    Value - 1969 Deville Convertible w/63,000 mi

    My Mother owns a 1969 Deville Convertible that my recently deceased Father had purchased in 1980. She moved to FL permanently in October and wants to sell it because she has no need for the car. I'd like to make a reasonable offer so I can 'keep it in the Family' *if* the cost to correct some issues is not too much.

    The car is in very good shape. Mechanical items include: (1) 2 bad cylinders not firing, (2) needs back brakes, (3) grille needs slight repair, (4) inside HVAC vent needs replaced, and (5) drivers side door jamb needs fixed. The interior is in very good shape, no tears in leather.

    Any thoughts concerning value if:
    1. As-is, where-is.
    2. Correct mechanical issues (1) and (2) above and minor issues noted above.

    I always believe that eBay gives you a pretty good idea of what a fair condition car is actually worth, as opposed to what the book says. If you do a search for a 1969 deville on eBay at the moment, you can see that there are examples around $5000 - $10000, the most recent one that sold went for $8800 with allegedly no faults - discount that for the faults you describe and the 'family discount' and I don't think you would be doing her a disservice at between $4000 and $5000.

    Just me 2c

    Given issues and no rust (check the quarter panels, fenders , and the undercarriage), I'd say 4k or so would be fair.
    Edit: Somehow I missed that 2 cylinders weren't firing. I'd say 3500 or so is fair.

    Also, what is wrong with the drivers door jamb?

    Engine work can get pricey. I'd say 4K is the top for this car, sine you'll be sinking in an almost equal amount to correct the mechanical issues.

    I agree with the value ranges posted. Looks like a solid car with good panel gaps from what I can see in the pictures. Rare and desirable color combo (if you like it) I think it was called Chateau Mauve in '69?

    Chateau Mauve Firemist, with a white top, dark mauve ostrich grain leather inside.
    Not a bad example, but some work will be needed to repair.
    If it were me, I'd say tops of $4k to $5k.
    Rebuilding an engine, if needed, repairing brakes, and finding elusive interior fittings will cost a few dollars.
    4-5k is fair.
