Default Looking for a new Fbody

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?

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 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!)
