Re: whats it worth?

Hard to tell with those photos. If you could add more with the interior, engine bay and better body shots a better estimate could be offered. If it is solid with decent paint, nice inside and runs well with no issues I think it could start around $5500.00.

Wow, sitting in a garage for 14 years. How's it run after sitting for that long?

Re: whats it worth?

paid $2500 for it and have another $250 into it. new battery, fuel pump & filter, oil change, radiator flush, etc. dropped the fuel tank and flushed and cleaned. put all back together and added 10 gal. of premium and a bottle of seafoam and it fired right up, ran a little rough for first 5-10 minutes, I imagine dirty injectors but after that seems to run great with plenty of power.

Wow!
For $2500 you got a really sweet deal.
That price is what I see the heavily worn & weathered ones go for.

Re: whats it worth?

You did very well at that price. I think you could easily double your money, or more.

Wow, for that price you got a steal of a deal. And I'm surprised it ran good after all that time not running. Amazing. Sort of like when Indiana Jones finds an abandoned airplane out in the middle of a rain forest which hasn't ran in 50 years, cleaning a few pieces off and then starting it up and flying back to civilization.
