Default $7000 for a super minty 89 GT, worth it?







Car has 64k miles, is all stock besides the hood and exhaust, has been garage kept, and by the pictures seems super clean. It's an hour and a half away and I can't decide whether or not I should make the drive to check it out. I know a ton of people somehow get their 10k mile cars for $170, but I know that'll never happen to me.

The guy told somebody I know the lowest he'll go is $7,000. He has it listed for $8000. I'm gonna try to offer him a little less and hopefully he'll take it if he knows the cash is there, but if he doesn't, it's $7000.

Worth it?

If all mint with no issues id get it for 6800 if he would take it... Somebody would be willing to pay more then that for it though im sure. If you get it though do me a favor and change those ugly wheels.

From the pics it looks like an excellent deal. My first was an '89 5.0 If I had the means I would spend $7000 on that car in a heartbeat.

It looks very well taken care of, no accidents, no smog failures, good paint, garage kept, under 75k miles. Looks like a good find. Definitly make sure to take it for a drive, check for leaking oil, hard shifting, you know all the normal things.

Good luck.

If it's never been wrecked, it's worth that. It's not all stock though. I see three engine mods.
