55 bel air

i was jus wondering how much an immaculate 1955 chevy bel air would bring in...
it has a 265, with a powerglide. it has no rust, and was completely restored to original. it is an original california car, and it is gypsy red and shoreline beige. it is also a convertible. I was thinkin it wuld bring in about 40-60 grand, but some have told me that u wuld get up to 70 grand in places like arizona, where the car can be driven year-round. It also has never been out in rain. anybody else think differently?

i dunno if it would bring in that much, but it wouldnt be cheap. depending on miles on the engine and overall condition (assuming it is good) it would be a range of about $15k - $35k. unless it is some sort of rare options it wouldnt even get any where near $70k. the demand for the bel airs just isnt that high.

You can build a shoebox from the ground up nowadays, saw it on powerblock tv. Did the whole body in glass, lightened the doors, had the engine from Hell. A MINT 2 door post 55 should bring 30, but not much more, unless the guy has more money that sense. JMHO
