1954 original owner, we may have found the oldest GL4x4 member.

I'd like to see some pics too.

Sell it to 1TonCaddy so he can turn it into a real ride.

Spend 100 bucks and have it appraised. There are classic specialty appraisers.

Hagerty Insurance (in Traverse) is one of the biggest insurers of classic cars and boats in the world, and they have a valuation tool.

IIRC it is pretty uncommon in decent shape. Google search shows restored ones sold for around 20k at auction. In reality probably 10-15k

If this car was a 1955-1958 it would be worth more. These cars are not very desirable. There fore don't bring the big cash. Not having pics I can't give you a good value. But lets say it has not rot and is a driver. Your looking at the 6-10,000 dollar range depending on condition. I have a few freinds that collect Olds, send me some pics and info via pm and I'll pass along the info.
