Yes I sold the car for too little in my opinion, $8900.00. I just stopped at a "Classic" car dealership here in Seattle area, and looked at a '63 Falcon, not even a Sprint, 18K! for a 6-cyl Falcon!

thanks for informaiton. I have two, a '55 Century and a '47 Roadmaster. They both are complete, yet I am getting offers under $1000. Is that the game for these guys? Low ball until score? Cheers,Randy

Well at 60 I'm finally getting tired of my first love. I am watching the antique car hobby turn into big business, forcing out the working man, and into the hands of the highest bidder. Just sold a 49 Super as well. First time I can remember being without an old car since my days as a kid at my old man's garage in CT. Best of luck to you and your sales! regards, Dan

Put it on ebay, well presented and let the market decide. CL and similar sites are not a good gauge of value.

Non running projects, even if in decent shape are not finding sales.

As for the 55 Century 4 door above, I think $9000 is a decent price. SEEING a 63 Falcon for sale for $16K or whatever, does not mean that car will EVER sell for that price. Apples and oranges.....
