I've used these guys before to source a professional appraiser.

Also try to find some documentation for other Bluebird coupes sold in the last two years, and what they sold for to show the appraiser when he comes. :tu:

Obvious dropped suspension and stretched tires makes direct comparison to recent local sales doubtful. You might really need a professional up on the rack end to end inspection to see if it is first road worthy, and then if the modifications are within State and Federal guidelines.

That bluebird is one stricking car. You have a true beauty. Good Luck with your appraisal. :tu:

Surprise! I knew that. If the vehicle is not legally roadworthy, no appraisal firm worth its salt will give a valuation.

Thankfully here in Texas that just means the lights, brakes, and horn have to work. :tu: :mrgreen:

And you're saying they can't/won't appraise an "under construction" car?

What motor setup does it have?

Can give you an AUD estimate.

Not if they have any semblance of a brain. Who knows what kind of abortion the owner will commit when the appraiser leaves? "Show me the money" or paraphrased "Are you finished f***ing with it yet so that I can see what you want me to sign up to as a "real" value when you wrap it around a light post."

I don't know one single person who could answer this question with a "yes". :P

Best Bluebird I ever seen. Nice color and the wheels.
