Sorry to hear this, Dustin.

1. Edmunds goes only as far as 1987.

2. Kelly Blue Book trade in value:
Good condition - $1450 
Excellent condition - $1675

I assumed that your car had PW, PL, SR, Cruise and I used my own ZIP
Also keep in mind that the trade-in value represents the wholesale
price. For the insurance reimbursement purposes you need the residual
value of your car, which will be somewhat higher.

3. Nada page does not provide the on-line service. They offer to buy
their book instead.
