I would have to say no, not with the engine out, and possibly damaged to boot. 22-five should get you a very nice car in #3 condition that needs nothing in order to be enjoyed. Engine out, I'd have to say no more than 10 or 12k, unless the body and interior are in SHOW condition. If the car is otherwise MINT, and I mean MINT, it MIGHT be worth the $$$ he's asking. Just my opinion!

If put in the same position, knowing it`s your original first car and it`s still all #s matching I`d say yes. You could get the motor done and still be in it reasonably.

Is it worth it?

Hi! First I'd agree with the others about the motor...but we have a saying in our store we own (we sell guitars sometimes real high end ones), if you want it bad, you get it bad. Sometimes it's perceived value. If it was your first car, then by all means deal with the guy on the price, but that sentimental value is worth more sometimes than anything! A woman's point of view of course.

But, with the motor out, how bad is it? Has there been any modifications? Find out about the motor and the car's condition ie rust, etc. I'd say that if no major work to the motor needs to be done, I'd offer like everyone else, 12-15k. A paint job would almost bring it back up to his asking price. Use that as a bartering tool. That's the salesperson in me talking...

Good luck!

Searching for your past..........

Wished I hadn't shredded and tossed paperwork going back to my high school days a year or so ago. If I had kept the NY State registration containing the VIN number from the '67 goat I owned in the early Seventies, I might be searching as you are for a part of my past..........

I'd pay $12,000--$14,000 if you get the numbers-matching motor, even with the knock, and the rest of the drive train, exterior and interior are in good shape. Good luck. :cheers
