What is my partially restored 1970 monte worth?

10

Asked by May 31, 2014 at 03:27 AM about the 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I bought it as a roller solid frame no
rust on it, solid trunk, redid
everything firewall forward. All people
can say is wow when i pop the hood
it is so clean! 4 bolt main 350 cubic
inch engine with lots of edelbrock
upgrades and lots of chrome, new
th350 transmission, new fender
wells, new wiper motor (it has the
stealth hidden wipers), new drive
shaft, new bumper and new core
support, chrome grill, new wire
harness, new brakes, ext... Like I
said everything firewall forward is
new or mint OEM parts from a local
monte that was being parted.
Bucked seats, duel antennas, rear air
bagged suspension, needs minimal
body work and paint. But turns
heads as it is. Is my daily driver! So
super reliable strong engine. Drive it
minimum of 55 miles a day mostly
interstate. Can be cruising 90mph hit
the gas and it will lift the front end
(wheels still on ground obviously) and
throw you back in your seat.

It's mechanically perfect starts just like a new car. pump the gas 2-3 times and turn the key and it doesn't have to crank a second two it just fires right up. Drive it 51+ miles a day and has never left me stranders i redid everything right. Just needs paint.

I only need to know the value because I need to prove to my insurance it was worth more they trying to short change me on the insurance check, It got rear ended by a guy doing like 50-60 mph when it was parked out side my girlfriends house and the car is pretty much totaled. He blew out the rear springs, pushed in my rear bumper, pushed in my back left quater panel, hit the back left so hard the front bumper and right fender go damaged, cracked my windshield, broke my dash in half, radiator is hanging half out, the car won't start. He was in like a 1996 camry and moved the car like 2-3 car lengths and whipped in a 1/4 the way around. When I saw it I literally shed a few tears. I spend 10 months and HUNDREDS!!! of hours building this car. So i need the value of the car in the shape it is in the pictures so I can prove it is worth at least double what they are offering. Thanks for the answers so far hope to hear more from your guys soon! Thank you. :)

Pictures get blury when you click on them and blow them up in size so make them a little smaller since i took the pictures on my cell phone.

Looks nice, keep it on the road!

I wish I could. That was before it was totaled. Like I said I need a estimated value to show to my insurance to prove its worth more than what they are trying to give me.

OK, you didn't mention anything about being in an accident. Never take the first quote from your insurance co. They always lowball. Negotiate

So what do I do for them to give me more money

Get ur insurance to cough up dough for faster restoration then ur moms casserole
