Bad Pony said:This is fabulous. If we were smart, we'd all list our Bosses for sale for $85K. Why? Because (and I speak from painful experience) if you are unfortunate enough to total your Boss (sorry to hear, jfolsom28!), the insurance adjuster will go look up the price of new-ish Mustangs and offer to settle for a ridiculously low price, because to them a Mustang is a Mustang. After much hectoring, you'll convince the adjustor that a Boss is special, so he will start trying to find out what they're worth by visiting online listings. He'll find 3 for sale similar to yours. Two of them will have fair asking prices and be legit. But some moron on the other side of the country, who thinks he has a Boss but it's just some lame aftermarket decals, who lists it as a Boss anyway, will ask about 1/2 of what the other two legit Bosses are asking. And the adjustor, armed with this information, will offer you a price about 10% less than what it's worth. At that point, you can engage in a protracted fight, or you can settle. And more often than not, you'll settle, getting screwed in the process.
I recently went through this with a car that was a bit more rare, and it sucked.
The online ads are free and you're not selling by VIN. And hey, if someone offers to pay you $85K for your Boss? Find one just like it at market, buy it, and sell it to the buyer.
The next time I find 10 spare minutes, I'm soooo listing my car for sale. If it helps one Boss owner one day, balance will be restored to the universe.
