Without pics and other info, I would ballpark it around $3K.


The key is in the body- "fair condition"? If it has no rust, anything else on the body can be fixed- even a little rust can be fixed because that car is worth it- rare and valuable, it doesn't matter if it runs or not, there are not many '57s left- there weren't many to begin with- don't get rid of it for less than $5000 and you might be able to get a lot more from someone who gets hot for it


And leave it original, don't even polish it- how many original '57 VWs are left?!
