i just wanted to get your opinion on this, i was looking in the paper and there was a 1984 honda accord that i was thinking about buying for my younger brother, its got a brand new clutch in it and the interior is in great shape, paint looks good, no scratches, brand new speakers in it, and it has 171 thousand miles on it, they are asking 1350$ for it. do you guys think i can find a better deal??
thats a 21 year old car :banghead: you can find like 92 prelude for 2gs
that is true. but i only have 1500$, and i want to get a good deal, i was just wondering if you think they are asking to much for the car....
hell yea i wouldn't pay not more than $700 :2cents: for that.
84 accord is worth about $500-$700. You can pickup an LX 90-91 Accord for 1500 with around 200k miles.
yeah no kidding...that cars >>way<< overpriced.....try running the numbers on www.kbb.com
i have not checked the blue book on it, but it sounds a bit overpriced to me.
Hmm. interesting how people can start saying a car is "too old." Check KBB
for the price of a '73 Mazda RX3... or the price of an '86 Toyota Corolla
GTS (the AE86). How about a '65 VW Bug (that sold new for $1200). Or even
on my own '81 Fiat 124 Spider...
Here on the east coast, ANY car of the '70s and early '80s that has survived can have a decent street value.
Pfft, look at your list. 73 RX7, 65 Bug, AE86, 81 Fiat? Those are all cars
that people want. We're talking about an average sedan thats older than
most people here and the guy wants $1300 for it? That cars too old for what
hes asking. Check the KBB of an average sedan made in 1984 and see what you
Why not compare 94 Impala SS's KBB to 94 Cavaliers KBB.... :laughing:
Yor'e ringht. No one wanted Accords, and classic versions of them aren't
popular at all... :screwy:
Dude, even basic sedans from then and older are worth silly money here. id' have said teh same as you when someone told me that a '75 granada was worth more than $300, as we could find them all over teh west cosast for that. And most of teh Bugs I bought from teh '60s were bought for under $300, as well. Same $300 Bug over here is $3000, and ive' seen stock '70s Granads hitting $4k here, just because they survived... crazy. A good running Honda anywhere near a grand is a good deal here, regardless of age.
Lets be serious now.... If I wanted to I could'nt find an 84 Accord without
searching hard enough let alone find a group of people or person(s) who
would want an 84 Accord. That may be something somone you know might be
interested in, but here on my side of the fence(same East Coast as yours)
no one I know is particuarly looking for an 84 Accord(or pre 90's). If they
are I can assure you if they are they are not looking to spend $1300 on it
ESPECIALLY when a newer lower mileage Accord can be bought for the same
I'd say more along the lines of $900+ for an Accord that old. Maybe $1300 for a CRX or Civic 3-Door, but not just a plain old Accord.
Good point :laughing:
thats not a bad price for that car. you could maybe find one for $1000 but the new clutch makes up for that.
