Need some help.

I recently inherited a 1926 Durant Star R model with the Continental 14L six cylinder engine from Ron Hast who some you remember from posts some time ago. What I need is information on how to evaluate the worth of this car. It is a restored (some years ago) and is in running condition. Very clean with just some minor paint chipping. Ron used to take it to the market and some people know how to park. It is garaged, dry and rust free.
Any information on how to find someone or some where that can help me evaluate this would be appreciated.

Re: Need some help.

Not much help to on it's value, but can you please pass along the details to me on this car for the Durant Registry as I currently have nothing on it. Need year, make, model, ID plate info (serial# and prefix letter) engine plate details (14L- ???? etc.) and any other details you can send. All I can add is that there are about 50+ 1926 Durant R's on the registry of various models if this helps. Thanks Steve

Very nice car. Was driven weekly until just recently. Always garaged. Rust and rot free. Full frame off restoration done by previous owner Ron Baudertcher (sp) of Ohio. We purchased the car in Nov of 2005.

Thanks Steve, I did find it by using the engine # you provided, your serial # from the I.D. plate should say L-4542, Is this the same car that was for sale by Cars of Dawydiak of San Fransisco ????

Yes that is the car. I pulled it out of there after almost two years with no leads. Now have it back at home.

Good to know, for a moment I thought we had 2 cars with the same serial # and motor #, which hasn't happened so far. Thanks Steve
