I always loved that color - but without a vinyl top

None at this time. Have not seen the car in years. just know it will need a restoration. Runs and drives but basically has been sitting for a good 10 yrs.

That's a great color, for sure.

To take a guess at your question, I'd say even in perfect fully restored condition, it's worth no more than $45K. If it is a typical northern IL rusty car, you'll be upside down for sure, but being a family-owned-since-new car adds value for you that's hard to quantify. Coming from Nickey adds a 'cool' factor, too

Post 72 Chevelle..

I would suggest taking a good thorough look at the car...maybe a nice cleanup/detail along with fresh mechanicals/tires would do the job. Survivor type cars seem to be very popular...a total resto will be expensive and time consuming.

It wouldn't bother me to drive a car with a few rust spots and bumps and bruises...adds to the cool factor.

Post some photos when you can..
