Car has no rust (I have pics of under carriage) and the body is 7/10. The engine was running but had a knock. He had a mechanic start a overhaul and mid repairs the guy basically abandoned it and it’s been in his building for years. Now he has to move it and though he’s asking $2500, I think he’ll take $2000 for it.

What do you guys think?

They (/8's) are fun cars when they are sorted out.$2k is pretty much top dollar for a non-running specimen.

Figure on dropping another 2-4K into it to get it up to snuff.

Im with Mike. You will most likely need to sort brakes. The engine knock ect. If you are handy that will save you $ but there are a lot of unknowns after sitting that long. Offer a grand go up to 1500. Thats where i would stop. Buts thats me. Its basically worth what someone will pay and he will accept. A new dash oad is 800 if you can find one. Depends on what you want to do with it. Sorted and looking good running down the road they fetch 4500/5500k
