Thanks for the response. I wouldn't mind a few bucks for a headliner or seat cover, but don't want to be stuck putting another $1K in it.
I went to see it, drove it, but didn't buy it. It seemed to be in pretty nice condition - interior looked nice, no cracks in the dash. R20 ran smooth, exterior paint looked good, although if you looked closely, you could tell a front fender had been repaired at some time.
Lots of new parts, tranny shifted nicely, brakes, AC and original radio worked fine. It had the leaf springs in the rear, and the suspension felt good.
Only a couple problems - the clutch was pretty stiff (but is new), the steering leaks and made a bit of noise once. The spare wheel well had rusted through due to a leak that had been unrepaired for a long time, and the exhaust seemed too noisy from inside the car, although I didn't see anything wrong with it.
He wanted $2100.00, firm, which was a little more than I thought it was worth, considering the rusty hole, the leaky steering, and the fact that there are probably a few other things to fix.
Did I blow it ? or would a fair price be, maybe $1500.00?
