150 wagon

After seeing what one went for at Barrett Jackson that price is a drop in the bucket make sure to check for rust in both front corners :anim_25:

How Much???

I, respectfully, have to disagree with the thoughts of buying this Handyman wagon for that kind of money. You could be buying a fully restored 2 door hardtop and pay less than that. You will never realize your money in return, if you decide to ever sell it...my top price, even if it's a rotisserie restored on the underneath and no rust, would be $20-25K...tops, because it's a wagon, not sedan delivery...Now, it's a nice car and matches the one you bought beautifully, but in the end, it's your money, your purchase, but you asked for our opinions, and I just gave it...no disrespect intended..JMHO....:anim_25::gba:bowtie-trifive

Hi,
getting rather technical, as I haven't seen the car, so I went to NADA car values for classic cars...here is what the site says a 150 2door wagon sells for in my area:

1957 Chevrolet 150
2 Door Station Wagon

Research another classic car
ValuesSpecial Notes
Values
Values Facebook
Original
1-MSRP Low
2-Retail Average
3-Retail High
Retail
Base Price $2,407 (1)-$12,550 (2)-$25,100 (3)-$32,200
Options: (change)
4 Speed Transmission $825 $1,050 $1,325
TOTAL PRICE: $2,407 $13,375 $26,150 $33,525

Blue is average, and to the right is high retail. I would be more comfortable with the average price, not paying over retail...JMO and NADA's:anim_25::shakehands::gba:bowtie-trifive
