That sounds reasonable for one that doesn't have issues. A lot more information would be required to support that price.

It doesn't look like a sunroof model, and the OP references restoration (missing headrest, sitting for 8 years). Those are the only strikes against it I have seen so far.

So, we know it's a car from the rust belt that sat for eight years and missing a headrest.

Hell of a sales pitch...

Should be worth about a thousand, maybe twelve hundred if you can get the pictures upright. Is the dog's head covering up body damage on right front fender?

Original paint and good interior are two very nice features. Too bad about that rear door. Getting that properly fixed could potentially work out very well in your favor.
