I wish more people understood that very thing Ringo. Perhaps this hobby would be a little more affordable and common sense would prevail. My gawd, what am I saying?

I'm thinking there are a lot watchers but not a lot of "normal" tire kicking buyers out there for this one on eBay at $499,999.00 (not a typo).

Simply put, there is no other 1969 Chevelle like this in the world. After two years and 5,000 build hours, this car recently debuted at SEMA 2018. The Chevelle rides on a custom speedtech chassis that allows for 305 wide tires in the front and 345s in the rear. A subtle wide body in the rear was done to accent the rear end of the car with its custom spoiler and bumper. The hood cowls were stretched and paired up with a stretched front bumper and custom front spoiler, complimenting and completing the perfect package. The car is powered by a 700hp LSA and stops courtesy of 15” wilwood brakes. The interior was completed by the world renowned Sid Chavers at a cost of $32,000. Power seats, power windows, heat and A/C.  JL and focal make up the stereo. All other work was performed by the highly award winning Ironworks Speed and Kustom. I could go on and on, I would not know where to begin but so much has been done to this car.  I wanted the build to be something that is timeless, that's what Ironworks does. I have invoices for over $510,000 that detail every single thing done and hundreds of photos from start to finish. Car is appearing in September 2019 Super Chevy. Pro touring, resto mod.  Price is firm, this is a great opportunity if you're interested in this quality of build.  Save yourself a few years and a little bit of money. Feel free to call or text with any questions 

 

How about a Ford F-150 found on Facebook Marketplace?Just  $1000. Expensive terrarium or potted plant holder, if you ask me.

While it's fairly well done, I kinda like it.   It's NOT a Sunbird, it's NOT a 79.  Its an Astra 75 or 76 my guess.

While I would normally not disagree with you JUSTA, and this does look like an Astre to me, the 78-79 Sunbird Safari wagons were pretty much carry over Astres but called Sunbirds.

78 Sunbird.... like mine (80) w/square headlights for coupe N hatchback.  Didn't know you could get a wagon.  I can see the Sunbird logo on the fender of your pic.

77 advertizement

Don't mean to argue, but why would they still be selling a round headlight version in 79??  76 was the last year for round headlights in the Firebird as well.

I can't explain your pic's,  I'm confused.... Google is also showing a square headlight 76 Sunbird....never happened.

My guess is that it was cheaper to carry over the Astre wagon sheet metal than change the dies to make the newer Sunbird notchback and hatchback front clip look seamless on the carry over wagon body.

Remember that the Vega/Astre were classified as the H-body. The Sunbird/Monza/Skyhawk/Firenzas were the H-special. So while the basic unibody structure from the Vega/Astre was kept, all the exterior sheet metal was changed. So changing the wagon's bigger sheet metal was probably consider too costly until much later in the program.
