whats it worth 1972 malibu?

for around 10 years now my grandmaw has had a 1972 malibu in the garage which belonged to my great grandmaw since well...1972. ive been trying to buy this thing forever and even posted pics on here about 4 years ago i beleive. I finally got the ok the other day and im looking for a fair market value price on it. anyone have any idea? im going to get some more pics probably tomorrow but ill tell ya its a 2 door, baby blue, 307, hasnt been started in 10 years or so i dont know if the motor is locked or not, original tires around 40000 on her. got a few slight scrapes on her. last time i checked there might have been mice inside as well body was solid from what i remeber and all the glass was good last i checked. i figured it would be around 2500-3000?

That price seems reasonable. But as I have said before it is almost impossible to value an older car. As they are worth different amounts to different people. If it was ran through an auction and there were two people there that needed a good parts car for a mega dollar SS car it could bring double that..... on the other hand, if it was parked in the front yard with that price written in shoe polish it may sit there forever....

With that said the price of unrestored original cars are increasing in value at a very rapid rate. Once all of the big block SS cars are snatched up, these "plain Jane" cars will sky rocket.

Do you want to know value so you know how much to pay? or how much you can sell it for?

that was the main problem, not really any way for me to gauge a fair price on it, i was wanting to buy it for myself for a resto project.
