So whats it worth ?

I'm thinking of selling my Caprice because its to nice to let my 2 Labs in the back seat and i miss having a truck.......My dogs go every where with me and i do have a Tahoe that they ride in now...

I bought this 96 Caprice with a hurt lt1 motor.....I found a good short block and put all new bearings etc new cam bearings and honed the cylinders and new rings etc etc new ac compressor etc .....i left it all stock but it did have a Raiss air intake and a set of Comp cams roller rockers and LS beehive valve springs already..........car runs and drivers excellent and i'm in love......Car is super clean and straight and near mint...paint is super nice but the tops of both bumper covers need paint.......105,xxx miles and motor has about 600 miles......from Fl. so theres no surface rust underneath...no bubbles....about a $900 stereo system..




About 3 weeks after i bought it i found this link to my Caprice.....you can click on stuff at the top of the link.....

Tim,

When Bob owned the car it was the envy of many of us. He did it up so professionally it was something to behold. If I had not just bought my 7th SS, I would be all over it. I cannot tell you what price to put on it, but everything you have been through, I would say keep it to take your wife for a ride on your victory day. You know what I mean. Best of luck whatever you do, and hope to see you again soon in my travels to Michigan. Good luck man, you deserve it. I say "keep it". My .02 worth.

Price

As Charlie wrote, Bob loved the car and did a lot of tasteful modifications to it. (And did them right).

On the plus side its a rare color. However at the end of the day prices for these cars have tanked. Interest in them has waned, and to many its just an old Caprice.

Personally I think its a $3000 to $4K car. (Take a look at what true SS's are selling for)...add to that its now winter (bad time to sell a hobby car in the rust belt).

If it's worth more to you...get some seat covers and drive/enjoy it. Otherwise post a price and sell it on to someone who wants it.

In my humble opinion, the radio will not add $900 dollars worth of value to the car, in fact its installation is not in keeping with the clean work that Bob did on the car. If its special to you...pull it and keep it.

Good luck with the sale.

Hi,
That car is well known around these parts...I found the thread with all the dirty details, but not trying to ruin it for you, if you put up a for sale ad in that section.

We know what Bob says he sold it for so i think that is what it's worth.

Well you thought wrong. What Bob sold and what i have are 2 different things.....We know Bob traded it in at a dealership so get lost..

Folks,
I have met Tim in person, and everything he does is the same as Bob did----First class. There are not many of us that could go though what Tim has been dealt the past few years, and yet he trudges on as a gentleman with a heart of gold towards everyone. As a site for the SS's, do not drive the price of our cars down, when it should be totally the opposite. We need to keep them alive and desirable. If there are no kind words to say, keep the thoughts to yourselves. Please.
I for one, will probably be stuck with the contents of my stable because I will not part a car to a low-baller. Just my thoughts. If you don't like the thought, get a beer and enjoy the taste. Just sayin'.
