    80 Road Runner on Ebay

    Not mine. Looks like the one from RK Motors a few years ago, back then it had 9800 miles, now 13,000. Originally from Ohio if the same car. Anyone have thoughts or info on this car? Looks like someone added a couple bird decals since then. Estimated value?

    I'm watching this car. It was listed at $18.5K now at $17.5K. If it doesn't sell and then gets listed with "make an offer" I'll offer $12K for it.

    Looks like a nice car. I really don`t know the value but I would say $17,500 seems to be on the high end. The color combo just doesn`t do it for me personally but to each his own.

    I paid $12000 us for mine with 0 rust which is amazing beings its lived its entire life so far in Canada. Cant say ive seen another in that same color. The thing I laughed at for the car on ebay says all original yet there is a ****load of overspray on the washer bottle. Click image for larger version.

    Yeah, a good engine compartment clean up and painting is needed for sure.

    May want to take a closer look first - it appears to have been a repaint (aside from the paint seen on the washer bottle and battery cover). When you zoom in the amount of orange peel suggest it needs a good wet sand/polish.

    Could be wrong but this may not gel with it being an "all original survivor."

    It is a fair amount of money, just my $0.02

    Not sure if that is paint on the battery cover and washer bottle or just grunge. The inner fenders and rad support look to be grunged up.

    the ad says 95% original paint so it may have had some touch up? Hard to tell about the orange peel if it's repaint or original. The factory paint jobs were, well,,,,,,,,,,left something to be desired and with 13,000 miles, it may never have been washed, waxed and worn enough to "unpeel" the paint, as happens after many years. I still remember when we went to pick up the new car back in '68, when I was 4 1/2 years old, (Coronet 440) and the orange peel was horrible, almost like a finger print proof finish on a refrigerator, lol!

    Undercoating is on the washer bottle and battery cover, not grunge,1980 cars were heavily undercoated if ordered

    I couldn't ride in Dad's cars for the first few weeks after he got them because of the stench of all that fresh undercoat. That smell together with the 70's boat ride and I'd puke. Ziebart for the win!
