I got a suggestion from another member of this forum to make a post asking for help valuing my Firebird. My profile has a gallery with photos that you can refer to.
The care is a 1980 Esprit. However, it doesn't have the original engine. It now has a '78 6.6L 400 with an automatic transmission. The body is in great shape--there are no rust holes and it's all steel. There's no bondo and I had the whole body taken care of during my ownership. The hood, right and left fenders, trunk deck, the radiator manifold (I think that's what it's called), and driver's side floorboard have all been replaced. The car runs well--sometimes you have to pump the gas a little to get it into the engine before you fire it, but I'm under the impression that you have to do this for many old cars. There's A/C that blows, but it doesn't get very cold. The lights all work great. The interior is mostly good--there's just a good amount of cosmetic work to be done. The biggest issue is that the dash is cracked a good bit, though there is a cover for it. The carpet doesn't match the rest of the interior (it's sky blue instead of navy). The gas tank, fuel lines and carburetor all got replaced.
I would say it is very close to, if not, good. Hopefully I'm not being biased but I think especially cause of the body it's pushing good condition. Hagerty says that an '80 Esprit in good condition (fair, good, excellent, concours) has a value of $8,700. Keep in mind that it has the 400 though, so that should have an effect on the value.
Any ideas on what would be a fair price for this car?
