It is all original with 47,682 actual miles. The car is very nice and belonged to a friend that passed away. I am looking to purchase it from his widow and want to be fair. There is some very minor rust bibles starting by the back of the top. The car is very nice. It is a one owner with full documentation. They built 130 of this model. There is very little information on the car on the net.

    Just an opinion but I’d say $35-45K depending on options.

    Nada guides values for your area are $53,200-$82,000.
    Full boat retail for that car is $120,500. Your playing in an expensive neighborhood.
    To recap: 1972 H/O Convertible, 455 w/W30 pkg and A/C.
    It sounds like the car needs work so $45k is fair.

    Thanks guys. I was thinking $40k. I suppose it will boil down to wether any of her relatives muddy the water.

    Oh they will, they have all seen Mecum and Barrett J so it definitely going to the $100k realm unless you are the luckiest guy in the World. Anyone would pay $40k for that car so immediately its worth much more like the $50-60k is realistic IMHO.....I hope you score it, I would love it too, btw its one of the most desirable Hurst Olds they made.

    In addition to my 1972 GS Stage 1 car I also own a 1972 Hurst Olds with the Sunroof option. I follow the Hurst Olds market and am a member of the Hurst Olds Club of America. As you may know, there were only 629 Hurst Olds made in 1972, of which 130 were convertibles, 220 Sunroof cars and 279 Hardtops (all with the 455 motor).

    As far as recent sales, a convertible sold back in January for $68,200, one in July for $49,500 and an unrestored convertible sold this month for $59,400. So, the valuations above are in the correct range.

    Note: the car you are looking at does have the original foam air cleaner sponge. The reproductions are solid black vs the green one in your photo's.

    FYI - You can find additional information on the website.

    Good luck with your pursuit.

    Thanks for the info. The relatives are getting involved but they want the car for free and the widow doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Her husband had it insured for 45k. I told her that was a big number but one that I was willing to pay. I know that that car was well maintained stored in heated garage never altered or damaged. All original one owner survivor. The widow said that she is going to sit on the car for a while and do nothing for now. I don’t blame her. I will be patient and stay in touch. I really appreciate the help from everyone here on the board

    2018 Collector Car Price Guide - from Old Cars Report Price Guide state #2 condition as $52,500 and #1 condition as $75,000. The car appears excellent so it is very likely at least a #2. They do not break down into Auto versus Stick or if W-30 or not.

    Hope you get the car. I used to see it around once in a while. $40-$48k seems plenty fair. Let us know what happens.
