Generally speaking, when it comes to fair market value, it goes something like this...

85 GT, hardtop, 5-speed, 63k miles, excellent, $6500...

(Note: Automatics can be 10% to 20% cheaper)

If you want one even nicer, with lets say 30k miles, it's going to cost you closer to $8000. This is a general benchmark for stock cars. The 85's and 86's are comparable in price. These are nice cars with real prices, not some dreamer asking $12,000 for a 50k mile car that has been on AutoTrader for the past 18 months or some idiot asking $6000 for a piece of junk.

When it comes to ones that are modified, that changes everything, because it depends on the amount of modifications, type of modifications, and the professionalism in which they were installed. This can only be measured on a car by car basis.

Forget NADA, forget KBB, forget Appraisals, forget Crackheads... this is the real deal.
