You're not crazy. As long as the car is in say... #2 to #3 shape and
has all of the original parts still inside. What I mean is that
someone didn't at some point cut holes in the door panels, cut out the
radio area for a square box style reciever, and/or any number of
things that would detract from a collector buying. It's hard to find
any first gen F-body for less than $10,000 in my area, no matter what
68' Camaro RS
88' Firebird Formula
00' Mustang GT Vert
I also think that Firebird is worth over 10K to the right buyer (depending
on condition, of course).
It might be a good idea to take it to an appraisor. Just last month I took
my '68 Camaro to an appraisor
because my insurance company needed an appraisal. They only charged $50 and
the guy told me some things
about my car that I didn't know. Value was appraised at 25K, I had it up for
sale last month at 18K, I'm
glad I decided not to sell!
