Could anyone guess an estimated worth of my 85 GL AT/FWD Sedan?


80k Original Miles (My grandma's car since new).

Brake pads @ 20%

Runs Solid

2 Studded snow tires go with it. Looking to sell soon (Seattle) but need estimated value. Figured this might be the best place to find out.

looks pretty clean. personally I wouldn't go any higher than 2k. and that's if nothing needs fixing right away. ideally I'd pay about 15 for. that's me.

Front wheel drive only... alot of people want 4WD.

This might not be the place to find the true value... I bought an 85 EA82 FWD wagon last year with 80k on it.  Had the red pimp interior.  Beautiful car.  Paid $200 for it because they thought it had a blown head gasket.   Turned out that the intake gasket was leaking into the cyl.   Easy fix.   The most I ever paid for a pre-90 Subie was $800.  I have 7 of them.

For your area, I would say the most you could get would be $1000.   Depends on how quickly you want to sell it.

Why not keep it... it's a classic !
