Sold it on ebay a couple of weeks ago. Went for $8005.00, I probably took a very slight loss on it although I never had the guts to sit down and add up all my old receipts.

Thats a good price, the fun you had with it should make up any dollar loss.

Shiney sells, dull doesn't. The problem is that a fresh paint job on a car for sale is a red flag to a savvy buyer. Make sure you have good pictures of the build to show if a knowledgable collector wants it. But probably half of the tire kickers wouldn't know a $5000 paint job from a $500 one. If the car is straight and needs no body work then most of the labour intensive part of a paint job is already done unless it needs all the jams and inside parts painted too. I've seen some pretty good drivway paintjobs. You might have to buff out a few gnats and mosquitos.

Shiney sells and dull doesn't. If you have good pictures to prove it isn't hiding some hoorer story, I would Earl Shive it. Go get a $500 paint job and be honest about it. Even when you tell people straight up it was a cheap paintjob they will still lean toward their first impression of the car.
Machine shop reciepts for the engine ect. will help. I don't care what kind of a laundry list you have on the engine if I can't have some knowledge that it was intelligently assembled. Also keep in mind that it is hard to sell anything for the next 3-4 months. It is the worst time of the year and definately a buyers market.

Even a cheap Maaco paint job will pacify all the "tire kickers". As someone mentioned, if all the body work is done that's the main costs. I've had Maaco paint a couple cars and they were pretty good and lasted a long time. I always get their "premium" paint job when it's on sale. But -- I do all (or most) of the body work and prep and remove all the chrome/trim before they get it. I've found that the decent Maaco type shops will take more care with your car when you've went to that much trouble AND they really aren't doing much more than spraying it for you. I even supplied the paint on one. The shop discounted me for some additional work because I supplied the paint, but not the full cost of paint (they make some of their moeny by supplying paint). The last paint I had applied by a pro body shop. In all honesty there is little to no difference. At least one of the Maaco jobs I had was even BETTER than the pro because the sprayer made damned sure he got under very nook and cranny. It took several months to notice the "pro" could have done better in a couple areas.

If you really want to know the current value of a car you have to get an appraisal done. There are several people who do such from photos and receipts over the Internet. I do also (so e-mail me if interested -- $45 for members here). I really don't do anything you wouldn't do yourself if carefully checking -- check e-bay, classifieds (but those are ASKING prices, don't carry much weight), and auction results. The difference is it's a third party, so what you think it's worth is more or less validated. In the case of an accident it's good to have one BEFORE HAND (I found out the hard way, but Ins. company doesn't like it when you appraise your own car, had to get another co. to do it). You're not likely to get the full appraised price, but should be close. My car was valued at $10,500 and I got $9,000 from the insurance company. Not sure if the pics of the wreck are in my photo album here or not now... but it was totaled. I had to give back $500 to keep the wreck, but used the engine, trans, front suspension (had just been rebuilt, hit was in rear) and seats from it.

Sell It On Ebay

dont spend 10 cents more on it. just list it with a fly in and rive it home that creates a lot of trust if its got a good drive train.if you do a ebay search on completed auctions you will see you have no problem getting your price. that motor and interior will sell it. body workis easier for most of us anyway and we can pick any color with black interior.67 camaros are going crazy right now they are putting z/28 emblems on em and it doesnt matter to most camaro buyers about whats under the hood.if it was red or black detailed out it will do a quick and i mean quick 15,000 to 20,000 check it out for your self.

Nice Camaro!

Since you are asking for opinions, mine is don't paint it. That way you give the buyer options to pick the color they want. This is especially true since the car appears to have a black interior. This also allows the buyer to put on a different hood, SS or cowl induction or ???, and make their mark on the car before final bodywork and paint.

dont paint it!

Id buy it just like that. And that's what you have to think about, not should you sell it like that but focus on who'd be interested in buying it like that. I don't like red and think its just an awful color so I would fix that immediately but any decent hot rod looks good in flat black. The engine compartment looks really nice so id say let the sleepers sleep. However someone really picky would investigate the rust holes in the door frame a little closer. If there's holes on the surface you'll usually find worse underneath. Maybe not necessarily ready to rot through but still very undesirable. Rust is like cockroaches. You don't really like what you see but you should be worried about what you can't see. All in all pretty nice ride. Id totally feel good about paying 7,000. But like the others said, not complete, no numbers matching, just as basic as can be. Its worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. On the other hand even as it sits if it were a yenko or a copo camaro youd get people knocking the **** out of eachother for a chance at that car. Then who knows what kind of figures you could generate. Then you'd have to ask what wouldn't you give for this car!
