  1. An older gentleman that I helped through the years passed away, and I acquired a 1947 Ford Business Coupe that had been sitting in his barn for over 40 years. It was a dream restoration project that he never got around to finishing. I believe it to be all matching numbers, frame, transmission, engine. It has a flathead V8. It's not perfect, by no means, but it's is not terribly bad and I am pretty sure this car is as it came off the assembly line, no modifications, so forth. What I would like to know is what kind of premium/value the matching numbers w/ original V8 engine might REALISTICALLY command. Somebody once told me "it's worth, what you want to ask for it," but it's really worth only what someone else is willing to pay for it. I'm not really concerned about value estimates on condition, because I've checked out the prices on a few 1940s Fords that are nice (9" inch rear ends, stroker engines, etc.). I'm wondering how much the fact that the numbers all match alone adds to the value of the car. Any insight would be helpful. I am trying to make a reasonable decision on what the best route to take this car would be. Thank you.
