Where can I get my car appraised?

Good morning all - I've had a 1912 Clement Bayard for the last ten years or so - Have insurance with Hagerty. Problem is - I have no idea as to the value of the car. :confused: The car is in 'perfect' condition completely restored . . right down to the original owners manual. It's the only CB I know if in the country so, nothing to compare it to. Thanks for any recomendations - Don / Orlando

That is a problem. I had to state an "Agreed Value" for my 1915 Buick as there also was nothing to compare it to. This is a problem with early brass era autos of limited examples. If none have gone over the "auction block", there is nothing to compare it to. I was even told by an apraiser that he could not apraise it. You will need to come up with a value that you, and the insurance company agree upon, and hope you never need to collect. Dandy Dave!

We have the same question going here. A 1939 Diamond T Pak-age-car? A 1924 Yellow Cab Truck? Everyone goes huh? The best the appraiser can come up with is a price we can ALL live with. I guess that means we set the starting point and go from there. The truth is a value is never real until it has sold with money in hand.
