    whatever someone is willing to pay for it. check classic kelly blue book, it should give you a number to start at.
     
  3. Most of those I see are pretty rusty.
    You don't say if it runs or not.

    Probably a grand to me. maybe more for someone else.

    I'll give you a ham sandwich with sauerkraut and mustard on marbled rye, a baggy of Funyuns, and a Diet Dr Pepper.

    The pickle will come at extra cost.

    between $500 - $5000 depending on amount of rust and condition of drivetrain (and ability to get it to where the right buyer lives)

    .....interior looks good.....nice car by the way!

    Send it to an action a survivor car can be worth a pretty penny, but it has to run and have no rust.

    its another new guy with the worlds stupidest question. If you sell it to me for $10 is that what its worth? If I am stupid enough to pay you $50000 for it, is that what its worth?

    Shitty pictures of a car by a guy to lazy to either:

    a) do even the simplest bit of research as to the value

    b) to even drag the carcass outside in the sun, rinse of the pigeon shit and dirt to take a photo.

    I paid 200 bucks for my '59 'Bird. That should be enough.

    After lookin' it over, the car seems pretty clean. I'm sure an afternoon of detailing will make it look killer. The interior seems really nice. Wash off the mold and shampoo the carpets, buff and wax the the paint. Should be worth a good $2500-3500 if no rust. Just my two cents.

    It depends on what you want to do with the car, if you want a show car you need to think about how fast all the chrome peices add up and they do. I am restoring one now its a landau model like this one, if the trim is in good shape get it the motors come a dime a dozen. I bought mine for 2000 and yours looks to be in better shape than mine.

    Nice interior,...doesn't appear to have much rust,...I'd offer $2 k for it. Does it run? or, at least, crank?

    If you are planning on making it a project to keep and drive $2000. If you are thinking about buying it for resale,move on cause even nice drivers don't bring much,if you can get rid of them.

    Its worth only what the next guy is willing to pay. If you find someone who's willing to shell out a few gs take it if your good with 500 you should have no problem selling unless the frame is rotten. A good title is a must in some states ( like Ohio) but remember this there is a buyer for everything and a sucker around every corner. Psycho sean

    you musta crossed paths with my buddy Jonathan at some point. his ideal meal is funyuns and dr. pepper.

    if it's running and solid I say worth about $3500-5 in these parts. If flipping it i'd plan less than the low end.

     
  28. ..........Better to send it to an auction.:rolleyes:
