Yes, the Kelley Early Car Edition should have that (check your local library), and I believe that the NADA classic and collectible appraisal guide has it also. A 1965 Porsche went for $4,400-5,000 depending on model and a '66 VW bugs $1,500-2,000 depending on model (the cabriolets in both cases being the most expensive).

Mr. Shiftright, I have some old Nova (70s) and Toyota ('79 - '81) Chilton Manuals that I am willing to give away to anybody that needs them instead of tossing them in the recycling bin. Do you know of anybody or anyplace that would take them?

Possibly the donation section of your local library, often called the "Friends of the Library". They take donated books, clean 'em up, rpice 'em, and sell them, giving the money to the library for necessary items like lamps or scanning pens or computers, etc.
#15 of 21 1947 Chevy Fleetmaster

Original owner died now his son is trying to sell it. Been offered $10k but won't sell to anyone who will change it in any way. This car still has the original factory seat covers in it. No flaws at all, aside from the "new" paint job done in 1956 (original color matched), engine rebuild in 1958, and tires somewhere along the line. We want this car to go to a collector if anyone. Can anyone help?

Well, if he's trying to sell it, he should just sell it, I think. $10K is already way over market value---what else does he want? This is not a classic and barely a collectible car. It's just a nice old Chevy. If someone wants to change it to their own tastes, there is no harm done to history. We aren't talking Duesenberg here. Besides, it is not realistic to expect someone esle to understand one's own emotional attachment to a car. Time to let go and get on with life, I would advise...and grab that person who offered $10K by the ankles and hold on to him tightly until the check clears!

Carfreak, I went through the same thing, selling a car that had been in the family since new. It was a '67 Skylark 4-door sedan, just old and not collectible. I see it every so often and they've done a few things to it I didn't like at first, like taking off the fender skirts and putting on factory styled-steel wheels, but at least it means they think the car is special (no pun intended; it's a Buick, get it?).

1979 Pontiac Grand LeMans Special Two-tone
Beige/Copper 310 in3 2-bbl with approx. 75000 miles
This from my mother's estate. Interior is in excellent shape (usually dash fade) and exterior is good. Not sure what this is worth, but there may be someone out there who is interested for the drivetrain or wants to have a nice old show car.
