Looking at the pictures again, definitely looks like original stripes.
Alfa GTV 3.0
Ford Capri Perana V8
Chevy Lumina Supercharged

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

Based on what I see there, nothing less than R150k. Very original, likely to be original paint based on the roof and general detailing.

Hold out for R150k because I think you will get it.
Yes definitely a R150k car.

Question: Would this SS have a 350 or 308.
Some SS models had the 350.

5 l = 308

Green SS advertised, altered bodywork, re-sprayed non-standard colour = R 275 000. 150K for the very original looking red one we all know maybe 5 years ago prices.

that green car is a members car and he bought it last year not for near 275k and he's put tons of work and money into it since he's got it ...and it's an original 4 speed manual car ... But at the end of the day the cash talks so let's see ...

This is so close to home for me, as I get the exact same situation all the time in my real job.. And is exactly what our classic car market is ailing with..

Scenario:
I write my report, putting out certain commodity prices.

After a while I get a call from someone that wants to skin me for "putting a wrong price in the market, "influencing likely BUYERS".
Yeah sure in truly SA manner just go and put unrealistic values in the seller's head. Well done *slow clap*
The same day I get a call with another person angry at me for the low prices that I use in my reports, which "causes likely SELLERS to increase their expectations".
150K for the very original looking red one we all know maybe 5 years ago prices.
The above happens in reaction to the same report, quoting prices that was traded on the day...

Nobody has seen the car in person so no need for anyone to say anything until someone has a better idea of the condition , it could be fucked up rotten or it could be a gem ....

All good and relative to circumstance. Before the classic car hype kicked in yes 150K may even be plenty. Today the classic car scene is a different world. As with the Fairmont GT's and Monaro's these cars have apeal beyond here. This is one of the few surviving Chev SS's. Real is real, that in itself has value. This is an original Chev SS as unique to ZA as various other local specials. Theres probaly less surviving original Chev SS's here than XR8's, Perana's, Interceptor's etc. Not my rules, not a classic-car punter, just an ordinary enthiusiast. Just an observation acording to what one see's going down these day. Other thing is the belonged to a person since deceased, decisions to be made in the hands of a deceased's spouse that is probably unaware that spending maybe 5, 10, 15, 20, .......K on this car could virtually double the suggested 150K. This can't be an easy call for a lady to sort - suggestion could be that somebody close offer to assist/advise and help the person get a good price for it considering having already lost a husband. Plenty other cars around to flip.....AMC Forum could do a good dead for a person clearly in an awkward situation.

Correct, hence a gesture of goodwill in honour of a deceased enthiusiast-brother somebody close by offer to have a look and assist.
