1987 Corvette Hatchback

by Tatum
(Pelican Rapids, MN)

We recently bought a 1987 Corvette Hatchback that had been sitting in a Bail Bondsmen Garage, due to owner went to jail. We have put a lot of work into the car, new paint job, reupholstered the seats, new tires, etc. Now we want to sell the car but do not have any idea how to value? It does not look like all the other 1987 Corvettes. It has a fin on the back, ground effects all around and a scoop on the hood with 2 little triangle openings on hood. I have compared it to a Callaway, but it is an automatic so that is not possible, but the hoods look similar. Also compared it to the Greenwood, also some similarities. I have absolutely no idea how much to ask if I decide to sell. The car has approximated 85,000 miles and runs good. Any help in trying to value this car would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Many factors to consider on pricing any vehicle. try NADA on line for used Car Book Values (starting point)... once a book value starting point is determined, now weigh it $$ against current ACTUAL CASH VALUES? What makes this particular vehicle worth more OR less than market Actual Cash values? Stock/original unmolested...is worth more usually...custom additions (scoops & body kits etc...are personal preferences)....they could make it worth less to some...and more to others that like that stuff? All depends on the actual vehicle. drive by a few collision centers and ask a licensed appraiser (not a car dealer guy) for a fair market value price for your vehicle. usually most guys will give you their honest opinion at no charge? but they may point out things that you may not want to hear, so be prepared. hopefully this helps Thanks Ned
