    Is this a good deal on a \'74 Camaro Z-28

    I found a clean body with no rust. It has no engine or tranny. The guy wants $1500.00. I think he may budge a little, not sure. The body is straight.............. This has been a third party find so far, I will look it over myself, just want to find out if the price is in the range first.

    Yeah if she is clean it is a fair price... you might even be able to score it for a grand since it is kind of one of the forgotten years of camaros. Not as popular as most of the other years. But I would be really careful on the rust... check the floors especial... the trunks, bottoms of the front fenders love to rust. Also look for cracks where the factory weld of the quarter panels are (very top rear corner or the side windows) as they love to crack. Also if it is unlucky enought to have a rag covering on the roof then you will want to rip some off and check under it. Other areas to look is in the lower corners of the front windshield. There is a plate that is part of the dash that goes across there and like our blazers the windshield leaks and they rust in the corners. It is a pretty spendy replacement too. Hope it is as clean as it sounds and you can pick it up. I think I'm going to have to venture to AZ or NM to find a rust free car for my next build up. I only wish I could be lucky enough to find one close

    Come out here, we have tons of rust free cars. The interior is dry rotted though. The best bet is find a car here and a car back east for the interior.

    That is one of the ideas.... I pretty much have some connections for places to stay in AZ, Vegas, and FL so those are the areas I'm looking at.

    I don't care much on paint or interior... interior is gonna be gone anyways as it is gonna become pretty much like your firebird, on the bare edge of streetable. What are either rollers or just clean bodied plain janer 69,71,72 Chevelles or 70 GTO's going for in your area?

    I bought my GTO complete. The only things missing were the motor and the front bucket seats. Everything else was there. I paid 1,300 for it.

    WOW!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] !!!

    That is exactly what I'm looking for! If you happen to see anything in the area let me know... mostly a clean body is the most important thing! I was looking for a 70 Goat or Lemans for a while, but decided to broaden my search a bit as everything was pretty pricey. Plus I'm not really sure if I would want to cross-breed, but hey it for drag'n. Not show points and other people's opinion.

    I will look around for you since I am looking for another Firebird, so I can race that one (mid to low 8s) as well as having a 10 second street/strip car. Then ofcourse have my high-tech 70 GTO. Its getting EFI, 17s and baer brakes all the way around. Too many projects I know.

    Cool... I'd really appriciate it. I would love a Chevelle or Goat and hopefully can get the 502 block and save up for the destroked rods. I maybe just try and run a POS SBC or something just so I can drive it cause it will probably be at least 2 yrs before i get the parts for the engine together.

    What kind of EFI are you planing on?
