I have acquired a 1932 Duke Jaguar kit car. Does anyone know how to find the value on such a vehicle? I haven't been able to find anything with NADA or Kelly Blue Book.

Since it's not a production car and there can be such a huge variation in quality of kit car assembly as well as components used it's virtually impossible to assign value sight unseen. Pretty much worth what someone's willing to give you.

Not sure.. but cool car. Did you buy the one that was in sale in Farmington?

My grandfather used to have one almost exactly like this... was a lot of fun!

In general, kit cars are worth less than the sum of their components. So, if its a $3000 kit and it uses a chassis and motor that can be had for 1500 you have a 4500 cap even though the builder might have 500 hours in it.

There is a whole catagory of these on Ebay Motors including the popular 37 Jag:

Thanks everyone, for your input; it's been helpful. I inherited this car. It was originally purchased for 28,000, and an insurance company put a value of 8400. in 2005.
