Question: in the international De Tomaso community is there a specialist around who can independently value the cars? Basically deliver a report stating based on experience and knowledge the indicated market value is xyz.
Reason why is ask is that in my country there are no skilled and experienced valuers around who have experience cars like DeTomaso. Basically they have no clue what to look at and determine value on what they find on the interner and their own interpretation. Situation you then face is that give a value which is lower then for what you can buy another one...
I also collect C2 corvettes and face the same issue with valuing for example an original NXRS spec split window or a big-block car. As such I asked a specialist in the US to draw up and independent report and use that as a guideline to present to valuers over here. Otherwise they value it like just another corvette...
You still have then the 'ego' of the valuer to handle, but if the are a pro they should at least be open for knowledge and experience.
Would appreciate your thoughts!
