    I put a wanted add on Craigslist in my area and someone found this. About a 9 hour drive for me but price seems super steep. Is the escort the new Plymouth SuperBird or what?

    It looks like it's in pretty good condition. Might be a hair high but from the little I saw the price isn't outrageous.

    If you like the car, you can always offer then $1000 and walk away when they don't accept. Seriously a nearly new ZX2 didn't sell for $3000 recently.

    Here in Cali a semi clean escort with a few issues here and there will go for around $1,400.

    The one the OP posted looks very clean hence why I said it wasn't as outrageous as one would think. Granted it's high but I'm sure the seller is bracing for a negotiation so he's setting the price high to have room to negotiate down. My guess is the car sells for $2400.

    I definitely like it but it's an automatic. If it was a stick id be driving down to check it out. It is super clean, here's the link

    if its mint/rust free I can see one paying close to that with the low miles on it.
    but its still on the high side.

    odometer: 61922

    OR is it really 161922 or 261922, or more?

    There is a reason why there is only one picture.

    They added more photos. It does not look to bad given the age of the car.

    True, but $3000 is still grossly overpriced.

    It's $3000 or best offer.

    But if it were identical to your cherished, rusted out first car for example, it would be way cheaper to buy it than restore the rust bucket.

    I have had offers of up to 5200$ to 5000$ and a turbo car that he drove to my house and I told them all no. so I don't thing 3000$ a high price for a LX...mine is a almost mint GT.

    When someone asks $3000 for a $1000 car, you don't make a reasonable offer. You walk away.

    people try to get these prices out of the cars, I'll give 1k maximum, even mint conditions, I only pay a couple hundred above black book value
