It looks like a really well preserved example, wearing the '76-only Lime Metallic. Finding a solid and complete car is the only realistic way to have a nice G-3. The price is way high, but it also signals that the car is solid & might be worth it. Anyway there is negotiating room built in when the price is set where it is.

I also see the Economizer Gauge package. It gives all gauges plus a vacuum gauge (as opposed to a tach)  to show when you are driving economically. A 400 small block was last installed in passenger cars in 1976, and the supply of good 400 cores have dried up. I've had fun in a torquey smog-era 400 SBC.

Neat!  I was just trying to think - when was the last time I've seen a lime green dash and steering wheel...

Looks like a good car.

I agree with you on that one Bill, the interior really pops,.....

 

My friend had a Laguna, not sure what engine it had but he drove the berries out of it....but that car really hauled......

Good if you like eating hotdogs with lots of relish on them ... you can drip and drop eating inside your car.

My first impression was way over priced but then I looked at the car and thought about it a bit, Can Ams in this shape break $20,000 US and good 73 GTO's also hit and break $20,000.

This seems to be as good as it can get here, especially with the 400 and are those not swivel buckets in there. I think this is a fairly rare piece and with that one year only colour you'd be hard pressed to find a comparable. While I'm personally not stepping up at $24,995 there is bound to be someone out there that will bite on it.

I'd have to drive this car with my eyes closed (which wouldn't be safe). Yuck.

12G car because of the ugly interior.

Same dealer has this 73 442 for sale. 34995 for this one which is a bit rich for a 350 car with non stock upholstery

Ugh!  Who thought it was a good idea to put that rear spoiler on it? doh

That Cutlass S based 442 has the swivel buckets, the only other G-3 that used them beside the Chevelles & Monte Carlos. If I remember correctly the Olds swivel buckets had the center cushion of the seat reversible so that you could have either cloth or vinyl turned out.

 

The spoiler really is a spoiler as it spoiled the car. I feel that way about Judge spoilers as well (unless it is on a real Judge).

In my ever so humble opinion the best spoiler on a GM musclecar was the one on the 70-72 Buick GSX

I agree Todd.  I like the way it was integrated into the styling of the car, extra points for continuing the stripe over it!

The spoiler on the 442 looks like it is off of something more modern.  It does not fit the car in the least.

 Yes & yes.

At 17 I used a shortened station wagon spoiler on my '74 Honda Civic ... it fit good.

 I'm sure it looked cool!  biggrin  We all did stuff like this to our beaters back in our teenage years, but we didn't expect to sell it for the equivalent of $35K! wink

I was wondering if it came off of one of these, but there are minor detail differences between the two...
