I have been hounding this lady for like 10 years about her 86 mcss with t tops and 5000 miles (5K not 50K).

She seems to be warming up to the idea of selling it FINALLY.

The only problem is that now I am not into the monte ss any more.

What would anybody be willing to pay for such a car?

All I know is that it has t tops.

It is not an aero.

I have seen this car (rarely) since the day it was new.

It is a one owner car and never driven in salt or snow or rain.

The lady lives very close to me so I catch a glance of it once in a while when she has the garage door open (cover on).

What I am thinking is to either buy and sell it or tip somebody to it for a finders fee.

But she has never even considered talking about selling it thus we've never talked price.

Her husband owned this car until his death in 1992. He also owned an awesome 1970 chevelle ss with ultra low mileage that she has already sold.

At auctions many buyers bid up to $15,000 (sometimes more) for non-Aero sub 20,000 miles cars. I have documented many sales over the years. That's provided the MCSS is truly excellent. If the paint has issues or any other 'problems' then of course the price would be affected. Here is a link from last Christmas with some prices. Just ignore the Aerocoupes which tend to go for a little more.

You're welcome!
If you are able to follow any further activity with this car please post for us. It's interesting to say the least. Not many 5,000 miles MCSS in existence.

Funny I just saw this thread. Drove down to the beach where meets are held every sunday morning as long as there isn't snow/salt/sand or crap on the ground. I pull up with my 43,000 mile '85 MCSS and park alongside a blue /gray (forgot the correct color name)'84 MCSS that is immaculate. A little old guy runs up to me and starts chatting. I ask him how many miles are on his car and he tells me 5,000. I often wonder how much enjoyment you can get out of doing something like that. He tells me his kids are waiting for him top kick the bucket so they can get their hands on it.

Raress9596, that's pretty bad. Vultures circling. Must have been a fun car to see though.
79 mc, That's about all you are doing when you have just 5,000 miles on a 25+ year old car. I just take mine to shows 90% of the time and the miles still add up. Even just 500 miles per year should have our MCSS cars up to 13,000 miles or so. That is really minimal driving too.

OK here is an update. I will be looking at the car this coming Tuesday. If I buy it I will be selling it for 12,000 firm. She will not deal with anybody else on this car. If you might be interested in this car pm me or just post on this forum. I will be getting pictures Tuesday.

I'll make it easy, if you get an immaculate 5K mile car I will be very interested in it. PM me when you have it along with detailed pictures of the under carriage body and interior. A list of options also please.

If it's a bench seat car I'm out.

Ron.


Enjoy life, family first!
