Default Value of a 1965 C4?

When I bought my car the guy had a lot of extra parts he just threw in to make room in his garage. One of those things was a 65 C4. I dont know anything about the trans but he did tell me that it ran when he pulled it. I want to do a T5 in my 69 so I posted the trans for trade on the local craigslist. A guy emailed me offering 300 for it as long as its not cracked. That includes a stall converter and flex plate. Again I dont know anything about the stall converter but I assume its a stock stall. Do you guys think that is a fair price? I really dont know I was just hoping to get my T5 out of it.

Huh. I was gonna say $300 for a complete rebuildable 65 C4. An original converter would increase the value somewhat.

If you can get 300 bucks for an un-wanted/unknown condition C-4....take it and run.

If there was any chance you would need it...keep it.

There is no chance I'll need it I want to go with a T5, my only concern is taking the 300 if I could get more for it that could go toward a T5. I'm not trying to make any money off of it I just want a T5 haha. I think I am going to go for it. I talked to a buddy of mine that also agreed I should take 300.

Are C4s really worth that much? I have the orignal C4 from my 67 sitting on the floor. It's due for a rebuild and I just went to a T5. I've nearly given it away a few times in favor of the floor space. Is it worth selling?

Anything over $150.00 is a bonus, unless, of course, it is a 5 bolt. Then $300.00 would be in line.

Wow, Pounce on that $300. I typically give my old ones to the scrap guy.

I honestly don't know. I got the trans with the car a few months ago, stuck it in my garage and haven't looked at it since (its kind of buried in there). I am goin to get it out this weekend to take some pictures for the guy so ill let you all know. At this point I already told him Id do it for 300 so if I found out it was worth more that guy will get a great deal.
