Need Info

Hello Everyone,

Can anyone tell me what year this car is?
Can you tell me what it might be worth?

The interior is fair at best. I don't know if the car runs or not, I'm guessing not.
I would like to present the owner with an offer but I don't know what this car might even be worth.

Can you help by just looking at the photos?
Thanks in advance.

Looks like a late 1957.
Non curved rocker panel and a down-shine license plate light.
I'm reserving the right to change that guess with more info regarding
a prior restoration with the wrong year parts having been installed.

No clue what it's worth though, depends on rust, clipped panels, non orig. powerplants, availability of bumpers, etc.
Good luck!

late 59. The front turn signals with twist on lens was introduced in Feb 1959. But the shine down was only offered for the T1 and earlier (with a 5 digit vin) so you have a mixed bag. Dash and or door strikers would give a better idea (T1 high striker, ash tray in dash vs T2 low striker and ash tray under dash)

The tail lights and yellow front turn signal indicate it as a Euro model, but it has the holes for US overrider bars (if US model it would have a front high bow)

wipers parked on the wrong side of the car. Depending on rust underneath 40-50k, even as a non runner. Rare find, only made a few like this.
