Value of '68 Coupe

Any thoughts on what this '68 coupe is worth?

It didn't meet its reserve and I have a chance to purchase it.

Thanks

Couldn't tell you on the value, but from the photos it looks exceptionally clean. The interior is really tidy. It's cleaner than my modern car :)

The broker said the seller will go down to $20,500, which may be a fair price for the car. It's one of the cleanest I've seen, but I don't want to spend that much.

It was on eBay a few weeks ago for $39,000. Reality may be settling in for the seller.

Neil is spot on. Great value a $15k. Nice value at $20k because of its obvious rust free heritage and nice restoration. Get the A/C going and cruise your ass off!! C stripes, fog lights, and exhaust tips give a look of the GT option and look great on the car!

Flowmasters and a big cam will make it "sound" bad ass. I can help with further mods to make it "be" bad ass!! All it takes is your money!!

Rob,
You'd be bored with me. I'm more of a Walker Quiet-Flow kind of guy. You know, a guy who drinks beer that doesn't require a spoon!

I was disappointed my first car had a bench seat and no console.
Untill I got a girlfriend!

Bench seats, really? Why do you think these cars had back seats? I know the rear seat in my dad's 68 Camaro was enough to get the job done!
