found a 64 lemans

Hey guys, I found a all original 64 coupe lemans. It needs a little body work and the paint needs to be buffed out. All the original pieces are there. It has a 2 bbl 326. The guys wants 4000. What do u think? Any opinions would be great.
Thanks
Jesse

Jesse,

Have you been under the car with a flashlight? I found a 65 lemans convertible last week that I could have purchased for under 5K which was a nice 10 footer. When I placed the car on a lift I found the trunk, the floor pans, the frame, the trunk filler panels, all body braces, both outer wheelhouses, both front fenders, both quarters and both rockers were rusted and needed to be replaced.
The guy claimed the car had a frame off in the 90s before his purchase and the car had been kept in his garage since then. The engine and transmission were both leaking and he claimed they were both rebuilt during the frame off and that he had only driven the car 15k miles. There was also a ton of bondo in the front fenders from an accident.

If you inspect the car and only find a few of the issues I listed above then the car may be worth $4K.

BTW, welcome to the forum,

Randy

Thanks, the car was in a tight spot with other cars around it. I am going back in couple of days for a second look. He will pull it out and I can really get a good look at it.

If you can, take a camera and post up some pix. That can "help" determine the overall condition. As 05' said, you're going to have to get dirty and crawl under it and take a good looksy....

The steering wheel alone in that car is worth $1500. If the rest of the car is in good shape, that is a good buy. If all else fails, part it out and make a killing.

Garage
If that car is as clean all over as the photos seem to indicate, it's a downright steal at that price. ---IF---

looks pretty good have them pull it out and get under it, check floors and trunk pans, frame, backs of body panels in the usual spots and around front and rear glass for any bubbling under the paint. If that all checks out i say you got a winner and can get it for 3800-4000..start at 3500 and point out any flaws, don't seem too interested, i bet he will meet you somewhere in the middle.....good luck. Tempest and LeMan's can make great sleepers once you drop a GTO engine and suspension in them and if that car was a 242 (gto) you would be looking at 8-10K to start in that condition.
