mileage

Is 81K to many miles on a '97 cobra. Car still looks great,in the pix, but
have not seen it in person yet. It's triple black and they are asking $13.5
for it. What do you think?
Thanks,
excobraboy for not too much longer :-)

Car is at least 7 physical years old.

That's 11,500 miles a year at the most, right?

If it was an Escort, I'd stay away from it... because that would mean it
was prolly used to drive to the store and back. But in a Cobra, that's
different.

Means it was driven maybe once, twice a week.. I would think. Like to the
strip and back?

Just kidding.

Re: mileage


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
cool acting'.
