    First of all, where you live is going to determine what you can get for it. Me personally, I wouldn't pay 8k for a 97 GT. In Alabama, you can find SN95's stangs cheap. I think I paid a little too much for mine at 5500 bucks. I have a buddy selling a 95 GT fully loaded he had it for sale for 7k and sold it for 5k. It had about the same mileage as yours.

    Remember, you would probably be better off taking all your mods off and turning your car back to stock and selling your mods separately.

    Most of that is maintenance so it won't count it just shows you did keep it up. But for that price people are going to buy the faster new edge car.

    you can probably get about 6-7 thousand but it does depend on the area.

    Not trying to be a jerk, but 6k.

    I have a stroked, Novi 2200 blown T-56, and mine isn't worth more than 10k, resale on these sucks, especially with the 05's out now.

    Im going to say 6 or 7k.

    I sold my 97 gt, with 5 times the mods you have and around the same miles for 9500.

    But again, it depnds on what area of the country you live in. I swear, I need to start buying some of these cheap SN95's here in Alabama and heading north and starting a car lot.

    my point was I got a ridiculous offer on my car for that price (my car was 400hp and blown)... he would have a hard time getting near that anywhere in the country

    I paid $5k for a car w/ 4 times more mods than that... but i just lucked out.

    I say you can get $5-6k for it. nothing more than that.

    I let my car go for $16k and that was just getting what i had in it back out of it

    on these cars paint and interior make a big difference. Extermely clean paint and immac interior would probably at best fetch 7k. If paint is faded at all, interior worn then your probably looking at no more that 5500. The mods probably hurt the car because anyone that is obsessed with mustangs will think that you hotrodded the car. . . . witch you probably did but so do I . . . . mods on stangs usually hurt the car. Honestly I wouldn't even mention the mods when selling the car . Just let the buyer know that you did a very good job of maintaining the car.
