I need to figure out what to do with this car.

Perhaps you can get better information. This is where I went.

Classic Car Values – NADA Classics Pricing Information – Car appraisal Book Values

Good luck.

WOW! That was a boat and a half. I was a youngster when it came out. I've never seen it in the bucket seat, 4 on the floor configuration. Value on something like that would be hard to come up with. If were in great shape and ran good, here'* a page with comparable models

Search results for Pontiac Bonneville 1959-1969 in Cars & Trucks

Kelly drops value to salvage($500 under '86). Then you get into a unchartable territory of what ever a buyer will pay. Something like that with a frame off restoration and looking showroom could bring a price as high as $50k. But with alot of experience in and around Custom work, I can tell you that it can cost nearly that to bring a car that old to show condition again.

LOL, any car would love the Tri-Power. Unless you can get the car to a presentable "good" condition without alot of money/time, I would consider the drive train it'* real value. But there can be found people who will pay good for a nice project. Hard to say.

A lot of Station wagons were powered well. I used up many a Chevy wagon 400 back in the day.
