What do YOU think it's worth?
Question: I'm wanting to buy my Grandpa's Ranger off him. He doesn't know what it's worth, and I looked at bluebook and it said it's worth about $850 and I was going to offer him $1,000. Anyway, I'll list the pro's and con's and details and I want you to tell me what you think it's worth. I'm still going to offer $1,000 if you think it's worth less than that, I just want to know if $1,000 is too low though.... 1994 Ford Ranger Pro's Cold and Hot air work fine Cassette player (Back in the day it added value, don't know about now....) Radio Works fine Con's Tires are bald Interior is faded Fuel gauge and temp gauge are broken Steering needs realigned badly Rear view mirror needs glued back on Armrest is broken Other details 147,xxx miles on it. I helped him replace the left brake caliper, meaning the right one is likely to go out soon. The body is in great condition. However, the bed has a bunch of paint peeled and rust where the paint has peeled. There is some rust on the side mirrors. The tailgate has a small slice from where my Grandpa was cutting something with a saw and went into the tailgate. Windows are crank (which I prefer), but the driver side crank is about to come off. I was having trouble with turning the air/heat off when I hauled his trash for him. I had it set to off but it kept blowing. 4 liter engine with a Manual Transmission ( which I prefer straight shifts) My Uncle was the original owner, and he smoked a little in it. Needs new windshield wipers.

I hate to say but you will end up spending a lot of money for repair and replacament after you purchasing car from him. If I were you I wouldn't buy it. Based on the list of the condition you wrote this car is far less than $850. Because Blue Book Value's listing price is assuming that the car is in decent or good shape. Your Granpa's car seems like need a lot of replacement and repairs.
Old 1156 I7 with 8gb of ram no discrete video card? I can't see it going for much more than $600, maybe more since you're throwing in the monitor.
For 1,000 thats not a good deal. If it has a mvi then yes, it is. But if not no. Id offer him the 800-850.. or ask him first what he wants. Persionally i would only buy this for about 400 cdn.
Has a old video card, 9800 GTX is old... pretty good when it came out back in the day but that was back in the day. First lie is that that picture is a 9800 GT NOT a 9800 GTX, I'm curious which one it is now. Either way their both old. As someone stated before doesn't really say the processor yeah its quad core blah blah blah I want exact numbers in GHz. Seems weird why he didn't post it, that's the first thing to mention if your going to call it a gaming PC. Memory is an old type, DDR2 is old everything is DDR3 now. I'm surprised he even mention that it can go up to 16 GB, no one is even going to need more than 6 GB realistically unless you have a specific job that requires you to edit large videos and Photoshop pictures. That guy is lying to you about the 300 GB Western Digital VelociRaptor harddrive, its not $200 its $150, and here it is. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as... Wow another lie, VelociRaptor harddrive does NOT boot faster than a SSD (Solid State Drive) maybe if he had two VelociRaptor in RAID 0 but he doesn't. Bid deal about "ADOBE MASTER COLLECTION CS5" and that's its legal and fully licensed. Bootleg version works the same, so unless you plan on using it for business Abobe is never going to sue you. You can download cracked versions of those for free on the internet. I can't comment on having Mac OS X since I don't know anything about Mac. But having a duel boot OS system is cool but by no means is it anything new. Finally last lie, all the pictures are taken from different websites, those are not screenshots of his doing. So I wouldn''t trust that those pictures consider his PC didn't take those screenshots. Because they are all linked to other sites, that have nothing to do with uploading your own picture. The only thing going for it right now is the WD 300 GB VelociRaptor harddrive, even though those are slowly being phased out for western digital new VelociRaptor hardrives. And Windows 7 Ultimate Edition assuming of course that it has a legit CD-Key, with legit CD's. $450 is way to much, with all the lies I pointed out you can definitely drop the price. It's not a bad PC, I just would not call it gaming by any means, if I was buying it my top offer would be $250 assuming Windows 7 Ultimate is legit and with a legit CD-Key, if not than $200-175. Don't forget to haggle, and remember any bootleg version of software he has has zero value since anyone can just download it for free from the internet. If he claims legit than ask for proof such as CD-Keys, especially since he says it has "LOTS OF NEW GAMES". Good Luck.
Offering $1000.00 is very generous considering all the wok the vehicle needs. It is your decision to make. Best Wishes and Enjoy your vehicle.
If this were my computer, I'd sell it at the follow price: Aliven570SLi-eSATAII = $60 AMD 9950 = $100-$110 Arctic cooler freezer = $20 4GB DDR2 800Mhz = Depends on the brand, but $35-45 2 Geforce 9800 GTX's 512 mb = $220, $110/pc 2x 320 GB HDDs = $60, $30/pc 650 W PSU = Heavily depends on brand, hard to say Case = $50 Monitor = $100 if it's LCD, $50 for a CRT Laser mouse = $35 Eclipse II = $35 Total = $735 I'd sell @ $750 to $775 for the whole thing, unless you have a robust PSU, then you could push it to $800.
