I have found a 69 roadrunner for $12,000.It is in decent shape except for a bit of rust around the rear drivers side fender.Also the front bench seat needs upolstered.The original 383 was replaced with a 440.Now my question:is this a fair price?It does have a 4 speed with the Hurst shifter,but someone welded the shifter to the tranny.I just dont want to get burned and need some advice.Thanks
how much you decide its worth is up to you..if its got rust ... and you want it fixed.. its going to get expensive... look farther... cars rarely rust only on one side... it just might be the bondo patch that vibrated out.. or rusted out and fell off.. welding the shifter to the transmission... WOW i thought i had seen it all.. thats creative...thats almost as good as the 66 lemans that belonged to a friend.. he got tired of header leaks.. removed the gaskets and had the muffler shop weld the headers to the heads.. sure would have been better to carry a header bolt wrench and snug them down a few times the first few weeks of the new gaskets life...a new friend was showing me his 71 cuda.. 383 4 speed... i was looking through what was left of the trunk pan... thinking about what was needed to replace all the trunk, quarter panels and tail light panel.. when i noticed it had a rear end that looked like the one in my ford van.. i said.. OH.. Dana 60.. cool...
I dont know.I have looked for a long time for a 69 roadrunner(had one when I was in high school).My problem is I cannot take off to look at it and cannot send someone.I believe I will pass and save some more money and buy something I can check out.Something just doesn't seem right.He told me that he turned down 13k for it.The 440 he said was a 74 he thought.
my plan is to find a '69 satellite and drop a big block into the thing. it's literally the same car for half the price.
sounds good to me , gonna cost 30 or 40 g. to restore it your self,or just spend 30 to 40g. & buy one allready done.would be a lot less trouble , beleve me !
