I was just pondering over what the general consensus would be on the value of these cars and the different variants. So my question is, if you had a rust free, low km, mint example of the following, what would you expect the price to be.

a)mk1 firefly/sprint/forsa turbo
b)mk2/mk3 swift gt(i)
c)mk2 firefly/sprint turbo (canada)

The reason I thought to post this is because someone asked me what I thought a pristine mk2 sprint turbo would be worth.
I would guess that a forsa turbo is the most rare of them.

Thanks!

Levon

A GT in *MINT* un-molested low KM condition, I'd say between 5k and 8k depending on year and just how low the milage is.

As Grandma used to say, opinions are like noses, most people have one and most of them smell, :shock: :shock: .
also, the true value of any item is whatever a willing buyer and a willing seller agree that the value of that item is.
so with those thoughts in mind I would humbly offer my opinions, or more accurately my guesstimates.

87/88 sprint turbo with around 100k, good glass, not rusty, tranny not jumping gears. I would figure $2500.00 to $3000.00 +/- for a daily driver quality that you wouldn't be ashamed to take out cleaned out on cruise night ( aka condition #3) add up to 2 grand as the miles drop to below 60k and condition improves to #2 and I wouldn't be ashamed to ask the original $10,000.00 MSRP for a pristine showroom example with under 25k miles if one could be found.

mk2 and mk3 swift gt/gti same numbers but add 500.00 for p,windows, and $1000.00 for factory sunroof, and $250.00 for alloy wheels.

Disclaimers, 1) I am a licensed U.S. (Minnesota) Dealer. 2) I am not qualified to comment on non U.S. derivatives of our mark accept to say that all bets are off for cultus cars. and anything with all wheel drive should bring a $1500.00 plus premium. 3) your mileage may vary.

Best wishes, Jonathan

Let the critiques and hate begin.
