Newbie here.

I found a '97 with 80,000 mi, appears to be very good shape. New clutch and bearing, new top and carpets. He wants $12500.

Are there any typical "issues" I should be aware of on this car?

Thanks for any info,..

Bob

Nothing that isn't the normal wear and tear. Congrats on the new purchase to be and welcome to our forums.

I can't find much in the way of published values for this year of Mustang SVT Cobra convertible, so I don't know if 12,500 is a good price or not. It seems a bit stiff for a 16 year old car.

Go to autotrader.com and price them out. I thought 12,500 was too much but I thought you already had the wheels in motion?

$12.5K is steep for a 97 with 80K miles. A few more thousand and you can be in an 03 cobra.

I think I'll offer him $9,500 and give no more than $10,000.

Thanks,
