He should have left it white, IMO. But, I may be a little biased.

I'd like to know how he got to "$12,000 in driveline parts alone".

All that work and no functional e-brake. WTF?

Look at the last three or four pics on the website, he's got his invoice from Novak attached. $12,590.78

I felt the same about the e-brake! Come on man!!

I'm curious too. What is worth more? A stock example or one with a modern motor and drivetrain?

He obviously doesn't know the difference between a "driveline" and a "powertrain".

That is one impressive invoice from Novak, though.

I'm wagering this one never reaches the reserve.

Wow, nice. Apparently the price adds up real quick when you pay someone else to spin the wrenches! Wish I could do that, my junk would be done already.

Are the leaf springs and u bolts a concern? I am assuming that is rust. Does the disc brake upgrade affect the replacement of the E brake?

I was wrong. Apparently the reserve was covered at around $19K.

Looks to be a 2 horse race right now. I guess we'll see how badly one of them wants it.

I'm guessing $23.5K should buy it.

I used to deal with a lot of antique and classic cars, so I have a fairly good back ground in what they are worth. On the antiques and classics, proving its all original is in most cases impossible, there just wasn't enough documentation that survived to prove this is how it rolled off the assembly line. Taking an old one back from the dead is another story, the parts are harder to find and when you do find them, more than likely the person who has them knows how hard they are to find and what it worth.So figure spending about three times as much on a restoration as you would on modernizing it.

Once you have it back to original, then that's what you have and it will drive like a vehicle of that era, so its not a good every day driver, parades and week end short trips. So for he most part, your target market is collectors or some guy who got laid in one and wants to relive his teen age years, its a small window of buyers, it better be something very special if you plan on getting your money back.

On the other hand, newer parts are easier to find and bringing it up to par with a modern vehicle makes it a good every day driver, with a classic look so it's more desirable and a larger window of buyers.

And for the buyers...men in the age group of 45-55, they have the extra cash. Then take the year for say a 50 year old, today 2015, subtract 30 years, so in our case, 1985. Find the most popular "hot" car from 1985 and that's the one to restore...some guy when he was 20 always wanted that car...
