What's a 1930 Chrysler Model 77 Coupe worth?

Recommended Posts

I see no corrolation that would dissuade me from buying that car, there by happenstance only.  Years ago a friend bought a parts car, 39 Chevy from an estate of a well known crime victim here in CT in the late 70s.  The car was stored at the scene of the murders.  He got it home, cleaned it up, got it running, took some parts for his restoration car and drove it for a couple years.  It was not haunted...

Not sure about Lynn Park, he is also know as MR Corba as he has a very large corba collection.

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'd ask for $25K, but you can easily get $20K for this

It is a very early 30.  I love the pennant louvres. I love the black tires.  The caps look wrong, though.  Looks like Imperial caps.  I'm confused by the left rear sid - don't see the light.

It is a 2/4 Royal Coupe.  I'd think 25-30K?

I'd love to see some pictures of both sides of the engine, instrument panel and the floor mat/compartment.

The light brackets for the taillights come off of the rear bumper bracket, not the rear fenders. That is why they are tough to see in the photos.

19-20 is fair, but also one of those cars that stands a chance of going higher as just so few and hard to find one that is nice matched to 6 wires/sidemounts, rumble seat, nice trunk, and being a 3 window.  I might be tempted to start at 27K.  If it is an AACA winning car, I would start quite a bit higher - say 45K.   And, if a Grand National car, then perhaps even more.

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

 

This is all we know about the mechanical condition as of 8 years ago. Once we start speculating about valuation based on assumptions extrapolated from cars which are high level national show cars........................      Perhaps it is time to have more relevant info, and another dozen(s) pictures. From time to time, I ask seekers of help here, to help us help them. Blackie1, in order to help you get the quackers lined up in a row for your approach to Mr. Leno, give us more pertinent information. A 35 year old restoration ;  you know. I am sure each and every one of us will be interested to see how you get on. Please keep us informed. One must assume the worst regarding unknown important mechanical factors. Let's see : do we know where you and the car are ? You could be a neighbor, and a well qualified AACA member might be able to help answer the??????????????s you will have to address eventually in any case.

 

You have given us far more important info than some curious truthseekers offer up. I literally read a solicitation, verbatim as follows :  " My friend has a 1929 Cadillac. What is it worth ?"  I thought about responding "Probably somewhere between $6000 and $150,000 depending on body style and condition. Could vary somewhat. Good luck with the sale.  -  Cadillac Carl ".     But I moved on.

 

Again, you have stimulated interest here. Thank you for introducing us to your great looking car. As I said, please keep us involved.

          Your forum friend,         -    Cadillac Carl 

 

P.S.  Just re-read. Do see that the car is in Kalispell,  Montana. Sorry.    -    CC

If it was an early 30 the cowl lights would be near the roof. Also, The model 70 did not have chrome headlight buckets. Agree that the hood is off an early 30.
