I sold my 89, 5.0, LX, 5 speed, hatchback with 120K miles on it for $2,500.
It was all original except I changed the 10 hole wheels for turbine wheels
off a GT. It needed tires but was a very straight car, had premium sound,
and power everything.
I'm assuming his is automatic. Mine was stick and had 2.73 gears.
