I have a 1954 BN-1 that I have had in storage for 40 years...I am curious about the value.
Last driven in 1966...no body rust at all...front cross-member is rusted thru on the bottom. Spare engine and transmission/overdrive. 4 milk crates of spare parts.
Windshield is broken...but all hardware intact. Engine soaking in penetrating oil...but appears to be seized.
New top and tonneau. Needs paint, interior, hydraulics and engine overhaul (only 35k miles...but frozen up).
General cost for paint...interior...brakes and some machine work?
I have an offer of $14k...thoughts?

I’d guess that number is low if there’s no body rust. 100s usually have pretty good value. The key is going to be how much rust in the chassis. If it’s only the crossmember then no big deal but there’s likely more.
