29. what year is the vehicle?
say it is a 2001, wholesale value is around between $7,000 to $10,000 (this is a rough estimate).

if you got between $6,500 to $8,000, you'd still come out good.

hard to say though, depends on your insurer and whether they will give you retail value for the vehicle or enough to purchase a used one on the secondary market.
