I recently came into possession of a 1948 Chevy panel van.Approx. how much is it worth?
I'm not a mechanic and I'm not exactly sure how much work is needed,but as is,it does not run.The body is in great shape(no dents or rust)but the paint needs touching up.

Try going on Barrett-Jackson and Kruse auctions sites and check past auction results. This ear pick up and panel trucks have really picked up in the last couple of years. These were a real specialty item until recently...much wider interest these days. For the modest restoration cost they have bid payoff. Near perfect original, you may try auction as is for that special buyer.

Bar/Jackson auction is like buying a six pack at the local wine and cheese store. I think their prices are unrealistic for the average person/car...IMHO

You would do better to look in Hemmings motor news, Ebay, Old Rides of course, Auto Rv online, etc.

Here's a questimate - In Michigan where I am rusting at --a 48 panel - motor not running - body is truely straight and only needing paint then it's worth 3000 and up. If it needs a little body work, filler, patches and such then the price drops - maybe to $1500. Because it's a 48 it quilifies as a street rod which moves it up a notch on resale as you are not restricked to the original drive train and parts. I'd study those sites, pick up a few Street rod books and check the back for ads, etc. It's a desireable truck being a 48 Chevy panel .. do your research before pricing it.
