KBB, NADA, edmunds, etc. all seem pretty useless. 

 

i searched the FS forum for recent sales data but didn't see a whole lot of 1984 (or 1983 for that matter) turbo wagons being sold or moved around the board. 

 

obviously condition and mileage trumps all but what should i expect to ask for the old wagon? 

 

172k miles

failing front diff

disc brake conversion

stacks of service records as far back as 1999 when i bought the car from the original owner

9/10 interior

7-7.5/10 exterior

tinted windows

new tune up parts

new red top battery

new bosch (not reman) starter

plus a bunch of other things

 

what do you guys think? i'm not holding onto the idea of keeping the car because it's rare/unique/95% original, it's just that i have no use for it and it's been garaged for the last 5 years. someone out there should enjoy this thing.  :unsure:

I sold one in pretty fair shape for $2000 about 2 months ago. Ran great and had good transmission, turbo, and engine with slightly lower compression in #1 cylinder

I haven't sold it yet, but would be (mostly?) interested in the tranny... How many miles does it have, pretty low right?
