Blue Book Value?

Just got my 1986 Camry dinged on the driver's side front quarter panel by the neighbor. Decent size dents and knocked out of alignment. Figure they will probably total it. Any idea where I can find a value for it? Just want to make sure I'm not getting cheated. The Kelley Blue Book site only goes back to 1988. Thanks.

You keep full coverage on an '86? You're probably right about totaling it, and I think Fred is pretty close, although if it's in exceptionally great shape, you can haggle with them for more. I just checked KBB, and they also only go back to 1988. I would say for a rough estimate, take the difference in value between a 1988 and a 1990 Camry. Whatever the difference is, subtract that amount from the value of the 1988. I recon that will get you somewhat close.
