What's this 64 LeMans worth?
Hey guys question (sorry if its frowned upon to ask or in the wrong place)
I am picking up a 64 LeMans and going to do some work and sell it.
389 from a Bonny
Column shift 2spd
Was grenadier red on parchment. SOLID car ZERO rust, paint is patina'ed all over( pretty well gone but still red and worn to primer) (hood is patina'ed blue)
Needs full interior, but has bucket front seat cores.
Thinking about two routes - the 8 out of 10 cruiser route and the patina'ed quick and nasty route.
Rechrome the bumpers
Detail the engine bay and really just make a NICE cruiser. Not a show car, but one you would be proud to drive around and looks very nice.
Leave the paint as is - scour pad the whole thing
Wring the engine out a bit:
Heads (maybe), ignition, carb, exhaust, intake manny, cam and rumbly exhaust
Rake the car a bit
Carpet, headliner and some simple trim, race buckets and harnesses
Nice set of wheels and tires
Both get me smiling to think about but I want to go a route that will have the most financial and time benefit in the end.
Now I know it will all depend on final shape etc, so its hard to say, but a guessed range could be helpful. I have been thinking it could be about $9-$12k on the cruiser and $8-$10k on the rod? thoughts? Thanks guys!
