View Full Version : Looking for a new Fbody

10-22-2006, 08:03 PM
Well, after my accident, I decided it was time to upgrade to an LS1. I am getting the V6 fixed and plan to sell it after the repairs. I hope I can get $6000 out of it (has a W title, so I'm limited in sale). However, it only has 67,000 miles. I want to purchase a 1998 SS M6. I found one for $6500 with 116,000 miles. It looks like it is in good shape and had a female owner. Should I keep looking or is that a good deal?

i say get it as long as you make sure everything is working properly...i bought mine with high mileage and it has been great!

post up some pics if you get it, or whenever you get something!

Sounds like a pretty good price. I'm not a fan of buying a car with high mileage like that but the price doesn't seem terrible for an SS.

sounds to good to be true..what does w title mean? salvaged? You should sell your car before you set a price on a new one.

I bought mine with 104K and I have 121K on it now after a year and a half. The only problem I've had is 2 sets of Rear tires going bald :nod: and my fuel pump quit after 3 weeks of having it.

If it's a legitimate SS in good physical & mechanical shape, then I say go for it. The price is right, and higher mileage isn't as bad as it used to be....mine's got 127,000 on it, and I still beat on it regularly :)

Yea, don't sweat the higher milage, I had 135k on mine before the new motor (the motor was in great condition when it was removed, compression tests were also on par with GM standards, I just happen to be the 1 person whos 98 f-body block leaked through pores!)
