A forty year old car would have to be in excellent condition for me to pay that kind of price. You are not going to get an accurate answer just from a description. The car would have to be appraised and the selling prices researched.

This same question appeared a day or 2 ago. There cars are valuable, but mint condition brings in less than $8k, thers are 71's listed for $5, 6k and have been listed and unsold for up to a year. Going price, running, no rust, no dents, $3-5k tops...JJBUG do NOT pay that kind of money.
