You will get 13k easy and potential 15k for that car. What you have going for you is the attractive items like exhaust, wheels, body kit, springs.


However - the dog also comes with the fleas. You will attract buyers with what you have but also repel many because it has a boy racer vibe and the mods you put on tend to mean the car has been beat on.

If the mods were new brakes, new cooling, new tires, new battery or alternator, new belts and pullies, new plugs and motor mounts that would send a different message. If you all also had the receipts saying the transmission had been serviced and cooling lines flushed, brakes flushed, and new oil would help. That would signify a different message and that mechanical reliability is the priority.

Hope this helps and makes sense but the car will sell pretty easily IMO. It’s all about finding the right buyer. Many young kids want the car the exact way you have it, and they probably would be willing to pay a premium for it!

good luck.

Thank you sir. I was an ase certified technician trained by Subaru and worked for a Honda dealership. Every fluid has been replaced. The only track time its seen is laps at Grand Sport Speedway in Houston. I was going for a reliable street, strip, show build with empasis on quality parts while staying reliable. Again thank you for the great reply.

No problem! Good luck! Ask more then you think you can get. You can always lower it if there aren’t any takers! I’d start around 15k I think!
