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.

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

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.

It looks like there is enough room in the trailer to peek over and behind the left rear tire to look for a build sheet on the tank. That would make a difference value wise.

IMO - looking at the pic - value wise to me assuming the rest of the drive train is original, trans and rear, id say

Umm

"Bumble-Zee"!

Vailed reference to the Pacific Northwest Yellow 69 Z on the show circuit around wash. state in the 1980's that was owned by Don Stowers back in the day.

I concur with Ed's value w/ minor bump for Van Nuys build sheet that is left on the drivers front top of gas tank (or what remains of it)

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

I started a separate thread on that car, as to not take away from this car:

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.

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.

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 noticed that the end of the rear deck lid is striped and has a short spoiler. My 69Z also has a short spoiler with the end of the rear deck lid is also striped. If the paint on this
69z is also original, then at least two early built LOS 69Z's had the rear stripes painted down the end of the rear deck lid from the factory.

Any comments ?

That thought had crossed my mind :-)
