I'm on the SS of Indy. I've also seen this on CL for a month +. I called asked some questions but didnt really feel like I was getting much of the truth. No maintenience/repair records. Guy just seemed to not know a thing about the car.

As far as you saying the other SVTF's on CL are over priced, you have to make sure your comparing "apples to apples" rather than "apples to oranges". The KBB thing you mentioned, DOES NOT take into account the rariety of a vehicle. Hell my 2000 SVTC I paid $3K for and restored to showroom new, had less than $5K in it, sold for $7K (with 133K miles) with a 4" thick stack of maintenance/repair records. But KBB stated my SVTC was $3950 on the high end which is just plain laughable! When it come to cars like ours you can take KBB & throw it out the window.

Good luck with your SVTF.
