Hey Guys. First post in this section. Looking at a 90 T-Bird with well over 100,000 miles and the engine runs like a dog (3.0 that must be rebuilt). The body is in good shape as well as the interior. It belongs to my nephew and some guy wants to give him $400 for it. No, its not a typo, four hundred. Any ideas of what its really worth? I'll buy it from him before I let someone mess him over. Thanks.

humm, should be a 3.8 if it's a V6 and 100K isn't much for that engine, unless something broke or it really wasn't takin care of.....

In my opinion anything that runs is worth a grand and that has a nice body and interior.....

So, would this be a roller cam car? I just helped him replace the head gaskets a few months ago and the lifters looked standard (at least from what I remember).

I agree about the $1000 if its running. However, this one is barely running.

I'd say $1000 is fair for a nice body that just needs engine work. At $400 he is getting hosed. That's parts car territory.

Are you sure the engine is terminal?

I haven't had a chance to really check out the engine. I have seen it in action. Not pretty. I smokes pretty good and can hardly get out of its own way. I notices some serious scratches in the cylinders when we replaced the head gaskets so I'm pretty sure the bores need to be dressed out (finish honed). There was only the slightest ridge at the top of each cylinder so I'm thinking it has some cracked rings at the least.
