I-VAN Appraiser

Dick Barrett became an I-VAN Certified Appraiser in September 2006 upon completion of the I-VAN Appraisal Training School. A graduate of Clarkson College with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Dick has been a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for over 30 years, with a focus on automobiles. Dick has also been involved with antique cars for over 30 years and is currently a collector of Ford Model “A”s. His interests and experiences with antique, special interest, racing, and performance cars have given him a broad knowledge base to apply to his appraisals.

Not only has Dick owned and maintained a wide variety of vehicles, but he is also an Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) National Senior Master Judge as well as an experienced National Judge for the Model A Ford Club of America (MAFCA). For a little extra spice he has also drag-raced a 1966 Mustang and participated in Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) autocrosses. But this didn’t keep him from being a NASCAR Modified Stock Car Crew Member or from winning several local Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) Rallies.

Dick has been very busy in the hobby, having also held office in several local car clubs. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Genesee Valley Antique Car Club (AACA) and is the past Director of the Lakeshore Model A Ford Club.

When Dick wasn’t playing with cars he was working on them. His employment history includes work as a mechanic and in a body shop, where he also did repair estimates. From 2000 to 2005 Dick was General Manager for a company that made automotive coating thickness equipment.

The International Vehicle Appraisers Network (I-VAN) considers ourselves very fortunate to have such a talented and experienced hobbyist, like Dick Barrett, doing appraisals for I-VAN in Central or Western New York State, covering Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Oswego, etc.

As an I-VAN Certified Appraiser, Dick Barrett is prepared to appraise any type of vehicle from early antique cars to vehicles of the '50’s to Mustangs to muscle cars to street rods and modifieds. He has provided his expert services for many purposes including establishing insurance coverage values, settling insurance claims, setting bankruptcy values, and pre-purchase appraisals/evaluations.
