The value of a car
I believe that all cars have both an intrinsic value and a market value ( the price you sell it for )
To me the cars I now own or have owned or someday want to own have to appeal to me and that is the intrinsic value. What I could sell it for is almost meaningless
As an example, right now I have my Tbird, a Mk2, a Jag 420, a 66 Mustang fastback GT and two Crosley roadsters,
Of these cars the Mustang has become the car that is gaining in popularity at the fastest rate and is getting an almost cult following. And
demographics are on its side.
The Crosleys are another story. They get no respect even though they were way ahead of there time. 4 wheel disk brakes in 1949.
An overhead cam engine with an aluminum 5 bearing crankshaft and an iron block. A 44 cubic inch, 750 CC engine producing 26.5 HP @ 5400 RPM
that weighed 150 lbs. Cheap, poorly made and Small when America wanted BIG. My 49 Hotshot was painted Chartreus with red vinal seats. Pure charm. AND 4 wheel DISK BRAKES in 1949
The Mk2 I bought because I loved the body and this one is lumped. Ford 302 and an AOD 4speed A/T. I should have known better than to buy a Jag
as my brother had owned a 51 120M and a new 54 140 DHC, SE.
Some context on my Mustang. After I sold the 66 Shelby GT350 I bought it as when working on the Shelby it became apparent it was really just
a Ford 66 Mustang GT hipo with a lot of available add-ons and can be duplicated at reasonable cost.
I have no opinion as to the " VALUE " of the car you are trying to price. I think that is merely retail. Pete
