I think if you post or link to some good pictures of the overall car and some detail shots, that some here can give you an idea.

If you want to sell it, run a low reserve, nicely done listing on eBay and the market will tell you what it is worth.

Also, if you are an SDC member, Bill Oliver in the LA area is the SDC official Auto Insurance Evaluator and can help determine the value of your car for insurance purposes.

Do you want to sell it or are you curious about the value?

Pictures are worth 1,000 words (or more) in these endeavors.

Other Random thoughts: Is the car in Milwaukee? Other rust - trunk? floors? I assume it is running? Automatic? The windows it needs are cracked? missing? etc etc

I don't see how you can properly appraise a car without actually seeing it. It takes me 3 to 4 hours to do a proper on site appraisal.

A guesstimate from the information given: $3000 to $3500.

Driver's window missing! Solid floor pans , Needs a paint job. small hole in lower left front fender. It is in milwaukee. Not tryin to sell it. It does run, needs tailight covers, needs all dash knobs , Interior needs a complete make over. Solid trunk floor. master cylinder, replaced. You know I'm incline to say it does need to be seen in person to be appraise. I just had it at a shop two weeks ago , and he said he would appraise it. But you know after following the forum this long, I thought I could get a sincere appraisal of some kind. Thanks for the ideas.

As mentioned, a picture is worth a 1000 words. Even cars decribed as 'MINT' usually are not.
