How much is the value of a 1987 civic 2 door hatchback?

Asked by Mar 20, 2012 at 10:28 PM about the 1987 Honda Civic DX Hatchback

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Here's the car in question. How much is it worth? It looks great, has good millage for how old it is, but
the price is quite steep. Obviously, the guy is looking to make some money. Still, this is a 25 year old
car, after all. I'm copying the guy's ad, so you can get an idea. Please, help!
