I'd say $800-$1000 if it is inspected.

If it runs- 1200 isn't a lot of money for ANYTHING that runs- if you like it- no rust? why not?

If it's got the V8 400 or V8 403 grab it!! If it's got the V8 350 offer $800 and see if you can get it for $1000. If it's got the V8 301 I wouldn't pay more than $800 for it. Also, check the automatic transmission. If it still has a turbo- hydromatic 200 or turbo-hydromatic 250 in it think twice. They are too small for these cars and very prone to failure. Reverse is the first to go. You'll see THM200 or THM250 stamped somewhere on the transmission unit. Probably the pan. By now, though, these were all pretty much swapped out for the better turbo- hydramatic 350 (THM350) transmission. HTH. -Jim

What really matters is what it is worth to you. If you love the car and want to spend the time, effort, and money fixing it up; then it is certainly worth the cost. Especially since you did not mention every old car lovers greatest enemy...rust. Good Luck with the "land yacht".
