I usually check in there once and a while. But to my amazement the C3's have gone up alot? Like for example my 74 L82 with AC, standard Coupe and not a manual went from 16,500 average to around 25,000 am I missing something? Sheesh! Maybe Nada has a typo or something?

Maybe they added up how much to build it from repop parts. I bought a set of HEI weight bushings today from NAPA. $5.00 for two plastic sleeves that you can just barely see.:WTF

I noticed that as well. My car in average condition was $18,500 less than a year ago, but is now listed as $29,519. I thought I read a thread somewhere that stated that Barret Jackson, Kruse, etc. were affecting prices? Not real sure, but market value is still market value.

I wouldn't but a whole lot of faith in NADA values. They are know in the business as sellers books because of their high values. Dealers use them to justify the sales prices on used cars but never use them on trade ins. Those values are inflated. I would look at auctions like Mecum, Carlisle, even Ebay to get some approximate values. Remember used cars are unique in that there is rarely another in close proximity as far as equipment, condition, milage, color, etc. A car is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I doubt though you will find someone willing to pay those NADA prices.

As I see it, you probably have MORE factory options on your car than anyone here, (except maybe TT). It's just that the factory your car came out of didn't produce nearly as many as GM did. Look at it as having someone custom design a kitchen. Exactly what you want, where you want it. Done correctly, it increases the value of the house dramatically. Done INcorrectly, it's kinda like parking a Sherman tank in the front yard. Kinda' cool, but nobody wants it.

:cheers:

I'd pay asking price plus a bonus for selling and make it a daily driver and make sure everyone who even glanced at it knew what it was all about. IF I had the money for all that. Till then I'll dream.
When I win the lottery though excpet a call.
