According to Kelly Blue Book -

Trade in value is: $3,475

Private Party is: $5,330


The challenge you have is finding someone willing to pay for the modifications. In the reseller market, the mods mean nothing to the value of the car. You never get out what you put into the car. It's a sad reality. That said, you may be able to find someone willing to pay for them, but I wouldn't count on much more than $5,000

To maximize your investment, I would recommend that you return the car to stock trim. Ask $5,300 and sell the go fast goodies on this forum or on ebay.

By selling the mods, you can expect to recover about 50% of your total investment.

Good Luck!

That poses a problem....

I get the impression that you need to sell it quickly.

Without the stock parts I would ask $6,000 - $6,500 at the most. More than that - with a USED car you will have difficulty.

The bottom line is that you need to determine what you minimum threshold of pain is to sell.

If you aren't willing to sell the car for less than $6,000 then you are better off keeping it and being selective about the buyer.

Very few would even consider a modified car for $7500.

To put it in perspective, I am buying a 2004 SVT Cobra RACE Car. There is over $20,000 invested in the motor alone, Full cage, tube chassis, suspension and BIG brakes.

The seller's asking price is $3,700. Because it is a track car with lots of modifications, he can't sell it for what he invested into the car.

To you it's worth it. To someone else that may not be the case, most of the time.


Listen to the snake .

Ask a price high enough you have some room to negotiate and still get what you need out of the car. But if it's a case where you need a quick sale be prepared to get low balled and take one of the offers.


Curious as to the why though?
I mean you're selling a car that I assume is paid for and should get somewhat decent mileage then going an looking for one that is a bit cheaper, you have no clue on it's history/maintenance . . . for what gain to you?
