^^^^IMHO and as mentioned above, the pink steering wheel, plus the "added" gauges, window stickers, and the blue IC hose got to go... I would look for the engine ID plate that goes on the alt housing before putting it on ther market. I also believe that - under the same conditions - an 87 has less value than a real 930 76 ~ 79; so, most of the above estimates are little high, but nevertheless get as much as you can and let us know. Good luck!

I love this forum. The collective knowledge and opinions are invaluable. I do follow the market fairly closely, but as owners, we tend to over-value our cars sometimes. I'm not under any financial pressure to sell the car, so I certainly won't be giving it away.

I really appreciate all of the comments and advice. I knew I was going to catch hell for the pink (it's really red) steering wheel! I'll switch it back to stock, as well as, some of the other recommendations. I may leave the engine/exhaust bolt-ons for now and see how it goes. I'll include photos of all the stock pieces, since i have everything. The car just runs so fantastically now...

Hey, if anyone wants a '97 B/W Viper GTS for 40K, let me know. The market sucks for them, as well!

Regards, R. Gordon

Such sales tend to move slow, that is in my experince.

It also depends on your location, and the econimics and market as well
supply and demand.

Porsche's and such machines go thru trends, it also depends on the buyers.

There are garage queens and then those that infact drive the vehicles. For me I don't get
as concerned with milage on specific machines, and others I go thru with a fine toothed comb.

For some buyers up grades are added value or such up grades that are period correct or
improve the mechanical reliability of a vehicle are welcomed. Others, not so much.

You've treated your 930 really well. ^___^

I like the pink/red wheel. Let me know if you decide to sell it.

I think we should all help drive up the market. Lets put out cars on ebay and flood the market. Buy it now for $50,000.

Hmmm, couldn't disagree more w johnm. 30k isn't fair, it's a ultra low ball offer.
This would only apply if the car had a story, or the seller was desperate to sell.
The low miles and overall condition make this cars value what it is IMO.
If it had 85k miles, ****ty condition, etc, then maybe 30k.
Good cars sell at a good price, lesser cars get lowballed. Think Sloane vs fleabay,
Like I said, 45 as is, 50 stone cold stock with a showroom detail job.

Beautiful car, great color, and great ownership time with all records, parts, and stories about the car for the last 15 years is worth a considerable amount of money. What you know about the car, for the length of time you've owned will be of great assistance to the next owner. When you sell, however, your phone may ring frequently with questions! Good luck with sale, she's beautiful!

I usually hold my tongue on prices because as others have stated, it is only worth what someone will pay. Start high and you can always come down. I can say ( as I have been looking for a while with mixed results ) that in Canada the prices are waaaaaayyyy lower than what my US cousins think theirs are worth. I looked at one in Calgary that missed the BIN on EBay. 87 red, 3 owners, 52000 km bone stock and mint. The EBay BIN was $35k. I went to arrange the PPI and the guy would not answer the phone again, he wanted to keep it. Now am looking at a mint 89, 52000km for way lower than what south of the line would be. Both have metric speedos from new. Sorry for the ramble but wanted to give you some basis for prices.

I won't take less than 80k for my '79...no one would ever pay anywhere close to that, so I can't ever sell it

Bottom line is these cars are emotional buys. Sometimes the market is up...sometimes is down. The price you ask and the actual price you get only depends on what the market will bare. This does not mean one should give away their car. Be realistic but not a fool.

Sloan is not a good example as a price comparison. He will sit on a car for ends at a time... Don't get me wrong if one has the patience to wait 1 to how many years for it to sell..by all means do so. Sloan is the exception not the rule.

You sir have a beautiful car(minus the pink steering wheel...jk ). Check all sorts of classified listings on usual sites to gage a selling price. Then form a number you feel comfortable with(without having sellers remorse). Then be firm on your price...as in Field of Dreams..."if you build it they will come"

For those who say $30k is fair, I bet are still shopping......I wonder why?...oh oh I know I know..because a well sorted car with no issue in immaculate condition doesn't exist for $30k..that's why

Well, if nothing else, I'm glad that my post facilitated a lively debate on the current market for an '87 930! I've had quite a few offers for mid to high 30's sight unseen from this discussion alone. So, I tend to think that YOU (and TorresMD, RarlyL8, SCHNELE, 81Kremer930, Enzo) are correct price-wise. I'm not insulted by johnm1469's offer - I'd grab it too as a buyer for 35K! See, that's the thing about being a non-distressed seller - thankfully, I can be patient!

Not surprised to see these offers. I would wait till spring for a better price. When I was looking for my 930 I noticed they sold fast. FYI I paid 30K for a 60K miles bone stock 86, and I think not a bad deal at all at that time.

If you're referring to me, I already have one. Mine would be way out of your price range anyway.

take a bottle of black liqued shoe polish and have at it with your pink suede steering wheel and see what happens...

the value of your 930 goes up at least a thousand bucks.

I'll just interject one thing: "CARMA"

And, yes, i spelled it correctly [for this purpose]. It's defined as: "bringing upon oneself inevitable results, good or bad, either in this life or in a reincarnation."

Mr. Gordon: your car is beautiful and worth more than mine! [whatever that amount is]. Good luck with your sale...

John: i bought [thought I stole] my car for $19K in 2008 - - as it looks right now... It wasn't daily driven and therefore had some mechanical issues [it sat for 9-years]. By the time I sorted everything out [plus some upgrades], I had over $50K in it... The way I see it, it's "pay now" or "pay later..." Good luck with your search... Shannon
