We bought a 1970 2000 for my 15 yr old and it needs way too much work. We pressure washed underneath and for rust through by the gas pedal, under battery and below carbs. The guy parked it years ago because the brakes stopped working. Is it possible to get 1200.00 out of this car? I think it is gonna be too expensive to fix for my son. I can take photos and send them to anyone interested. Thanks, Mike in Oregon. 541-840-1471

Welcome. Does it run? I f so, yes, it is easily worth that. It looks very restorable, but if for some reason not, there appear to be plenty of very salvageable parts.

I suspect you could sell it in a day at $1200. Probably worth at least twice that! Suggest you turn it into a learning project for your son. Even if it requires too much work and money he could earn a good profit by taking it as far as he can. Of course he's probably going to fall in love with it and want to keep it!

Well worth it, especially with it being a 2000... engine, 5 speed trans and all that goes with that if one wants to convert a 1600, 2000 grill, late style steering box. Check the engine over carefully before you try to fire it, check the evil L, lube up the cam, etc. Is it still a smog engine? If not, you know someone learned some things over time...

Thanks for all of the replys. I woke up in middle of night worried my kid will get discouraged. He is also building a sprint car to run at the local track this year.

Lemme know if you still have it. I'd come down from Grants Pass this week to have a look.
