Since I fixed the frame hackery on my coupe, I am considering selling the frame from under the sedan. It's a nice one..straight, no rot damage even at the #2 mount on pass side. I know what the local dirt track peddler wants to give,and it ain't going to happen...I'll keep if for a backup before it goes to him.

Well it really varies. I bought one that had minor rot at the body mounts only. The rest was mint. $150... Seems like clean ones go for about $250-300 around me. When you can even find them....

I paid $300 for a '86 SS roller with the 3.73 back in 2012.

Location location location.

Here in Georgia depending on time of year and demand, I'll sell one with all steering, suspension and rear end for $200. Other times (off peak), and especially here to board members, sometimes I've given them away free.

If I was still in the northeast, could get 4-500 for the same setups

if it's a clean and solid frame at least $500, they are hard to come by

Monte frames asking price 200-300 all day long around here most of the times you cant give them away.

Most fix and modify what they have these days.

I say 500 at the minimum. I gave $150 for two rear rails when I redid my frame about 4 years ago.

I'd say $300-$500 but you need to note what it fits and what it doesn't. Not all G body frames are the same.
Rear frame rails could go for $150 a piece. A lot easier than a frame swap too.
