Default A-What-Would-You-Pay-For-My-Car Thread

What do you guys think someone (on here or someone who is a SC300 enthusiast) would pay for my car because I'm thinking about getting rid of it.

-1997 SC300
-Black exterior (fresh paint(originally was black but it had a lot of chips and some dings/scratches)
-black interior!!! -I'd rate it 8 outta 10 - no tears
-converted manual -yep I know I know, converted, bleh, but it's still a manual and its a W58 with a 6 puck clutch
-debadged/filled trunk holes/de-wing'd

Mods:
-Blitz Nur Spec axle backs with a 3" to dual whatever the Blitz diameter is
-Tein HA coilovers
-LS400 bbk + cross drilled/slotted rotors
-18x10 Rota Grids +15 all around w/ new tires and rolled fenders
-Pioneer touchscreen w/ 12" Rockford Fausgate sub

Now the "bad"
-260k miles - I've only owned it for like 2 months but have put 5k miles on it but it runs like a champ (but I've put a lot of work/money into making it clean-clean again)
-that's the only bad thing

Reason: I just don't know if I want this car as badly as I thought I did... I kinda just have other priorities in life.


What would you pay for it if you had the option/What do you think it's worth?

It's just a thought that's been going back and forth in my mind...

Yeah I'd say 5-7k. People will be scared of the mileage.

I was told by the last owner that he didn't know if it was the original engine or not, but when he compression tested it, they were all within 10 of each other in the 170-180 range if I remember correctly.

I'd prolly have to drive it. 2JZ-GE engines are plentiful and cheap, so who cares if it blows up. If the control arm bushings, rack, CV's, driveshaft, ball joints etc felt good, I'd pay top dollar. So if the car generally felt solid, 8ish.

If the car was an original 5sp black on black, congrats you have a rare model. I'll say 8k

You might beable to get 7k from someone who knows why a 97 5spd is special, otherwords, don't expect more than 5.5-6k.

Just make sure you emphasize the reliability of these cars to the buyer cause for sure the buyer will be scared off by the miles. I would sell off the mods and then sell the car
