Asked by April Oct 09, 2011 at 08:36 PM about the 1974 Chevrolet Vega

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Ive looked on NADA and im not sure what catergory to put it under. Someone who wants to buy it says that he feels it should be in the "low retail value". and that he would only offer 900.00. Everything on this car is original,paint,interior,..EVERYTHING. there's no rips inside..The paint on it is still pretty and shiny all over. it runs great..i used it to take my kids to school and never had a problem,

Good thing you didn't sell it for $900, he was trying to lowball you. Vegas are rare to come by to my understanding and finding one thats fully functional is a plus.A fully restored Vega can catch 20 to 35 grand, assuming there's no rust... I wouldnt go less than $15,000.

The car should be worth between 2 & 2500.

Dang...two different responses....and not by just a few hundred dollars. Does the market for the Vega very that much? I just want to be fair for the buyer and myself.

I am the previous owner of three vegas and have been searching for the fourth for over two years your car is not worth 25 to 30 grand I have only seen one in three years that has gone for that much. The plus is that you have one to begin with I think the person responding second is close at 2,000 to 2,500 the Vegas people want are the 71 72 73 GT models one of those in the condition of yours would fetch 3 to 5 thousand easy

$900.00 is a decent price,it is worth what a buyer is willing to pay.BTW their is no NADA value on this car or any that old.

I personally think $900 is just too low for a Vega.. I mean fully restored they can fetch 12 - 20 grand easy so.. ya know?

DUDE,where do you get your info from,the vega was as piss poor as the pinto was.the onley vega that was anything was the cosworth vega,& they wont that good of a car.so..ya know,$900.00 is tops if that much.stop makeing this person feel bad.

dude, read my last post.. I said "I think". Secondly, if you do your homework alot of Vega's are transformed into Drag racers.. some of which run over 35 grand... I saw a few for sale online. 1974 Chevy Vega dragster.. $34,999. Saw a few more in the $45,000 range.. so.. again, it depends on what the person that is buying it is going to do with it. I'd still ask 1,200 for it regardless.

DUDE,you talking about something that is complety useless on the highway,she is not selling a dragster,is a DD.no use in wasting my time with you.

... DUDE.... if you would read... I said "most of them are transformed into a dragster". Had nothing to do with her selling it as a dragster you moron... and April: It was a good sell... I was only pointing out that most people usually buy them for parts or create a dragster out of them, was only expressing the fact that sometimes getting more for something useless isn't always a bad thing. But overall, great deal... no complains so.

April, I dont know if you have sold your car yet or not but reading the remarks left by papa and jesse im sure your confused dont listen to papa and even though Jesse has the car over valued at least he can see the value do not compare the Chevy Vega with the pinto or Gremlin it is in a different class. You have a Vega with a solid value between 2000.00 and 3000.00 depending on rust. Chevy made two major mistakes with the 71 72 73 vegas 1) poor rust inhibitors and 2) poor coooling for their new alum. block motor by 1974 these problems were mostly ratified dont sell that car for less than 1750.00 the buyer would be getting a great deal for that price. if I didnt live so far away i would buy it in a minute
