TITLE and VIN

RWENUTS is right on ensuring it has a legitimate VIN and Title. If it is a Kit or Fiberglass Body a VIN would have to be applied for. Drive train quality and overall suspension installation along with type of Frame (Boxed or Open Channel) makes a significant difference. If its the normal 350 Chevy small block with 350 Turbo and 10 bolt rear end, I wouldn't offer more than 12K. If you really have the LOVE factor for this car, the price is up to you.

Hopefully you get into a decent driver and enjoy the hobby. Keep us posted.

Thanks again for the replies! The car is street legal and has current registration and plates. The engine in the car was basically a 97 cobra engine.

It does run, they started it up for us but it started pouring raining outside so we didn't drive it today. They said we could come back and drive it if we wanted to. The guy was there that does all the maintenance on the car and said its been kept up. The bad news is they want $25,000 for it which is more than we were looking to spend on it.

Yes that's what we thought from the research we've done so far. We would have spent it on steel.

watch the ad

take a ride in it, watch the add and if it doesn't sell in a couple months offer them your best deal. 90 % of the fresh built cars won't sell for what it cost to build, and pro build cars usually won't meet 80% of cost.

Update!

This car was being sold by a co-worker of my husbands and he did sell it for 20,000. Someone loved it and brought it home. Thanks again for the advice .
