Question type: Shopping & Pricing

red, four door corolla tercel...if i jumped started it, i know it would run again. purchased it with 50,000 miles...i am second owner...it now has 190,000 miles. my brother is a mechanic and has kept it running all these years until i (sometimes think mistakenly) started driving another vehicle. it has been sitting in the gargage for about a year.  i swear this car has a soul. would like to know the value. some rust down passenger side around door and window due to sailboard sitting too long on the roof racks!

thank you for any info

Sadly I doubt you'll get much for it... You'd be better passing it on to family, a cousin turning 16 or something. My geuss is you'd be lucky to get $500, but that's just my instinct... I haven't priced the market for early 80s tercels with 190k.
