    Default What would be a fair price for this?

    I have been looking around for a 1970 or 1971 C3 and ran across this one. I love the color and looks of this 1970 LT-1 that has not been priced yet. Just to try to educate myself and to get some idea about the value of C-3s, I wanted to pose a couple of questions to you savvy, experienced forum members.

    1. What would you think is a fair, reasonable price?

    and conversely, just for

    2. What do you guess will be their asking price?

    Sorry, no prizes for closest guess.....except the satisfaction you get for being right....

    Wow! That's a cherry Vette. Really taken care of, lasted the time. I would say it's probably worth $14+k. Firstly, it has an LT-1 in it which is a very desirable small block. Numbers are matching which makes the cheese that much more binding. Interior looks pristene (sp?). Exterior looks great, nice paint job all stock. Under the hood is nice (just seems to be a little surface rust that would be no problem in getting off).

    That would be my best guess. Anybody else?

    That car will bring well over 30k if what they say is correct. Lt-1's Bring a premium and very few were fitted with A/C. Plus it is a bloomington car so that tacks on some more. I am gonna guess 32k

    I am working on a 71 LT1 right now that I'm selling. It has 78K original miles, tank sticker documentation. The engine is being completely rebuilt, new clutch, rebuilt front suspension, new exhaust. The numbers match on the block, heads, intake, distibutor, exhaust manifolds, alternator. The body looks to have never been hit, all body gaps are perfect. Bumpers are replated. Interior is very nice with new door panels and carpet. Seat covers are original.
    The interior is original except for aftermarket radio. The original color was dark green metallic, but it's now dark red, and a driver quality paint job.
    I'm asking $21,900 for this car with the red paint. I'm in the San Diego area.

    If it's what the dealer says and the fact that it is being sold by a dealer...my guess is hes asking $34,999.97. A fair price would be 28k.

    Guys...I'm posting under my husband's user name but this is an interesting conversation to me. We have an interested buyer for our LT1 but feel he's not understanding the value and not willing to pay what it's worth.
    It's been a bit of a hassle.
    It's his first corvette so maybe that's why? He's done
    lots of research but he's still on the el cheap-o side!
    He's had other classic cars too.
    Hope he doesn't see this?! ;-)

    ?
    Am I missing something? I didn't see the ad mention it had AC...
    1972 is the only year LT-1's had AC
    I guess it must have been really hot back then...

    From a dealer it will be > $30,000 I would guess. I paid $25K for my 1971 pictured below with original miles.

    72 was the ONLY year LT-1's were available with AC. The pump you see in the pic of this 70 LT-1 is the factory smog pump, not an AC compressor. If the car is a Bloomington Survivor as stated...a convertible....original drivetrain, etc., it will be listed for well over 30K. Chuck

    Oops. I was way off. But what everybody says makes sense. I told you I wasn't an expert at pricing yet.

    Seeing as it is a dealer, I will venture a guess of $32,900
    AS IS , No warranty!
