically. The fact that it's a four speed car makes it more desirable in my opinion. If it's basically a structurally sound car, than I say it's worth every penny if it's the car you want. You see a lot fewer of those cars on the road today and lately I've caught myself turning my head to get another glimpse of a fine example on occasion. I have a deep spot in my heart for those second gen camaros, I've owned a lot of'em, had some good times in'em.

The price of those cars is creeping up esp 4 sp. The 80 rs in the pic above I built it from a rough start I only gave 1300.00 for it. but after tons of work and a 383 install I got almost 10,000.00 for it. But it was super slick with a 3000.00 paint job. I would jump on it for 1500/00!

Do I detect a little blockwork in that paint job? Really nice example of the kind of car that catches my eye.
