Also has a rebuilt muncie, 12 bolt is rebuilt, rebuilt 454 98 Vortec, and 4 row aluminum radiator.   Need body work, looks like lower rear front fenders, lower rear quarters and some work around the front and rear windshield.  Trunk pan has been replaced and floor is suppose to be good.

Needs interior, body work, paints, and misc chrome and trim.

 

66 Chevelle.

Needs more pictures to tell, but my max would be about 4-5K. Back of the roof is jacked, plus what was mentioned. if there's missing interior stuff, that can add up real quick vs just replacing bad pieces.

I noticed the dent at the middle of the roof.  I was more concerned about any rust though in the pinch weld area around the rear and front glass.   With a good frame that has had the suspension redone and painted along with disc brakes at all four wheels and a rebuilt 12 bolt and rebuilt munice, if all is true would be worth 3-4K.  It has 66 bucks and rear seat.  Looks to be a column shift changed to a floor shift. I have an ideal of what the interior would cost.  But body work and Paint I would guess 10

K-20K  depending upon quality and  how much work  one can do by himself. .  So you would be looking at 20-30K when done for a Malibu.

I agree with 4-5k.

It's completely missing the trunk dropoff and lower quarter on the right side. They took a lot of pictures without showing any detail of the typical problem areas... that to me is a big red-flag.

It's also a 6-cylinder car if that matters to anyone.

Am I imagining things, or did they run a hard line for the rear brakes from the frame to the axle housing? Even if they do have a hose in there somewhere, that hard line sticks up so high, it will be bent when it hits the trunk floor going over a bump. Makes me suspect hack work on the rest of the "rebuilt" stuff on the car.

The "great" floor in front is home made sheetmetal. Can't see detail underneath to see if it was laid over the rusted out original pans. No pic of the trunk floor either.
I wonder if a hood would close over the generic, oversize radiator. The square corners stick up a long ways over the core support.
The left rear wheel is scraping on the park brake bracket.
Those are some fancy hard lines on the rear brakes, Derek. I agree, the whole car has that "homebuilt" appearance to it. Lots of shiny black paint/POR 15 on the frame and floor to hide potential rust issues.
I would like to see the build tag. Looks like it was a Marina Blue with Blue interior, powerglide car. Would be a nice color combo.
Someone dumped a bunch of money into the unnecessary brakes and exhaust instead of the body. Typical dreamer scenario.
With what they will think it's worth, the 30k might be on the light side for a finished price. If you're gonna start with a body that rough and virtually nothing of the interior usable, look for one in original condition that hasn't had 10k in parts thrown at it and is still a basket case.

I didn't see the rest of the pics, now that I'm on a real computer I pulled them up. I'm dropping mine to 3K max. Look at the front suspension pic..... black paint only on top of the bolts and stuff, no black pain on the inside of the frame at all and you can see brown. Rear suspension: *** with the wire nut? looks like a spray bomb job and everything would be coming back apart. makes me wonder if they had a chassis, slapped a leftover engine in it, and tossed on what they had in suspension stuff along with a few new missing pieces to make a "complete" car. interior is only there for support pieces and an example of where the new stuff belongs. It's all bad.

Yeah Bryan, the more I see the lower the price needs to be.
