Hello, Wow! Great car! It's hard to tell what the value is without knowing the definition of "some restoration." Here are numbers from the Manheim Gold Book: Fair condition: 6,000 Good condition: 30,000 Excellent condition: 57,000 Show condition: 66,900 I'm guessing without the original drivetrain and with the restoration needed, probably in 6000-30,000 range.

But not in the community. I am part of said community.
