If you're looking at it as a daily driver it's not worth anything as far as the insurance companies are concerned. It's a 41 year old vehicle, that's it. But if you're looking at it as an antique or collectible, that's a different story. Contact Grundy Insurance or another Collectible Insurance Company to get a value on it. Maybe you could get a personal loan to buy it. You'd probably be better off that way since you would hold the title and could sell it at any time without any hassles. Financing something this old is going to be a challenge. Good luck to you! Jim
