Craigslist Classic Cars By Owner - It's not every day you come across an all-original 1972 Chevrolet Chevy SS with a 402ci Big Block V8. Here's what we found on Craigslist for the Sacramento, California area and wanted to share with you all. Opinions will certainly differ on what this classic American muscle car is worth, but we won't tell you what to think, just presenting what we know and letting you decide whether or not it's a worthwhile investment.
Not everyone is a fan of the 1972 Chevelle, many prefer the 1970 over 1966 or other model years. Arguments on this vary, with some thinking that first generation Chelyabs have been the best for a long time.

Others look at the 1972 model year specs when comparing them to the 1971, 1970, or 1969 specs. The thing you need to keep in mind is how horsepower was measured starting with the 1972 model year, then the ratings went down. Also, with changes in government regulations, muscle car horsepower has decreased as pollution and fuel economy concerns have swept the nation. You can argue with other enthusiasts about whether or not a '72 Chevelle is a dog all day, but some people still feel lucky to own these cars.

The question is, will you fork over the $59,000 required for this particular car? The claim is that it has only 2 owners and has an origin to match the number. We can't confirm that any of this is true, but assuming it is, is it worth changing?
Not only does the Chevelle have a potent 402, it also has a 4-speed transmission behind it and a 12-bolt Hurst stance, according to the ad. The seller claims that there is no rust, that it is as reliable as a California car. Everything from the pictures to the paint to the factory gauges looks incredibly good because it hasn't been restored. In the listing, the mileage is stated at 99,000, which is supposed to be a placeholder, so may not be an accurate reading.
So what do you think of this classic Chevy? Is that a lot of money or is there something that doesn't need it so much?

They say Texas is a whole other country, and is as big as France and Switzerland combined (with a population of over 29 million), only Alaska is larger geographically. For someone looking for a fresh project car, that can be good or bad, depending on where you are. Texas has a large number of vehicles and they are in no hurry to leave the city. That's because Texas is the fossil fuel capital of the nation, and Texans love their cars.

We recently dug into all of the top Craigslist sites in Texas, including Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and El Paso. Our goal is to find the 10 best deals on project cars for $5,000 and under, ranging in years from 1960 to 1985. We did a similar search here for California Craigslist sites two weeks ago and found some nice trash. Think, how about Texas?
It turns out that Texas, while bigger than California, has fewer cars we want to find rust-free. However, not everyone can just quit their job for a week and head to the west coast for something like this. Sometimes you have to work with what you have (e.g. Gulf Coast Rust); You could do worse than the Lone Star State, much of the western half experiences a protective, dry climate much like California's.
One thing, however, that seems to be universal across all Craigslist sites is that the low cost of posting generates a lot of questionable listings with shoddy photos, little information, and cryptic contact information. Even with salesmen ever higher up, there's a lack of facts, the kind you need to spend all day checking out the car. It's a lesson for sellers that if you really want to sell for the maximum amount, it pays to have higher quality/quantity photos and more detail in the ad - or risk disappointment from everyone. Let's see what Texas has to offer the week of January 21, 2021! (Don't forget to check out all the additional photos in the gallery.)
Cisco, Texas is where this Givenchy Edition Lincoln Mark IV belongs, and you can bet it spent the majority of its 91,000 miles cruising along Interstate I-20 in comfort. These luxury boats from the early 80's are low on value, and if you're looking for one in good condition at a good price, now's the time to buy one. Needs some work to get it running, but we're encouraged by the straight sheetmetal. Our biggest concern isn't actually the non-drive condition (302ci/AOD drivetrain combinations are a dime a dozen), but replacing the worn driver-side turn signal lens would be extremely difficult, given the cost of the part.

We love finding fields and this self-described (Smithville, Texas) looks the part with a nice aged patina. What puts it on our radar is the X-body architecture (like the Chevy Nova). It works but forget the birth - with the Buick 3.8L V-6 - go with an inexpensive small-block Chevy, add a Holley Sniper nitrous kit, swap out the rolling stock and remove the sideshow. Most Camaro/Nova suspension pieces will fit perfectly. If you look long enough at the grille and headlights, you'll see the face of the 1972 Malibu. (See ad here.)
We are thrilled with her (El Paso), but due to her ultra sexy appearance we are inclined to recommend her from a different perspective. It would be a dunk if the interior wasn't hit so well and if the rear wasn't hit in the gas tank filler neck area. We love the big Buick 430ci mill, sweet styling, and straight sheet metal (with the exception of the rear bumper) on this big, beautiful Flower. If you can get the value of the transaction down to $1,000 or even $1,200, pull the trigger. (See announcement here.)
Located in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area but listed on El Paso's Craigslist due to its huge market, this Colonnade-style MA body will always get our blood pumping. Chevy was making millions a day, and many parts are still plentiful because they shared mechanicals with so many other cars. It needs a better driver's side fender, and there's some nasty rust under the vinyl top, but everything is present and justified. These cars are still relatively common, so you can get one (or another similar one) for under $2K. (See announcement here.)
When Ford redesigned the Thunderbird for 1964, he had the unfortunate honor of launching the Mustang a few months earlier, with which it shares much of its styling vocabulary. Make no mistake, this T-Bird (El Paso) is loaded with quality luxury that will never be seen again in cars this price. Well undervalued in our view (a view not shared by the market), the 1964-66 T-Bird dollar is a lot of fun. With this trim and interior mostly intact, aside from slightly faded upholstery, this West Texas running project has potential. (See announcement here.)

If you're a Mopar guy and on a shoestring budget, then a custom A-Body is your vehicle of choice. If so, this 1975 Dodge Dart Sport (Pecos, Texas) might be your lucky number. The seller goes into detail explaining some minor issues that won't bother people with the car (gauge not working, fender rattling), but there's not even a flaw on top. He forgets the color of the baby's poop; He buys now or consider making an offer at the asking price if competitive. (See announcement here.)
The Mercury Comet was a sibling to the Ford Falcon and an older cousin to the Mustang, meaning that the major mechanical parts (engine, drive train, suspension, brakes) were commonly available save for model-specific trim and sheet metal. If you don't mind driving a four-door (they're becoming more popular every day), then this perfectly aged 1965 Comet Caliente (Pleasanton, Texas) might be for you. It's undoubtedly a typical old lady's car, and there are literally no dings or dings on it. The patina is to die for as well, so if you get that, for the love of patina, don't paint it! (See announcement here.)
We're back on the GM A-body column bandwagon with this 1975 Olds Cutlass. Like the 1976 Chevy Malibu above, that's an unrealistically high price, but maybe that's our fault for nicknaming these cars.
