Factory 455, all numbers matching car. We have nearly all of the original paperwork since the vehicle was new. Even the clock still works!! It has been stored in a Florida garage for quite some time. Out of the owner's personal collection, this car is a knockout! 90% original paint, 100% original woodgrain, and original spare tire as well! Read for car shows, Saturday night cruises, or a long haul across the country, the feeling of nostalgia is evident.

We have been in the business since 1981 selling quality rust free southern vehicles and also collector cars of various varieties from station wagons to muscle cars! Step-father purchases everything and looks over everything we sell personally because if he wouldnt want it for himself he wouldnt buy it, which has been his motto his entire life!

Lets have at it!! Thanks for your interest!

I agree that it is a beautiful, low-mileage example, but I think the lack of interest you're seeing is due to your nearly $10,000 asking price. There's no way that car is worth that much. The price guides list values in $6,000 to $8,000 range for '73 Custom Cruisers in that condition.

Just my opinion. You're the one who's been ttt-ing to bump the thread up. Have you asked yourself why you need to do that?

I've got one of those myself. It's a 100,000 mile car, not a 40,000, but it's still in very good shape. It has a 455 (they all did as that was the only engine available on the clam-shell Custom Cruiser through all six years of its existence).

I'd love to think it's worth close to 10 grand, but I'm realistic. I bought it from the family of the original owner (in January 2010), so I have every last piece of original paperwork as well. It did need some reassembly of the interior to fix a problem with the tailgate motor, but it otherwise looked pretty much as you see it here. I paid $1,500 for it.

Well I agree to disagree. And being in business since 1981 with the family, and in addition to selling selling several old cars a month to all over the nation I beg to differ. We had a 1959 Mercury Commuter 9 passenger station wagon with 33k on it a few years back, all original paint, chrome, 3 out of 4 original tires, paperwork, sold it for $15k, car was sold a year later for over 20k. Find one like it, or try to because you cant as nice as that one is as well!

No offense to your car, but i have all the original paperwork, protecto plate, the original gate and clock still work and a/c blows ice cold. The paint is 95 percent original and in immaculate shape. I doubt you will find a nicer one. I can sit on the car and will not have a problem if i dont sell it now, or in a year. Value will only increase. Old cars if purchased properly, are rolling investments, making way more money than sitting in a savings account at 0.00005 percent interest rate!

We sell a lot of old muscle cars and collector cars and 1970 vehicles are in high demand, because for a lot of people 1960s and 1950s era cars are priced out of the range of a great majority of individuals. 1970s vehicles are still within reach of finding a nice 8-10k car. I dont know what price guide you use, but we had over 4 Vista Cruisers and all of them sold for over 7k and more and this is the nicest one minus one I will never sell because its a true muscle wagon: 45k protecto plate all paperwork rust free original glass 1970 Vista Cruiser; Factory 455 4 barrel, 400 trans, 12 bolt posi rear, a/c , all power options, #s matching everything, and mostly all original blue paint with woodgrain and white top and all original glass.

Also Grundy begs to differ with you on "agreed " value of both of these vehicles. Which means, someone hits me, no questions asked, check in the mail for what the appraised value is that we agree on, which is a major fault people dont do and then end up costing themselves money in the long run.

I know a good insurance agent who owns several of the most well known and superbly restored Buick muscle cars in the world in Marysville. Owns Mill Creek Insurance. He has now become Hagherty Insurance official Ohio broker and has been in the insurance business owning his own agency for a long time. I suggest you meet him, appraise your car, meet the agreed value and then rest assured, something happens, you will be compensated exactly what you should be given. CYA is the name of the game!

I take issue with a few of your comments:

Wonderful, but you're comparing apples and oranges. A '59 Mercury wagon is not the same as a '73 Olds wagon. And what good are the original tires, and only three of them? They're over 50 years old and likely very dangerous to drive on. Taking them off and mounting them in a trophy case is about all they're good for.

This worries me a bit. The last year that an Oldsmobile came with a protect-o-plate was 1972. No way a '73 came with one unless someone made one aftermarket just for fun.

A '73 Custom Cruiser is not a muscle car, so what is the relevance in how many of those you sell to how likely this wagon is to sell at a $10,000 price?

Again, apples and oranges. We're not talking a Vista Cruiser here. What they sell for is not relevant.

Again, apples and oranges. We're not talking muscle cars here. Yes, those can sell for many tens of thousands of dollars. What bearing does that have on what a '73 Custom Cruiser is worth?

I'm not looking for insurance. No insurance company is going to over-value a car.
