Question What's my 69 Impala worth?

I'm new here and wasn't sure where else to post this. I recently acquired a 69 Impala Custom Coupe that turns out to be a numbers matching car. It needs work, but it runs and drives. I was going to make a race car out of it, but if it has some value to it, then I'll find another car. Anyway, here is what I know about it....

1969 Impala Custom Coupe
triple blue in color
72K miles
300HP 350/TH350 and a 12 bolt(open)
A/C, but the parts under the hood are missing
Power steering
Power drum brakes
Turn signal indicators on fenders
Woodgrain interior trim
bench seat car, but the seats are gone
gas/brake pedal trim
bumper gaurds

I'm not sure if anything else on the car was optional. It does have a new radiator, fuel pump, water pump, alternator and gas tank. Otherwise the car looks stock/original. It still has the original shocks on it!

There are no dents in it, but the rear valance is banged up. On a scale of 1-10, I'd say it's in the 4-5 range. Most of the body rust is in the trunk near the tail lights. To be road worthy, it needs a windshield(cracked), brake work(low pedal), exhaust system and seats.

Sooooo, what do you guys think this car is worth?! I'm not really a resto guy, but I'd hate to tear a car apart that has value to it being a numbers matching car.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Seeing as its not road worthy maybe $2500.00 Less if you open the trunk and see the ground.

1000-1500 if you find the right person.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

The trunk floor isn't bad(can't see the ground). It's rusty near the tail lights, where the weather strip is.

Get the car all one color (primer or paint) and a decent set of wheels and tires on it and it makes a world of difference.

I think you're fine to make that car a race car - albeit a very heavy one!
As old Impala's go, it doesn't have any specific restoration value other than keeping another classic on the road where it would be priced like other typical Impala's.

Thank you! Like I said, I'd hate to ruin a car that had some value to it being it's numbers matching. And I know it's heavy, but it would be a bracket car. I just think it would be cool to do something different. Besides, I have cars that are much lighter if I need to go faster, lol.
