What's the going price for a restored 1971 2002?

I did a search on the cars for sale and only found a couple....however, most were heavily modified.

I have a 1971 that needs restoring. It is rust free and straight, however, the only way I would restore it is if I got my money out of it (minus any labor of love). If it was a tii, this would be a no brainer.....

I would keep it stock to keep costs down, unless there were some cheaper mods that would make sense.

If it's not worth it, I will probably just keep the parts around as spares....

TIA

i dont see any way you will get your loot back restoring a car the proper way. you have to do it because you love to do it. otherwise make a nice driver out of it and enjoy it

....it is a pointless question given all the input.

Do not 'invest' any money into it.

Sell it now.

Seen the news lately ?

Nobody, ever gets their money out of a restoration project. Like Blunt says it can't be about the money, it has to be a labor of love.

parted out (or worse, left to rot as a future source of parts) just because a profit couldn't be made by restoring it - find someone who's looking for a project and wants to start with a solid car and send it on to a new, caring home..........
