Need Car ppl help

I mow a ladies yard that has a 1967 Camaro. She wants to sell it but doesnt want to get screwed on it either. She is a widowed 70 something yr old. Just wanted to see if any of you knew about how much this car could be worth. She is the original owner. I dont know alot about the car but this is all she told me about it.

1967 Chevrolet Camaro - Original Owner
Hardtop Sports Coupe
327 V8 engine
76,500 original miles

The car is not an "SS" or "RS"
Original black interior is in excellent condition
It had factory A/C
The exterior pain is not in need of reconditioning as the car was repainted in 2004 to match its original color.
Every tag put on the car has been saved along with registration receipts, original bill of sale, owners manual and copy of invoice reflecting any work done on the car.
In 2004 there was slight restoration done with pictures taken while the restoration process was taking place. Ill try to get pictures from her.

I know I need to post this in a Camaro car forum but just wanted to hit my zx10 brothers up first.

Old people have no concept of modern inflation. Offer her $100 and a ride to bingo.

Hello , i 'am a mechanic and have specialized in restoring old camaro's for around 30 years now . the car could be worth very little ( 1000 ) or a lot ( 20000 ) , all depends on the condition of it . I inspected a 1956 t bird last week , asking 22000 but worth only 12000 because someone painted and replaced the interior with the wrong color ! . if the frame is gone , it would cost more money to replace it than to buy a car that is better . Send me some pictures , i could be interested . PM me

it's NICE RIDING A ZX10R

I'll try to get some pictures soon. All she had was some Polaroids of it. She had a guy come by and offer her $15,000 but she thinks she can get $20-25K. As far as I know the frame and everything is in great shape. Been garage kept for as long as I know. I know how it goes looks can be deceiving.

She will be better off getting it appraised , there are many people that does that for a living for older cars and make sure they have some type of history not some Joe blow.

The Truth

I know this is not what your talking about but insurance appraised it at $40k. I know its not worth anywhere close to that. :headshake

if insurance put it at $40k, I would say street value is probably $20k. Thats without really knowing anything about the car though. Thing about it though, Barrett-Jackson has done a nice job inflating the shit out of Muscle Cars too. These cars are what people are willing to pay for them at this point and at what point someone is willing to let go of them

I'm not trying to buy it. I'm trying to help her sell it without her getting too ripped off. I was just putting it on here to get some dialogue started about it. Maybe learn a thing or two before I put it on the CamEro boards and feed the sharks!!
