A) must be the real deal... not fakes or frauds

B) Colors (Black) adds a lot... must be factory original body/trim tag

C) Original documentation, history, and Bloomington/NCRS show awards adds a lot

D) Original rare options adds a lot (set of Kelsey bolt-on wheels & red stripe tires sold on eBay in '06 for $33K)

E) Original, unrestored in excellent condition adds a lot.

F) Caveat Emptor (Buyer Beware). We are adrift in a sea of sharks disguised as mermaids.

G) When it is time to sell... be a smart seller. High-profile events like the Barrett-Jackson and Mecum Muscle Car auctions will get you more money for your car than newspaper and trade publication advertisements. Plan ahead if you’re considering selling your baby: seek good lot numbers (pay a premium if you must) and baby-sit your car during the event to answer questions and show pride in your car – it is a reflection of you, and people simply pay more if they like the seller.

A-E Equals an overall package and desirables.

Much of information is based on writer's personal knowledge and prices achieved at high profile public auctions.
