I have a 1975 Stingray Conv. that I have to sell. I have no idea what
she is worth. I bought her a little over ten years ago. The Stingray
is solid but needs tender love. Rebuilt with 28k miles, new interior,
brakes. Can someone guide me in a direction. I paid $10K. I will be
moving to Key Largo and there isn't a garage.... I would love to see
her go to a good home.
Who invests in Cars?
A `75 that needs "tender love", may or may not be matching numbers
(more then likely not with *rebuilt* motor) can be picked up all day
long for right about +/- $10k in my area all day long.
Here is an example similar to how he described his car on ebay
http://tinyurl.com/2759fw with original motor & fresh paint for $7200
with no bids and the auction ending in a day. Oh and here is one
almost exactly as he described http://tinyurl.com/28nmql for $10k.
I doubt that the original poster is even going to revisit this forum
to see or contact me on my offer, but I made it in sincerity. First
thing tomorrow I'm going to check out this http://tinyurl.com/24kog4
when commuting back to my job in Annapolis. If I can pick-up a `71
with a freshly built `69 427 L-88 for around the same price as a `75 I
doubt highly I'm the one off base here. For weekend beaters I could
care less about NMN if I'm getting the right smiles per miles ratio.
If you are investing in Corvettes, perhaps you should know their
values a little better. NADA/BB are notoriously off base on their
I'm just looking for a weekend beater/thrill ride until I finish my
full resto on a `72 BB ragtop. At the rate I'm going, it will be
right about at it's 50th birthday though.

Seems they are going for a pretty penny now, follow a few auctions and check
out what's selling on ebaymotors for 1975 and compare to your car:
The vet has auto transmission, air condition, radio, no hardtop,
luggage rack on trunk, matched serial numbers. I do not want to triple
my profit. I am looking to break even on $10K a little more. This is a
diamond in the rough! hahaha
Well I just grabbed the August 2006 issue of Corvette Enthusiast
Magazine.. which had their annual pricing guide... Just a sampling of
what these cars sold for at various sales, auctions etc ...
But a 1975 Corvette Convertible is priced at
L48 in fair shape = 10,000 no surprise
in good shape = 18,000
in excellent shape = 31,425
L82 11,450 in fair shape
20,125 in good shape
35,875 in excellent shape... (gulp)
Now just how fair, good or excellent is defined is left unanswered...
Every model increased its value during the last year (2005) also
I just do not think the Original poster should have much trouble
unloading this car for what he paid for it 10 years ago....
