Value of a 1952 220 sedan

I found a 1952 220 sedan. Suicide door. Car looks to be in very good original condition. It is complete and rust free. Has been in dry garage storage for about 20 years. Enigine is free but it is not running. What is it worth? I am having a hard time finding prices for this car. Thanks in advance.

I suspect the only way you'll find out what it's worth is to get it appraised. There are so few survivors left, and the value is so condition-dependent, that there's essentially no comparable sales prices to look at.

If you can get it cheap and are willing to make it go, snap it up.

There was a nice one in a Barrett Jackson auction a year or two ago. It sold for less than $9k. All original but in very good condition.

try An Error Has Occurred!, in restorable shape like you describe, they start at 2grand and go north from there. Daily drivers can be found for like 5k-10k. Exceptional cars are of course, worth much more. For instance, this nice one...
