Northeast PA I havent inspected or run it since 2012 but it was stored in a heated garage since then. Head liner has dropped, but it it as close to a barn find as you will find on any forun. as far as price i cant find anything to compare it to so i dont know. want to be fair to myself and the other party.

Well. the thing you guys dont realize, is unmolested cars are going to be the future, my original thought 20 years ago was a ss rear a 425 hp warranty jegs motor etc. etc. all these cars were done like that cause thats how we did em back in the day. Try and find an original car anymore.

The thing you don't realize is how many literal millions of these cars were built.

MILLIONS.

They were also very popular with the elderly, and MANY wound up in a garage or barn when someone passed away.

In your town is it rare? Maybe. If you looked online there's tons of them out there.

In the end you're offering a non-running car that needs a decent amount of work to get road ready - gas tank/lines need flushing, engine/trans seals/gaskets may need replacement, rubber lines/bushings/parts likely need attention... plus who knows what else.

Then, with the options you list, it's neither a performance/desirable style or model, but more likely what someone wants to buy to do exactly what you describe - upgrade engine/trans/rear and build a sleeper.

If you want the most money you need to get it drivable, then in my opinion you have a $3500 car. Fix the headliner, new tires, cosmetics and make it turn key with ZERO issues and you might see $5500 to the right online buyer, on a good day, if you wait for it.

Yeah, we clearly have no idea about G-bodies around here. You better hold onto it and take it to Barrett Jackson where smarter people shop.

You know what you have.

Pictures are worth a thousand words. I know there are members from PA. But you haven't given a price range or pics. It could be a rusted hunk for all anyone knows.
