General Discussion / Advice on selling 69 Z/28
« on: Today at 01:59:28 AM »
Thinking about trying to down size my hoard a bit & maybe let go of my 69 Z/28. I was hoping for some advice on how to go about actually selling the car in this day & age? Where would you list it? would you try and fix a few small things first or just sell as is etc.. I think I've owned it 18 or 19 years now & only put about 7000 miles on it in that time.  It's far from perfect, but is still a nice solid  # 3 car. Thankfully, I don't need to sell it, I'm just looking for some info from others that have been down this road.
Any & all advice would be appreciated, Thank you.

Here's what my original stickers look like under my trunklid
Gary you're fortunate that your car still retains the plastic cap on the left hand shock thread - originals seem to be made of unobtanium!

I found one of the shock plastic caps when I cut the left side quarter panel off my new 68 Camaro project last week. It was laying down between the quarter & the trunk drop off.  :)

Damn.. I think I have 2 of those laying on the ground outside my garage, @ 700 bucks a pop maybe I better go dig them up. lol...

Looks like a neat little car. I would love to bring that home if it weren't so far away.

Very cool sir!!

Bought my first car a 68 SSRS 396 in February 1980.  It had just been wrecked right before I bought it & unfortunately I was hit pretty bad in it twice, once in 1981 and again in 1984.  We patched it back together each time and I drove it / raced the car all the way up to 2006 when I hurt it out at the drag strip. I let it sit until September of 2009 & then started on a "1 year" restoration that took me 5 years to complete. lol.. I have been driving it again since the end of January 2015. I did everything except the machine work on my block & heads here at home in the garage.  The car is not perfect, but I will say even after 37 years owning it, it still puts that same big @ss smile on my face just like it did as a kid driving it..

My cure is buying another Camaro or a ton of parts for a Camaro, take two aspirin, go to bed.

lol... My thoughts exactly, I'm up too six at the moment and still on the hunt for the next one.  :)

Yes you can get the side cover off with the trans in the car. I swapped a shift fork on my 69 Z several years back with the trans still in the car. It's tight but doable..

Yep; Of course I'm a Chevy guy.. :)   You didn't know that?   I was planning to restore the Mustang once I finished all my Chevys..  but I keep buying Chevys..   ???

The Mustang is hemmed in between a '55 BelAir and a '55 front clip.. :)

Stang is a one owner (my wife) with original title totally stock except for 500 cfm Holley 2 bbl (on Windsor 351 engine).. shaker hood, off-white perforated seats, fold down rear seat, rear spoiler, hood lockdowns, automatic, rimblow steering wheel...  Oh..  and 'two stage' dust...  :)      Wanna buy it?  :)

Congrats!!  What a nice little 70, I would sure love to add that to my collection..  Very nice sir!!

Glad to you back on the CRG Nick, and hope to see more updates of your awesome (driver) Camaros.

Thank you sir. Believe it or not I finally dug the 69 Z back back out after a 6 year slumber. I've put put 450 miles on it in since the first of the month. I think I spent too many years worrying about all the what if's?? Now I'm to the point of screw it.. I'm going to enjoy these cars before I'm too old or  :P
