I'd think that's too much given the condition it's in. If he replaces the engine, and the car is in excellent shape inside and out, then $4500 may be about right.

As it is now though, no way...that's too much. What's the condition of the rest of the car?

he SAYS (I haven't seen the car)....that it's a 60K original mile car....and, again, he SAYS it's immaculate inside and out....(you know how that goes *lol*)...but he says he has every stitch of paperwork since the car was bought new......
still....it's a 4 banger.......

Actually, if it's the 2.8, it's a V6. The 4 cylinder was 2.3.

Either way, it's no V8, and no Cobra. Heh.

I bought my '77 V6 Ghia back in '94 for $1000. The interior was truly immaculate (the only part of the car that's NEVER needed work), the body was decent...had some nicks here and there, eventually got a paint job...but the drivetrain was slightly problematic (dead cylinder; engine ultimately was replaced...eventually the transmission went up, but after I had had it for 5 years).
