My friend says a guy has a 1970- Duster with a straight 6, engine runs good but it is not currently road worthy, definitely a project car. The guy only wants around 80 dollars for it, would it be worth it to buy it then stick it on ebay? Could I possibly pocket some cash from this? Just wondering because otherwise it's going in a Junk Yard.
The car is beautiful, and $80 is not who knows how much...just that you should restore it...you'll definitely get higher profits like that, but if I was faced with the choice, I wouldn't sell it at all :thumbs:
Do you really even have to ask?!?! Go out there and buy it before someone else does. You could definately make a profit off that, even if you made a typo and its $800 its still worth it. Its too bad it wasnt around me, i'd love one of those and i'd keep it.
You must be the dumbest **** if you don't go out and buy it
lol Just making sure, I'll talk to my friend tomorrow. I'm 90 percent sure he can ship it over to me. I would consider having it restored and maybe leanring some off of it myself but lately I have had no spare-time and although we have a two car garage we currently have 3 cars, and I will be eventually getting a car as well along with winter approaching....
see about getting some pics to post... you probably don't want it, and you should send it to my house... :wink2:
You would be foolish not to take it. A car like that restored, gorgeous.
What you offerin :wink2:
But I need pictures first...
I'll talk to my friend tomorrow see if I can't get the guys' number.
Where is it located? If it wasnt too far or atleast costly to get to where I am then i could possibly try and make an offer. Gotta remember exchange rate for Canada also, pics would be sweet though :smoke:
Around La Plata Maryland, my friend was absent today so hopefully he will be here tomorrow. :banghead:
You could catch a great mint for this car off Ebay or at an auto auction. Muscle Car Trader would be your best bet though. Non running rusted out Mopars go for upwards of $5k these days
k thanks for the advice :thumbs:
*Update* talked to my friend today, he's going to try to talk to the guy today if he sees him, get the guys' number and all. If I did decide to buy it for 100 I would just drive it home, which isn';t to bad I think it's a straight 6 and gas prices around here are down to 2.39.
yea, thats a good price for it. id get it an derby it :laughing:
Here's the info the frame is rusted out, but the engine runs good. He said he'd sell it to me so if anyone out here is interested in it let me know, if not I won't buy it.
Point of interest. A Duster is a unibody platform and has no frame, so what exactly is rusted? Still from your earlier description I wouldn't buy it except as a parts car. As for whoever said non-running rusted out Mopars go for $5k, well... Not a Duster like this. Maybe a Hemi Road Runner or a big block Challanger convertible that's been rusting away, but not a rotton old Duster with a 225.
I'm guessing the body, I will have the number of the guy tomorrow, for 125 though would you consider it worth it? I will only buy it if I expect some-kind of profit from it.
As I said, from the description it sounds like it might make a good parts
car. A good running 225 is worth maybe $200 if you pull it, the 904 trans
(I think you said it was an auto) maybe $100. If the engine is a 198 you
can sell it for a boat anchor. The interior and suspension could also
bring you some cash. The key is finding someone who needs these parts and
is willing to pay for them.
Forgot this. Think glass. The glass on them is pretty valuable, especially the rear window, of course the disclaimer above applies.
Is it just me or is the price going up all the time. It started at $80, then $100 and now $125. Just wondering, have you even seen the car yet?
Actually it's just you, it is 100, 125 for the car and to have it shipped here. Started at 80 because I figure it would be right around there, seeing as how other then that it was going to the junkyard.
Alright, thanks for clearing that up lol :thumbs: Still not a bad price (i dont think).
it just depends on how ambitious you are and how much you like dusters...
there are a lot of aftermarket a-body parts out there, including frame rails, floors, and torsion bar mount repair plates, so it can be done...
...and yes i said frame rails. i understand it's a unibody, but that is how they are commonly referred to (really, what else would you call them?)
You misunderstand my friend, if I bought this car, it would be to part it out and make a profit from it. :thumbs:
Sell it as parts? So you can get what, 200 out of it tops? Screw that. Restore it and you can make thousands.
Don't have the time nor funds. 200? From what I have haeard more around 600
He said 200 for the motor alone.... 100 for the trans... and the Glass on them is pretty valuable....
Still a nice car, just alittle too far for me.
Yup, I'll have the guys number tomorrow and I'll see bout it... btw sorry if I came across as a smartass in my last reply to you, didn't mean to tho I believe I did. :banghead:
Dont worry about it, no offense taken lol. Its all good :thumbs:
You really are that stupid aren't you. According to you crusty old Mopes are already worth thousands. Have you ever restored a car little boy, especially one with heavy rust? Let's see, $100 for the car, $1500 for replacement panels, $1000 on drivetrain, $1000 for interior. Then if you're skilled enough to do all the work yourself add 1000 hours of work at $10 an hour. So let's ad it up, carry the one... You only have $13,600 invested and then you can sell it for $7500 bucks. You just made a net profit of -$6100. You'll last about 15 minutes in the real world with those sort of business decisions.
So even though this is a bump, did you ever buy this car or anything?
Nope, my sole reason would have been to strip it down for cash, and I just got too busy with work.
Oh :ohcrap: I would have taken that thing in a heartbeat.
Yeah I just got caught up working stupid 5-6 days a week along with being a senior a essays to write out the ass, so
