There are very few bargains to be had on any classic, desirable car nowadays thanks to Barrett-Jackson and Mecum and all the auction houses where those cars bring in tons of money from the well-to-do baby boomers that want the cars of their youth. Even the cars that were "bottom of the barrel" back then, like 350/auto Chevelles, are going for over $20K.
To find any "real" bargain on a pre-'73 car now you almost have to find somebody that doesn't know what they have or what they're going for now, or find a four door or wagon version (which obviously only applies to the full size cars like Torinos, Impalas, Malibus etc), which aren't nearly as cool...or get something that is a total basket case and restore it yourself.
Did you guys see the other day where that Hemi Cuda that was worth $1.something million was stolen? Apparently it was a one of a kind because it had some kind of flower print vinyl top on it, except the top was a reproduction and not even the original. Crazy the amount of money being spent on those things.
