    Traveled out to Phoenix and Tucson last week and visited the notable desert valley auto parts. desert valley in NW Phoenix has a pair of late sixties GS models. Assume both are small block, and both are auto bucket seat cars. Both for sale complete. the 69 was a lot cleaner in the rear quarter areas. Both needed a lot of interior attention due to dry rotting of fabrics.

    $7500 for the 69 GS 350

    $3950 for the 68 GS 350... rot through the roof and quarters...

    Wow. Seems steep for a 350, no? That 69 has a 68 nose job to boot. Rust free is a huge plus but you still have to have correct parts to change out. New interior etc. Can't see getting your money back on that one if $7500 is the "starting" point.

    they also had a 69 Malibu roller that was over $6000 - so that probably makes the 69 GS a bargain. It was a lot cleaner than the 68 body wise.

    DVAP has always been way up there on whole car pricing. I have seen non-GS rollers going for $2500+ :shock: :mad:
    I will say this about them, if they don't have a part probably no one does.

    Would guess they would prefer a buyer who would absolutely need to have it. (the 69 GS) maybe that 68 grille could offset the cost of buying some of the correct 69 parts, lol.

    As someone else has said. Typical pricing for DVAP. They are convenient though. What is equally convenient is surfing CL for cars in better shape and less money. If DVAP does have the part then someone here on v8Buick has the part. Most of the DVAP cars are well picked apart unless you are looking for an odd ball car.

    One of the benefits of living in Phoenix / Arizona. A good deal of the older stuff here is gone - due to lack of interest and codes - it winds up in the u pull its for a short time and is then gone.

    A friend of mine went there and got a 67 Chevelle. He just stopped by there and haggled with them instead of calling because he got it for $2k less than what they had it listed online for. He said they weren't happy about it and it took all day but he finally got it. Haha

    Believe they (dvap) had sold at least one, if not both of the late sixties GS cars. They weren't readily visible when I was in there about a month ago. They do now have a pair of 71-72 Chevelle coupes and a 71 El Camino with a big block. The chevelles both have extensive rear window and trunk floor issues (due to vinyl tops) but the 71 Camino may? be an original 402 (LS -3) big block car. They wanted $4500 for it.

    Bought Heater control for 68 GS with air. Took over 6 months to get right parts, and never called back like they told me they would. did finally get the right parts.
