Another hot mess, or maybe I'm just extra snarky this morning? 69 Firebird Chevy 383 5 speed dealer car at $63K (WHAT?) in Oklahoma. The two-tone paint never works on these cars (at least for resale) and the Ford scoop looks out of place. The rear window vents date the car and the bling in the engine compartment looks shiny and costly. They took pictures of the interior in parts and that's probably because the front seats are vinyl and the rear is cloth. Probably drives ok and the undercarriage looks clean, but you could have a much nicer car at 1/2 the asking price IMO.

I agree with just about everything you think about this 69 Bird, about the only thing that was done to my liking was keeping the chrome bumpers & the suspension upgrades. Everything else is a minus IMO.

I think that's actually a '67 427 Vette scoop, or at least the shape of it, since they were originally molded into the hood surface. But I agree with your assessment of its looks on this car

80 Trans Am in NY at $12.5K BIN. They pulled it out of storage after 20 years and sprayed it with clear coat to preserve the patina. I'll offer up the first name for Billy and Peggy Sue's car... Merica.

69 Firebird 400 4-speed dealer car in NC at $48K BIN. Really sharp colors in green with a white top and interior. Doesn't say whether or not it's numbers matching or a real 400.

69 Grand Prix in Texas at $3500 BIN. The engine in these cars is the same as a GTO (minus the block code) and it has a posi... that's worth $3500. Ad states it's rusty (doesn't look too bad), but it's $3500 and the dash looks cherry. Has 6X heads, so who know what block it has?

66 Tempest wagon in Oregon at $7K BIN. Put some GTO bling on it and these look awesome. This car has a 6 cyl and three on the tree, so totally theft proof. Looks solid. What a fun car.

Here's one decked out:

Kinda sad... 69 GTO Judge at $55K BIN at $65K in Arkansas. Has a built 70 455HO and converted to an automatic (was a 4-speed). Was an Carousoel red Judge and now in Mayfair maze (which really looks good). Wonder how much it would cost to bring it back to a non-NM car?

It was a Very Early Pattern Judge - 01C build week.
Missing most of everything , then the color change , tough spot to be in at that price range.

I'm all for folks doing their cars their way , but it usually equates to massive depreciation .
No visible depreciation in the current pricing .
Must be a keeper.

65 Tempest 4-speed posi at NR $25K in Ohio. Clean car with a GTO hood looks sharp. A set of Rally I's would make it pop even more. Has a 389 with dual quads. I always wonder how a car like this would run with a stock intake with one 4BBL vs. the dual quads... seems like overkill.

Interesting that the exhaust has been cut off mid-car but the tailpipes remain.

69 Firebird convertible in Texas at $8500 BIN. It is a 69 stick convert, but with that much rust I'd pass on it for a more expensive project. Missing the engine and a lot more.

That 69 Firebird was an OHC6 car, obvious by the hood emblem punchouts and the iron case Saginaw transmission. If Sprint, the rear would be the 3.55 4-pinion. Still doesn't make it worth that money as a parts car, as that axle is the only valuable part, and that might be too crusty for a nicer restoration.

If anyone cares, I need one of those axles dated Oct - Nov 1968, as my car was built mid-December.
