Default What is a fair price to pay for a 5-speed 1994 or 1995 SC300

What would be a fair price to pay for a 1994 or 1995 5-speed SC300?

Both cars are very nice and both cars have less than 80k miles.

The 1994 is red and the 1995 is white.

The '95 is a one owner car. Not sure on the red one.

Everything works on both cars.

The red one has original leather seats, with the driver seat showing a little wear.

The seats in the white one have been redone in leather that looks like original.

Timing belts have been replaced in both cars.

The red one has new tires.

Here is the red 1994:




And here is the white 1995:

Dude,

They are both easily worth $5,000 in California.

Both are very nice examples.

The spoiler on the red one isn't original to the car. I'm not sure if it's aftermarket or swapped from a '97+ model.

Re-done leather on the white one is a pretty big advantage.

I prefer red over white (even though I have a white SC), but I'm not crazy about the pin stripes.

If you can get either under $5k, you're getting a good deal. In some areas you may be able to get them for well under that, but those areas should consider themselves lucky. If either seller goes significantly below $5k, ****** it up.

It would be easy if the price on either car were anywhere near $5,000. Unfortunately, they are both much higher than $5k which is why I posted the question.

I'd say they're worth around 7-8k. How much are they listed at?

I've been shopping for an SC for a few years. Factory 5-speed in that condition with that mileage- $8k at the very least. Around here anyway (Chicagoland). I'd buy both if they were $5k each.

It's worth as much as the next buyer willing to pay for it, they are rare so if you buy one make sure it's an original and not swapped one

^ That's a good point. Run the VINs and make sure they show up as original 5spd's.

nice looking cars. cant believe the low mileage. $5-6K for one would be a great price for one.

Man thats insanely low. I'm in the market for one and there are guys that want 5500 for either non running or high mileage. One guy even has one posted for 12k with 87k miles

I guess I stole mine....I paid $3,000 for a 1994 5-speed, single owner, with 102k miles. The first 5-speed SC300 I bought was back in 2005, I think I paid $2k with 186k miles

That white one looks just like my baby, it was listed for 6 but got it for 5! 130k mi, it's all about the mileage if it was under 120k I think $6k+ is fair. Bonus' for rare color combos and the less cosmetic and mechanical problems needed to cherry it out.

Yeah that red one for 5k? I highly doubt somebody would sell it for that, it looks immaculate i would say 7-8k depending on mileage and other factors white one looks not as good condition maybe 5-6k
