General Discussion / Re: red 69 Z, original, but a project on ebay
« on: July 30, 2018, 06:15:26 AM »
I just now got the opportunity to check and see where the auction finished up and it’s no longer available.  My guess is it was still below reserve (which had been lowered to $31k and change) and a off EBay deal was concluded.   I was really curious to see where it landed. Oh well  :-\

You could sell it and put the $ toward the other cars.

Probably $25-30k at least to restore that car (maybe more or less depending on how much work can be done by the owner versus a shop).

I think if one had a shop do the whole resto, added costs would exceed $30K easily.  I had figured a minimum of $20K with me doing the bulk of the work (I usually farm out the engine and tranny rebuilds and things of that nature).  Either scenario should still yield a completed project cost that remains in the black...assuming that one is concerned with that aspect.  Sometimes we build these cars out of love and enjoyment and not the bottom line  ;)

I had a friend pester me for one of my cars, so I eventually relented and sold it to him. Now I get to drive it when I visit him in Florida.

Depending how many cars you are restoring and how much time and energy you have, the only way you may ever get to drive this one is to sell it to a friend.
That thought had crossed my mind :-)

As of a minute ago 51 bids up to $25,725 but reserve not met.  Interesting to see where it lands.

Thanks for all the feedback...very helpful.

I seem to have an affinity for yellow cars without any intention of doing so.  ;)
I have four right now but had two others that I sold.

More interior...with some creative wiring.  Rust seems to be superficial on the floor.  I have the A-pillar moulding as well as the front and rear window trim.  No front glass but the back glass and a set of cherry OE door panels are wrapped up in the back seat.

Floors are good but there is a repair with galvanized sheet metal near the shifter hole on the tunnel.

Consider this; E&E
Emotion -vs- Economics
"friend is nagging"
A lot of guys here might flame me for this but, & I know we are not placing puppies for a good home here, but since your first option is not testing the open market for economic maximization then consider the likely hood of the "FRIENDs" intentions to own and finish and enjoy the Car, i.e. the good charity and benefit to him and the hobby (Giving him first chance and untested pricing i.e.. auctions)  -vs- the chance of a well bought quick flip by the potential new owner.
This is in relation to the pricing gap you and he have already placed a sales value on this car, unless this gap is huge the above could temper your decision to sell to the Nagging Friend -vs- getting it out on the market.

"I’ve intended to build the car for years but the reality is I have more cars to build than I have years in which to do it ;D .  For the right price I’d lighten the load."
This is a familiar reality and the fact you recognize it is HUGE, We only have so much time here to pursue these toys,,,,,

It is like a first step in "PROGRAM!"   -- joke,,,,,"!"

Get some pics we are foaming :)

I understand your point...It's a mixed bag of trying to ensure the car goes to someone who will appreciate it and taking the attitude if someone pays you your price then what they do with the car is of no matter.

So I dug the car out - mostly.  Took a ton of photos but I can't get links from either of the hosting I sites I am (trying) to use to show photos up here.  So Right now I'm limited to what I can attach file size wise.

Memory was a tad faulty.  Forgot there was damage to rear of outer wheel house on driver's side.  Trunk floor is pretty chunky and shows pin holes...so I'd say it should be replaced.

I'll see if I can cram a few more shots up here in the next post.

He Joe,
  Hope you and your wife are doing well. Check ebay, there is a red 69 z for sale on there at this time that might be a car to compare with. It sounds more original but needs restored.

Best wishes,
Grayling
Hey Grayling, fancy running into you here :-)

I will do.  Trying to get photos up right now.
