Ok I have just found out about a red/red 1964 Corvette. 327 4 speed, original owner, for sale near me. I'm not sure how many miles are on the car and the owner did say it probably needed a new paint job and a new interior. He claims it runs and I would probably be able to drive the car home. He's asking 12k for the car but I'm guessing he's got some wiggle room in there and I could probably get it for 10.5 or so. After some enjoyment out of the car I'll probably flip it. Should I go for it?
So you're saying 10-12k should be a safe price for a running 64 vette? Again I don't know much about it without seeing the car but assuming it's not a complete bucket of bolts what would be a regular asking price for a 64 in need of a few things like I mentioned?
Ok all the info that I had at first was second hand but I just talked to the owner on the phone and he gave me the facts. The bad (possibly), not original owner, motor is not original (about 5k on the new motor). The good, According to him (again I haven't seen it) rust isn't an issue with this car, car is mechanically sound and it's a VERT w/hard top. I thought it was a coupe at first but this is even better. I have to buy it right?
