I have found a car that meets my criteria, and I think the guy will let it go cheap. He said to make an offer. I dont want to offer too much, but dont want to offend either with a lowball. He has no prior history on the car, he owns a towing company and this car is now in his posession and he's going to sell it. Says it starts up and runs. I assume he does not have the title but I havent asked him that yet. Original paint that's badly faded, missing some trim, LF fender is smashed in a bit, stereo missing, and interior cloth is pretty worn. But overall from the pics he sent me it looks like something I could fix up, paint, new carpet and seat covers, and have a really clean car.
But shes kinda rough right now.....
Soooo, judging on that I bought an identical car in much better shape 4 years ago (well LX not LXi but I dont think that made a huge difference in value) for 750, Im thinking 500 bucks is fair, dont know if he'll go for it though. Im assuming he'll want 750 for it or so. Seeing as someone had a for sale sign in the window for 900 (setting in the floorboard now).
What do you think?
