View Full Version : how much would i get?

04-16-2008, 04:59 AM
okay so ive decided my celi needs to go=(
as much as i dont want to do this its needed.
my friends bf said he would give me a grand for it
1991 st
it has about 163k miles one her
clutch was put in about a month ago
brand new dashboard
clear corner jdms
new brakes
and oil changed regularly
she is dented up pretty badly with a dent on the quarter panel, passanger side fender and hood. the trunk lid is bent on the corner and has rust on the quarter panel dent and the drivers seat has the one tear that most celi's do. also the clear coat is fading a bit...also has a little oil leaking into spark plugs

she isnt the best looking car in the world but i love her but she just keeps costing me more and more money. it sucks cause everyone i know/dont know make fun of my car and i really wanted to prove them wrong and fix her up but its just costing too much soooo ive decided to sell her=***(

a grand aint bad, try for 1500 tho

04-16-2008, 05:20 AM
you really think i could get 1500 for her?

04-16-2008, 05:25 AM
i go by this when selling a car, if it runs, its worth at least a 1000

04-16-2008, 05:44 AM
^^hah good deal good deal sir i like that i might start going by that

04-16-2008, 05:45 AM
oh snap i forgot to add the big thing my bad my bad ill edit it but it leaks a little oil into spark plugs??

04-16-2008, 05:53 AM
The oil in the plugs could be the valve cover gasket or valve seals. I just did that on my Lexus.

I would say take the $1,000 and run. Take it from me, I have low balled people beyond belief and made money on cars. If some Joe Shmo or an old person had your ST I would offer them $400 and do the minor work to it and sell it for 1400.

Hopefully I'm not offending you, but I want you to have a perspective of a buyer, albeit me being a car flipper, but still.

A grand is a good price, perhaps see how high he will go. Take no less than that from him. Put an ad on CraigsList for $1300 and go from there. You will get people wanting to offer you $600 or less. I can almost certify that.

Here's a run down on what it would cost ME to fix your car if I owned it.

Trunk lid: $75 with three piece wing
Fender: $75
Filling misc minor dents and dings: my time
Paint: I could probably have it repainted the same color for $250 out the door.

04-16-2008, 02:49 PM
oh and viking your not offending me at all i understand where your coming from and its cool

04-16-2008, 04:27 PM
I bid 1 dollar drew

04-16-2008, 05:08 PM
I have seen the car in action, and it does run well, I think a grand is a fair price for it

04-16-2008, 05:38 PM

That will take along time to get use to

I hate to rain on the parade... If it's PERFECT mechanically, it may be worth a grand... but these cars just aren't worth anything anymore.

I mean....


I went and looked at this car, and it's in VERY good condition. He can't spell, but it's in VERY good condition.

I hope you do get a grand out of it, i just don't see it happening.

I've never paid more than $600 for a celica, and i won't, unless it's an alltrac.

thanks man! i love her to death but she has to go..........

04-16-2008, 09:16 PM
I think $1000 is fair, I wouldn't expect any more than 1300 though. Not everyone values these cars like we all do.

04-16-2008, 09:55 PM
gas nowdays i save her.

04-16-2008, 10:22 PM
^^ yah really, Im sure you could squeeze out a good 800-1k out of that car.

04-17-2008, 02:28 AM

04-17-2008, 02:58 AM
thats cool, its no big deal but at least everything worked out good. You gonna put on those clear corners and gauges? That yard is starting to get real pricey about a lot of parts, they use to be dirt cheap but I found another yard that is starting to be much cheaper and easier so I may switch which yard I go to
