Default What is this Camry worth?

Newbie to Toyotas, this country, everything. I have been offered the
following Camry for purchase: 1992, 4 door, 4 cyl, 5 spd manual, cd
changer, 160K miles. Spent its life in Minnesota/Wisonsin, but no
visible rust.

Negatives: Had a dent on hood which has been repaired and you can see
the mismatched paint.

Positives: New radiator, ac compressor, battery, alternator, tires.

Seems to run fine.

What is this car worth? I.e., how much should I offer, how much should
I be prepared to pay?

$1,500 at the most.

you can check prices at www.autotrader.com

Select Make, model, year, engine, etc. and you'll get several lists
depending on the area you're at.

I've seen a '94 advertised at $3400. I wouldn't sell my '86 (72,000 miles
and impeccibly maintained) for less than $2800.
BTW, where are you from?

Does it have complete maintenance records that you can review?
Best determinant of what kind of a car you're getting is how it has been serviced.

Well, he offered me the receipts for all the recent new-parts purchases
because they might be needed for warranty purposses. I haven't asked if
he has proof of oil changes and like, but I have no reason to doubt
that they were done.

Have a mechanic that knows camrys look at it, do a compression test ,
ck plug condition, and pull the valve covers.
You can tell alot with tests and looks.

www.NADA.com will give you pricing to start with. Keep in mind that
"Retail" price is only for cars being sold at the dealership or
private sellers whose cars are immaculate and well maintained. Check
others in your area too and see what they're going for.
