Mint Condition S14 $20,000?

Anyone seen this?
The price is interesting.
I've seen RX-7's FD3S, go for this much, less even.

Anyway, just food for thought, makes me happy that my S14 is climbing in value.

What do you think? Are we gonna be "classics"? Exceeding 20K?
It definitely looks mint, that's for sure. That sunroof trim.

Do want

These guys are the ultimate cucklords. They had a white zenki for over a year (maybe longer) and when I tried to negotiate with them they were still unwilling to budge. I'm definitely one to 'overpay' for a clean chassis but these guys have been, and probably always will be, fucking morons.

Couple years ago I bought an all original 97 LE with leather interior/sunroof fully loaded with 44,000 original miles.

It was very comfortable, but the most boring car ever. Because I realized after owning it for a week, I can't do anything to it without 'ruining it'. sigh.

Sold it and used the $$ to build an LS 240 instead. 300k on the clock etc... but at least it gets faster every.single.day

That dude in NY can't even get 20K for his Kouki with like 600 original miles.

Anybody who's ever owned a 240 and would pay 20K is an absolute moron.
Although, anybody who's ever owned a 240 in general is an absolute moron anyways.

The prices on S-chassis are retarded for sure.

if you consider aspect of rarity without including the zenki model, its worth more like $20,000-$50,000 a bargain at 20k

However, soon S14 silvia will be legal here. That will dramatically lower value of original s14 chassis IMO, so "we" should not be holding breath for any "mint" bundun american version. ridiculous when a right hand drive beauty will cost less with "similar mileage" (buying new OEM parts to restore the car).

Not all have the same taste. For me in that condition, 1998, white, no sunroof, no spoiler, non leather, less mileage for maybe less than asking price but not 20K.

I mean, what value does this rock have? there are only 5000 of them in the world, and 2500 of them have been smashed, 500 lost, 250 unrecoverable, 125 salvage.

The rock can be worth $999999 if you collect that kind of rock

See it isn't the 240 we see in the 240. Its the car that the 240 canvas can become.

For example 4l80e cars. It no longer can accept sr20/ka24/t-56 without custom mount because to fit a 4l80e you need to cut the canvas. That 240 has been modded to fit only 4l80e transmission.

So now it either is worthless to people who want those engines, Or it has dramatically increased in value to those who want a 4l80e in their S14.

How many RB engine mounts I've seen welded directly onto existing subframes that still take sr20? Those cars are destined to accept a range of engines/transmissions at some cost, now it weighs more, &c

useless if you don't have a pile of RB engines laying around though

Christ. I paid $11,500 for a 97 just like this one, minus the leather, back in 2000. Under 40k miles on it.
I'd might give 13k for this one, because nostalgia...and my unhealthy love of cobalt green.

This makes total sense. The market will soon be opened up to Jap-spec model S14's, making this "deal/bargain" even more of a joke. I mean, you have some mint condition jap cars, with less than 50k miles on them going for less than that imported already.
