Default What it worth? 1969 Chevelle ss396 375hp

I have a 1969 Chevelle ss396 that needs total restoration & I'm curios what it could be worth. It's Monoco Orange w/black vinyl top. Black bucket seats & console automatic. Manual steering & 3:55 posi. I have the "born with" engine from the intake to the pan with distributor. The rear end is the original except it has 4:45 posi now. Original th400 is gone & have a th400 from another ss396 but it was 325hp. The car has original paint & has never been wrecked. It has 71,000 miles one the odometer. The car was raced in the mid to late 70s. There is rust in below the windshield & below the back window. Both front fenders have the usual problems & a spot in the LR quarter. No rust in the floor or trunk & with the small problems in the fenders, I wouldn't think anybody would replace panels. Any thoughts? Thanks, Joe

Do you have any pics? Then it will be easier to make an estimate on WIW.

There was a Fathom Green on Green 1969 L78 Chevelle 4-speed survivor at MCACN that had one repaint, but was otherwise incredibly well preserved, original and in running order - and it could be bought for $30k at the time.

This one has original Monaco Orange paint (which I think is awesome, even with the rust) but it would need quite a few dollars to get it on the road. Personally, I would put a new vinyl top and interior in it and do a mechanical rebuild... and enjoy it!! Call me if you decide to part with it.... somebody stop me.

If I remember right Monaco Orange was a SS only color in 69?

Joe, bad idea to post your password, you should change it asap. Here's the photos. I'd say between 16-20k current market?

Yes you are right that paint code 72 in 69 means factory ss. btw we don't even need your password to acces your photos, just the username. And Rich, I think you are way off with your estimate.

I'm new at the photobucket thing. I probably won't use it after this.
It's changed. Thanks for the help & guidance

Thanks, Joe

Could be..... Not a chevelle guy [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/smile.gif[/img] , I guess the big positive for this car is the color and the original motor.

I see that Charley's # match &quot;running&quot; L78 Nova is still available for 19k, so I guess it might be high in today's market.

L78's just are not bringing what they were.
