1971 chevy kingswood - excellent condition

I have decided to sell my 1971 Kingswood due only to the ongoing bad economy and personal salary cuts, etc.
This is one of the best original condition vehicles I have seen in my 30+ years of actively looking and owning older cars. This car supports factory original dark blue metallic paint, original 350 c.i. engine (65K), auto transmission, power steering / brakes, roof rack, mint interior other than the crack on dash pad, new wheels / tires, absolutely no rust or history of body work, excellent chrome, etc. . . . . .
If you are looking for a GM wagon of this year, you must at least check this wagon out. You will be amazed at the original excellent shape this car has retained in it's 40 years of age. Always garaged and maintained with oil changes every 1500 miles. My contact number is 815-355-9635.
Please call with any questions or concerns regarding this very nice unique wagon. Thanks for looking! Paul

Looks like an honest car, king. It would help to show the interior and engine compartment. I don't know the rarity or value of these wagons...only the others that I have seen for sale. $8500 seems really high to me. Am I wrong?

It is, if one goes by the price guides. In #2 condition (showroom condition), the Old Cars Price Guide puts the value of 1971 Chevrolet Kingswood 3-seat station wagon at $6,630. In #3 condition (typical "car-show" condition), it's $4,460.

However, these are very average values, and given the strong maintenance history, some premium over these values is justified. Unusually low mileage would raise the value, too.

I dunno, jaunt. I see the car as an honest one for sure. But when they look at these cars to price them they have to be as stated and that's pretty critical. I doubt the car is better than typical car show condition. The miles and one owner will make a difference but the car is the car. To me, and I am no expert on this model (which I like) the car is way high. Again...I could sure be wrong.

1971 Chevy Kingswood Pricing - Reply

Thanks for all of your input regarding the asking price for this wagon. I understand that at first glance the $8,500.00 price would seem high. The only real fact I have is an offer of $8,000.00 last year, which I did not take as I was never intending to sell this car. I do have $8,300.00 into this car, and I know that doesn't mean much to anyone except me. I also know that the many 70-71 Kingswood wagons I looked at prior to purchasing this one were never close to the excellent shape and low original miles this wagon supports. Obviously I am open to offers.
I wanted the Station Wagon Forum to be the first to see this wagon for sale, hoping to "keep it in the family" of station wagon lovers. I however will not sell to anyone wanting to demo-derby this classic original, as this wagon is much to nice, and should be around for people to see and enjoy.

Is this offer still good? I'd jump on it if it is.

Shame on me for not taking this guys phone number. He has mine, and I am hoping that he might call me, as he was really interested in this car. I agree, I would take the $8,000 without hesitation. I might put this out on Rt. 12, Fox Lake Illinois, as that is the general location of where this guy lives, and just maybe he will see it and call me. Timing is everything. Learn a lesson from this, if anyone shows interest in your car / boat / etc., get a name and phone number - you just never know.

Depends on how bad you want one... I shelled out $4000 cash for my 72 Estate wagon 3 years ago (which looking back was way too much imo, but I wanted it), then discovered it needed a cam, lifters and had leaky cargo area windows and the spare tire well had a rust hole. By the time its over, I will likely have $7000 invested.

If someone wants this nice wagon bad enough, they will pay it. We'll see. Good luck with the sale!

Like every car ever made, yours is worth whatever somebody will pay for it. (I guess that goes without saying.) Do you, by any chance, save your phone bills, or perhaps you could get on your phone company's website and look at your bills from last year. Maybe you could get the guy's phone # that way.
Best of luck. I join the others in saying it looks like a nice, clean and honest long roof. I hate that you have to part with it.

This wagon is the real deal. I have seen this wagon up close and personal. He had stopped by a few times at work to see my '78 LTD Country Squire. I might be a FoMoCo guy but this one is just mint. No fading around the dash or panels, the seats are awesome, the carpet is original and I did not see any tears. The car seems to have the correct factory stance, dose not lean or sag. It probably is one of few Kingswood (non wood) left in this nice of a condition. Even the dome light lens was not cracked or dried out.
