I don't know what it is worth, but it is a clean looking car.

Welcome Bob, Pitt is my second home town !
Depending on what was done to it and how original it is, I've seen middle of the road prices from 8K to 20K for your area; it's a broad span if that helps any. Any original paperwork or upgrading reciepts is a big help also.

I don't know if he has any paper work, forgot to ask him but he has owned the car for 27 years, he also has the original hub caps that came with it. They look like a mag wheel style cap.It has a 12 bolt rear end not sure what gears are in it.Still has the stock exhaust manifolds on it.

If its a number matching car the price goes up. If the engine or trans has been replaced the price goes down. Any original big block car in that shape with the original drivetrain would start off in the 20 thousand dollar range and go up.
And welcome to the site.

That looks like a solid lifter, high performance motor. If it is a 1966 427 block it will have a special grooved rear main journal cam in it that was changed in 1967 to date. That makes the motor unique to that one year. It was also the first introduction of the thin wall casting used in all modern big blocks to reduce weight over all. (as the 1965 model year 396 was cast to be a 409 motor and as such has very thick cylynder walls that can be bored out to a 60 over 409 bore or close to a 4.375 inch bore which if combined with a 4.25 stroke gets you a 511 cubic inch motor with 396 decals). You can not tell a high performance head by looking at the 1965-'67 heads as the factory waited until 1968 to add a single lump to the mol;d parting line on the face of the head to denote a high performance (rectangular intake port). But the intake runners are higher on a High Performance head than on an oval port Passenger head; and those do look promissing.

If you think it's worth it and you have the money, buy it. These days it's way too hard to assign a value to things. The car looks extremely nice in the photos. If that's really what it looks like in person, I'd say you wouldn't be doing bad to buy it.

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.
