1936 Chrysler Airstream Info Please

Recommended Posts

My father leaves us a fully restored 1936 Chrysler Airstream and we will be selling it but have no idea how much to ask. Can anyone lead us on how to get it evaluated?

RRR,

I would contact someone at the Walter P. Chrysler Club (WPC), as they have the most knowledge and interest in Airstreams of that era. If there's an AACA Chapter in your area, let them know the car is for sale, as they have an interest in older cars. Try the VMCCA, too.

Also, you could use comparables from auctions or ebay. A 1935 DeSoto Airstream (#200138245640) just ended at $8,300 (Reserve not met) that was appraised from $15-$20K. If all else fails, get a qualified antique automotive appraiser to provide a value for a fee. Try the International Vehichle Appraisers Network (IVAN).

Sadly, as the folks like your father pass away that remember (and collect) the cars of their youth, there are fewer younger collectors with similar interests. That doesn't mean you won't find a new steward for the Chrysler.
