Yeah there in good shape, only been repainted from what I can see, other than that there good, i didnt know what they would go for trying to squeeze every dime I can out of the useless stuff I wont need. ALso what would a center console go for?
My buddy maybe fixing it for a small price so I may get it on the road again,
Just gonna strip all the usless crap I wont need.
(dash, center console, seats,AC wiring and vents) just a rough idea on what I can get for them

A good shape console should be worth $100.00 all day long, maybe more.

Thanks, that 200 should be more than enough to fix my car and get it rolling hopefully.
Hope sense it runs I could finally get some better buyers.

I'm a little confused with your selling strategy. I realize you're trying to raise some money to get the car running...but, aren't the louvers one of the signature features for these Lagunas? And, by selling them, it might further diminish your buyer interest? Same with stripping the swivels, console and dash?

Well here is the thing I didnt really wanna part out with it unless I really had to, its been for sale for almost 2-3 months if not longer and Ive had no hits on it at all, mostly no shows and lowballers.
And im getting more people wanting parts for it more than a car and I'm in the hole of needing money pretty bad unfortunately.
And maybe selling the parts isnt the greatest but its some kinda money right now. If I wasnt in a bind I prob wouldnt sell off some of these stuff like the louvers.

Surprised at the lack of interest. But, you gotta do what you gotta do. Suppose those low-ballers are looking to make a round track car out of it? Or, worse yet...a demo derby car?

I've been going to demo derbys all my life and i can say this, no one around here uses g3's in derbys.  It probably has to do with the fact the same guys who run derbys are the same one who run figure 8, and they would never ruin what they consider the best platform for a stock car (or figure 8 car.)

You know im suprised also of the lack of interest here as well, but i also see it more describable more west of fl than here, like TX,AZ, etc etc, wish I had a trailer and a truck to pull it to give to someone who would use it for something decent, all in all its not in that bad of shape, its far from perfect but still a solid car.

Yeah...forgot about that title thing. I'm sure it's probably scaring off many potential buyers. Here in MN, it's a big p.i.t.a. to retitle if you don't get one with the car.

Unless its from a '73 it should bolt right on. BTW I think the car pictured has a '76/77 rear bumper on it.

Yes there are, and it looks like someone is determined to have you keep that car and drive it. Smile

Are you looking to move to a bench seat setup? What's in there now under the seat covers...the original swivels?

Sounds like you've got a '76 front end (not just the bumper)? Yeah...it will bolt on.

Too bad you didn't live closer to me. I'd donate the Laguna nose I can't seem to sell just so you could keep the car original.

Yeah the car its sitting on right now is a 1976 Malibu, he is making it a dirt track car, so he would swap with me, and ill have new door panals (sadly not the ones that have the Laguna S3 on them) but there still in great shape. and louvers im still on and off about cause they hide the ugly rust on the window, and he would buy my seats for 120 which i think its a decent price, should give me enough to buy a racing bucket seat for it.
I would love to put another front nose on my car orginal at somepoint in time if i ever find out someone is giving away or trade it. but i guess ill live with the mali nose till that day comes haha

I found my orginal build sheet for my car behind the pass side panal, what does this mean?
Does it add in value? if so ima hold off on doing all this aftermarket stuff and go orginal with the interior and resell it for some $$ if there is a chance

To the right person it might add some value. But, keep in mind, these aren't Corvettes, Mopars, etc. who's owners live by the Build Sheet. Guys buying our cars are more likely than not going to do a custom or modified build and aren't that interested in keeping it factory original. Nevertheless, it is cool to have that and do believe it could help sell the car. Post a pic for us.
