Value of SVT
If this is the wrong area for this topic, I apologize, THIS IS NOT A FOR SALE POST. I have a 2003 ZX5 SVT Focus. It's silver with blue interior. It has 150,500 miles. The windshield is cracked and the rear passenger door is dented from where someone backed into it last summer. Door only opens from the inside now. There is some rust behind the wheels on the lower part of the body.
Kelley Blue Book gives the value of the car in "fair" condition as $3551. According to their definition of "fair" I will go with that being the condition of the car. I plan to sell this car in the spring. Obviously, it will have more miles on it by then. I do not intend to repair anything on it, except for maybe the windshield.
I will try to get some pictures on here tomorrow to give you a better idea of the condition of the vehicle. What I want to know is what should i realistically expect to get for this car? I hold no delusions about it being a greater car than it is, I'm not trying to rip anyone off, but at the same time, I don't want to rip myself off. If this were your vehicle, what would you start it at and what would you settle for? Thanks.
