    LT1 Prices

    Hey, I'm thnking of getting an LT1 Camaro this summer. I'd like to make it my DD, so I was wondering what kinda prices they are going for. I'd like to get an M6 Z28 and I wouldn't complain if there were a few mods. Thing is that I don't want a ton of miles though. So, what do you guys think?

    I wouldn't be concerned so much about mileage more so I would be concerned with maintence. LT1 cars with 100+ have been proven performers as long as they have been properly maintained. My car has been well maintained and at 97k, it's a monster. Most M6 LT1s for really nice ones I would expect to pay around $6500+ depending on mileage.

    FYI- Many heads/cam LT1's do well over 400rwhp properly configured on a budget! Have fun!

    Shit
    Mine is a '95 with 67k on it and I'm selling it to a friend for $5,000 so there are good deals out there. Mine has been wrecked before though and is missing front and rear crash supports and the air bags. The deals are out there, you just have to look around some. Personally, I'm saving up for a LS1 Trans Am because I love the looks. Otherwise I'd just keep the Camaro and put money into mods.

    5000$ seems pretty good for a 95 with 67K miles, but after a car's been wrecked such as your has, the value goes down drastically. I wouldnt pay more than 2500-3000$ for your car if it was hit hard enough to have the airbags deploy (regardless of what had been repaired).

    I got a 95 and bought it for $7,500 with 100k Original miles. No wrecks or anything. Is in good condition. But ive seen some outragous ones with like 100k miles and a 98 or 99 going for like $16,000. So it all depends really

    I gabe $8.500 for my 97 back in Dec. It has 70k miles on it now and I am the third owner . I did a carfax on it, and I suggest you do one as well before you buy anything. Good 94-97 are getting harder to find esp ones with low miles

    i bought my 95 Z28 with 58k (A4 tho) from an older lady so i'm pretty sure it wasn't beat on (she also had papers on oil changes done at the dealership every 3k) for 5,000

    If you are still looking, 40k to 70k LT1 shouldn't run over $8500 TOPS!! A perfect convertible maybe a bit more but you are certainly in the $5,000 to $8,000 bracket depending on certified 'receipt-backed' maintenance (as mentioned above). Carfax always a good idea. Good luck!

    I bought my 96 M6, about 3 yrs ago with 70K miles... and paid $6k for it. Have spent $10k invested in it... so far. The odometer just turned 90k. It's my DD as well, for now anyways.

    LT1 camaro's are so awsome looking. Specially with a cowl hood..Miss mine...You should be able to find a decent one for 5000. The miles shouldnt be as much a concern as maint. A well taken care of LT1 will last 200K+.

    Some cars are actually hit really lite and deploy bags. But I agree for the most part. In its condition ,I wouldnt have either.
