I have a friend who bought a brand new fully loaded 96 Caprice, drove it home put it in his garage and covered it up, starts it up now and then, drives it around the block and puts it back in the garage. Black with 89 original miles on it and now he's retired and could use some money for some bills. Anyone have a good guess what he can get for it? I mentioned he might want to put this info on a national police association message board, Caprices were very popular with law enforcement back then. He's going to drive it down to my shop tomorrow so I can take plenty of photos, so it'll have about 95 miles on it when he puts it back in the garage.

Realistically? Low to mid-20k range if he wants to sell it without having to market it forever.

Put it on the various 1994-96 Impala SS forums.

Not too sure how relevant this will be but about this time last year I encountered a young (at least to me) fellow who had just purchased a 95 metallic cherry red SS in Greensboro, NC. He bought it from the original owner and thru the selling dealership, that had just gone thru the car. Can't remember all that was done but seems like tires, brake pads, radiator/heater hoses, accessory belts, fluids, etc had all been replaced (and he had all receipts, original sales documents, etc). Vehicle had always been kept in a climate controlled garage, never driven in bad weather, no collisions, etc. Mileage was in the mid thirties and he paid a little less than $10,000 for it.

The car looked like it had just come off the sales floor and I was wishing that I could have stumbled onto it (and had a spare ten grand or so). My point, if I have one (and if other nice low mileage SS are out there), is how much is one willing to pay extra for a zero mileage car as opposed to what many of us would call a low mileage car? Personally, its not really the price of the car as it is my ability to pamper it (no more room) and for the range that Mike has suggested I might be asking Dave for some contact info (just wish it were green).

If anything, and if he has a few months (as Mike noted), I would suggest that Dave's buddy start out in the mid thirties and maybe even high thirties (you can always come down but can never go up). There could be folks looking for that car and can pay for it (look at the auctions). In my example above the buyer fell in love with the SS when he was in high school and could not afford an oil change - he is now an IT guy for a major wireless network and the price no longer an issue (and it was not to be his DD or yard candy). I would also suggest that he advertise it thru Hemming's. This is just the kind of car that could show up on their online "Find Of The Day" (one of today's finds is a 92 Roadmaster (also a B body) with 134,000 miles for $8,500. A <100 mile Impala SS would definitely draw some attention and likely some interesting comments. Regards, Don
