NEED input... what is my 87 GL worth?
Posted 01 November 2003 - 04:24 AM
1987 Subaru GL 4WD 5 speed Dual range
Calmaster rims, 50% tread on tires, XT seats ($150 back when they were rare) $100 short shifer, 93K on engine (since birth.... 35K + 58K that ive put on it) NEW $385 redline/weber setup (about 10K on it), New freeflow exhaust system $400+, 10K on it)
The car has PS and Pm... no power windows or locks...
The interior is in pretty good shape, the paint is very shiny, it has a dent in the liftgate and a small dent in the rocker of the RR door.
Personally to me the car is worth $2000-2500
Oh ya... its rust free

It has new timing belts, plugs, wires.... basically a 60K service done to it.
Also has a $250 CB setup and a retrofitted Impreza tape deck (show em the dealer price on an impreza tape deck... that may change their mind....)
I figure a dealer would ask like 1500 for it, and with all the mods that could bump it up like 500-1000 depending on where you get em.
The odometer may read 274K, but in its heart the car is still 93,000 miles young
And a 1987 GL with 93K goes for $2685
Other than occasional dieseling due to the weber, I feel it drives like a GL with 93K, so thats the number I am fighting for

This is true. Up there in the NorthWest, Subarus really hold value...
Down here in FL, where no one cares :boohoo: that GL would be worth no more than $500 guaranteed...

Carr subaru said 1000-1500 is reasonable

Maintenance doesn't matter.
What the subaru dealership says doesn't matter unless they put it in writing. Even then it doesn't matter much unless they currently have an 87 GL wagon for sale to back up what they say.
Nothing matters excepts current printed copies of book values as described above and hard copies of local soobs for sale. All of this will be temporized by what the adjuster has to say. And it is his job to save the insurance company money.
Get your paperwork together. Do your homework. Or you will be in for a nasty surprise and all the friends and friendly dealerships in the world won't be able to help you.
After a quick look, Kelley Blue Book places your car at around $2000.. thats nice and all, but insurance companies tend to try to avoid using Kelley's figures. And here's why: Edmunds lists your car, at dealer retail price around $800. Thats probably the price the insurance company will give you unless you can prove its worth more.

86 GL wagon (low miles) $1950
86 DL 4WD 70K $2950
88 DL $1495
I also found my big envelope of receipts
I know I probably wont get a whole bunch, but I am still gonna try.
