Well, since it only has 40 miles on it, I don't think it not being registed would add any value, but might help make the sale. My first quesiton would be, why someone bought it and never drove and enjoyed it?


Some people don't realize that ALL cars are essentially depreciating assets.


check the kelly blue book ,that will give you the value with the options the car has and being that its low mileage is always a plus. being that it was never driven also brings problems, any rubber seals and the belts will most likely be cracked and dry rotted,all the hoses, seals on the engine and tranny are dried up and once the car is active things will start leaking. depending where the car was kept. pretty amazing the car was never on the road .
