What is the value of a 1957 Chevy BelAir in excellent original condition?
True story (happened yesterday) I have a lawn mowing business and I received a call to give a quote on a lawn. I went over and an older lady, 82 years old was there and we started talking. I got the job and then she asked me if I liked cars? Of course I did and she took me to an old shed in her back yard. There was an original 1957 Chevy in mint condition (ugly color) but what the heck. Anyway she bought it new in 57 and her husband who is now deceased used to take it to car shows. She says its original, I forgot to look at the milage I was so busy running my hand over the perfectly smooth paint and drooling. Any way its a hard top and I would like to but it. The interior is also all original. I also forgot to open the hood and see what engine. I am going back tomorrow and will look at the VIN number. Any help you can give me as to what I should pay would be helpful. Thanks, Steve

Looked at car again .. its a 4 door 6 cyclinder / NO RUST on body or frame ... 94,000 miles. Never driven in snow. Trunk has original mat and spare tire (still good). Paint under mat is almost like new. I dont think I am going to buy it. But it is a beautiful car. :-)

Oooh.....you lucky dog....
Unfortunately a 4 door with a 6 cylinder can bring down the price a little, but the value of the car could be anywhere between $8,000 to $15,000.

nadaguides.com or collectorcarmarket.com has a pricing guide to give you a rough estimate.

It is very important to know the exact value of car before dealing, irrespective of whether you are buyer or seller. Well if you have any doubts regarding the price of any vehicle you could refer to Edmunds.com, however there is a more practical alternative to get in touch with some online dealers like autopartsfair.com or mypartshop. They will certainly help you out with the valuation process.
