Sounds high. I bought my Rio Red 97 last year for 15K Cana-jun dollars,
which is about 11.5-12k Greenbacks. Mine had 100K-ish kilometers on the
clock, which is about 60k-ish miles.
Car overall is a B+. Interior + drivetrain are A to A+. Exterior grades
low as it has alot of paint chips on hood, so paint is C+ to a B-.
Bought it from original owner (older professional guy), full
documentation, maintenance, etc.
So really I would say that 13.5 for a pristine, documented Cobra at the
mileage you are talking about would be fair. If its multiple owners,
been repainted, no service history, etc, deduct from there.
I dont mean to be authoritative, just how I would price a car I was
buying. For my car, I felt that the 15K CDN dollars was fair.
However, I didnt have much choice in the matter. :) When I went to look
at the car, I was hooked as soon as the guys garage door opened and I
saw the cobra back bumper. My wife knew too, 'cause I got all quiet and
