The valuation of classic cars is generally more subjective than the general used car market. To calculate value, the vehicle’s age, rarity, condition and market desirability are considered. Hagerty.com provides a range of values for a given vehicle based on condition. Condition 1 represents an immaculate, competition-worthy vehicle, while Condition 4 applies to a day-to-day vehicle in fair shape. As of 2015, Hagerty.com values a 1954 Ford Crestline hardtop convertible at $8,600 for Condition 4 and up to $30,600 for Condition 1.
