I’ve seen them as “cheap” as $28k around me, but that was barely running and with a lot of work on both the interior and exterior needed. I’ve also seen some that are running and need minimal work selling for $65-90k. Like Kingpin said, not only are these cars 60+ years old but they were rare back in 1959 so they’re becoming even harder to find now. I’ve also heard that some people that are selling these cars won’t sell to someone who wants to turn it into an Ecto, they want to keep their history as ambulance/hearses. Take that with a grain of salt though, just things I’ve heard over the years. Usually if someone wants to sell something and someone has cash in hand, their convictions become a bit more flexible haha
Also I try to keep an eye out for ecto specific parts and some of them like the propello ray and federal siren (if you want to go with movie accurate models) I’ve seen going for $1k+ each. I’m not saying any of this to dissuade you, just sharing what I’ve seen!
Someone blows their nose and you want to keep it?
