    I would agree, with some proper detailing that thing will shine like a new penny. I bet there is some sentimental value for the seller, play on that and mention the car isn't going to be modified, just enjoyed, that's exactly what you have been looking for.. Then offer 7000 and see where that gets you.

        20 minutes away is peanuts. Do you know where the car actually is meaning the exact address?

          No address given, but that’s normal on these ads.

          I usually ask what's their bottom dollar, and if it's fair, I pay it. Both of you probably have a bottom in mind. That car looks super clean, but pictures can be deceiving. If it looks as good in person, that's at least a 10k car around here.

            OBO of 5 and work from there. 8 really isn't out of line for a car like that.

              Just received a text, It’s not sold, I have the address and he’ll be home after 2PM. I’ll be there at 1:30PM.

                  There you go.... As I said originally know your disposable income amount and proceed. IMO unless you are able to charm the pants off his wife (lol) I don't expect his number will move much. I am basing that from what the reply's are in regards to the price...

                  And yes, get there early and wait in the driveway.

                  Update up and good luck,

                    If the car is as good as it looks, I would have no problem paying the asking price.
                    It all depends on how badly you want the car of course, and how long you would be willing to wait until another one come up for sale.
                    Being that it's 20 minutes away, I would be there in person ASAP.
                    Around here, that's a $10,000 to $14,000 car.
                    Let us know how it goes......

                      Wow that’s a sweet car, I even like the wheel covers and whitewalls! $8k is a good fair price, I’d offer $6500-$7k and see where it goes, since he just listed it he may not want to budge on price so early. Good luck, I’d love to have that car :thumbsup::thumbsup:

                        If that car is a survivor wearing original paint and interior it’s definitely worth $8k+ :thumbsup:

                          Take your fingers and feel that vinyl top real good looking for any "nubs" that rust can form. You might feel them if there. If there, you will sooner or later have serious issues. IF it has been in a dry situation all these years maybe all is good under that top.
                          Any real good survivor is worth more than a good restored car. Ask what yourself what a good restored one sells for. And remember it is a slant car. And it matters not what it cost to restore anything when you got to sell for example.
                          BUT if you want said model, and generally all you find is a builder needing all or a restored one, what is the $ we are considering?
                          $1500-2500 for a turd, plus how many $$$ to build it OR a well done restored on that costs what? Forget what the seller say he spent on it too. Matter in high end cars, mean little on the lower end models. IMHO
                          I always ask the sellers price, then go from there. If serious bring cash. Then they know you are serious and not another wanna be tire kicker.

                              ummmmm... NO! you always start out lower then asking without lowballing and insulting the seller of course.

                              asking 8k, id talk witht he guy, ask if he is negatable and if so i'd probably offer 6500 or so for it if its a nice car and go from there... if its a nice car then if i had to i'd pay asking but not without trying to get it a bit cheaper first..

                                ^^^There is an art to negotiating price with a seller without pissing him off. Takes some skill and usually experience. And it boils down to his personality type and maybe yours!!

                                  Exactly, and the personality part depends on how both the buyer AND seller communicate and negotiate!

                                      Sorry, didnt realize it was a new add posted late at night.
                                      Anytime I post an add I always stipulate no texts. I dont need a penpal lol.
                                      Good luck!
