A little about the car its an automatic has the 5.0 with 114,000 miles the motor and everything is bone stock has a fresh custom silver paint job new headlights and windshield, rust free now has new quarters and rockers. The car was originally blue and silver but now its all silver. Shoot me some offers..

do you seriously have stick on hood scoops on it? i'd take those off and beat you with them if i knew where you lived. :kooky:

on a serious note, the right person would probably give you ~4K, seems low because its an auto trans car with hurricane wheels with old tires, put pony wheels on it with new tires and swap in a T5 and you could probably get 5 or 6k. you have to remember its not really a year people have started considering a classic yet. so its worth a bit. but dont expect to get 10k for it.

The door molding would definitely help the price appeal.

Depends on what "restored" means to you. I'm currently restoring mine, and to this point I've rebuilt the engine(331), rear, replaced the trans, all the brakes (5 lug 4 wheel disc cobra setup), new paint, refinished the entire interior (carpet, headliner, re-dyed all the panels, dash, fixed wiring, etc), replaced weather stripping on the entire car, strikers, hinges etc...and I'm not done yet. To this point I've dropped roughly 15k in parts and materials (materials meaning paint, dye, etc).

Is that the level of effort you are talking about, or are you just talking about fresh paint and some weather stripping? Because that will make a HUGE difference in what the car is worth.

That's a far cry from restored man, no offense. New Paint != restoration job. I'd say 4500 ish, as a rough guess, depending on interior and mechanical condition. Saying things are all stock doesn't tell me anything other than lots of old original parts could be on the car.

Your best bet look at autotrader and ebay and that will give you a good idea what the market is looking like.
