    People start high when selling, so there is room to negotiate. What would be your offer? Is there more pic's and info about the engine. Some people spend that much for a serious engine build. Just curious to know what's it got. It looks like a beautiful car though.

    350 rebuilt .. not a big cam or aluminum heads ..my offer is the question, don't want to offend the guy, not sure where to start..don't know what the going rate is on this type of car, not being stock .. I know its what someone will pay, just don't want to get over my head in this thing because if you feel you paid to much a car can get on your nerves very fast when something needs repair. .. I know ! ..... just not familiar with Chevy's

    If you cut that price in half, it is still more than the value of the car. I wouldn't pay 10k for that car. It would need to be lower than that.

    This one really rolls down to the condition of the body. If its full of mud than its up to you but probably 6-8k. If its got new panels and the work was decent and the paint is good than 12-16. The 5 speed is nice and some depends on the REAL condition of the engine. They all have less than 5k miles. Can he prove it with receipts? Nowhere near 29.5. You can get a real Z in that ballpark.

    2nd Gens have value but prices are all over the place, anywhere from $10k to $100k+. It all depends on model, originality or modifications and condition, especially the body. Generally, any basic sport coupe with a rust free body, nice paint & interior with a good running engine is going to bring money in the teens. A basic sport coupe will sell for more money if it has quality mods & upgrades. Real Z28's & SS's with matching drivetrain will bring more $$. RS option also adds value.

    Without knowing more details about the car in question it's hard to say but the sellers add does say excellent body, paint & interior. With the mods, I'm guessing somewhere in the mid teens is a more realistic price for this car, high teens at the most but that would involve closer inspection.

    How bad do you want it? It is worth what the buyer is willing to pay as always. But to me it would be around 8 to 10 grand. As someone said already, really depends on mud, also and the quality of the work.... they all look good online. I'm not the kind of guy to make a bunch of low-ball offers but some people just set their price too high.
