81elcamino13 will become famous soon enough
Default New member from Florida

Hello everyone, like everyone else, I am new here. My El Camino is a 1981 3L V6 OHV (229 I think), 3 speed automatic, light blue. It was running a little when I took delivery of it and brought it to Fl in 2011. I had every intention of taking my time and slowly restoring it, but I am probably not ever going to follow through with that since I have little automotive knowledge, mechanic wise, and no longer have the desire to do it any longer, my wife just wants it out of the driveway. The vehicle has 86.7K miles, all original everything as far as I know (it used to be my father-in-laws), the battery has been removed and it has sat now for about 6 years just starting to rust a little.

Just to be clear, I am not going to try to sell my car through this website, but I am going to sell it privately to a good friend of mine. I have come to a dollar amount in mind, but don't want to cheat him or myself on a price since I don't know what the value of my car is to start with but do realize that it is considered an antique.

What is your opinion of my vehicle's worth without photos?

I hope this post is appropriate to post, if not, please school me.

Lew, from Yuma AZ!

Without pictures, not running in 6 years, no battery, probably needs tires, starting to rust.......a SWAG would be $1,500 dollars at best. Don't hate me, it's just my OPINION.

Lew, Welcome from Maryland!
It's hard to come up with any guess at value with out seeing it. And there are a lot of things that would have to be considered, like: What condition is the interior in? is it missing any parts (e.g., center caps or body trim). How are the tires? Dents in the bed or body? All glass intact? Can it run at this point? Has it ever been modified in any way? Does it need a new exhaust system? And so on.

But the folks here at ECC will help, I'm sure.

Lew, Glad you found us. But its sad that you don't have the same passion as we do about our elkys. I normally follow up with saying, Have fun and enjoy NECOA. Be sure to tell your friend about us. Good luck. Maybe he can have the fun you will be missing.
