    Hello odog,

    You may want to consult a local shop or mechanic who has some direct experience with working on classic cars. They would have the best knowledge for you in regards to where you would want to start to get your 49 running. They should be able to help you with the process of getting the gas tank drained and/or installing your new gas tank as well as cleaning your fuel lines. And if there is any other items that may need to be addressed to get your 49 running.

    We do not have a value guide for you or a way to determine the value. Value will be dependent on condition, area or region, and demand of your specific car. You might try contacting a Insurance Companies that specialize in insuring classic cars, they might have value references for you or NADA does have classic car values.

    You are more than welcome to call us to discuss your specifics directly as well.

    Thank you,
    Michelle

    i just picked up a 49 chevy coupe,all original,from original buyer,with original sales invoice etc,,,parked since 1965 in a garage.They said it was running when parked.My question is what to do,bought a new gas tank etc but havent installed it, original tank has gas in it,would like to see if it does run which i believe the owners that it did or just sell it without even messing with a true survivor original car.Where does the value of a car like this go if i start messing with it?
