I love that kind of car, but don't care for that body style. It's a bit on the high side, but it would be hard to find a better example if that's the kind of thing you like.

The seller picked up this car, probably for $5K (or less), cleaned it up, did a few days re-commissioning, and expects a big payday. After only a week, the price is dropped, but not much. I'm guessing the seller will be hearing crickets while potential buyers wait for next week's price drop.

I've tried to sell a couple of cars that way, and it certainly hasn't worked for me. Nibbling at the asking price sends the message you're not serious about selling, or just don't know the market value.

I think there’s a lot of that right now, especially not knowing the market. Either that, or I’m too cheap to spend a few bucks. I’d buy this one in a heartbeat for 5 or 6 grand, about 10,000 less than what he’s asking.

While I truly appreciate the originality of this car, there's no hiding the fact that it was Chevrolet's bargain basement full size offering for '64 with zero creature comforts, not even a meager 283 V-8, (with the possible exception of an AM radio as there is an antenna).   After the first day behind the wheel I think the novelty would wear off pretty fast and leave one with a big dose of buyer's remorse while thinking about how much more car you could buy for $16,000.

I'm with you George, at $5 or $6K I think the car would be worth owning with no regrets.

Chevy Fever strikes again. I would love to have that car, I think it's beautiful, but the bottom of the line full size model of the bottom of the line brand for GM shouldn't be worth more than the more upscale offerings of that year, particularly when it isn't factory equipped with the engine that made Chevy famous. Think of the '64 Buick Riviera you could buy for not much more than $16K.

 

I want to say only nice things about this cool car - like I'm really glad it wasn't retrofitted with Chevy's famous engine that I mentioned - but the price is a distraction.

My wife owned a ‘66 Belair 2 door sedan in the ‘70’s. 283 Powerglide no PS, PB or any other options. Great car.

In the early 2000’s, I owned the bottom of the line ‘66 Biscayne 2 door sedan. No PS, PB, not even a radio. It did have a couple nice features though: L72, M20, & 4:88’s. OK children, can you say RACE CAR?
