WIW 69 Impala SS

How much do you guys think would be a good price to offer to buy this. From what I know it is numbers matching with a build sheet. 69 427/390hp. I will verify all the numbers first of course.

If you could get it for 20K you stole it. However, unless the guy that owns it is really hurting for cash (which I doubt considering the background of the pictures), I think the car is worth every bit of 30K. Providing of course it looks as good in person as it does in the pictures. You couldn't build that car for 30K, especially with that engine / trans. combination. My 65 was a rust free Arizona car that I am doing everything myself on in my shop - I have close to 30K in it, just in new chrome, rebuilding suspension, interior, sublet charges for the engine, trans and rear end re-build. I'm not even counting any labor costs in my total. I honestly think (again, if the car looks this good in person) it's well worth 30K +. Just my opinion though, Good luck, looks like a beautiful car!

What you have into it doesn't necessarly translate to actual worth. In a down economy that is even more apparent. Just take that in mind when you offer up a price. It is irrelevant what they spent to get it to look like that.

If you check high retail on NADA classic cars the car is worth $30,750.00 high retail - in a perfect world of course. Any car is only worth what someone is willing to pay. I agree, in today's economy you may be able to get it cheaper if the seller is hurting for money or wants to get rid of it for one reason or another. I also agree that regardless of what someone has invested in the car does not merit what the car is worth. However, if the person buying the car is a serious buyer that knows anything about performing a nut and bolt style restoration, they would agree that most cars cannot be purchased and restored for 20 grand. This car looks incredible (based on the photos) and could never be purchased and restored at this extent for 20 grand. Now, if you are someone that is not concerned with perfect chrome, interior, paint and body, you can definitely get it below reasonable market value. If this car is as perfect in person as it is in the photos, and the seller hasn't filed for bankruptcy recently, I'll be surprised if this car sells for 20K.. If it does, congratulations! You got a great deal!!
