Default Am I missing something?

I was looking through some old threads, and found one about an auto junkyard near Phoenix and saw a '66 hardtop "survivor" that they had for sale at $5,200. Am I wrong in saying, that short of this being a special edition of some sort (which they do not advertise), that this is a $1000 car vs their $5200 price?

Survivors DVAP

Just trying to establish real values and looking for insight.

Dude, it's Desert Valley Auto Parts. The same group of clowns that had that so called "restoration" program on History or Discovery Channel a couple years back. They always ask 5X what it's worth.

If it were actually rust-free, I could see $2k. Look at the lower quarter- Looks repaired to me. $500, tops, $1000 if it can be driven as-is.

I live in pphoenix and $2000 seems to be the average price for a survivor car. don't forget if it is a AZ car the chrome around window frames is not pitted and it probably will not need floors or much rust repair. better to pay a little more for this type of car than $$ on chrome replacement and body repair. However $5000 is too much for this car. Gary

There used to be a Mustang-only wrecking yard on 35th Ave/St in Phoenix that I went to a few years ago. An older guy and his wife, Maria, were running it. Then some other guy bought it and was running it. I don't know if it's still in business. But, it wasn't these folks.

I bought my 66 coupe rust-free with 91k miles on it from the original owner for 5700. Definitely I wouldn't pay 5200 for that.

I got my '65 coupe relatively rust-free (a bit on the lower part of one quarter panel) for $6000 and drove it home. It had a newly-rebuilt motor, an unbroken windshield, a fully-attached headliner, decent paint, a hood that closed all the way, and good tires. It even had a trunk lock and front bumper! Looking at this car, I guess I got a whole lot for only $800 more.

No, you aren't wrong. It's not worth $5200. Even in New England, that at most would fetch $1500, maybe $2k.
