What are your thoughts on what I can get for the below...honestly I know my bottom line price so don't be bashful...
Below is the list of things I have had done to the car in the last few months.
Transmission Fluid Change
Differential Fluid Change
Brake Fluid Change
Clutch Fluid Change
Jeff Lemke updated 3 Piece trunktop - rare and hard to come by top that is rated to over 180pmh.
New window tint
Changed wheels and tires - upgraded to 2010 model rims and tires.
Side Exhaust Cut out - (all Gen 2 Vipers had rear exit...I had this custom made to side exit...looks amazing!)
TNT headers - no longer made and hard to find (best torque providing headers on the market)
high flow cats
Upgraded stereo receiver, speakers and amp - bluetooth audio and handsfree telephone answering and calling.
Upgraded drilled and slotted rotors and pads
upgrade to aluminum flywheel - allows the engine to spin up quicker and the Viper to pull quicker.
changed throw-out bearing and slave
change thermostat - a must for southern heat...You can drive this car now in 100 degree weather and have no issues!
Installed Laser Jammer - best money can buy
new radiator - upgraded for Texas summers
SCT Tune - added more horsepower and reliability for southern climates and upgrades.
Installed Radar Detector - best money can buy
new silicone radiator hoses
ab spark plug high temp wires - allows for no loss in power during hot summer months
cold air intake with new filters - custom air box to provide more air to the motor for increased performance and improved engine life.
new o2 sensors - due to side exhaust conversion
new o2 simulators -due to side exhaust conversion
Updated battery - just simply replaced the original while I was having them do some other upgrades.
3.55 gears installed - this upgrade was to provide more immediate response of the power of the Viper
New fully adjustable coilovers - resulted the car being lower, more stable in corners and at high speeds...these are fully adjustable and easy to work with.
Mopar rear spoiler - provides an additional 400 pounds of downforce at 100pmh.
The brands of a lot of stuff you mentioned can make a big difference.
For instance the brake rotors. A good quality set of 2 piece rotors aren't cheap. A set of cheapy slotted and drilled off Ebay are worse than stock.
I hope you get about 60k for it since it looks just like my car! Damn, other than the different top and the fact that it stripless its my newer power window clone.
If it doesn't sell for my minimum...then I'll keep it and toss on some stripes and sell off something else to get the cash...put alot of work into this car making it a RELIABLE upgraded Viper that is ready for another 100k miles
Hey man your car looks pretty good especially for a rt, I'm not really a fan but I love that top. I just bought my gts a few months and it really is a buyers I got a steal on mine. Trade was in the low 40 s and I paid around 32 for a 8.5 out of 10 with less than 20k miles. For less than 5k my car is now a 10 and its exactly what I wanted. You never really get paid back for mods. I've been watching what both gts and rt's sell for lately and if you got 28k I'd take it. Quick cash sales are normally low so I'd ball park you at 25 for quick sale in Florida and 28-30 if you put some time into it. Pull your car fax and display it with the car good or bad that will help with your sale. Good luck with the sale.
Well in all honesty I have to agree with the other guys. I bought my car less than a year ago with a few thousand less miles and with all the mods you have plus a paxton that was tuned by DLM for 34k. At the time I thought I got a steal on it but lately I have been questioning that. I dont have any plans on selling the car so at this point it doesnt matter. I just enjoy its uniqueness compared to my previous sports cars. From what I have seen you would be lucky to get 28K and more like 25 like others said. To me its all about finding a person that really loves your car if you want to get more than that for it. With all these other cars selling for 20-30k on ebay its gonna be tough. Mods are usually only as valuable as the buyer is willing to pay. For me I was looking for a car that was already built so I could take advantage of the cost savings. I thought my diamondback hood and mods was well worth the 5k extra I paid over a relatively stock R/T. If I were a buyer in the market, I would honestly consider your mods minimal. It sucks because we all know what they cost on these cars.
Yeah. WTF. You're better than a Jerry Springer show some times
Ya, only going to sell at the right price. Got a really good deal on a Gen 3 that I was condering...but it's a win win for me. Sell the car and get this other one and enjoy it. Or keep mine and enjoy it...either way, I will be in a Viper that is how I want it
Really nice looking car from the pics, and it seems like you did some quality mods to it. But, it being Black & an RT/10 might hurt you a lil' bit (some people just do not want a black car & then some do not want an rt/10) though I think an RT/10 looks better than a GTS when the top is OFF! Also, with the lemke top it looks 10X better than the oem toupee top! I haven't seen ANY cars as nice as yours selling for 28-30k Anywhere! Unless you just have to have the cash now, I would Never sell it for that! Would you be willing to sell the lemke top!
