1973 280c low mile find

I have found a lipstick red 1973 280c with 56k miles-original owner passed away..........it is near pristine, everything works, interior is perfect, some imperfections in paint-minor, tires have age cracks and need replaced-car runs perfect. Whats it worth roughly?

Low miles is nice but not as relevant as rust and condition other than miles. Pictures, location, etc.

We can't give you estimates like this. Pictures don't show the little important things. how longs it been sitting? does it run? Paint problems are like cancer, barely noticeable and then flame up over night.. Car is 37 years old so will need thousands of dollars to get into nice condition...

What's it worth to you? These are investment cars and they're not particularly collectable so there is no ball park. If you're buying for your own enjoyment, and you don't know much about these cars, then buy the best one that you can find.

If you want to get a rough idea of what it's worth, look at what they're selling for on eBay.

With best regards

Al
