Not final sale price but demand is there. Example: that $3500 was someone waiting for it to show up. I certainly locked onto mine the sec it passed inspection..

"i'll be there saturday" it was running waiting for me in front of it's barn. had to replace ignition switch, and it has a decent paint job, but some pretty extensive cancer underneath, windshield leaks when it rains hard. but i've put 30k miles in 2 years. ecm popped an injector driver, but i am getting that fixed now.
i found a deal on craigslist for 2500 for an 84 carb model. drove down in the 83 to check it out. got the owner down to 1500, waited 3 months, then picked up for 1300 out the door. it's a runner, only minimal rust (below the step and at the shock tower in the bed). now i'm planning to swap the turbo driveline into the 84, and swap a spare outback xt auto driveline into the 83. win win!!
the key to these collector cars (and yes, these are collector cars, just like my syclone) is to simply insure them at the value you want. databases like these help, but insuring for proper value to begin with prevents the hassle after. i went through this with my first syclone. had to provide kbb collector value, and three "expert" sources. easier to just come up with a reasonable number, and insure for that to begin with. just like insuring a modded car, if you want money for the mods, insure for their added value.

Hey, I tried to email you, but your email address didn't work, so I will give you the information here.
I bought an '83 Brat this last summer here in Bountiful, Utah. It had about 190,000 miles on the car itself, but the engine and trans were from a different car and they had about 135,000 miles each. It had undergone extensive repairs on deep rust spots, but had really bad paint since it was two different colors(I repainted it later). It ran well, but leaked lots of oil. the VIN # is JF2AT53B7DF504183. The body was pretty banged up, but not too bad (I had a lot of that repaired later too). it sold for $2,600. I bought it around June 20th I think.

earlier this month i got a 1983 ea81 Brat for the low price of $400 ,been sitting since 2002 i got it from the Original Owner because her husband passed away and she can't drive a standard! interior is amazing and only 135k on the odometer which works along with everything else! picks to come! i feel as if it is worth 4x what i paid for it , jumper seats and interior are in great shape,california car i spotted it at a neighboring ranch at my Aunt's and knocked on the older womans door and she was glad to sell it and even said her husband also had an 1982 brat which she sold a year ago or else i would have go them both!
