    The only way you're not going to get scammed is to either know how to look over it well yourself or to find someone else who can.

      This. You just have to know a boomer that has one or hang out around boomers enough to be able to snag one. That’s how I got a mint c3 for under 5k.

      >mfw my dad had a 1971 w30 convertible but some homosexual hit us at 90mph wrecking it.
      He used the insurance money to buy another one that he restored but its sad that there is one less w30 car.

    If you're seriously asking for a W30 442 for "cheap" you may have brain damage. Only 3,100 W30s were built in 1970 which means they're minimum $60,000 USD to start with many fetching upwards of $80,000-$150,000.

    If you're talking about a Cutlass, or 442 clone you can buy some pretty cheap ones on Facebook marketplace. My advice? If you like the Cutlass bodystyle and don't mind a different brand, try shopping for a Buick Skylark since they're usually a lot cheaper on the used market.

    As far as not getting scammed and not buying a rust bucket? The answer to both is doing your research. No one can hand hold you here. Be thorough and do all your research. Find out where all he worst rust is. Be mindful these are 60 years old cars and unless you are paying premium for a restored example (which you sound like you arent) you are going to find rust and it will usually be in the rear quarters. Most rust is repairable either by yourself or at a shop depending on how handy you are/how much you wanna pay. Research, research, research.

    Oh, and a magnet is your best friend for detecting bondo'd over body panels.

        No, moron. They're $60,000 minimum starting price today, probably $25,000-30,000 for an unrestored rust bucket basket case. So few exist that it's unlikely you'd ever find an unrestored example and those that do exist... Yeah, the owners absolutely know what they got and they will charge market value.

        Original MRSP was something like ~$3,900 USD which adjusted for inflation is about ~$30,500 today. No, that doesn't mean you can walk up to a boomer and go "See, this is what I should be allowed to buy it for". Supply and demand, etc.

      Be careful, an old boomer trick is to take brake lathe shavings and mix it in with the bondo to trick you.

        Man, don't say that to me. Ive been stripping my car for painting and it's been in the back of my mind to triple check it. When I bought it the guy was up front about the work having been done but said no bondo was used and showed photos of all the metal work. I still have paranoia though. Maybe I should get a bondo detector for piece of mind before I do the new primer

      Not OP but I always kind of hated the Buick A-bodies because of the rear end being all pinched in. It looks like they backed into a telephone pole from the factory. Olds definitely had the sexiest midsize rear ends especially with the twin taillights on the '70s.

    Search faceberg marketplace for old granny model coupes. Like mid 70s malibus or galaxies with a straight 6. I'm in north florida and I see them all the time for under $5000. Buy one of those and then scour your local junkyards for an old ford 460ci(should be pretty common, they made them for like 40 years and they're piss easy to wrench on) or literally any gm big block. Or better yet, buy one of those old junkers and slap a new gm 4.3 in it. Bonus points if you give it some boost.
