The Starfire and the Grand Prix are easy to call, both painted in a version of "No Sale Blue", the opposite side of the color spectrum from "Resale Red". The Vette is sadly just in that used car wasteland, like the last of the Trans Am's, that were performance machines that just didn't stylistically age well. But, all three would be fun drivers at those prices.
DC ... one of these ‘Hurst badged Ramblers’ show up at my local ‘run what ya’ brung’ drag strip (with the window sticker still on it’) and proceeded to embarrass everything from a Boss 302 to a GTX. Nobody wanted to race it. Google it and find that it was more than a badged Rambler.
A next door neighbor brought a 1969 Gran Prix Model J in Verdoro Green, which IMMEDIATELY seized the attention of all us car crazy guys in the neighborhood! One day while parked at the curb, a drunk driver swerving to avoid it , clipped the tail end of a little girl's bike (breaking her hip), and ended up careening back across the street into a tree! The GP was summarily parked in the driveway after this dose of residential mayhem! 🙂
I think that the Starfire ( under appreciated) and the Grand Prix are truely bought well. I am not sure but I do not think that to many Grand Prixs had the 428 and that makes it special. I am not up on Ramblers but is 55K a good value? Maybe but I do not know on that one. To me, good values is under 30 K. I would of included the eldo but even though they state it runs and drives, those cars are hard to work on and expensive to fix so could very well be a nice looking money pit. As always, I am not an authority by any means, just my opinion
Surprising even myself being into the late sixty's/seventy's muscle car era i find the 65 Olds a deal that i would gladly add to the garage there's just something about it and being a ragger tops it off cant be many of them on the road.Cheers R
Most of these cars are auction bottom-feeders because they aren't really the most desirable. Their value rises when everything more desirable rises. Does anyone younger than a Baby Boomer even look twice at an old Starfire or the like? Other than to think, "Wow, that thing still runs!" But for GM shoving giant motors in everything, these wouldn't even catch the attention of a Baby Boomer.
