Default Thinking of selling my Z,is $30,000 a stretch?







Iíve wanted a C1 for awhile now and to make that happen the Z has to go. I do know the market is still soft but if I could get $30K for the car Iíd sell it,the only thing in the car that doesnít work is the CD player. Cars got 25,000 miles,paints a 9 out of 10. Interior is 100% perfect,not a single mark,scuff anywhere,there is one flaw in the carpet. Paint on the engine very nice, all maintenance done by me,the only time anybody touches this car is for smog and alignment. I love this car but think itís time to move on,cars got HRE wheels but I do have a set of the OEM wheels that I bought new with Goodyearís. You will not find a nicer ZR-1 with 25,000 miles anywhere,this car never sits outside,wonít take it out of the garage if itís too hot out and this car never sits outside in the weather.

No offense but you'd be lucky to get 20-22k. This is coming from a z owner that was in the market for several years before buying one recently. They just aren't bringing the money at the moment.

Yeah, the days of $30K ZR-1's are over and probably won't be seen again in our life time. The collector market is just not embracing these cars and the prices still seem to be falling. Even the low mileage 94-95 aren't getting decent $$.

Sorry Jeff, that 30k is probably a bridge too far. Your car is very nice- nicer than most. I have a 91 ZR! so I "more than casually" pay attention to the market value. I am always surprised at how the car seem to hover just a bit at, or below the 20ish mark. The only ones that see to go above are the true time capsules---- the ones with 500 miles on them,

I'm going to agree with the crowd. Unless you have a museum piece $30,000 is stretching it.

People don't appreciate these car...don't know why.

I don't put a lot of stock into BJ pricing and sales. If there was a pricing "bell curve" the auctions are at the super high end of the spectrum and consequently would be eliminate (along with the super low) to make the average more realiable.

There is a lot that goes into the auctions getting an emotionally charged higher price point... starting with the free beverage tent.

Our world is 20ish.

I agree. For additional reference: 1993 Corvette with 22,000 miles, black on black with a carbon fiber hood (original black hood went with car as well) had an asking price of $25,000 here in Florida. It sat for years unsold. Someone on the forum was looking for a black on black 93 Z, so I ran that one by them. They ended up getting it for less, which honestly even at $25,000 that would be an outstanding deal but just goes to show where these cars are.

I agree that $30K is a bit high.
I just picked up a 100% original '92 White/White (1 of 10) with 18K miles for less than the asking price of $30K.
I did pay more than the average (a bit over $25K), but I couldn't pass it up. It is too nice.

On 1/9/18, a Polo Green 1993 ZR-1 with less than 8,000 miles sold at Mecum for $21,500.
On 6/8/18, A nice burgundy 1990 ZR-1 was bid up to $9,000 at Mecum, and the bidding stopped.
On 10/5/18, A red/red 1992 ZR-1 with 23,286 miles sold at Mecum in Dallas for $17,500. It was listed at no reserve . It looked to be in excellent condition.

I'm noticing C6 Z06's when advertised for low 30's are moving within a few weeks....Low 30's meaning 30K-32K in nice shape with maybe some mods and not that high of mileage..

When people are looking for Vettes a few will pay more money for the newer car.....I agree our circle is small and if a ZR-1 sells for decent money its because the person specifically wanted that car.....Meaning, takes time for the C4Z to find the right buyer....Have to be patient..

Thanks everybody for the info,I do know the market and like I said,$30K would be a stretch for my car. That and dealing with deadbeat tire kickers,no thanks. But I will say this much,I doubt there is a cleaner 91 Z out there anywhere. I donít really drive the car much anymore,too much of a hassle getting it out of the garage so for now it hibernates.

NO. C'mon. Make it easier. Buy a decent one-piece cover so you can uncover and cover it quickly and get it out on the road ! That'll make you change your mind and generate enthusiasm to drive it more often. Corvettes are made to drive hard and as often as possible.

If your implying that I park the car outside for easier access,it ainít gonna happen. The only time this cars ever sat outside overnight is when I would drive it to work,parked right next to the guard station. I got to do something,maybe park the bike in my parents garage over the winter,I need to replace the coolant hoses on the car and I need all the room in that garage.

No. I mean cover it in the garage with a one-piece cover and then put it back in the garage and re-cover it.
A one-piece is easy to get on and off. Making it easier on yourself will give you more motivation to drive it.

I think it will bring $30k if you dont sell it for less...if all owners won't sell for less! The reason the current value may be "undervalued" is because owners are selling low....that's it! If you have a nice example, hold out for top dollar. If everyone would play by these rules we would all benefit 😉

although I might take issue with your claim of "nicest one out there" 😁😁😁
