Default Mint condition 76 El Camino SS for sale

Hey guys I am new to the forums. I am actually here to find out how much my dad should sell his car for. It is an 76 SS with 17,000 original miles on it. That is right 17,000 original miles. On top of that it has been garage kept and covered inside the garage for it's entire life. This means that all of the rubber parts are still perfect and there is no rust anywhere on or under the car. This car has never seen rain or any bad weather. The car is completely original inside and out and except for a couple tiny dents along the side (garage items bumping into it over the 27 years) it is perfect. The engine needs a little work here and there like new seals for the carbourator and small stuff like that (time does that to cars). It still runs like it did before I was born. Any help finding a buyer or even just a price estimate would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

"A picture is worth a thousand words" If it's an SS, is it a 350 or 454, that alone would increase the value. Kind of hard to say what a car would be worth if you can't at least look at some pictures. Why don't you post some pics on here, you might even find a buyer!

I didn't even know that I could post pics, I am doing that right now! And it is a 350 my dad has kicked himself for many years for not getting the bigger motor. Although, I don't see that car handling much more horsepower. It's just a matter of taste I guess.

Wow, you're kidding right about selling it? If I were you I'd offer Dad a buck and keep it in the family.

I love the car and so does he. He bought it from the factory brand new and I don't know what a garage looks like without it. He wants something that is a little louder and faster. He is leaning towards a ZO6 and this way there is alot more room in the garage. He get's rid of both of his cars and gets one in return. I am an Rx-7 entusiast myself, and I need some garage space to park mine. So there you have it. After 26 or 27 years it is time for it to find a new owner that can take care of it properly and enjoy it at the same time.

Chris,
It's too bad your dad can't keep the SS Elky and get his Z06. It's the best of both worlds. The Elky looks great.
You might check www.collectorcartraderonline.com and see what people are asking for 4th generation El Caminos (I'd add about 25% for the condition your dad's appears to be in).
Good luck,
Dan

Chris, I am not sure what your dad's Elky is worth. If it wasn't so far away, I'd take a serious look at it. It is in great shape. My suggestion would be to pay a certified auto appraiser to look it over. Bring or show all documentation of ownership and service records. That might not tell you what you can sell it for, but at least give an accurate starting point. Plus, you can provide the appraisal to the buyer. I know that would help me, if I was the buyer.

Best of luck,

Jay

It's a 350...the 454 said goodnight after the 75 model run...not sure but even the 400 was gone by then IIRC....

There are several car guides online...VRM & CPI are the most reliable (CPI can be found on the Hemmings site).

Why not take it to some car shows with a good for sale sign made up for it- detailing Origonal owner, 17k orig miles, all documentation, etc etc...

That car looks AMAZING... You should have no trouble finding someone to buy it.

You will need to decided on a price though... If you don't have an idea of what you want- the you will get lowballers talking to you wasting your time.

That car should EASILY bring between $10k-$14k

It's too bad your dad is still planing on selling it...why don't you buy it from him, take a loan out if you have to, have your dad cosign, and keep it in the family! If not make sure who ever buys it is gonna appreciate what it is and takes good care of it. It would be a real shame if it winds up in the wrong hands

Realistically, I'd say you can count on around $10k max...if it were me selling it, I'd start under $12k. Given the economy and the demand, you'd be fortunate to get $10k.

The guides are just that...rarely does a car sell for the guide price unless it is a special interest car.
