I'd guess $12k based on some browsing I was doing a few weeks back. I was pricing mine (everything same as your description except mine has 54k) because I was investigating the new LTZ. Seeing it has a 6 speed auto and a 300 HP V6 I was thinking about upgrading.

Mostmint smack yourself with that "upgrade" comment. Then line em up and we'll see about your "upgrade".

Private, yeah $14k but I'd still say up to $15k as a start. Especially if it's been taken care of and is in good condition/very clean.

Tranny aside, that IS NOT an upgrade.

Apparently neither of you consider less weight on the front and the same HP to be an upgrade. Should help with handling! I know there is less torque but the six speed should help with that some.

Very true. There was a 2006-09 Impala SS on a Ford dealership lot near me recently that was there for a good 2+ months. Don't know what they were asking for it, but it sat there quite a while. These W Body SS's usually go fast too, at least I know the Montes do.

It's not the same horsepower. Max power on the v6 is achieved at 100 rpms below redline. Where as I'm at max torque at 4k. Not an upgrade <insert foot in mouth and end thread>
