Yes. Trying to decide:
1. Should I sell it?
2. If I do, is that price appropriate?

I've found many posts here very helpful, especially regarding LSE/HPP, so I thought to reach out to the group for some focused insight.

Opinions:

Pros (in favor of asking price):

Lots of upgrades on top of a very nice factory option set, would certainly have grabbed my attention when I was hunting for my current car.

Important time/mileage dependent wear parts/maintenance dealt with.

Appears to be in really good shape, inside and out.

Mileage isn't especially high.

Safely usable tires.


Cons (in favor of a lower price):

Car is 19-20 years old.

Almost 150K miles

Limited market (probably not appealing to the classical Panther-buying demographic)


I usually take exception to slapping 'rare' on stuff, but this case it seems appropriate... certainly not the most common options, and don't recall having seen any that look exactly like it (I've always had an eye out for Panthers, even before I owned one).

Car definitely appears to be in good shape - leather looks well cared for, and the wheels appear to be undamaged. I suppose it'll be a tradeoff between selling it quickly and finding someone with this specific configuration in mind.

Only other remark I have - the ad is a bit hard to read through, as it's written in one contiguous paragraph, but definitely covers the sort of details I would appreciate seeing if I was looking for a car.

As a closing note: I'd drive the heck out of it, and be very torn about parting with it.

I vote keep it. But don't come down one penny on the price otherwise.

Guessing it sold since the ad is down.

Thanks for the input, all. Not any "back door approach"...I found I accidentally had two listings on CL so I deleted one yesterday morning. Must have been the one I linked to above.

I'm a total newb and wanted input quick, since I had interested lookers but was second-guessing listing it. I've learned a great deal from those here about the value and relative rarity of LSEs, especially early ones, and wanted to get some qualified second opinions. Thanks to those who chimed in. I'm thinking now I'll keep it, and learn how to share pics the "right" way.
