My in-laws have a 1975 Coupe deVille and they are the third owners of it, they have all original paperwork. The car has only been out of Las Vegas once to go to Jean, NV. It is not in the best cosmetic condition, (needs new vinyl top, new paint, and new interior, including dash all been bleached by sun). Has 108,000 lifetime miles. Motor, transmission and under carriage is all original. They believe as it sits, they could get $10,000 out of it. I would like to know if that is even possible. Could post pic if needed.

I just looked on eBay, sold listings, one sold for $2124, another for $4500. You can buy a nice caddy convertible for $10k. I would guess $10k for the one you'll be selling would be tough to achieve. Cost to paint a car like that is $2k to $5k, interior would easily be $2k to $3k, vinyl top $1k. Given the described condition, they'd be lucky to get $1k or $2k.

YMMV.

Even with new top, paint, and interior, they would struggle to get $10,000 out of it.

10k is unrealistic. Given your description, the car needs a lot of expensive cosmetic work, and likely some mechanical, too. Also, these are not highly desirable cars. Aim for 2000.

Hate to say it, but I agree.
If you do happen to get $10K for it, please let me know if the buyer has a brother or any friends!!
