1.  What is the value of my car?

The Automobile Reference Collection can give approximate values for most cars and light trucks, including many antique vehicles. Here are the two websites we use most often in answering questions of this nature:

NADA Guides

"NADAguides.com is the most comprehensive vehicle information website on the Internet today... One of the most popular features of NADAguides.com is the pricing information we publish for new and used cars, trucks, vans and SUVs, as well as classic, collectible, exotic and special interest vehicles, boats, motorcycles, RVs, personal watercraft, ATVs, snowmobiles and manufactured housing.  We publish more information about more types of vehicles than any other data provider on the market."

Kelly Blue Book

"In the 10 years since kbb.com was launched the Internet has become not only an integral part of everyday life, but has also fueled the biggest growth in Kelley Blue Book's history. Nearly one out of every three people who buy a new or used car in the United States visits the site. According to J.D. Power and Associates' AutoShopper.com studies, more car-buyers use kbb.com than any other three sites combined! The Web site has been named the most visited for eight years in a row."
2.  Where can I find the value of a vehicle from a date in the past?

The Free Library's Automobile Reference Collection has a comprehensive print archive of the NADA Guides, the Automobile Red Book, and the Truck Blue Book which contains information of this nature. Call, email or visit the Automobile Reference Collection at the Parkway Central Library (1901 Vine Street) for more information about gaining access to this archive: 215-686-5404 or erefarc@freelibrary.org.
