Low Retail Value: Mechanically functional condition, minor reconditioning only needed. Normal wear of exterior paint, normal wear of trim and interior, minor reconditioning only needed. A deteriorated restoration or a very poor amateur restoration qualify. Mostly usable "as-is" but is not considered a "parts car."
Average Retail Value: Good overall condition. Older restoration or a well-maintained original vehicle qualify. Completely operable and is a "20-footer." Mechanics, exterior paint, and trim, are presentable and serviceable inside.
High Retail Value: Excellent overall condition. Completely restored or extremely well-maintained original vehicle showing very minimal wear. No reconditioning of the exterior paint, trim, and mechanics needed. Excellent condition interior. Not a "100 point or a "#1" vehicle.
