How much would this car be worth now?

KANKAKEE, Ill., April 4 (UPI) -- A 1958 Buick has been unearthed almost 40 years after three young men walled it up under an Illinois house as a practical joke, observers said.

The Buick Special was abandoned in Kankakee, Ill., in 1971 when it broke down and its owner couldn't afford the repair costs, The Chicago Tribune reported Sunday.

Probably nothing in its current state.

Hope it's in better condition than the Plymouth from Oklahoma.

A 58 Buick in the rust belt would be at best, a little crusty in 1971.(before it was entombed) The one picture I've seen of it does make it seem solid, but the front bumper is sitting on an angle. That ain't good. A two door hardtop might be worth the trouble to restore. Any other body style? Depends how well the car survived a damp basement.
