Selling price

Asked by Jul 25, 2017 at 04:35 PM about the 2005 Ford Thunderbird 50th Anniversary Edition

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

I have a 2005 50th anniversary edition of the T-Bird
that they made only 1,500 of. I think I'm #69 but
there is a plaque in the glove box. I am the 2nd
owner. Care is in great condition. New tires and
complete inspection and repair of everything
damaged by living out here in Hot AZ!
I have the hardtop in storage. I think it may be time
to let it go, but as a single woman, I don't want to
get ripped off by a car dealership.
I'm in bankruptcy so they won't give me financing
I want to do a swap for a small SUV
Do you think the dealerships will play fair? Or
should I sell it outright??

You asked this question before. Trading it in will not get you a very good price. Check values of similar cars on Hemming's Motor news. Without knowing more about your car it is probably worth around $20-30,000.

Take it to a dealer or two and see what they offer. Since they are in business they have to offer you less than a private buyer would pay. You could also try a classic car consignment shop.

I know I asked this question before. I was hoping to get more replies!!
