Default Value of 77 Vette

Iím the original owner of a 1977 corvette. It has approximately 65,000 original miles and all but the generator numbers match. It is a T-Top, white with red interior, 350, auto with California emissions. It is in good shape with minor scratches and if anything is wrong with it, itís due to the fact that it just sits in the garage...

I was wondering about the possible value of it???

Thanks

Billy Boy

Being the original owner counts quite a bit, and the miles are very low, but we're still talking '77.

Here are the numbers from the usual suspects, and all are quite high in today's market.

I'm guessing you mean the alternator has been replaced?

Did you list all options? Has the car always been garaged?

My "guess" without pics if it's as you described would be in the $12-14k range to the right buyer.

If the paint is in good condition and is the original paint, you may be able to find someone who really wants a true 'survivor' and will pay more than it is worth to the general public. I know the car is like another member of the family, but that really doesn't hold any value to anyone else. Today, your car would sell for $6-9K. If someone wanted a '77 survivor, you might get $10K or a bit higher.

A more realistic range - $5,000 to $7,000
