I highly doubt you can get a SVT worth anything for that price. Not only are they hard to come by but to find one that has been well maintained, not beat on and in nice condition is equally as hard.

I agree though, you can find lower mileage ones like this for a better deal

Offer the dealer 8K

he most likely bought that for about 5-6 grand.

Bonus if it has the 2.3L engine
Do a carfax on it and see where it was originally.

oh and two years ago i got mine with 18,00o on the clock and at a price of 15,000 so yeah if its well taken car of with not too many miles i'd snap that baby up. and treat it real nice that blue is a hard color to match, lol.
