What's my 98 gt convertible worth

t's completely stock. Clean as can be with 88,000 miles. Nothing is wrong with it at all. No scratches and the tan leather interior is flawless. I paid $4,100

Depends on the area. I could buy something like that for about 2-2,500 bucks around me. Could be much higher in other areas, but they are a dime a dozen in SC. Just check out what they are actually selling for in your area vs what people are asking, which most people ask too much. But a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

Additionally while they are super cheap, there is always that stupid person. I've seen cragslist ads here for 94-98 gts that are bone stock with 150k+ miles in rough shape that people have listed at over 10 grand.

Have you checked on line with Kelly Blue Book and NADA? You enter your zip code for each of them and they will make regional price adjustments.
That's nice low miles (which both will take into account) and if interior and exterior are as nice as you say, they also have an "excellent" condition tab you can check that adds value to the vehicle. Check both KBB and NADA, and advertise it for the higher price of the two. Have a print out of your results in hand when someone comes to look at it.
A lot may depend on the color of your car as well. Black, bright yellow, bright green -- sometimes can be tough to find the right person. There's a reason they call red --- "resale red!"

Yeah I'm up in Michigan so it's harder to find super clean no rust stock gt convertibles. I'm thinking bout selling it in spring. Can't get over the fact that it's an automatic. Was thinking bout a pi swap and some 4.10 gears and maybe it will be enough fun where I don't care that it's an auto

You'll still care !!! I've had stick Mustangs for the past 10 - 15 years. I bought a 2014 GT Auto in April. Wish I would have stuck to my guns on buying a stick. I know the Auto is faster but I don't get 100% satisfaction driving this car like I did a stick.

My current GT is my first automatic vehicle. I don't even think about it anymore. With the new shift points in the tune it's a blast to drive. I guess as I'm getting older it just doesn't bother me. Besides, both of my motorcycles give me the chance to have some clutch action if I so desire.

Maybe once I get a tune it will be better. My car also has the paddle shifters so I can shift manually too. But there's still no clutch to pop which to me makes driving fun instead of boring.

The tune makes a huge difference. Much more so than on it did on my 5 speeds.

Now you're just bragging.

As soon as I get tires on my car, and the cats removed we are going to hit the track to see what is quicker: auto vs manual.

We may have to go back to the 1/8 mile marker and pick my trans up after I rip it out trying to outshift you.
