Looking at selling my Celica...

Postby ®usty » Tue Aug 01, 2017 8:10 pm

Hi all wanting to get ideas on prices on selling my Celica. I need to move onto a more practical vehicle (apparently) Will be sad to see it go

Trademe shows GT4's are around the 13k mark. Celicas range from 2-3K for high km's, ~8K for slightly better condition, with one selling for 11,500 apparently?

People that know me, know that I have meticulously looked after this vehicle over the last 10 years of ownership.
Garaged, regular oil changes (6,000km's with 10w30 oil & TRD oil filters) and washed, polished & waxed regular too. I have receipts for all the parts I'm pretty sure

Tough call, its not a particularly desirable model of Celica, but it is an exceptional example of one.
Maybe list at 6k and see how the market responds?
1988 KE70 Wagon - Slowly rusting
1990 NA6 MX-5 - because reasons
2018 Ranger - Because workcar
1997 FD3S RX-7 Type R - all brap, all the time
OMG so shiny!

yeah unfortunatly all the extra's you add to a car does not increase it's value,
sometimes they are actually worth more standard.

Nice car, but to the average person it's still just a red celica.

I'd have said $4k-$6k to the right person. The problem is that it's a nice tidy car with low kms, but personally I see mods like that and assume that it has had a hard life. As Matt said it'd probably be worth more standard.
