    I’m in the market to finally pull the trigger on grabbing a Terminator! As the title states I’m looking specifically for a very low mileage gray convertible with very little modding, who’s thinking of letting one go?

    Would also consider a competition Orange hard top with under 10,000 miles!

    Freehold ford in N.J. has a DSG vert w/ 6700 miles. I went to see it this summer- just didn’t want to spend $30k.
    I think their numbers gonna be $28ish( they will tell you) as they’ve been asking 35k for 9 months. and recently had it on eBay and it didn’t meet reserve but was bit to high 27’s.
    Asking about 31 now.
    It’s a collector quality car imo- does have front plate holder and Mustang rear bumper wave but the bottom of this car is unbelievably clean. Remarkable.
    Does have s scratch on drivers bolster and something about the dr. Side front fender doesn’t quite line up- I mentioned it and was attacked by the salesman, but... whatever.
    Just my 2 cents.
    It’s out there. I saw it. If I was comfortable spending $28 ish, Id buy it or buy the one here from Redfire Rocket ( a one owner car).
    Good luck!

    I saw that one, was leery of it because it’s price seems lower than what other dealerships are asking was thinking something is going on that they’re not telling, but it’s on the radar.

    Did you start it or drive it?

    I did not start it or drive it.
    It's in the showroom. and I didn't feel like I was serious enough on that particular day to ask them to pull it out.
    Full disclosure- I'm a car guy , but not an expert on cars.
    I had a friend with me who has owned half a dozen Terminators and is the original owner of the only Satin Silver Saleen Terminator vert made in 2003- we were all over and under that car for more than an hour- literally. If I were serious about the car, I was going to spend $500 to have it dissected by a true expert, but the one thing that bothered me was the drivers side front fender not lining up perfectly ( no, not the usual misalignment), and the rubber seal on the drivers side top windshield frame seemed slightly pinched( more than the other side)- These are production cars, and I'm picking it apart like it's handmade, but to me, these things count for something. We checked the entire left front and didn't see any sign of repair, and the paint doesn't look mismatched or repainted in any way- we didn't have a gauge btw.
    It looks entirely as new, but maybe a "Monday Morning fender alignment"? Before I reined myself back in,I was going to try to buy the car.......
    Pricing- They were asking $34,995 until 2 weeks ago ( they first listed it in Dec. 2018)
    I've been looking at these things for a year, and half of them are still for sale from 6-8 months ago.
    I think ( except CO maybe), top dollar for these cars like this one is $26-27ish. People asking $30+ will have their cars all winter imo. They're just not there yet. That's my take.Good Luck!!!!

    I’m looking at it today. They have it priced on Facebook at 29995. They sent me a lot of pics under the car. I briefly looked at it last night. Looked clean. Saw one rock chip on front of hood I believe. There is some sort of scratch or tear that was glued (or not) on driver seat bolster. I’m no expert on the glue part but that’s how they fixed my leather furniture. I’ll have to look better at it today as I had just stopped by quickly yesterday at closing time. I asked about pricing and they told me that’s the lowest they will go. (We shall see) The car belongs to the General Manager supposedly. I spoke with him last night for a little bit. I really didn’t look at the fender but I will today.

    One thing I hate is the front bumper is drilled and the car dealership sticker is on it. But both are from the original dealer as the front mounting plate holder is listed on original window sticker which they have

    Salesman told me it was the owner's car- whatever...
    I thought license plate brackets came with all of them- in the trunk( not sure and doesn't matter).
    Yeah, that bothers me too- alot. But no reason to not buy it- deduct $1000 to have the bumper repaired by a top notch shop, lol.
    I think it probably got drilled for it's time in Maine- NC doesn't have a front plate.
    Anyway, I think the seat bolster got damaged - looks like someone got into the car with a pen or a screwdriver in their pocket.
    Anyway, Good Luck!! Let is know- It's a sweet ride.

    Could be. The GM is the owners son so who knows. It’s registered to the dealership.

    Just in case you decide you don’t have to have less than 10k miles. This one has 29k Image1569020207.674692.jpg
