Rare? They made 2899 of them. Most are probably still around, right? Should have 3177 in the VIN. Probably doesn't even have carpet, just vinyl mat. Pretty cool.

By rare i mean how often do you see a straight 6 car anymore. Most Everyone rips them out and puts in a 350 or a 455. Sory for the confusion on that

Oh, I know that. No confusion or issue. I was purely joking. This actually is a pretty rare car. That was the lowest amount of A-body cars built for any 1968 model.

I should have used a 'smiley'. or a 'wink'.

Wow! Nice color and all, but I'm not hating or bashing. Is this car worth 10,000? When I asked what my car was worth I got 8,000 on the high end. This is a stripped down base model F-85. How can that be worth more than a fairly well optioned Cutlass S?

No, it's not worth 10k

Agree. It's not worth $10K. But, some people really like very low optioned cars.

I'll bet because so few were built that's what is driving the asking price.

Wow, cool car. I grew up (in the 80's) driving my Dad's F-150's with the 3 speed on the column. I'd love to have another column shift some day. I think it would be cool to have a Cutlass like that. I am surprised at just how many people don't know what a 3-on-the-tree is.

You don't see them anymore because you didn't see them then. There's a reason why they are rare, and like Pontiac Azteks, rarity doesn't always equal value.

Just to clarify, that is 2898 (officially) F85 6-cylinder Sports Coupes total, not a 3 on the tree production number.

I like base model cars less options the better.
This is how I rate a car
1. body and frame Is the car 99% rust free, straight with no major accidents.
2. original and is it all there un molested, trim and chrome condition
3. Color, model, options

Every one values or rates a cars value on there own scale I don't think $10,000 is over the top if it is a true CA car.

Again, few were built because they weren't popular when new. That doesn't make them worth more now. People who didn't grow up in the 1960s can't appreciate how undesireable a car like this was. "Rare" post cars in general were simply seen as low-rent loss leaders (yeah, and raw material for drag cars, but that was a VERY limited audience). Two door hardtops with performance (or at least, the appearance of performance) were popular then and remain popular and more valuable now.

I can't say that I 100% agree with that statement. I agree that low rent base models like the above listed car are not worth as much. On the otherhand I think a W-30 post car is worth more than a hardtop for it's rarity. There were more automatic 442's than 4-spds so that made them more popular when made but we all know 4-spds are worth more now.

I didn't say that rarity was not related to value. I said that rarity ALONE was not. There were about ten times as many Chevelle SSs made than 442s. Which one brings a higher average price at auction?

And having lived through the 1960s, I guarantee you that no one (except die-hard racers) would have ordered a post W-30 if he/she had a choice.

What makes the post cars cool is the drag history and DR OLDS magazine advertising. They also look almost as clean as the hard top.

I know a lot of car guys like convertibles and they are worth more coin. We all have different tastes and I'm not big convertibles or air conditioning, power windows etc.


If I wanted a popular car I would buy a Chevy. I think all these rare cars will not be as valuable in the future as what young guy would want one over new gen Camaro, Challenger or mustang. The only reason I love these cars is because I grew up with them, and they are far from perfect. To me though the body lines of the 68 and 69 make up for any flaws the car might have, I think this is my youth talking again.

When most of us were kids, these cars were about as popular as the clap or ranks up there with dating the ugly girl. No self respecting kid wanted to be seen in one of these, or even a 4 door. No offense, but unless someone just falls in love with it, I see it remaining on the market a long time at that price.

7 years ago my wife told me to go out and buy a new toy. She found it crazy that I would park a brand new car in the garage but drive a classic everyday. She said i was nutts I was in my early 20's but got tired of seeing the same cars around this city so started looking for something different. Been working on it for about 2 years but I know when I'm done it will be priceless to hear those words. " Boy haven't seen one of those in I don't know when" J if u read this don't kick ur self but would have paid double the price. So it is like some of you say "it is only worth what people will pay" In working on my car both my daughter12 and son 10 have taken an interest in completing there own cutlasses. (So classic muscle cars will only die if we let it) My elders all drove classics firebirds/camaros/ El Camino/mustangs/chevelles and cutlasses used to love getting dirty Lending a helping hand fixing a car when i was younger. But my uncle says it was the joy rides he gave me when ever he would tweek his car and burn tire down the block with me holding on to the door a$$ stuck to the seat. Like most of us on here that's how we all became addicted. So with that said no offense to anyone but some of us would still prefer to be different then the same. I have always said that classic cars deserve to be driven not kept in a garage but that is just my belief and my 2 cents.
