I have a 85' 3.8 V6 thunderbird with 66500 original miles that has been covered in a garage for 20 yrs. with not a scratch on the exterior or a knob missing in the interior. All original... All like NEW. Please give me a rough estimate of value on my car please. I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Here is a 1985 listed for $2,295

And here is a 1983 listed for $10,000. Why the big discrepancy I sure don't know, maybe the '85 does not run, and no way will the seller get $10k for this 1983

$10K for and '83? NOPE! NO WAY! The 3.8 in the '85 is super reliable. There are no pricing guides that I know of for this vintage. You could tart at something like $2K and see what happens. Most of the older cars in great shape around here start at $1995.


You didn't give enough info to go directly to your car but you can fill in the blanks. Go to this link and be honest in putting a condition on your car. I would say these prices are the MOST you could expect to get. http://www.nadaguides.com/Classic-Cars/1985/Ford The $10k price is what the car cost new probably.
