In a case like that its a supply and demand kind of thing. If you don't absolutely need the money now then hold on to it until you're happy with the offer. It all depends on how good of shape the body is and a few other factors also. You find someone who's dad had that car when he was young then he will most likely pay more for it than someone who is just looking for a project.
