1993 Fairmont Ghia Sportsman (i am not sure if it is eb or ed and i have no idea what the sportsman means). Its done of 300ks, Automatic, Power Steering, its on gas, abs, climate control, electric windows, trip computer, central locking and alloys.
They are asking $3900, I don't want to pay more then 3500 for it.
Am i asking to much or too little at $3500
300,000kms!! I'd want to know what's been fixed on it in that time and whats been services.
If they don't have recipts for any work done then offer them $3000. If it's been very well looked after than it would be worth around $5000 or more.
Breathe! It's only the internet....
On the later models, the sportsman's were limited edition cars that usually got some better gear (like some stuff from the LTD). e.g. in the AU's, the fairlane ghia sportmans got LTD spec leather, different rims and a few other bits I can't remember.
Thats the kind of thing to look out for....
if its on gas and hasnt been ran on fuel for a time then you may find a lot of gaskets have dried and cracked. this happened to a friends XF. put $20 in of petrol and it had literally all gone in 5 minutes of running it. sportsmans are limited in each series. i think from memory there are only 200 or so made in each series so you can expect to pay a little more. i didnt actually think that the sportsmans were released in the fairmont range but i could be wrong about this, usually they are fairlanes.
as for the price that they want you also have to consider the state of the body and interior not just the drive line. if it all looks smick then go for it. drive it first and try and check for accident repairs and things like that. im quiet sure if you pull $3500 out in cash and say ill give you this, in cash, right now then theyd be stupid to knock it back. maybe even try $3000 see how that goes and if thats not accepted then make your next offer your last and clearly state that this is it....take it or leave it...they will take it!
