Ballpark, what would you say a fully optioned Firehawk Formula with less than 500 miles id worth? Still in factory plastic. I recently came across one and was simply curious as to what the value would be with mileage of that figure.

I don't think these cars are quite collectors status yet. Fully optioned is kind of a general description. Do you know if the car is a 1le, auto or manual, and the color. Sounds like an interesting find.

I know it is a 1LE and a 6 speed car. It is a formula, and has all the SLP options that could be ordered. I really want the car, but don't know what they are worth. I have serched and they simply don't seem to find them with this low of milage, and/or they are not selling for the premium prices some are asking.

high 20s tops. I paid $25K for my 2002 Formula Hawk with 9K miles on it, mostly because it is an ultra-rare sunset orange one with a 6-speed (1 of 16 built). Only options on mine were t-tops, chrome wheels, blackwing airbox, and floor mats.

I agree, 25-29k tops. It really comes down to how much you are willing to pay. I think the low miles are only important if you don't plan on driving it. It sounds pretty close to my hawk. What color is it?

how much is this guy asking? depending on the person - it might be worth more to them. it might as well be a brand new car with less than 500 miles on it. i know if i had the money i'd love to have a chance at buying a "brand new" formula firehawk 6spd................. dream car status right there. but that's just me.
I agree a loaded 500 mile 1LE 02 Hawk Formula..
I would die to have that car :)

*looks around to see if his wife is looking* might be willing to give my first born for one of those... ha. kidding. I don't have kids. If I was rich, I would pick it up in a minute.

The only problem with buying that is its only worth paying for it if your not going to drive it at all over the next 20 years. If you buy it and then put even 10k miles on it you my as well have bought one with more miles on it as it will have probably lost its "collector" appeal.

500 miles on it, M6 and still in factory plastic?...damn...link? :D

So its a 6spd, 1LE and has 500 miles on it.....What color? Color determines who collectable it is/will be provided you dont add any more miles on it.

How do you put 500 miles on a car and not disturb the "factory plastic"?? 50 miles I could see, but 8-10 hrs behind the wheel??

If you are absolutely in the market for a NEW Formula, pay right up to the original list price. It would be like time standing still for you so you could buy one. The opportunity may never arise again. Of course get it as cheap as you can, but I wouldn't deny myself a new car for a few grand if your heart is set on it. With the new Camaro coming out (plus hemi Chargers and Challengers) there would be some interesting choices as well, even though your 'new' Formula will be thousands cheaper most likely.
May 2005 a white TA Hawk coupe with 905 miles sold in Cincinnati. It had all options except traction control, CD changer, rear spoiler, and Koni suspension. It did have the Bilstein suspension option. I offered $24k, but it sold for $25.5k to someone else. Hope that helps.
