Value of 97 superchaged vert?
I'm asking for a friend who wants to know the value or what to expect he can get for it. Thank you for all responses.
This information was taken exactly from an email he sent me on it:
I did back brakes last year, and it probably could use front brakes this year. I put in new spark plugs last year, so you don't have the hassle of changing them for at least 3 years. The car looks exactly stock, only the muffler is just a bit louder, and I mean just a bit louder. I have two other mufflers you can put on. One is the stock muffler, the other is a Hooker muffler, I liked this one the best, it was not as loud as the one on now.
It passes all the pollution tests in Illinois.

Have all receipts for parts, except for supercharger, I cant find it.
I still have all the old parts taken off the car, you also can have. Oil was changed before 3000 miles always. I ordered the car new, and is stored each winter, except for the first year. Car is garaged at both work and home, and was never on the street, even the first year. It is washed every 2 weeks and has never been waxed, I use the Zaino Bros kit.
Car was taken to the 1/4 mile once and ran 14.028, 14.054 and 14.044. This was before the 3 exhaust, catalytic converter, aluminum driveshaft and MSD Stacker ignition.

the short answer is, whatever he can get for it.
it's a tough one because LT1s are pretty cheap, and someone looking for a fast f-body is probably going to go with an LT1 because it would likely be more reliable than a supercharged V6. but, because it's supercharged, he shouldn't have a problem commanding a slight premium over regular V6 prices. my advice would be to get the kelley blue book price, add $2,000 and see if he gets any bites. if he doesn't, then drop the price $1,000 and try again.

I'd tell him to post it on all V6 boards.
www.kbb.com will give you a baseline...... but it is modified... and the general public doesn't want a modified car..... especially a v6.
He would need to find a v6 person to buy it
