Question Ive found the Car, should I get it?

Its a 1970 chevelle SS 396. Numbers matching, everythings is original and everything works. Has Power Disk Brakes, Power Steering, and A/C. $10,000 is what he wants for it, should I get it? Its halfway across the US and so its sight unseen.

Looks a bit tatty to me....10,000 seems to higher price, but, I'm not very clued up on Muscle cars!...btw, the intro section is always the best place to start!

Well, the Restored and very nice unmatching 1970 chevelle ss 396's are going for around $17000. Restored, Matching cars are going for around $25000. So $10000 seems to be good but i dont know since its sight unseen...

Doesn't look worth $10k...maybe $6k or $7K at the very most...even that's pushing it!

BTW...any car, being restored properly, will be worth good money...that's the whole point in doing it (and a lover of the car as well...)

Looks good, just as long as you have the money to spend on the car, I say go for it.

I'm sorry I would have to agree with Bav on this one. It doesn't look like its worth $10K. Are you gonna have to get the engine rebuilt and trany? That takes time and $. Just cause it works does not mean it works well.

Not really I bet someone on ebay would pay $12K for that (piece of junk).

I got more pics yesterday of around the car and all the damage. I could really see bondo in some places and the body damage might be worse than I thought.
