You won't get $7500, but the car is worth much more as parts than you will get from the crusher.

What’s the car worth in your opinion?

It's hard to say without seeing the condition of the exterior sheet metal and trim. The rear axle and PS will probably sell pretty quickly. The PG and 283 may have some value as cores. If you have the body parts another builder wants, and they are usable without needing a lot of work, I can see at least $2-3K and possibly more. This is definitely a parts car and is too valuable to be crushed.

Unless you need to get rid of it right now, my suggestion would be to shoot a lot of pics and post it on craigslist.

thanks for the reply. that is too bad really, I was hoping someone would want the old girl. but pulling her apart is not what I am going to do.

always thought these old three seater's were rare.

I'll give her a few more days and see what pans out before I I haul her to the crusher guy.

Three things on the car that should not go to the crusher if you are serious about doing it.
2nd and 3rd seats with all hardware.
Gas tank

I have a 56 Belair 9 passenger and my know someone that may be interested in the seats and tank.

It would be a shame for either car to go to the crusher.

Crushing these cars MAY bring you at MOST, $150.00 per car. Take the time, be a little patient, someone WILL be interested. I do think you're asking a way too much; I would say the 55 2 door sedan is a $1000.00 to $1500.00 car, but it's hard to say without seeing it. The 57 210 wagon, $1500.00 to $2000.00, maybe a little less, but it is a RARE 9 passenger car, and that's a BIG selling point. I'm going to send my friend who deals in these cars/parts a heads up. Craigs List will get you more exposure, but then you'll be dealing with every Craig's List FREAK out there; looky-loo, wanna bee's, I'll have to ask my wife-Mom-Parole Officer sort of thing.

I'll add a bit to 56sedandelivery's post.

The price is probably about right for the '55 150 sedan, it looks fairly rough, the number of people interested in 150s right off is fairly low, and then they are interested in '57s, although I like the '56 the best.

Now, for the '57 210 wagon, it is rare, it is a great color, it looks to be in fairly good shape, and original 8 cylinder. So I MIGHT say it could be worth maybe $2500 to $3000, if somebody was enthusiastic about that model. I myself like a '57 210 much better than a BelAir, the two-tone really stands out so much better.

So, now whoever gets it will be doing major and expensive restoration to it, without it being a convertible where you end up with an expensive result. They will be doing it because they love the car. So they will need a bit of a break at the beginning just to get started. They'll probably live far away, so they'll have to have it transported, another expense.

I too would agree with Ross1956 though, and refuse to part either one out. This '57 is an excellent beginning, at the right price it will sell. It could be put on eBay just to get rid of it at some point if all else fails.

What is the rush to crush it?
Are you building condo's?
If I read your post right
it is a will run with a little effort no reverse car.
Put it on Ebay and pledge to help with loading.
I bet you won't be sorry.
Think about it.

Ain't to proud to think out loud.
