I have the chance to buy an 88 GT, five speed, car, one owner, with 92K original miles. Very, very clean. Never raced or abused. No mods and very well maintained. What is this car worth, in the real world?
Any help appreciated.

Yea, I am familiar with the NADA, but have not considered them to be "real world." I used to do some automotive wholesaling, and if you lived by the Yellow book, you died by it! Just not realistic in my experience. Thanks for your help anyway.

I appreciate the input guys. This is a very nice car, way above average. I have gotten on Ebay and looked around as well. Looks to me like $3500-perhaps $4500.00 is the fair market price for a pretty nice car, and a bit more for a really nice one, like this.
Thanks again!

If the car is very clean and has good mechanicals and interior it could go from 4k-5.5k at least from what I have seen locally. btw what color is the interior?

Interior is the grey cloth without a rip or tear anywhere.
I am now supposed to take delivery of the car this Tuesday or Wednesday. :-)

I realize I'm real late on this...but, check to see if it's MAF or speed density fuel injection. I think they had both during the '88 year.

Speed density is ok if you're not going to modify for a bunch more power, and just drive it for the fine car that it is.

MAF will accept power mods easily without confusing the computer like speed density does.

For example, my '88 Lincoln...speed density.
If I plan on doing anything with it, I'll have to convert to MAF.
