When you want to buy or sell a classic car, you can't just open up a Kelly Blue Book and pick a figure from there. Each car that has been restored has its own unique features. Plus, some of the parts are still original, while some are not. My question is, would you need to seek out an appraser who specializes in classic cars, to get a proper dollar value for your car?

If I were really interested in selling it off and getting top dollar for it, yes I would. It is just the same when you are purchasing anything else in life, say a home for example. You move in and spend 10 years in the place, fix it up with upgrades or if its an older home restore it back to its original era. Wouldn't you want top dollar for that?

The Blue Book is still worth looking at. You have to have a general idea of what the car would normally go for. Plus, I am sure you checked that book when you made the original purchase, too, didn't you?

Agreed. The guys who specialize in such things know their stuff. If you want true value for your classic, you need to see a specialist and then sell it to someone who understands the industry and has an appreciation for it.
