I guess these don't qualify as drive train mods...
Ah ha...I now see why you got such a high valuation. The person that appraised your car added on the value of all your mods to the actual value of your car so that they would all be covered under insurance. So, the number you have is the insured value of your car with mods...and not the actual value of the car.

If you were to take the same car to sell, all of those mods would subtract from its value to a collector.

Like I said... Your the expert... If you do your research on my contacts at Ford that I pm'd you you might be surprised... (Bud Magaldi and Mike Zevalkink)

I too am bored with the ignorance, do your research you seem to be a intelligent person... BTW I have every part that come off both of my Stangs to return them to stock form... For collect ability purposes.

Finally!!! A stock GTS in the condition of mine would typically appraise at 15-20K...

Re: GTS

Sorry, but that's still not $20k in mods. Keep dreaming. My $10k estimate on the value of the car was including the mods. The car itself is worth probably $6k. Hate to break it to you, but the GTS is not a highly sought after collector's car. So it's definitely not $26k worth of mods.

If you were able to convince the appraiser that strapping a Kenne Belle on a 95 Mustang makes it worth $32k... you should really get into sales.

Re: GTS

^^^ I Think they took the retail value of each mod brand new and possibly the labor to install it into account...THe KB alone is a 4 or 5k kit I believe.

I really need to get my car appraised then. I would just hate for anything "unplanned" to happen to it right after I get the insurance on it...

I'm surprised to hear that they will take labor into account. I guess since I did all the labor on my car myself... I could make a killing.

Re: GTS

the higher apprasial make more since now that we actually know the car is modified (great info to include not something to simply not mention)

when it comes to modifying a car they most always never add value to a vehicle, by modifying the vehicle you generally hurt the value of the car in the eye's of a collector, thats just the nature of it.

About the only time modifications add value to a car is if an enthusiast is buying it and is willing to pay a little extra for the modifications already on it. In your case it will make the car worth more as the mods are tastefully done and the car is in really good condition.

How much more? Well its not dollar for dollar what the modifications cost and it does not include labor. It seems most aftermarket modifications that a buyer wants will bring about 25-50% of the original cost but it all just depends~ some buyers wont pay extra or much extra they just assume its a bonus to buying your car.

As cars get older and older the value of modifications start to level out more than say on a brand new car~ but its still a crap shoot, you dont modify a car to add value to it 99% of the time (im not talking about custom builds or frame up stuff etc)

if you can get 30k or even 25k for that car i would jump on it, I would think 15k would be a really good deal with mods, maybe a touch more but its all in how much the buyer wants it and how much they can pay

you have to remember that a car that old the bank's value on it is very very low so they will have to have cash with is harder and harder to come by for people.

Due to his appraisal he worked a deal with the insurance to value the car at $31900. He pays the extra premium cost for the 32K value so that in the case his vehicle becomes a total loss he will be paid the full $32,000 for the vehicle.

Re: GTS

yea you can add mods to the insurance so when something happens you get the money for it, I need to do this for my wheels and mods for example~ but it wont sell for that much just a way to cover you if something happens to the car
