    This is what I would think or put them up for a little more and see what happens.

    I believe there were only like 4000 '81 4 speed 350's built...From what I have always read...they were only for the Canadian market...but I'm not 100% sure

    I got one too...I like to think it is a bit rare...makes justifying owning that hulk a bit easier...hehe

    Thanks for the input. The 81 is a survivor, with 1 repaint, interior has never been touched and no rust. The black car I had painted last year, original interior and carpet also. I was hoping to see a bit more for the 81Z.

    Its a touchy market...Ask what you want out of it and see what happens. Unfortuantly the later sec gens are still not fetching high dollar, but one day you will wish you never sold it! :D

    Is the 81 pictured here the same as this one... http://www.nastyz28.com/forum/showthread.php?t=179363

    What else did you do besides a paint job? I mean, if you fully detailed/restored the front subframe, engine, underhood, etc., you definitely can get more $$$ for it. Hard to put a price on something with just a few exterior pics.

    No, thats my other 81z 4 speed identical car except for the color, this car is factory charcoal grey, unrestored survivor with 1 repaint in the late 90's. I bought this car the way it sits. Nothing's been touched on it. Still has the factory cat and air pump.

    I'm in Chilliwack, the car was bought new at Smiths Chev in Kamloops

    Whooo... I was thinking twice that amount! If these cars were in Michigan I would likely buy both tomorrow for $12.5K.
    I am used to the BMW world where people buy a new car for $50K+ then spend another $5K for fancy wheels and tires. (A woman in my BMW club once spent $3K to have her wheels anodized to her hair color - bleach blonde!) With a million BMWs on the road now, people are looking for new ways to "stand out" and classic cars are a way to get something which your neighbor cannot. As I learned (the hard way) a near-perfect paint job is a must and it looks like these cars have it.

    If you can take these cars to a BMW, Porsche or maybe even Mercedes meet, they would likely sell for much more. (Unfortunately in this world, the 4-speed is probably a negative.)

    I would start at $7000 and $12000 for those cars.
    As usual, just my opinion.
