Price reflects quality and mileage (116K). Always a toy never a daily driver. Never in snow, clean throughout. Great color combination in catalog colors. Final year, Northstar V8 with 295 horsepower and 300 pounds of torque. Fast, fun, comfortable, reliable, and stylish. I was putting gas in it and the guy at the pump next to me thought it was a new Cadillac model, so that speaks to how well the styling has aged. Usual signs of age and use inside, but nothing broken or ruined. Everything works including full digital gauge cluster and trip computer, A/C blows cold, windows, seats, antenna all work properly. Recent Michelin radials. No hardtop, don't ask, I don't know where to find one. Please don't hassle me about all the little esoteric things endemic to these cars, I don't know if they've been fixed and I'm not going to worry about it on a $9900 car. The car is cheap, runs great, looks great, and needs nothing as it sits today. I can't understand why these aren't more valuable, but if you want low-maintenance fast fun for the summer, this is a good choice that's also eligible for AACA events. $9900.

Correction - 1st year NorthStar, not final.

 

I'm not wrong. 1993 was the final year of the Allante. It was the only year they put a Northstar in the Allante. Therefore it was the final year of the Northstar in the Allante. The fact that it was also the first and only year of the Northstar in the Allante is merely semantics.

My apologies, I did not see the comma between final year and NorthStar.   I will add that should a person purchase an Allante, 1992 and 1993 are the best years. I believe 1993 has superior braking system over older models.

As long as the head gaskets are ok the NorthStar is the better engine than the 1992 4.5. The best thing about the 93's is that they no longer have the hard as rock Recaro seats!

"Hard as a rock Recaro seats."  I loved my 92, including the looks of the seats.  Now as for comfort, they simply did not cut the mustard!

Fire sale on this one. $7900 and it's ready to go. Nice car, everything works, needs nothing. 7900 bucks. Where else can you get a handsome 2-seat convertible with all the creature comforts and 300 horsepower for $7900?

 

Ready to go right now.

They were crappy for comfort and higher cost. German. The above 93 has the same seats as the the 93 Eldorado.  Lower cost, more comfortable. No Recaro is far better.
