I've got a 73. They're cool cars. Last year of the muscle car era.
Take it. As too value, whatever you're willing to pay. The true value of a vehicle is not what you pay for it, but how it makes you feel. I say go for it. Does not matter cost as long as you're not starving to buy your car. A 73 cat is a good choice. Or, as some older, more traditional hotrodders would say, a step in the right direction. Note my timeline.
Their good cars I have a rare version in some ways since mine is only 1 of 1700 made. Anywho they are great cars and you will really enjoy it.
As far as value i only paid 600 bucks for mine
And i love it...almost sold it but nah i have plans!
