1987 300 TDT with 30,000 miles and single owner

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in this car. My dad told me to junk it but I think it has some value. Its a 1987 300 TD seven seater 30,000 miles one owner very clean. It runs surprisingly very smooth and its been a garage kept car. Very clean and not one spot on the body.

Update: So I got it back from the shop here is a pic, this is taken without a car wash in almost 10 years lol. The car is in such great condition. I pulled the car fax and this was the result. Its single owner last service was in 2005 and it hasn't been driven since then and even then it was driven maybe a few times. In reality it was last driven in 2003. I drove it today and it was definitely a head turner. Car hasnt been registered since 2010 i will wait for sticker than get a nice detail on it, after that I will post many many pictures.

Sure there is value. Pictures and service description will help with the valuation. With that mileage it is likely a $5-8k car.

Apple, if the car is real and the miles are real, write a thorough ad, take 40 pictures, toss it in ebay. You'll be amazed at what it sells for. It's certainly not "junk".

And if you want to make a quick buck and get it gone, sell it to me and I'll mess with the ebay thing.

30K miles? Not 300K?

As mentioned already by others, and especially if it really only has 30K, there are plenty of interested people and there is definitely some value in it.

Just need a lot more info and pictures.

You're a car-flipper's dream. Your car definitely has value, and should not be junked. Take good photos and detail its history and you should get a good sum on ebay.
