They probably would have been worth $50,000 after you spent $100,000 doing complete body-off restorations.
These are cars I owned during the 60’s that I wish I had back:
1961 Austin Healy Bug Eye Sprite
1964 Impala SS 327-300hp, 4 speed, posi, nice, nice car, new
1965 Buick Skylark, 4 speed, posi, black with red buckets
1966 Dodge Charger 383-torqueflite
1968 Dodge Charger 440-torqueflite, fast, but never saw a filling station it didn’t like.
The 64 Impala was without a doubt the best of the bunch, great, great car to drive both in town and on the highway. Tight body by Fisher, low wind and road noise.
