I have adopted the rating system used by "Old Cars Weekly" and it is used as guidelines for a comparison in vehicle ending sale prices.  It will also be a bit of a judgment call by me as I have not seen any of these vehicles in person.


#1) EXCELLENT: Restored to current professional standards of quality in every area; or original with all components operating and appearing as new.

#2) FINE: Well-restored or combination of superior restoration and excellent original; or extremely well maintained original showing very minimal wear.

#3) VERY GOOD: Completely operable original or older restoration showing wear; or amateur restoration; all presentable and serviceable inside and out.  Also combination of well-done restoration and good operable components; or partly restored car with all parts to complete and / or valuable NOS parts.

#4) GOOD: A driveable vehicle needing no or only minor work to be functional; or a deteriorated restoration; or a very poor amateur restoration.  All components may need restoration to be EXCELLENT, but mostly useable "as is."

#5) RESTORABLE: Needs complete restoration of body, chassis, interior.  Not driveable, but is not weathered, wrecked or stripped to the point of being useful only for parts salvage.

#6) SALVAGE: Not driveable, and is weathered, wrecked or stripped to the point of being useful only for parts salvage.
