What shape is it in? Do you have a link to it with some pictures?

As you probably already know, Kelly Blue Book doesn't go back further than like 1982, although Nada does.

If you give me all the data I need I'll look up the value.

Hold on a second. I was looking over your post to see if it was a coupe, formula, trans am or esprit and you say it's a Chevy Capri?

Is it a Chevy Caprice a Mercury Capri or is it a Pontiac firebird?

This is for the 2 door coupe:

If it has air conditioning add 10%.

If it has a 4 speed transmission add 10%.

Low retail, which means this vehicle would be in mechanically functional condition, needing only minor reconditioning, it should be worth $4,200.

Average retail, which means this vehicle would be in good condition overall. It could be an older restoration or a well-maintained original vehicle, it should be worth $7,500.

High retail, which means This vehicle would be in excellent condition overall. It could be a completely restored or an extremely well-maintained original vehicle showing very minimal wear, it should be worth $11,000.
