I am getting ready to sell my Blue and White. It is a very clean car with 27k miles on it. It has had some small prior damage in the right rear but does have a clean title. I know the market is funny now and I am going to be looking for a fast sale. What is a guy to ask?

How small is "small damage"?
Would a carfax show the small damage on it?

Assuming the damage is fixed properly, no frame damage, and no mods...I would say you should ask $45K for a quick sale. It could be worth more if you waited till the spring. Can't you keep and sell a kidney or lung...:omg: :D

Car fax will show. I just replaced the rear quarter, wheel, valance, and glass. I have drove the car for 10k miles after and have not had any issues. Looks great too.

I would sell a kidny or lung but I need the garage space. Have 3 Vipers in there now and a 4th on the way. Wife would like to park in there this winter.

Im going to say 40K quickly because of miles and damage, but 45K if you are willing to wait till spring since the B/W seems to hold value pretty well. Im actually going to put my GTS up for sale next week, so I have been watching the classifieds for a month now trying to decide where to price mine, although Im not in a hurry. Being in a hurry could cost you about 5K.

Post pictures of the car. Post pictures of the wife (along with a list of any mods). Open bidding for both. See what happens. You may be able to keep the Viper afterall!

It would be worth 45K easy without the damage report, that's going to hurt you some.

There are essentially two different types of Vipers for sale... Vipers that are "For Sale," and Vipers that people actually want to sell. When I looked for my Viper a few months ago, I was able to find 4 GTS's in the midwest with comparable miles for the high $30K's. That said, the B/W color does add some value, but I'd still say $39K for a quick sale.

At $39K it should/would be gone quick. That is a great deal for the buyer. $43K should move it in about a 10 week period. But you could possibly get more.

97' B/W GTS's brings the most money, I'd say close to $50K if your example was near mint with no stories...however, becuase of the documented damage...~$44K.

Sounds like you're overflowing with Vipers?
You must have some pretty special ones if you're dumping a B/W Gts.

I love that school bus yellow with the white stripes BTW.
