No response so would appreciate advice. Is price too high ? If so what would it sell for ? May just decide to keep it and take to shows.

I think the price is fair, however it is the end of the year for most of the country. Also you are "selling to the choir" so it might be a slower sell. Looks like a great car.

Appreciate it. Should mention that with the end of 90F/90% summer, convertible weather is back. May take to the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona and see what happens.

I think you are priced in the ballpark and you have a great looking car but you are facing what all of us Reatta owners are facing when trying to sell. Although our cars are ~30 years old they don't fit in with the antique car crowd, and even though we have great looking cars, they don't fit in with any of the sports car, muscle car or exotic car groups.  The bottom line is our cars are so unique they don't fit the mold of what most buyers are looking for.

 

It takes a special buyer to want a Reatta. If you live where there are a lot of other Reattas it might be a different story but around here the Reatta is a rare bird..

I agree with Ronnie. Your price is reasonable but it does take a different type of buyer for a Reatta. I’ve seen that very few people know what they are by the amount of “what’s that” I get. There’s a few cars by me that have been on and off Craigslist for at least six months now so I don’t think it’s too uncommon to wait a while. There are a few other 90verts for sale on Craigslist in Florida, I know the Maui blue one has been on for a couple months.

Thank you. Just have too many cars and two convertibles worth about the same. Other is a very nice '01 SLK320 with 70k miles in a medium Blue with a number of updates (Bluetooth, projector headlamps, Windrestrictor, sheepskin). Have decided to sell one but both are keepable so will sell the firstthat someone shows up with cash and keep the other.

Have seen multiple very nice examples with less miles sell recently for between $4500-$5500, yours is a well sorted out one as we know from the forum, but buyers see the lower mileage ones and go for those.  Wheels are also something that can either attract a buyer or turn a buyer off, depends if they are looking for stock and if not, if they like the style you have.   Oddly, I have seen less love for blue interior on the white convertibles.  There is also a good supply of nice convertibles on the market so you just need to find that person that likes what you have done to yours.  BTW, the navy top looks great.

Have looked at others and most either have a failed AC or need a top. Have decided to drop the price to $6750 and if it does not sell for that will just keep it and clean out the garage.

 

ps I do have an original set of wheels and caps but have always thought they were too small for the car.

OK so maybe you don't like the Snowflakes so have put on some 17" Minilite Clones. Have on CL for $5900 but will take $5750 from forum member. Still 109K miles, not driving much. Springtime & DST is nigh.

 

Cold AC, AGM, Hartz top with rear heated glass.

Well the first to show up with cash can have their choice of wheels/tires. It is easy to swap.

I would put the original Reatta rims and tires on your Reatta for sale.  They go with the car either way, as I understand.  Many of us have non OEM wheelsets and Ronnie's are the best looking IMO. But - when I do aggressive market searches for Reattas I always look for original Reatta wheels on the car.  I don't know, but wouldn't one of your potential buyers be a snowbird who maybe doesn't want to spend $20,000 on a 'fun' convertible while in Florida? 

 

I had my 1990 Driftwood convertible for sale for $4000 to $4500 with no interest.  It has 110,000 miles and a lot of work already done to it. Therefore, for me, I am likely going to keep driving and enjoying it another season and drop the price to $3700 next fall.  I love driving my car in the fall, best time in Iowa to drive top down.  I also am not putting many miles on the car, maybe 500 a year.

Would except the stock wheels have not had tires on them for at least a decade. Now if someone wanted make a deposit &  buy that way I could arranger for a set of decent 215x65x15s but do not have at moment.

 

ps have the silver Enkies shown on my blue coupe in the sig but those Michelins are from the early years of the millenia.
