What's a 1930 Chrysler Model 77 Coupe worth?

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine is asking me to sell a 1930 Chrysler Model 77 coupe and I'm having a difficult time establishing a fair price. Not some flowery appraisal number, but an actual price someone would pay for the car. Thanks, Lynn

Need photos and good description to be able to guess. If you need someone to post the photos for you or give you an idea, send me the photos and I would be glad to help. John

It's a really nice restoration, done maybe twenty-five years ago. Car runs pretty good, has a bit of a front-end wobble at about 40 MPH, but it's a good, solid car. Photos to follow

WOW! It's a nice one folks!! I figure $18,000.00 to $20,000.00. I could be way off, but it sure is beautiful. Maybe someone else can guess a worth.

I suspect that $18-20,000 may be close to correct, knowing that there's probably three times that amount in its restoration. Great taste in picking colors and choosing black tires. I'd love to have it, too.

+1

I would hope it would bring at least 20k.

It's normally great value buying a car already restored, versus paying for the restoration yourself.... especially for mass production cars.

We still own this Chrysler as we decide not to sell it. It has a dark history, it was last upholstered by the hillside stranger in his shop in Glendale ca. Right before he was caught. We now have it stored in Kalispell Montana and are thinking of selling it. At one time MR Leno was interested in buying  it but we were not ready to sell yet. We are getting it cleaned up to sell and may approach MR Leno to see if he is still interested and see if he will make us an offer.

Wasn't the "Hillside Strangler" actually two people working together?

Kenneth Bianchi claimed most of

the Hillside Strangler murders were committed at Angelo Buono’s Upolstery Shop at 703 East Colorado Street in 

Glendale, California.

 

No offense - but I can’t see anyone wanting to own that car except

perhaps a Death Museum.

I doubt that its haunted.

An interesting story that probably doesn't change any value.

I agree with Jack, it’s a great looking car that I think is worth every penny of 20k plus some, but the extra storyline isn’t worth another nickel IMO.

 

As for spooky, really? This isn’t a B rated horror flick, it’s a car folks... and a pretty good looking one too.

The trunk handle is on the top, that should make it a Rumble seat coupe?

That plus the golf club door makes me think you are correct there...

O.P., Lynn Park, probably not - last here 8 years ago. The owner himself, Blackie 1, almost certainly.   -    CC
