Well guys I'm looking at buying a 03 Cobra in Sonic Blue with just under 60k miles on the odo (been driven in winter). The car is a one owner car owned by an older guy, bone stock. Tires are in decent shape, looks like they were replaced recently. What would be a good price for this car considering the miles? What should I look for or watch out for?

:headbang:

20K at most, if brakes and everything are good. Plus there probably quite a bit of rust underneath if it was driven in the winter.

Id offer 18 and work from there.

with 60k i would think you need to be way under 20k. there are 20-30k mile cars doing 21-22k with decent mods. there is no reason to pay more for an "unmolested" 60k car. it is very easy to put a car back to stock

^It sure is, but this guy is older and from inspecting various parts, looks like they were never removed before. We will see how this works out :)

I've driven mine in winter and I can hardly find rusty underneath mine. Of course I wash undercarriage every 2 weeks in winter.

I'd probably take $17,000 for mine with 65K, new tires, 2.93 pulley on Stiegemeier Stage 3 blower, in great shape for a [used to be] daily driver. sits in the garage a lot now since I have an extra DD around. Not looking to sell, just estimating value.
