Not a bad price considering the mod list.

Blue book lists the cars value around $3000. And that'* all a bank will give for a loan. It'* value is higher then that because of the engine mods. With the over bore and pistons that'* about a $2000 engine. It'* worth the price, but I'm guessing it'* lead a hard life. Any buyer would need to go over that car with a fine toothed comb.

I agree, the car sounds and looks sweet on paper and in my experience that means it has been driven hard. Always remember, if it looks too good to be true, it 90% of the time is. There is a catch for sure. Anyone selling a car that has those kinds of mods has been on the internet to research their car and knows that they would make more putting it on Ebay. I would say the owner knows more than he is letting on. Sometimes it hurts to post a low low price on a car. I sell Grand Nationals as a second job and deal with this on a regular basis. You price a car for not what you want (because nobody ever gets that) and not what they want to pay but rather right in the middle. Then work it out. My blue T-type has 27,865$$ in receipts right now (just counted), I would want $17.500 for it but I have been offered $13.500....by my experience that would make it a 15+k car? Anyways, I think he hurt himself by posting it so low. If you know your car and the work that is done to it you price it accordingly. Right?
