Here's how to find out how much your auto is worth.

Things You Will Need

Internet access

Step 1

For the web surfers out there, the easiest place to find classic car blue book value is by visiting kbb.com. You may already know that Kelley is considered the benchmark for determining how much an auto is worth, so check them out.

Step 2

There are plenty of other sites out there that will allow you to find a classic car blue book value at no charge, so check them out. It's wise to keep your eyes open with any sites on the internet. Don't enter you credit card information, and if possible, avoid giving them your email address. Who needs the junk mail? When you are trying to find a classic car blue book value, it doesn't make sense to deal with the other stuff.

Step 3

For those that want to find a classic car blue book value, but don't want to use the internet, it's still very possible. Try calling your local bank. Banks keep a copy of the guides because they use them when determining loans on them. Generally, the lender will only loan out a certain percentage of how much the auto is worth. This is called loan to worth ratio. Because the ratio is required, the banks all tend to have these guides. You can call your bank and ask them to find a classic car blue book value for you.

Step 4

Those that know anyone that works at a vehicle lot may be able to find a classic car blue book value as well. Just like banks, most dealers have these guides available. If you know someone that sells automobiles, ask them to look up the information for you. It won't cost you anything but your time.

Step 5

While you may not find the exact classic car blue book value at an auto show, you will generally be able to find out what the vehicle is worth. Many times the people at these shows are helpful, willing to help out when they can. In general, you'll find people that are knowledgeable in determining the condition of the vehicle. Keep in mind that the condition will impact how much the auto is worth greatly. In addition, they can let you know how much the vehicle may fetch on the open market, which is actually more accurate. A classic car blue book value is great to have, but if you cannot sell it for the price listed, was it worth it?

You can find out how much that old auto is worth without buying any expensive guides to use. Why not give it a shot?
