Default Craigslist ad in my area... 1998 Bonneville SSEi

They want $3500 for it.

105K miles. I ran the KBB private seller quote on it, and they are saying for a pristine condition car, they are valuing it at $1300-$2800.

Knowing what I know of Bonneville'*, I'd offer $2000 cash.

Knowing what I know about C/H bodies, I am betting they get $3k for it.

Seems like the 92-99 (especially the last few years) have fewer model specific issues than the 2000+ did. You go to 2000+, you are fighting with window regulators, wheel hubs, fuel door rot, etc.

Not even counting the premium a 20 year old rust free car can command in the NE.

I thought the same thing as you until I started browsing CL for 87-91 C/H Bodies up in Detroit.

I dunno, a 20+ year old car with no OEM parts on dealer shelves is a negative point. Granted, there a plenty of hard engine parts due to end-of-production for 3800 parts in 2015ish. But, interior electronics will be hard to find.

"" I'd offer $2000 cash. ""

I'd think you would get it for that price. Might have to wait for the Seller to agree to that price, just not a demand vehicle. My issue would be subframe corrosion. Looks clean in pics, but.......

Even though I know photos can be deceiving, I like how clean in appearance that 98 is. Was that garage stored?
I'd be tempted to go have a look at that Mike, and talk em down the best ya can, if it pans out in great all working condition.

Mike,

If you are looking for a Bonnie, I think this one can be had for about $675 paid in total to Copart. If you like it, I can pick it up and town it to you. Find a replacement door and fix the right rear quarter panel. I do not see signs of rust at the gas filler area. Have to act quickly- auction is tomorrow (I have an account and can bid for you).

Sorry I missed your post Mike. My internet at home has been down since tuesday and I got a new phone at the same time which I couldn't program google authenticator on it, which prevents me from logging in to here.

All is well Mike. I ended up buying it. If for any reason you are in need of one, just let me know. I have not seen it yet, will pickup later this afternoon. It looked clean, I liked that the coolant overflow was clean and orange. I do not like that it was living in NY (possible undercarriage corrosion). Maintenance records show it was new GM dealer maintained.

Thanks, Mike
