    If you go to www.nadaguides.com enter your zip code and click on "classic cars" button, you can look up the value of any pre-1980 car based on its condition, installed options and mileage. You can also do a search on eBay motors for that particular vehicle and see what they are actually being sold for across the entire country. This will give you a pretty good idea of what would be a reasonable asking price. The way to thank the people that help you here is to click on the “thumbs up” button on the bottom of the answer. Please do so if you find their answer helpful or they may just stop trying to help in the future! Thanks and good luck!

    You'd have to give us a detailed description of its condition inside, outside and under, and also what engine and options it has. A price guide is a good start but you have to pay attention to the various "conditions" listed and be honest about it. NADA is good for very nice cars but they are generous, and they don't really address cars that have faded paint, need work, etc.
