Man you almost gave me heart failure --- at first I thought you said he wanted $800 for the car you described --- that would have been the deal of the century.

$800 for a factory 8 track.... eh, I'm not convinced. Perhaps if that was the last piece someone needed to complete a 100% correct restoration, maybe ---- but it wouldn't be worth that to me.

On the car, just taking a wild guess on what it would need to make it a driver (engine, interior, paint, top, minor body work - if it really is that good), I wouldn't want to spend more than $1500-$2000 on it - if all the other parts are there and the trans/rear end are good.

Hmm... I bought my 66 lemans convertible in july with a running non stock engine and trans (didn't know if it ran at the time) 99.5% complete (missing lemans emblems only) including all interior including the original cigg lighter. I paid $4000 and loaded it up. Had been sitting in a garage for around 10 yrs. Very little rust as it had been fixed yrs before.


This pic is from the day I brought it home.

Not unreasonable considering the condition your car was in. I'm assuming that the car in question has been outside and will need a full interior due to the missing top, and I'm also trying to "leave a little room" to get it done and still be able to sell it to make some money.

If someone has a passion for a certain car and they want to build it for themselves to enjoy, then it doesn't really matter how much it's worth on the open market. Like my 69 - I've spent a ton on that car and I have no delusions. I couldn't sell it for even a fraction of what I've spent building it.

I agree bear.. Until we see a pic it's hard to say exactly except it's worth only what someone is willing to pay. It's a tempest so it has very little value compared to a gto. Can't even compare it to a gto even restored or cloned. my opinion is if it can be returned to it's full glory for 12-14 thousand total it would be worth it because that's about what it's worth when done. Right buyer maybe a lil more.

So he wants 3k for the engine or for 2 k more you get a convertible tempest? Any warranty on that engine? From my point of veiw unless it's warrantied all your getting is a used engine. Don't really care what they say they done or spent. 1 tight bearing or a weak rod and poof...

does'nt show the Tempest just the engine, i picked up a rebuilt 400 for 500.00 and if you buy it used plan on disassembling and specing it before start up. i would offer 3,500 for the lot if the Tempest is in good shape....

I agree. Never had any luck with "just rebuilt" engines that are an unknown quantity. Figure on tearing the whole engine down, checking the machine work, and resealing the whole thing. I've seen lots of bad things waiting to happen inside of "rebuilt" engines....
