What Are Vincent’s Survivors Worth?

Honda 600 and Chevy Confederate

A while back Reader Vincent Q sent us some photos of the cars that are currently in his collection of 13! He’s been following the site for a while and thought he would send in two of his cars to see what you guys think they might be worth and if anyone would be interested in giving either of them a new home. The cars he sent in are as different from each other as is possible, but both are unrestored survivors. One is a 1931 Chevy Confederate pickup and the other a 1972 Honda AZ600. You can reach Vincent here by email!

1931 Chevy Pickup

Here is what he has to say about both vehicles:

This truck has never been altered or Rat Rodded. Has the original 6 Cylinder motor with just 1418 miles. It started and I drove it off the trailer on my Uncles farm in Nebraska before I moved out to Colorado In 1979. I understand from who I purchased it from in Nebraska that it was a FireTruck for a small town in Iowa, thus the low miles.

1972 Honda AZ600

And then there is my 1972 Honda Z Coupe. It is a survivor with 50691 original miles. Sold originally at Ralph Schomp Honda here in Colorado. Starts, runs, stops, and as I understand from a little research, possibly one of only about 300 Drivers left in the USA! Mine was licensed, insured, and passed Colorado emissions Never restored, very complete with spares collected over the years. I have 13 vehicles and it is time to find new homes for the little Honda and the old Chevy.

So what do you think Vincent’s cars are worth? Would you give either of these a new home? I hope he can find new homes for both of these machines and wish him good luck! I just wonder what else he has in his collection?

    Not sure what he means by “drivers”, but I was shopping for one of those Hondas last year and there are piles of them for sale, typically on the west coast. There are also two of them in a local junkyard near my town. The cool thing about those is that they have an air cooled 600cc engine, very similar to a motorcycle engine.

    I know that little Honda well. Back in 1971 I was a mechanic at a Toyota dealer in Schenectady, New York when the dealer decided to take on a second brand – Hondas. One of my fellow mechanics, Tom, bought one of those – for about $1200 I believe – and, since we were dating a couple of girls who were best friends down in Connecticut, every weekend we’d pack our sleeping bags and a change of clothes in that Honda, pile in and head southeast. 65 mph to 70 mph was possible on the interstate if you were going downhill and had a tail wind but you never wanted to run into a headwind on the interstate or our speed dropped about 20 to 30 mph depending on whether we were going uphill or down at the time. The car didn’t like the hills on the secondary roads in Eastern New York, Western Mass and Northwestern Connecticut, when we’d slow down to about ten or fifteen miles per hour with no place to pull off the road and a bunch of cars beeping at us from behind, I used to open the passenger door, stick my leg out and pretend I was pushing the car along scooter style up the hill, to the delight of the folks behind and to Tom’s chagrine.

    The old car business is like the furniture business. There’s an ass for every seat. You just have to find the ass that has the $$ that want’s it. An old car has intrinsic value. It’s only worth anything when you buy it, when you borrow money on it and when you sell it. Been in the business for 30 years and it’s the only true thing I have ever learned in those years.

    For me there would be no choice at all. The Honda has Zero appeal to me while the Chev has got my attention. I wish I could give it a new home but I’m full up with projects. Maybe if I could afford to put an ‘RE’ in front of ‘tired’ I might be able to do something else.

    I own a 71 600 driver as well. According to hemmings as of 2014, a picture perfect mint condition A condition is $16k. The span for a driver in c or d condition ranges from $3200 to $7200. Yes, a wide a gap. Please dont think i rateing your car. Im just repeating hemmings. Thanks john b

    The Fire Engine Pick Up may have low miles but that isn’t neccicerily good, the miles are low but as a part of the call out process you may find it was 1418 tough and slogging miles, Start, full throttle, Brake over and over again will guarantee some wear.
    That said Service vehicles are usually well maintained with top of the shelf parts so its a chance thing.
