I bought this car last year to enjoy every once in a while but mostly as an investment to put a few dollars into restoring a few items, but like many good intentions this idea went no where. It's costing my $125 a month for the storage facility plus insurance and realistically I'm never doing anything with this vehicle, so I need to get rid of it, but not quite sure what a fair price would be. There's only one other for sale on eBay. Unfortunately I don't know about the history of this vehicle; I bought it before I understood how important that was. What I do know is obviously what you can see in the pictures of how beautiful it is. On the downside it has 245,000 miles on the clock. Unknown what work was done. I do know it starts right up and it's definitely slow on the acceleration, but once it gets going it drives beautifully. It does have the quished down driver's seat which is annoying, but otherwise the interior is in pretty good condition. I want to sell the car at a realistic price but not give it away. Amazingly enough all of the electrical systems work fine including the cruise control and no warning lights on the instrument panel and there's not a spot of rust anywhere and a nice sound system; perhaps someone will recognize this vehicle. Right now the car is in a storage unit in Milford, PA, but I can bring it to Manhattan (New York, not Kansas) easily enough. Any help here on what the fair market value is of my car?
