If you would like an idea what the car is worth, pop "NADA" into your web browser and click on NADA guides. Go to classic car value and click on proper year, make, etc. and it will give you a ballpark value in different vehicle conditions. But keep in mind that a car is worth whatever one is willing to pay for it. Sounds like a good opportunity if you like that type of car. You do not run by 52 Chevys everyday anymore.
