69 Z28 Value
« on: January 29, 2015, 08:47:00 PM »
Hi! I am new to the forum. I just recently bought a very nice Z28 and just wanted to tell you a little about my car and get opinions from you as to what you all think the value may be. It is a really cool car. I have known about it for several years and the owner finally decided to sell. I am now the 4th owner and was able to track back ownership and speak to the 2nd owner that bought the car from a friend back in 1984. Here are the details.. It is 100% rust free with all original body panels. it is an X33 D80 car. It is coded 71 B which I found is Lemans Blue with a black vinyl top. The car has had 1 repaint. The vinyl top was removed and it now has white stripes. I am assuming the original stripe color would have been black with the black vinyl top?? It still retains 100% of its original black interior and it is near flawless. The drivetrain... engine(original DZ), trans, and rear is all numbers matching. It has its original carb, intake, distributor, pullies, etc. It does have a few minor modifications like headers, chrome hood latch, chrome oil pan, and chrome rear cover. All in All... a super clean totally rust free car with a super clean rock solid undercarriage. The paint is also near flawless. Ok guys..I already bought it because I love the car but educate me... Whats the current value according to my description? Thanks in advance for your help!

I am sorry. I thought this was a different forum and there may be different opinions. Again, I apologize. I won't ask any more questions about this car.

Welcome! Pics are the key my friend to an honest appraisal you seek. Many of the same folks on the other site frequent this one as well. Mr. Lillard's opinion is probably spot on and the best you could get without pics. He certainly has bought enough Camaros and seen enough to give the insight he has given. Any other price would be meerly conjecture at this point as this subjective topic is based on so many factors.

Welcome Lemans Z,   No question is a dumb question.. it's how we learn.  Hope you hang around to share and post pics and tell a little about your Z.   We like pics  ;D
Many members here are also on Yenko, as well as Team Camaro.  You can find great info at all three and I think each place serves a particular purpose.  As far as a value..as Bentley said "is based on so many factors".   IMHO....I think your $50K is a good starting point and puts you in the ball park.  From there the scale could go up depending on how much originality it retains such as documents (POP & papers), correct born with drive-line, parts and metal.  Or it could go down real fast if it's a clone, non original drive-line, all after market parts..ect !

Enjoy it  :)  and you've come to the right place if you wanna learn about these babies   ;D

Very pretty car! What's the VIN, or at least the first 3 digits after 124379N?
You might need to put a kit through the carburetor, looks like it is (or has been) leaking onto the intake manifold.

Does it seem like this cowl tag has been removed, and re-riveted back on? What is the ghost paint line in the upper left corner and along the top of the tag?.. Danny

That appears to me to be a 'mask line' where someone masked off the tag and cleaned/painted the firewall, probably during restoration (which is the best approach in my mind) vs removing the tag....

x2,  I'll take the same approach.  Btw is that your '71 383 Cuda ?  Sweet ride !  My second car in high school ('80-82) was a '72 Cuda Plum Crazy Purple, 318, white bucket int w/black dash and carpet and a white vinyl top.  Boy how I wish I had it back  :(

Hi! Yes that is my 71 Cuda. It is a really neat car. It is numbers matching and only had 3 previous owners. Wow.. Your high school car sounds like it was really awesome!
