They're not even going to get anyone on the lot to look at it at that price.  That thing has been on Craigslist at least once a week since I bought my Hornet...  in Sept or Oct IIRC..

Been on ebay around a dozen times as well. It's MAYBE worth a quarter what they're asking. Do four doors even change hands for four figures yet?

Maybe a pre-emissions V8, but not a '77 258 with that wonderful plaid interior...

That would be a nice driver for about 2500-3000. With the 258-2bbl it should have a 2:73 rear and get 28 mpg at least. Maybe even 30 tuned up well. The 4dr option is good for taking buddies along. Cheesy. It would be nicer if it didn't have rice-crispies on those quarters, but since it is soo rare being a 77CONCORD, it should be worth more. GrinSH

My 68 Rebel had been listed at a little over $2k for well over a year without a single person ever looking at it before I got it.
 
For the kind of price they're asking, it would have to be low miles and cherry condition.  I can see all kinds of body damage in the little pictures, and they state it as over 100k miles.  I wouldn't expect anyone to pay more than $1500 for it.  Late 70's family cars aren't worth anything anymore.

50 dollars a year would be $1600 for taking care of it and a little for storage. Nothing for the car, would you guys rentout your garages for $4.16 a month? Just think about it for a second. Food for thought. That is exactly why people just crush stuff.  SadWhich makes it hard to fix cars with no parts. Late 70's family cars are going up too. It is not uncommon at all to see a 5 or $6000 price tag on a Nice one. SH

I haven't seen that take place here yet.  For the most part, family cars between the 60's and the 90's can't get more than $1k to maybe $2k, even when they are in good condition.  We have a bit of a glut of used cars around here, though.
 
"50 dollars a year would be $1600 for taking care of it and a little for storage. Nothing for the car, would you guys rentout your garages for $4.16 a month? Just think about it for a second.

Out in the collector car world of all brands, people are bringing NICE 4dr Buicks, OLDS, Pontiacs, LTD's Matadors, new yorkers and what have you to the shows. Some to show and some for the car corral, Many of the brands I listed are for sale around 6900 for very nice rides with about 60 some thousand miles. Where you live rust is less which keeps cars around longer. Unfortunately most of them are the lesser models,  the higher end ones are long worn out. So price comparison is not actually equal. If you are a member of AMO, your newsletter is evidence of people liking and collecting Hornets. Your ad realease is a good indication that mostly any fixable AMC gets about 1500 price tag. Some with alot of miles. I would not say that they have no collectable value, because there are many people like myself that drove and drive them currently. I was suggesting the car would be a nice driver for maybe your daughter? Wife, Or a colledge student. Still a AMC on the road from a Rambler loving family. My neice drove a 69 Falcon for high school. They are a Ford family and a maverick like the Hornet would have been a good deal for them. Easy to fix and maintain. Anyway no you don't have to feel bad that  what you would pay is different. You are looking at it through a saving it aspect. I was looking at it from a car to drive aspect. It has lots of miles left with the drivetrain it has. Can be driven by a Hornet Hatchback lover that is fixing it, and he would enjoy all the old car benifits while doing so. SH

Funny, actually I was thinking about it as a driving it aspect, and I actually deleted a line that I had typed in my previous post where I was going to say that it seemed like a type of car you might get for your kid's first car, or that an AMC enthusiast might want for their everyday tooling around car.  In these parts, that is the type of car that you probably wouldn't pay much for, and you look for somone selling them that isn't asking a lot.  I'm always talking about my dad here, he is after all the person responsible for my interest in classic cars, but this car looks like one my dad would buy for probably around $1500 and use as a backup car for his mail route (my Rebel's previous occupation Smiley ).  I just had wondered if there was a touch of reproach in your statement about the price I had mentioned.

To tell you the truth, no I wouldn't say that. You have a right to an opinion, and maybe your wallet reflects cost. Just want to get people to undrstand that others like me are spending thousands of dollars every year to save cars. I myself have cut down along way due to storage costs. It just needs a little reminder that as a hobbiest we tend to value stuff at a certain number and never let it increase. We must or they will get sent to the junkyards_salvageyards. I have thrown away more part than some guys will ever own. Because of storage. I have crushed more cars than some will own in their life totally, same reason, storage. I now currently spend most of my pay on storage. I have all of my cars inside. However would not sell them any longer because the investment is too high. I personally feel that a ready to go drving AMC of that age should be worth2500 to 3000. I would not even considering selling my wife 80 Concord wagon limited for less than 3000. It has 241,000 miles and can be driven anyplace at 30 mpg at 70mph. It is very well maintained by a professional mechanic. ME. I just spent 200 at parts store today, and I do not think alot of it. I want to make sure it works as new all the time, it is not that I cannot afford a new car just don't want one. SH
