I word of warning F-bodys did not come with a 5 speed with the 350! So if it'* stick it'* a 305. UNLESS he can prove it got swapped. To be sure check the block behind the drivers side head and it will have 5.0 or 5.7 molded in to it. If he says "oh it'* bored" Throw the BS flag cause if he even found a shop to do it the chances are the motors cyl wall can fracture with that much cut out @ once.
Car'* all that, I'd say 3k for the car and go 75% of what he paid for paint.
It sux when I was looking for my IROC all the BS people clamed.
BTW if it chugs smoke when it starts up it'* fine they all do that, it just need new valve seals.
