    Default What is my 1979 Cutlass worth?

    Thinking about selling my 1979 Olds.
    I really dont know what I should ask for it, maybe $1500.
    Has a 350 ci chevy and 350th.
    Uses 1 quart of oil oil every fill up (250 miles) and I think it has a noisy lifter when the temp gets cool, could be a exhaust leak for all I know, it goes away after the engine warms up.
    Needs a head liner, alignment, cruise inop, tires getting old.
    I fixed a dent on drivers side quarter and rust behind rear wheel and various other surface rust/scratch areas, but only primed them and rust is starting to resurface.
    Body is pretty solid for a Nebr. car. 90k miles.
    This car has never let me down, very reliable, its used as my daily (to work) driver.
    I saved it from the crusher and just hate to drive it another winter because its starting to rust.
    What do you guys think?
    If you need more pics let me know.

    I know its hard to give an estimate with just a few pics and general description, but a rough idea would be nice.
    Thanks.

    If it's not completely rotten, runs and is complete almost any car is worth $1500 now-a-days.
    I would ask yourself, would you feel comfortable paying $1500 for it?
    What does the interior look like?

    Yes, I would feel comfy.
    And... I agree, $1500 for a reliable driver.
    The problem is Im too honest (i.e. list all the problems) and I dont know if most people understand these old cars.
    Im attached to the the old Cuty and hate to get rid of it but, I think its time.

    The interior is pretty good. Needs a headliner and the lower door panels are crusty/flaking, dash is nice, upper doors panels nice.
    The car sat for years so the interior took a beating, somewhat. Steering wheel was total crust, so I replaced it with a spare 73 Chevelle wheel I had.
    More pics for you...



















    Pass. lower deck lid corner needs cut out and replaced.
    I just ran out of time to fix everything and it needs a new home before it gets too rusty from the Neb. winters.

    That's actually not a bad car, great starter for someone.
    Post that up on Craigslist and I'm sure someone will buy it for $1500, heck start at $1750 so you have some wiggle room.
