I have a complete series 800 viking grandfather clock kit. It’s complete and still in the boxes just didn’t have time for it. It was given to me years ago. I was looking around for pricing and can’t seem to find anything on it. Has anyone had experience with them to be able to help give a ballpark asking price if i sell it? Looks to be walnut on the main pieces.

You might be able to start by looking at klockit.com or emperorclock.com. Both sell grandfather clock kits. Prices seem to start around $1200 for just the wood parts or $2200 for a complete kit including the movement. There may also be some variation depending on the quality of the movement. Some movements alone are over $2000.

You would need to discount the price slightly because it is technically used and the buyer has little recourse if parts are missing. Somewhere between 25% to 50% discount feels right.
