Pictures help. Car people are very interested in the model number, the number of doors, the type of transmission and such.

There is a tag on the firewall, in the engine compartment, on the passenger side. It will say something like 14G - XXX and some numbers. That tag information will tell us a lot.

But you must have pictures of the car from all angles, the interior, the engine compartment and so on. Has it been repainted in an original color, or in a color that someone thought looked nice? Likewise, has it been reupholstered in original fabrics, or in what someone thought looked nice?

There was a gorgeous green 4dr on ebay several months ago, listed twice, bids never reached $12,000. Car was almost perfect.

One of the main determiners of value, aside from the restoration, is the body style. There is a huge difference in price from a Starliner (hardtop) to a four door sedan.
