I am by no means an expert on this subject, but I know people who have done this and have paid in the $800-$1000 price range. Your best bet on finding someone is probably thru "Hemmings". They can be contacted on www.hemmings.com under the services section.
Good Luck!!!!

It's a long shot, but you might find there's a container line (or any other kind of line that can handle cars) running ships from LA to NY. If there is, and you can book a slot, that will almost certainly be your cheapest option. I can get a car from the Philippines to the UK for $1,000.

Yes, from San Francisco to my house in Maine cost me $1095, plus a $50 'fuel surcharge' they snuck on my card a month later. I used American Auto Transport.

i had my 83 gm transported from pittsburg to tucson. it cost $950. i used "AAA anywhere, any time". i wouldnt recomend them to my worst enemy though. they couldnt even tell me where my car was or when it would get to me even though they said 7-10 days after pick up(it took them 3 wks from when they picked it up). one of the guys on another board recomended reliable transport(after mine was transported).

I looked into this about a year and a half ago. If you want to ship it covered (which you do) by a reliable company, you are easily looking at $1500 to $2500 depending on the carrier. Uncovered ran about $750, but I wouldn't advise it.

There was a very, very nice '70 Mach I in upstate NY that I was going to buy. I ended up not buying it because of the shipping cost. It was a great car though! Luckily I found another one right here in Cali about six months later. I had it shipped from San Francisco to Orange County for $200.

I used DAS last year to ship a 68 coupe from Los Angeles, CA to Linden, NJ. It was a drivable car so the guy was nice enough to drop it of at the terminal and I picked it up at the terminal in Linden. I cost $800 on an open carrier and I think $1050 enclosed. The car needed a paint job so I went the open route to save $250. You can get a quote on their web site with different options.
