Default How Much is it Worth Updated

I just updated my "How Much is it Worth" web page. I was able to bring back the graph option by rewriting the code in perl. I also added all of the information from the 2018 MARC and MAFCA magazines. See link below.

WHAT IS IT WORTH??? It depends on what someone would pay for it!!!
Bill W.

I stand by my statement!!!----There's a multitude of variables, when buying or selling a Model A!!
I'm Old & have sold, bought, traded more cars than you can imagine & each has a story of its' OWN!!!!

Bill, that thought is misleading and does not help anyone who is thinking of buying or selling. Respectfully, some standard range is most helpful for newbies making a purchase, or sellers coming close to reasonable numbers. If someone forks over triple or double what a car should have sold for, does that make it worth double or triple? NO

Note that the prices are ASKING prices. I have no way of knowing if they were sold and for how much.

A great effort to gather all that data and THEN to make it useable. Excellent!

We just need to take our own guess as to the difference between asking price and selling price.

I'm going to estimate that selling price, on the average, is 80% of asking.

Yes S/W Fordor, Town Sedan, Cabriolet and Victoria are included. I did not group by every different body type. So S/W Fordor, Town Sedans and Cabriolets will be included in the 1931 numbers along with any straight window 1931 vehicles.


P.S. S/W Town Car Deliveries would be included in the Delivery group. However there were none found.

That must have been a lot of work to compile all of that data. As someone who does not own an A YET, I look at the for sales all of the time. From an un scientific view point I would say his averages for current value seem to be spot on, with the exception of the phaetons and victorias. I suppose the average may be correct on those but I have yet to see any with that low of an asking price.
