a question of value...

As a native of northern Wisconsin, I was traveling a country road in the middle of nowhere observing the fall colors when I spotted an old tractor in a partially grown-in field, the tractor was junk, but once in the field, I saw ans old car. Not too uncommon around here, but the aluminum Mercades-Benz badge and hood ornament on the front of the car struck me. The windows, and interior are pretty ruined, except for the guages, and there is a large, purposful looking hole in the roof, but all the mechanical portions are there and in decient shape. It looks to me like a 1947- 1952(?) four seater with a straight six w/ overhead cam and cast aluminum valve cover. There is a spare tire on the trunk lid. I believe this thing could be a running, rolling chassis with new seals, a cleaning and such. What would the genral value be of this vehicle? What aspects on it should I look for to determine its history and type? Who would buy it? Any information reguarding this would be well taken and appreciated, THANK YOU!!!

If you can provide the VIN or perhaps some pics, we would have a much better idea of what you're dealing with.
