I am stuck in a perplexing situation.
Whats my car really worth in a private sale.... yeah I know,,, how long is a peice of string and or Depends on what the buyer is willing to pay...... HHHHmmmmm....??
I have a Jun-Jul ? Build 91 Eb S XR8 Auto.
Bog stock except the exhaust system "white" and auto.
The delema all started 2yrs ago when some #@%*&#@
mechanic stuffed the power steering on me with water and iron filings which i could never prove.
At that stage a camber kit and and front struts were also needed and still are. After the P/S was mucked and all associated parts that go with it ..hoses, rack, etc etc I put it off the road.
I have not been in the $ to get it back on the road until now. I have checked around, and a freind works for a parts rebuilder,
So after spending $1800 inc rego and some very minor rust repairs , panel trim etc etc I COULD... get it back on the road.........The motor is sweet and the body straight, done 172 thou, however the paint is crows foot - front to back but u need to look real close to see it
Thus the delema.. My work provides me a new falcon so no hassles there, BUT, still really in short supply of $$$ . I owe $4000 on the car to finance .. bloody interst rates.
I have looked from ebay to redbook, to classifeid adds and got very wild pricing for simalar Kilometer cars anywhere from $4000 to $12500. !!! ??.
So to the big question?? .... should i spend the dough and sell the nice old girl ( as much as I love it ) and try to make back what I owe and the amount spent on it, to get it back on the road????
Can I get that much for it ? $6000 ?
Or Just let it sit ..pay it off, then back on the road as a nice old classic??
I guees my main concern is will I get the money back plus what i owe on it if I try to sell it???
Any help greatly appreciated
