    Default How much is a 1983 black magic worth?

    So somebody left a note on my front door saying that they were interested in my 83 capri.
    It needs a paint job but with the seats I purchased the interior is in good shape.It has new shocks,cat back dual exhaust,tires(but not the trx),new clutch.I also have the gold trx rims.
    What kind of price should I tell them?I dont want to sell but after finding out that my job will be ending next week I might consider it.

    Sadly, black magics are not really collectors items to anyone outside Capri nuts.

    I'd say 2K if its a rust free body, 3K with decent paint and perhaps 4-5K for a mint one. Which is a shame because they are just too cool for school.
    You mean I've been here 10 years?

    I was shocked they knew the exact year.I hope that they are capri nuts and really want a blackmagic.

    Usually we, the four-eyed pride folks, are the ones putting notes on doors. I'm interested to see where this goes.

    i can't even sell my 86 for 3 grand that's modded to hell and back (done right and tastefully)

    $500-1000, maybe slightly more if the paint is great, which it's not.

    I figured you sold that thing a long time ago James. What is the "magic" price now?

Size:  137.6 KBI have a 1981 black magic. It has no engine. It came with a straight six. The body is in fairly good condition, very little rust. I do not have the original rims. Does anybody have an idea how much it's worth? I have more photos but I think they may be to large. I took the pin strips off myself in high school.

    Thanks,
    Matt
