P.A.V.E. Numeric Condition Guide

The Professional Association of Vehicle Evaluatos Inc. (P.A.V.E.) has developed the following Numeric Condition Guide Codes, and is authorized solely for the use of its licensed members.

#1 (+/-) = Excellent
A vehicle that is perfect, or very close to perfect. Vehicle may be original, restored, custom built, or a combination of these. All components and workmanship must be of the highest quality. All components must operate properly. Vehicles in this very limited classification would be “trailered”, and not “driven” when being moved.

#2 (+/-) = Very Good
An extremely presentable, well-operating vehicle, which upon very close inspection shows only the most minimal aging, wear, or damage. Vehicles in this classification would be “ brand new”, “seldom driver”, or “trailered”.

#3 (+/-) = Good
A presentable vehicle showing evidence of less than high-quality workmanship, general wear and/ or use. Still shows a generally attractive body finish, which may reveal minor fading, checking, or other imperfections visible upon close inspection. Vehicle still runs and drives well, but may require minor mechanical refurbishing work.

#4 (+/-) = Fair
An operable vehicle that clearly requires cosmetic and mechanical attention. Body and non-structural undercarriage components may reveal only minimal rust and/ or evidence of prior repair, but overall the vehicle appears to be restorable.
