Default Miata value

Not sure if this post should go in this section. Been a few years since I've had a Miata and saw one come up around me. Just not sure what a fair price would be.
I haven't seen the car in person, so here's a basic run down on it.
1990 with Greddy turbo kit, looks to be still just the old basic kit with an intercooler add on. (Engine bay dirty though). Says recent timing belt, radiator, and tune up.
Flyin miata stage 2 suspension, but has 8 way adjustable kyb's not tokico. So not sure if it's an older version.
Hard top.
6ul 15x8 with nitto nt1's
Paint is faded, and clear peeling
Interior looks like 25 year old interior.
Just wondering what you guys think a fair price would be based on what I wrote. In person I'm sure there's some issues not listed.

Thanks

$2000-2500 at the most. Then again the hardtop and 6UL are the most valuable things on it.

That's kind of what I was afraid of. Listed a decent amount higher.

Damn Lars, mistakes must be dirt cheap in your area.
​That would be listed for 4 at a minimum around here.
Where are you located?

I mean people list stupid **** like that for crazy prices here. I just don't buy it. Nothing on that car besides the HT or 6UL have any value to me. If it had a MS and a 1.8 rear end, value would def go up, but with what we know, its a POS.

$2000-2500 is probably pretty accurate as far as true market value. He's probably hoping that he can get a dumb kid with daddy money to pony up the $5k or whatever he's asking for #cultureandstatus.

Yeah it's hard to get an accurate description. With one sentence replies, maybe I could at least take a look at it. Who knows maybe I could cut him in half.

I was able to get some better pics of it. I could see some cracking filler on it, so I'll be passing on it.

The question was "how much is the car worth" not "how much is the car worth to you."

Sounds like passing was a good choice though if the body is that rough. People really have gotten silly with pricing.
