There isn't much to see, but from what you can see. What do you think?

Fair price?

the asking price is a little high for the mileage. Although it does look nice on the outside. Its up to you, ask the seller if he has any engine and interior pics along with any service records

If it runs well, is rust-free, and body/paint is good.. that's a fair price!

170K is alot of miles for 4,800 grand IMO.

check out the price for st185's lately, its sky rocketed. It runs and drives there for its good for around 5k.

yeah but just cause something has inflated the price of st185's doesnt mean its worth it you know? Last time i checked, a st185 with "proper" mileage (1yr=10-12,000miles) was worth in excellent condition like 4500. And remember, any mods only depreciate the value of a car.

eh in some cases you do see some selling for 3500 with minor issues but the averahe st185 goes for 5-7k now... atleast for asking. That car is worth it value depending on how it runs.

It's got some sweet fog lights... that's gotta be worth like... $1k.

I would buy it if I could dump my 184.

it's a fair price if it's as clean as it looks. i'd say even a good price.

and 10k per year is pretty low these days. and as for 4500 in excellent condition? has someone been quoting kbb prices for alltracs again? :wtf:

and finally...yes, everyone *says* mods lower the value...but i've never really seen this to be the case on an alltrac.

that's just how it is.

If it is in as good as condition as it looks from the one picture, it would be worth it. If you would find an All Trac in "excellent" condition, its going to go for more than $4500. If you do find one for that price, buy it.

I'd say it's a fair price, because he is asking $4,800.

That's just a starting point. Low-ball at $3,800. Work your way up to $4,200 or something. That'd be a pretty reasonable price.

Keep pushing the point of the mileage and that you're going to have to rebuild the 3SGTE (and how much oil does it eat anyway???), regardless of rust or whatever. And the fact that wheels and mods to not increase a car's value.

I suggest, if you will buy, to have some 2000 bucks to get a new engine...

and maybe a rebuilded transmission and mounts, etc etc...

timing belt change will be a must


good luck

Jose

I talked to him, we are gonna check it tonight at 530. It has a newer mr2 3sgte (less than 100k) an he said he is flexable on the price...it sounds like its perfect almost.

Ok, so the update. It was a really nice car, but had a few stupid things that I don't like.

The center(main) vents had been replaced with a gauge cluster of three gages...dumb, they apparently mess up if you turn the vent on...wtf?

The paint looked excellent from about 10ft away, but there were a few spots they had not paid any attention to.

Turbo timer was strange, had a weird alarm.

It had really cool enkeis on it, but they were corroded in parts

Small rust in parts.

It ran really nicely, but had a little clunky sound in the rear diff when taking off/shifting...other than that it was beautiful. (BTW, IS THAT NORMAL??)

It had its motor replaced with an mr2 turbo and had less than 100k supposedly.

Excellent condition seats on the interior.

Overall, it was worth 4,000...but I'll just keep my blue GT for now...for some reason I like it better.

My black swap would have mobbed all over that thing...until we hit rain or snow.

I would definitely get one if it had lower miles...and I think I'm digging the leather seats...I wouldn't mind.

For my first alltrac experience, it was good...super cool guy...I told him he should come post sometime on ctech.

Yeah, that clunk in the back is the rear diff cradle/mount, whatever you want to call it.

They tend to always go out. That would need to be fixed. All kinds of write-ups on alltrac.net.

And yeah.... they're cool cars, but i'm becoming less and less in lust after one the more examples i drive. A swap is much more appealing to me.

I think you guys place way too much importance on the 185 when it comes to mileage. Who gives a flock what the mileage is. It's not like the 184 where there are oodles of them, and a 185 is not something you buy for a DD, it's a collectors car now. Yes, lower mileage will raise the value of the car, but really, at this age? Time will have taken it's toll on many of the parts mileage would have if it has low miles. All I'm saying is, if you're looking at buying a 185, you're looking at buying something to work on and baby, mileage should be low on the list. You should consider the price of a 185 based on year and overall condition. If you're the type that wants it to be a clean stock example, then value should be based on the condition of original parts. You also have to remember location. Prices vary greatly in every area. That price to me is a good deal in my area simply because 5gC prices here are a bit higher than other areas. Consider a 93 vert in really good shape here can go for around $4k here.

^If I had the extra money for sure, $4,000 would be a steal...I was thinking for more of a dd with winter appeal, and of course the rareness factor.

Maybe I'm just lucky, but I haven't really had much problem with my All Trac. I've put 22,000 miles on it in a little less than two years. Other than a power steering pump and pressure hose, there hasn't been much wrong with it that either my son or myself or my former repair shop didn't cause in the first place. It hasn't been off the road that much in the past two years. It ran great going down to Tennessee and back for the Dragon run. One thing about these cars, you have to keep the maintenance up and you do have an additional set of drive wheels and associated parts. I think what happens in some cases is that people buy them expecting to just get in and drive the hell out of them. That is usually what is wrong in the first place, the guy you bought it from did exactly that and now doesn't want to do the maintenance.

That's just my two cents worth. :)
