This is all way off topic, the question is would someone here sell their gt350 for less then market value because the buyer is on the saac forum.

Friend was selling a 66-350 about 2- 3 years ago. Posted it here.
Sold to a supermodel.
We put a number on it and that’s what sellers need to do.
……
Would he sell under market:
Probably not.

This is all way off topic, the question is would someone here sell their gt350 for less then market value because the buyer is on the saac forum.

    There are circumstances where I have seen this happen. HEALTH is usually the primary cause IMPE.  I have seen owner "pass" a car along to someone they feel will care for "their car" in the future. The second reason can be "the hassle" of selling a car on the open market. "Private sales"  have distinct advantages for some.
 "I" don't see any reason for an "automatic discount" to a SAAC member , just because, if that is what you are asking. Would I??? That my friend is the $64,000 question that I won't have to address for the 11 more years I plan to own it. If my ticket gets punched before that I don't care what is done with it (obviously).

If it's health at issue, I would drag myself to the garage and die in the driver's seat. Much like elephants have their own dying field.

White, blue, red or black with no rust or damage history? I’ll tell you what I’ll go 100 grand cash and take as many as there are. I’ll add 20 if they’re four-speed

I could imagine multiple scenarios where someone would sell something under market in the interest of a VERY quick sale.However if that number was below wholesale I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t engage a reputable classic car broker………My 2 cents.

Again the question is would YOU sell below market because the buyer was on the saac forum..

Maybe that's what this guy was doing???


You bring up a good point Richard - how would the price of the car be affected if you knew that the owner died in it? Or was "buried" in it? I've heard tell that some car buyers found cremains in the vehicle!

Not generally. But if it was a SAAC member in South Florida I might triple the price.  ;D

If the owner died in his car that would be a no starter for me. He died in it for a reason. He wanted to be one with the car.  Gotta respect that level of devotion so pass. There is always another one out there.

I had a friend who had his wish respected and had some of his cremated remains (sifted I think) poured down the carb. It was like pouring sand into the carb I was told by the pourer but that is what he wanted. I didn't hear how the engine ran after . The engine wasn't ruined but I am sure it did a number on the insides . The wife sold the car and It has a new owner now.

Well bought. One could always sell family members to Eli Lilly for product testing to make up the difference. I am truly a horrible person, I know. Since I am already going to hell, why hold back, right?
