Need Input, Good, Bad, or Indifferent
 
Thinking about making an offer on '82, owner wants 18K, at best, it's clean, runs decent, looks good, interior is excellent, clocked 32K.

As you can see, has one of the uglyest, hard to make pretty engine compartments of all time. Cross fire, yuk.........however, it does have a minor inherent oil leak, which I can live with, cheap replacement radio, will make offer of 13K.

Fire retardent suit is on..........:D

There are plenty of them for sale. I would not go more than $15,000.00.

I like that exterior color. Looks clean!

Sarge 07-24-2012 10:22 AM

Clean. Color is great. Always liked the body style although it's a dog power wise. Be cool to cruise in. Do it. :thumb:

Wrong color........and it needs paint.
I'd keep looking, $5k for paint.....and that's only the beginning. On a car that old low miles means nothing, except for resale....if you plan on keeping it or driving it those low miles will come back to bite you in the butt.
Please keep in mind that I'm very/extremely opinionated.
My nephew just bought a 75 convrt, 104k miles for $10,500.
It needs everything but an engine and trans. Its worth after an infusion of another $10k
about $20k.......

I like the 1980 in red or black in restored condition with all receipts. A fully restored car will cost you about $15 to $20K.
A 30 year old car needs to restored.......look for a restored car or a hot rod that has about $25,000 in it and offer $15k
There's nothing special about an 82,,,,,,,nothing!

Very nice!!:thumb: It would be a great to drop in a LS engine it those! love the C3s do it get it!
The oil leak most probably a rear main leak as they used a two piece seal pain in the a$$, I did a lot of those when I worked at chevy dealers

Owner declined my offer, which I had expected. Will continue my quest for a decent C3.

Thanks to all for the suggestions. :thumb:
