I have a '76 cobra II. I got it from a friend about a year ago. He told me the only thing it needed was a rearend. He was mistaken. I am still paying him on this car, however, I have only paid him $150 of the 1100 I owe him. Now we are going rounds about the price because the car is not what I expected. He tells me the car is worth $2800 I don't believe it is even worth the 1100 I agreed to. Here is a run down of it...it needs a motor rebuild if I can save the block, I have rebuild the carb twice now, it needs paint and body work, the air conditioning is gone, it needs an oil pan, and the interior is shot. The wiring is also a mess and it doesn't even have a kickdown for the tranny. I need some opinions on how much this may be worth. HELP!!! I want to keep this car and fix it, I really wanted a project and this is definately one. So please help me if you can. Just from what I have told ya'll how much would you pay. Oh and it needs wheels and tires too. It is also missing the spoiler in the front and one of the spoiler corners in the rear. please help.

From the description, I'd have a problem paying more than $150 for it. I got a car for a lot better condition than that for $250 to use as a parts car. The problem with the parts car was rust on the main body, there was just too much to save it. You could poke your finger through much of it. I needed the front end and interior. The hood and front fenders were in surprising good shape compared to the main body. I also took the rear spoiler and side window louvers as well as list of parts that I thought I could use later. I think I got my 250 dollars worth out of it to get mine back in shape.

Good luck with your situation.
