How much to ask?
I'm going to list my '94 locally in the next couple days and I am lost on what to start at for an asking price. I'm not in a big hurry to sell it, but I don't want to sit on it for more than a month and a half. My plan is to start a little high, and knock a bit off the price every week or so until it sells, but I don't know what "a little high" is, and I'd like to know where reasonable and low are too, just so I know when I get there. I'm looking for your suggestions.
-It's a red '94 with about 175k miles. Turbo since about 150k. Leather, heated driver's seat. Top was replaced 5 years ago, black, in very good condition.
-Puts down 197whp on a dyno dynamics. Professionally tuned. (I tuned it myself, but had the dyno guy tweak the spark table, and he looked over the rest and told me it was the best home tune he'd ever seen. Thanks for the help on that one guys!)
-Turbo is a 14b, running about 13psi, intercooler from a Starion.
-Megasquirt 1, standalone, 460cc injectors
-A/C, cruise, power steering, works great
-Log manifold and exhaust are custom, exhaust is stainless, 2.5" from the turbo back, with a cheap cat, and a magnaflow.
-The upsides to the car are that it's turbo'd (obviously), it runs well, starts well (except when it's really cold, it takes two tries. Still always starts though), doesn't smoke, and generally doesn't have many problems. The paint is good (not perfect, but it's not a new car), the interior is good aside from the regular wear on leather seats.
-The downsides are that I never properly shrouded the rad/intercooler so it overheats on the highway above about 85mph, but only when the temperature is above about 85. Nothing too serious, and probably easily fixed. The suspension was never addressed, so it's got AGX shocks with stock springs, and an NB front sway bar, with the stock rear sway bar. I am keeping the 6ULs, so it's got stock daisies that I painted pretty nicely a bunch of years ago, running REALLY cheap all season tires. There is a small patch of pre-rust paint bubble just in front of the driver's rear wheel, and the car was driven in 5 Maine winters, so the underside isn't shiny and clean, but it's not too awful either.
What else do you want to know, and what should I start with for an asking price?
