whats my lightning worth?

I have a 95 white lightning. It has just hit 9000 miles and is in perfect condition. PERFECT. It has not even been wet. Never washed, rained on or even had dew on it. I have a couple of mods, I put a borla catback on it and made sure that the factory exhaust was not harmed in any way. It is wrapped up in plastic in my basement. I put pullies on it and kept the old ones. Like new in a box. I put a hypertech chip in it. It looks totally stock. I am also the original owner and the truck has been babied. It may be for sale soon.

Sounds like a real nice truck. The problem is ther is no real market for a truck like yours so its only worth what someone will give you for it, I would say somewhere in the 8000-15,000 range.

Unless you have to sell it, now is not the time. The prices are about rock bottom right now. With 9000 miles it should be worth $12k-$15k.

i'm an NLOC member...trucks like yours are being sold for $7000-$10,000 average....some do TRY and sell for $12,000-$15,000 but realistically it is a little hard to get that...I was trying to buy a white 94 for $7000 with 90,000 miles but i had to wait..

I don't think $12k-$15k is hard to get for a Lightning with only 9000 miles on it. You were looking at one with 90k miles on it for $7k. So how would $7k-$10k be average? The average Gen 1 does not have just 9k miles on it.

I agree, $12K-15K is about right for a Lightning w/9000 miles as long as the truck is just about perfect. Problem is, no one is going to pay that. I post over on NLOC, the trucks that do sell average $6K-7K, with Hundred something thousand miles. The L's that are in the 30K-60K mile range are about $8500-10K maybe, but are hard to sell unless the right person has enuf $$change$$, and with the economy plus gas prices (I avg. about 10mpg however supercharged) will be hard to do. Just my .02

I would be happy with 15k. The truck has had nothing in the bed but towels to wipe it off with.

Agreed with your idea of $15,000. If it was mine, I'd ask that... but would be happy with offers around $13,000.

FWIW, I bought my 95 with 50K on it for $9,500. Stone stock. I felt happy with that price based on condition of the truck.

I don't think you will have a hard time selling it for $15k. There are not many "New" Gen 1 Lightnings left. You are not selling one with typical mods and miles on it. Gas prices will have nothing to do with the sale. A person looking for a low mile Gen 1 is most likely not going to use it for a daily driver.

I agree with this the problem is that overall car's are not selling.There's a whole bunch of low baller's out there just waiting to get a great deal or steal in my opinion.I have had my 69 Camaro SS 396 up for sale almost 3 month's.I got tons of calls.Just about everyone was a lowballer.I took the car off Autotrader and the next day 3 guy's call me and became so very interested.Asking if I sold the car.Right now mostly everything is hard to get a real market price.I would not sell that Lightning for that low a price unless you really had to.

whats my lightning worth

I do not really have to get rid of it. It is a shame that I do not get to eenjoy it.....ever. I run one tank of gas thru it a year. I change the oil with synthetic every 6 months regardless. I will drive it down to summit truck fest this year in talmadge Ohio. sept.13th. I will put a for sale sign on it but do not expect it to sell. It is amazing how many looks you still get in one of those trucks. F150 farm trucks are plentiful around here.

Your right don't expect it to sell even if its at book value,When Oil recently hit $147 a barrel nobody was buying anything except maybe moped's and scooter's and bicycle's.

If its the price everyone is offering there not low balls, there what the market will bring now. Sure if you hold onto it for 6 months to a year you might find the right idiot to buy it for what your asking. The classic car market has been going crazy for years, and it was only a matter of time before it corrected it self.
