Just becoming classic: '81 Olds !


Recommended Posts

The seller might be a little optimistic here, but perhaps they think it's really special because it's the very desirable 4 door model. (or maybe one of the zeros in the price is a typo)

Definitely a fixer upper but a classic. Leaks engine oil, power steering oil, transmission oil. 95% OEM parts. Still drives great. Mostly sat in the garage for most of its life. $9000

I could see someone asking $9000 if he had one

with low mileage and in excellent condition.  These

cars are 41 years old now, though still not highly

desired.  I think they are well styled and well

proportioned.  And, as collectors focus on the

glamorous cars, they are 100 times scarcer than a

Buick Riviera of this year.

My Dad had two Malibu Classic wagons of this vintage when he passed away. I'm a wagon fan like my Dad but I didn't find them to be worth saving and both were scrapped. If he would have had his '64 or '68 Tempest wagons, I might have made a different decision.

Price increased... now $23,500! 

I guess the seller has been reading all the press about used car prices and inflation

Your notice made me look at the ad again.

I see that the car has 200,000 miles--shown in the

block of data at the right of the ad.

 

With that mileage, and the worn exterior, and the

stated leaks, the seller would be doing well to get

$2500--not $23,500!
