ANTIQUE, CLASSIC & CUSTOM AUTOMOBILE APPRAISER SEES GAINS IN US CUSTOM CAR MARKET

1957 CHEVROLET BEL AIR CUSTOM CONVERTIBLE

 FORT PIERCE, Florida - The US Custom Car market has seen the value of certain types of vehicles increase over the last few years. A 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Custom convertible equipped with a 355 horsepower Vortex 5.3 motor, a 4L60E Transmission, a Ford 9"rear, American polished wheels and a custom leather interior sold for just under $90,000.00. This particular car would have been valued by an automobile appraiser for roughly half that amount not very long ago.



1950 MERCURY CUSTOM COUPE

 A 1950 Mercury Custom Coupe equipped with a 454 engine, a 700R4 Overdrive transmission, a 9" Rear, Air Ride Suspension, A/C, Power Windows, Doors, Seats and Trunk, Two-Tone Paint, Custom Interior and an upgraded stereo sold for $70,000.00. A recent appraisal of the car would have been for approximately $50K.



1932 CUSTOM FORD 5 WINDOW COUPE

A Customized 1932 Ford 5 Window Coupe equipped with a 333 Cubic inch Ford V-8, a Ford C-4 Transmission, a modified Ford 8" Rear, Heat, A/C, American Mag Wheels, Custom Leather Tuck & Roll Interior and disc brakes all around sold for $55,000.00 - significantly more than it would have brought just a few years ago.

As prices on antique, classic and custom cars begin to stabilize, we appraise more of them than we have in recent years. Sales are up as are selling prices. Good times for the US custom car market are also good times for automobile appraisers.
