Default Holy Best resale value Evar!!! $5500 for a 1984?

I was scanning through Autotrader.com for a beater GL wagon and was shocked to see this! A 1984 Subaru in New England in better shape than my 2004...

Amazing...

oh that's nice. not worth more than $1800. It's FWD with next to no options. It may be rare, but the buyer to pay that price is far rarer.

I have that identical car with less miles on it and mine is stick. i wouldn't ask that much for mine but i guarantee it would be more than book.

BTW, mine is just about as nice. I was going to sell it for $3500 but I decided not to now....and yes I did have a buyer at $3500

These cars are going to be one of the next modern classics...

A sedan and an automatic? Maybe if it was a wagon and a manual... maybe.

at the "RARE VEHICLE" So what? It's just an old Subaru, not a Ferrari. Nobody in their right mind is going to buy that car because its rare. I agree not worth over $1800.

I used to have that same body style. GL10 with a digital dash and a lugage rack on the trunk. Mine wasn't quite that nice though. I drove it for a while, sold it, bought it back drove it some more then sold it to my Dad. He sold it with over 400,000 miles on it and it still ran just fine, passed DEQ also.

Looks like a $500 car to me. An underpowered Subaru (72HP) likely without AC. It likely will run like garbage once the junk Hitachi carb goes out of adjustment. Good luck to the next owner finding someone to work on that carb (JUNK!).

It's over 20 years old. In most states, that's considered a 'classic'. 25 years old, and it would be an 'antique'.

In that condition, someone may just buy it.

Actually if you look at the pics it does have a/c and you are wrong it is a Carter/webber carb in them. I not saying that it is better...think of it as a different kind of junk

So what? I had an 80 and an 84 Subaru. No power anything, including not much power from the engine, no airbags, no ABS, carburetor, pushrods, etc. They were good cars at the time but by modern standards they are both uncomfortable and unsafe. Even if it was completely mint from the factory it wouldn't be worth more than 3 or 4k.

Your opinion...but like I said I also think $5500 is a bit much. Give it a few years and you'll see.

I could see that selling for 4,500-5k depending on the buyer. It is in really good shape. It could use a little cleaning of the seats, a little zymol, and a car cover, but other than that...just oil changes and regular matainence and it will run for a really long time. Def. looks like a granny car, granny that loved her little black subaru!
