That is too much. Those cars are indeed valuable and will remain so, but that's a bit steep

Best Answer

I looked at some listings on several sites, and a mint condition goes for as much as $10k, but mostly in the $3 to $5k range, and the ones listed at $8, 9k have been there unsold for up to a year.

Trivia: they were under $3,000 new in 1971
