When my '69 MkIII was hit a few years ago, the insurance company (State
Farm) used values from EBay for the past 12 months exclusively. They
started off with an offer extremely low, under $200 from what I recall.
After negotiations, it ended up being about $2k. What convinced them was
the parts that I had in my garage, maintenance records, etc. That showed
them that it wasn't just an 'old car', but was a rolling rebuild.
