    Yea same nada has clean retail @ 24.2k

    Although that’s book value I have been seeing a lot of them 1-5k priced over value so not sure if the cars are demanding higher then book? I notice many do not sell quickly when priced way over though but when they come within reason they are being snagged.

    it will be worth it once you find it. Don't compromise. Get the one that checks off the checklist. They are out there and the 2020's are around the corner.

    Bump

    Any opinions on pricing for a 12 gt500 silver with no strips base with 83k for $25k? Fair, good, or great priced?

    That is a TON of miles on a '12...

    If that's your budget it's probably fair price. I'd offer $23k.

    Yea that’s what I was thinking. It’s an average of 11k miles a year almost. The car is stock minus mufflers and appears to be well kept. It’s just hard to get over the miles though

    The car was a daily driver for someone. It has been driven and enjoyed as it was intended.

    Absolutely, not knocking the car by no means I am highly considering it. Just wasn’t sure if it was a good price or not.

    I’ve been able to find a few 07-09 with between 36000-60000 miles for 25k and less and wasn’t sure if it’s better to go with older model and less miles or newer model with higher miles.

    I bought an '09 with 3 previous owners last September. It had 114K miles on it and I paid $22.5K. It was, at the time, one of the lowest priced GT500's in the country. It had some bolt-on's and needed some attention to the suspension as it had coil-overs and a bent front right strut, but other than some wear on the front drivers bolster, and having to have the McLeod clutch rebuilt, it was/is in good shape. I have put about 7k miles on it and I am hard on it. No blow-by and the engine pulls hard. I have been slowly adding suspension upgrades the last couple of months, but so far even with that high of mileage, it has been a solid car. 11k miles a year isn't terrible for a daily driven car.
