Value on these Colt depends mostly on mechanical condition as they are difficult to repair. As I see it this one would be be $125 to $225 depending on bore, lockup, timing, etc.

ANY .38 special is worth between $150 to $250...and there are barrels out there ,so it could be "put back".............but does one want to put too much money into a 'project gun' that when you finish willl not be worth that much more...it is what it is, a shooter , and a classic,and looking at the picture ,it appears already has the ejector rod 'bent' which happened all too often with those early guns and NO barrel shroud............
