    I am looking for a daily driver and came across this car local. KBB says its around $1800 which I dont know about lol. What do you guys see as a realistic offer for this car assuming I go to test it out and its driveable? I dont have much experience with a sn95 gt, just know the Cobra market lol.

    Looks good despite the faded paint. I'd say 1800 is fair, but I would offer $1350-$1500 cash.(due to the high mileage)

    Doesnt hurt to offer low; if they get offended they're just a ***** and don't understand how to haggle

    I paid 2500 for my 94 5.0 vert with 140,000 yes my paints in better shape and its a very bit if it runs good and drives good I think 2000 to 2500 is reasonable

    $2-2700 here. Of course depending on mechanical condition and maintenance history.

    5.0s for some reason tend to be more than 4.6es. Even tho the 4.6 is newer, they all try and do the 'last year of the 5.0' bit.

    $2-$2.5K seems reasonable. Looks to be a good solid running car.

    Ok guys I will go and drive it and see if the odometer will even work. If the car needs anything else other than paint then he for sure wont get over $2k I guess. I have a feeling he is going to get pissed and maybe call back later on.

    Hmm.. It reminds me of my car when i first got it, faded, 160k, 5.0 and i paid 2800. If you get it for 2k, that would be a steal.

    I wouldn't be disappointed if I got it for $2500, assuming it runs well and the interiors decent.
