Just curious

I wanted to know roughly the value of a mint damn near never driven 1957 plymouth Belvedere would be worth today. The reason i ask is because here in Tulsa theres one thats been buried under our county courthouse sense 1957 in a cement air tight box. They plan to dig it up in 07. I was just curious how much it would be worth.

A 2 door hardtop with the 300 hp engine would be worth about $30k, deduct for 4 doors or 2 door sedan, and increase it for the high performance version.

I saw the video, and I get dibs on the beer

I remember trying to make time capsules...too bad I'd dig them up the next day

No clue on the value though...

It's just more fermented, and from what I know in history, filled with lead and asbestos

I gotta see what that big thing looks like after 50 years of just sitting. you think the engine is seized up? I figured just sitting wouldnt hurt it.

I'm thinking an engine rebuild would be needed...hell, even after 3-4 months of not being used, my gas powered R/C car needs an engine rebuild...not sure if it would be the same for an actual car though...

Might at least need a push start

Can only imagine a 100% original car, with 50 year old gas and everything.

Watch them dig it up and it either be gone or in really bad shape somehow (or the concrete enclosure collasped)
