    that car needs the normal 67-69 camaro resto. Ya know replace all the sheet metal besides the glove box door. its nuts to even consider a resto on that. parts is parts but besides the drivetrain what is good? the intake is worth more than the core 455. the Muncie has value. I'd be shocked if the seats are any good. the hood and air cleaner are probably pitted to hell. why bother for more than a grand?

    Sadly,someone will pay his price, thinking they are getting an ultra rare, numbers matching car that will sit in a backyard under a tarp till it shreds to nothingness,and then will be hauled away for scrap. Most likely because the new buyer took on more than they were capable of doing.

    I'm surprised Sawzall Mike hasn't scooped this up by now.

    Cash in hand typically speaks volumes. Just ask Jason Cook.

    I bet if you show up with some loot, you'll get the car, deed to the shop it's sitting at and a perfect donor. Wait - you're not Jason.

    Forget it.

    1972Mach1 Just some guy.....

    Give it a month or two....it'll still be there and then you can offer something reasonable.....If it isn't there in a month, just figure some other guy paid way too much and you wouldn't have gotten it anyway. That's what I tell myself when there's a car I won't give what the guy is asking for, anyway.....

    FYI. I just called the NY State Department of Motor Vehicles. They said technically if the car was obtained in a house forecloser.... the guy doesn't even technically legally own it. He is supposed to voluntarily report it to his local municipality which in turn is supposed to be auctioned off. If he waits longer than a year to report it, he can fill out paperwork, submit to the main DMV office in Albany NY and they will do some homework on last person that registered it and make a "judgement call" if they will issue a Title/NY Registration... Being over 15 years sitting it probably wont be a problem unless the actual owner reports it stolen during the process...She said this isn't even guaranteed though. She did say each state is different so check with your state if you have any interest.... If you buy it and cant register it, then you'll most likely have legal costs suing the guy for your money back....

    Ive bought a few cars without paper. Most recently, that brown 69 GS 350 I rescued. I was able to get paper on it pretty easily. Years ago they made you make a tracing of the VIN but these days they accept a cell phone picture. That combined with the right forms, gets you a new registration

    Says it all. Albeit very rare, this ain't no Mopar, hence why most of us are here to begin with. Neat car and if one had a dream of finding that car, so be it - Would be neat to see it "saved" and hate to see them parted anymore, but saving a Buffalo car is not for the faint of heart. Most of us have been upside down on these cars before, but one would have way more into it than it's worth and virtually no, if any original metal left and that opens a whole new can of worms that's been debated to death.
