1976 280 carb, new gas tank, tires, upholstery.  I was the second owner of this car at 92,000 miles.  I sold it to a friend for 5,000.00, he wants to sell it back (he had the interior done for 2,000.00).

there is minimal rust on a wheel well.. but no serious rust, it was garaged it's whole life.

I know this car is sound... paint is great, yellow.

Question is... at 108,000 miles... what do I offer?  I am pretty sure I can always sell it again, if need be, for 5,000.00... but this car is not that desireable.  they don't seem to move well.

Thoughts?

I just LOVED the way it drove and such, I sure as HELL don't need it.  I have a 76 TR6, and am rebuilding an 86 CJ7... so I don't need this car... but I can't bring myself to let it go... especially into the 'wilds'

I've had six 280's with the M110 engine, including a yellow '76, the most refined of the breed.  It will probably not depreciate much if at all--good-running examples with cosmetic appeal are pretty rare
