    Hello,

    This is a story that goes back 10 or so years. My wife and I used to own a 1966 Valiant, 4-door which so happened to have belonged to her grandmother. Her grandmother bought the car new. We had the car for a few years and sold it in 2010. We now have the opportunity to buy the car back. The person that purchased the car in 2010 has done some work to the car. He has re-upholstered both front and back seats, installed new tires and has repaired the brakes (they never did feel right while we owned the car).

    The car is a daily driver and is in no way a show car. The car runs and drives pretty good but the body has some rust spots, especially one behind the passenger side rear door. Plus a few other dents and dings. There are other issues also, the radio doesn't work(didn't when we had it), the outside mirrors need replaced, radio antenna needs replaced, etc. The chrome is in very good shape. The car still has the original hub caps. The owner still has all the paperwork we gave him when we sold it to him, bill-of-sale, owners manual, repair receipts, etc.

    My question is, what would you think this car is worth? He has shot me a price which I think is a bit high but I could be wrong. I made him an offer but he wouldn't budge off his asking price. I know it's tough to estimate without seeing the car but what is your opinion?

    Appreciate all feedback!

    Thanks!

    Mike

    Join "forabodiesonly.com" and ask the same question, with photos. Those guys will tell you!

    To me, it has the most value to you, because of the history. Curious as to the real value, without sentiment, to someone else.

    I like those cars. 64 Valiant with I assume is a /6 wish push button auto. 2 grand sounds about right. If it was mine I'd put another 2 thousand into it. Radio and mirrors are a easy fix. Fix the rust, there be more there then you can see. Make sure the fornt end is nice and tight with sway bars, that generation A car is one of the best handelling cars of its era. Engine, a 2 barrel realy wakes up that /6.
