Car For Sale Feeler...

First: I'd like to keep this in this section because noone else cares about the SPI, and if I post this in For Sale sections, it'll get inundated with stoopid questions and hate-posts. Please don't move this, Jon, as it is important to me that if I have to sell, it at least stays with the people who can appreciate it.

Now, on to the good stuff.

I may be able to move somewhere nice (no hints yet as it is still just in the brainstorming process), so if it works out, I'll be selling the Focus and loads of other crap, but the Focus is the only thing to post in here.

I want to know if anyone is actually interested in buying my Focus. It is a turbo SPI with all the fixins. I'm working on getting the transmission out now for a fix up as recently I had some extraneous noise and grinding coming from it. It'll be fixed up right whether I plan to sell or not, so please don't let this dissuade.

All recall work was done (only a few things, not alot) and I never had to take the car in on warranty, really.

It has two small dents and minor wear and tear on the paint, but considering it's a 2001, it's in great condition. CF hood is near flawless. SVT bumper is near flawless as well (one paint scratch). Hellas = Perfect paint still.

Title is clear. Only accident was some guy scraped my stock bumper. I don't even have that bumper anymore. Airbags and stuff still intact.

I have a second fiberglass hood to go with the car. It's the second release NOPI hood. The only real flaw is during shipping, some of the layers of fiberglass chipped off around a rear corner. Minor, really. Currently painted to match (Pitch Black).

Engine/transmission has ~90,000 (I'm not in Ohio to check right now). The turbocharged life of this is less than a thousand. Everyone knows that I have a clearance issue with the turbo and fans, but I've got a thin fan I'll be installing while the transmission gets fixed.

Some of the stock parts have been retained in case of the want to swap them back in. Stock water pump pulley, stock cam gear, a few other small items.

Interior is stripped from behind the B pillar. No metal reinforcements have been cut and a few key panels have been saved. Wouldn't be hard/expensive to put back to stock interior. I have the large door panel sections and rear seats. Still have stock fronts to go with the car, and if buyer prefers, I can install the stockers ahead of time and give the Corbeaus to the buyer to sell on their own. Rear seatbelts have been removed, but retained.

Sony HU w/ 6 disc changer in glove box. Sony Edition sub/amp combo wired to be removable (for track days).

Also, I have a new, unpainted Ford rear lip to go with the car, as well as 1st generation SVT headlights (non H.I.D.). Also have 14" steelies w/ all weather tires. Used for 3 months only.

Mod list in ROTM Showcase thread.

If anyone has any idea on what I should ask or what they feel is a fair price, feel free to post up here or PM me. At what I'm willing to sell this for, someone could buy the car, put what parts they want on their own car, part out the rest, and have made a pretty good deal.

First of all, it's not officially for sale. This is paid off, so it doesn't have to go, but it'd help to have the extra cash.

Second, I'm asking YOU guys to give me numbers. I don't know what TO ask.

shit, thats a tough call, because its a 2001 with 90000 putting it at like 4-5500. but i would hate for you to have put all that into it and sell it for that shit hole of a price. honestly i say 7000, kind of high, but its a trubo plus its got a ton of other goodies

And I think that if it was sold on the market, to a regular joe wh doesn't care about cars, maybe $5000 (90k miles) However, if the right person bought it, someone who cared about the Foci, you should get considerably more.
And BTW, I've gotten a ton of PMS about that fiberglass hood. If you repaired it, im sure someone on the forum would take it off your hands.

Thanks for the input guys.

About the price, I understand that it's higher mileage would knock it's price down a notch, and if I sell, am resigned to the fact that I'll be taking a butt-raping.
