Do you have proof/receipts of the "perfect suspension"?

It's sad that knowing how much money and time spent on this car will never see a return. NADA says $5800, just $400 more than my bone stock 97, with 80k more miles and 2 years older...

That being said, I would offer you $9500 to save the trouble of a swap and because its factory DWP. What are you expecting to ask for it for real though?

I don't know how you price a heavily modded vehicle like that, other than adding up the cost to do all the customizations and lopping off some arbitrary percentage. There's no such thing as market value in your case. No matter what, selling it is going to be dependent on finding someone who wants that exact setup, so you have to appeal to their wanting to buy something with it all done and save on the cost of doing it themselves.

The suspension was inspected by Sound Performance, and all components were deemed to be in excellent condition.

There is a ton more work done here than just a simple swap... this is an extraordinarily clean swap, wouldn't you agree?

Totally agree with you. I am not dying to sell it, and could cover it up or just keep driving it as my second/third car. That said, what would YOU value it at?

IMO, I would price it somewhere between $14k-18K based on what you have listed there. But Im different than most people, I could care less what NADA/KBB THINK a car is worth. Personally with the mods listed, car being in great appearance condition, I would pay closer to $18k+. Would consider $20k if it was 6-speed.

the swap alone is worth at least 10k

I would not take less than 15k for it...would fetch more if it has manual trans

Welcome to CL, this thread is a classic testing the waters thread and its not allowed in this forum. We do have a vehicle classifieds for helping our members sell our cars. If you actually do want to sell your car then please post a price and place it in the vehicle classifieds section. Surely if you bought the car you can come up with the price for it.
