Those numbers seem high to me. According to that guide, my '72 air LT-1 with every option should be valued at $65K. Not happening, I'd say closer to $55k, I'd take that for mine!

HONESTLY... If you are one who drives your car at all - a 10k discount to a 100% fresh flawless restoration is about right... Think about what it would take HOURS and money wise to put even an infrequently driven show car back to fresh professional restoration level -- tires, battery, maybe front carpets and a drivers seat cover.. plus 20-30 hours min to completely clean, detail and then correct anything chassis and engine bay wise, zinc, zinc phosphates, dichromates, etc.
IF you go buy a car, build the engine, do the chassis, paint it, interior etc you are in WAY over 65k. I could have bought a nice completely there to smog wrong color 72 LT1 ac coupe for 26k. by the time you take it apart, strip it, paint it and then get back together you are in it WAY too deep.

Fittings like this are not for fuel...AND DEFINITELY not on the pressure side.
