Default What is a 1990 w/7K miles worth?

So my neighbor has caught the Corvette fever since I bought mine and our other neighbor just did a complete C3 restoration. He knows about a 1990 with 7K miles on it that has been stored indoors the whole time. Got any opinions what it would be worth?

I've been down that road a hundred times. One guy will say its nothing special, just a low mileage car that's worth $5000, the next will say that a Vette with that low miles is worth $10k. My experience has been to just negotiate a price that the buyer and seller can live with. If I were selling it, I'd say $10k all day long, but if I were a buyer, I'd offer $5000 and go from there. At the end of the day, it's worth what you're willing to pay for it.

I hate to see unused vettes like that! Hell I've put almost 7,000 miles on my 90 this year! They are meant to be driven and enjoyed!

Would be curious what he's asking for it!

FWIW, several, low mileage verts (less than 20K miles) have sold in the mid teens on fleabay within the last 6 months. from the limited information the OP gave - color options, transmission, coupe/convertible, etc, etc, etc, giving a price here is damn near impossible. $5K seems low, but if it's a 7k mile, neglected POS, that might be about right. a mint, babied, coupe might fetch $12-14K - who knows??? with no photo's, too many variables and a general, lack of information, pricing this thing is just guessing.

this was bad timing on my part, but within the last year, I let a mint, near perfect 90 vert, (white over red, black top, optional hardtop, 6-speed, and 23K miles on the clock) slip thru my fingers. sold for $12.5K -

(to the OP) if that thing is a vert, white over red, black top, automatic, and somebody's baby - PLEASE PM ME!!!
