It varies slightly with the area of the country, but a base 6 cylinder car in average shape books for $6,475.00 according to the CPI pricing guide:

Well kept & maintained 6 cyl. cars go for about $5k around here. Bottom line, it's only worth what someone is willing to pay. I've seen pretty decent V8 coupes that need just a bit of elbow grease for that price range or even less

65-66 6 cylinder automatic coupes without high options like A/C and Sprint packages rarely bring over $5000 in mint or restored condition in the midwest. Average cars can be purchased around here daily for $2000 to $3500. Converts are usually worth triple and fast backs double those amounts.


By the way, welcome to M&M !

See I priced it at about $7500 here in CA, but I was just wondering what everyone else though. Steve's estimate thing was pretty much what I was thinking.

Rust-free Southern California/Arizona cars do tend to fetch good $$$

I was considering either selling my car, or converting it to a V8, but I hear that my car will retail for even less as a V8 than a 6 if/when I decide to sell it.
