A considerable amount of factors play into a vehicle's value, well beyond it's condition. Correctly classifying a vehicle's condition rating is paramount.
Well restored, or a combination of superior restoration and excellent original. Also, an extremely well maintained original showing very minimal wear. Except for the very closest inspection a No. 2 vehicle may appear as a No. 1. May be driven 800-1000 miles per year to show or on tours or simply for pleasure.
Completely operable original or “older restoration” showing wear. Also, a good amateur restoration, all presentable and serviceable inside and out. Plus, combinations of well done
restoration and good original operable components; or a partially restored vehicle with all excellent quality original and/or valuable NOS parts required to complete it.
