    They are problably worth that. Any reason why you want NOS? Make sure the car they are going on is really gonna be worth the money. I used 1500 aorth of aftermarket stuff and it worked great.

    No shell. Restoration shop says NOS for fit and gaps.

    I agree, paying a high coin for NOS parts either needs to be for a high dollar original car restoration (SS/Z) or you simply want original stuff in new condition. I would not buy NOS stuff unless it is indeed new condition. I see too many NOS panels with dents, rust, or other damage which would require work. That's not NOS in my book. However I do know a lot of the reproduction stuff fits like crap.
    It comes down to you, is it worth it to you? I personally would not spend $5k on a RS nose but others would.

    I would say closer to $3k

    Might be worth it... If the deal included a NOS grill surround and fenders.

    Seriously... Seems a little high unless you are trying to build a "perfect" restoration. (Is there such a thing?)

    They are newer stickers hence late stampings. What year car are they for? They likely have the 73 reinforcements and spoiler holes that are not correct for a 1970.

    They might even be re pops with re pop stickers on them? I have never seen NOS metal look that fresh.
