1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

<!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: carform_post -->
Category: Domestic
Status: Clean Title

I have a 1988 Shelby CSX-T for sale, in Ontario - Region A.

Mileage: 12,800 miles
Engine Size: 2.2l Turbo


Asking price is $8500 (firm - I don't need the money or a fast sale)



1988 Shelby CSX-T (like new condition) #719

I purchased the car a couple of years ago when I saw it for sale due to the low miles (12,755 now). My wife had a similar vehicle as her "first car" when she was younger.

This car has never seen winter/salt, and has been stored inside (much of its life on jacks off from the wheels). It has been used for pleasure only, and has been very well maintained. It currently has a new battery and very new tires (low profile tires made especially for the racing wheels).

This may very well be the nicest and lowest (or nearly lowest) mileage version on the planet.

I also have a signed/autographed set of factory manuals (signed by Carroll Shelby before he passed away) that are new. They come with a Certificate of Authentication from Shelby Industries.

This Shelby is for sale locally (craigslist ad: http://annarbor.craigslist.org/cto/5775264173.html) in Ann Arbor, MI. More pictures can be seen on craigslist.

Thanks, I appreciate it. She is a gem, that's for sure. The rest of my pictures are on craigslist, but if I get a chance I will post some more here. You know, when I have time after taking my kids to church, Tae Kwon Do, dance, basketball.... =)

Hi Ghys.

I am more than happy to help with shipping/etc., but honestly, I know nothing about getting a vehicle out of the U.S.

So, I'm happy to help if I can, but I'm not sure how effective any help I may give would be!

Re: 1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

Hi All.

While I've had this car for sale, I've had some offers and comments on the value of the car. I'm certainly in no particular hurry to sell this car. I am, however, curious as to what you all (as Dodge Turbo fans) think this car is worth. I have always been surprised by "book value".

Thanks!

Re: 1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

If your car truly is as well preserved as it appears in the photos I don't think you're off the mark at all but you have to be prepared to sit on it for the time it takes. Sure you can find a more used version for much less but to repaint, rebuild the drivetrain, and make it "nice" you'd be into it far more than your asking price and with a car that would never be as good as yours. I hold well preserved originals as the high bar simply because of restoration costs and the lack of restoration parts for these cars. By the way, where are you guys getting a price guide? I'm disappointed to learn that the sources I use don't have these cars listed at all!

Re: 1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

Hey.

Just looking around on boards, Shelby Vehicles NADA Value (site), etc. The official NADA site also lists the Shelby CSX-T. I just looked today, and it lists it at $8,800 (high retail). But, that doesn't allow for shape, mileage, etc.

So, I would imagine that NADA uses "real-life data" in assessing the value. Apparently the fans are only paying this much.... I suppose something is worth whatever anyone will pay for it, right?

These Shelby cars are pretty cool, and I'm hoping there will be a surge in appreciation at some point. After all, what else was there to love in the 80s?

Re: 1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

I don't know, I feel differently when it comes to low mile/use well preserved original cars and to me they are the end all be all high bar. They're only original once. These cars aren't and never will be the Hemi cars of the 60's or the factory hot rods of the late 50's in terms of value. I don't think values will be very high with regard to the vast majority of them. Yep, I know there have been some exceptions but I really doubt that will be a long term continuing trend. There has been more interest in them in the past few years but I really think that's over and plateaued. I tooled around the NADA site and could not find any information about the shelby numbered cars. Regardless I think your car is a fantastic vehicle and I think your price is very fair. If it were me, I wouldn't move and just keep 'er in the garage until some lucky soul steps up. Clearly your car is the choice one to have and If I were in the market for a CSX-T yours would be the one, hands down THE end! I can't be the only one who sees that. Hang in there and the best of luck with your sale, it really is a beautiful well preserved car!

First of all VERY nice car!!! I own a nice one too, but not as low mileage as yours. IMO and several of my long time SD owner friends concur, the CSX-T is probably the best looking of all the Shelby Dodge cars. With that said, two things seem to hurt the resale value of the CSX-T. One it had no powertrain enhancements. It is just the basic 2.2 Turbo I powerplant. Cast crank, weak LW rods, small Mitsubishi turbo, and a520 tranny, made for a ho-hum powerplant. I've read Thrifty decided not the intercool, so it would maintain its 70/70 warranty after they got done in rental fleet. In other words they would be easier to resell with a longer warranty. The second is the really pedestrian base interior. It received great brakes, suspension upgrades, and yet the seats were just neglected. Even the ES seats are way firmer and more supportive, let alone having the 89 CSX Recaro seats.
On the nit-picking side, the black shifter surround console also is a weird one. Why it is black and not painted like every other Shadow is beyond me. IMO, it looks unfinished. One of the first things I did to mine was repaint the shifter surround to match the console, so it looks like it wasn't an afterthought.
Here is a pic or two of mine so you know I'm not just flappin my gums (lol). I used to own a 16K mile GLHT. I sold it because it just was a garage queen & dust collector. Too low mile to drive or to alter, so what do you do with it besides maintain it and look at it?
Good luck with sale! He or she is a beauty.

Re: 1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

Thanks for the comments, all!

4 L-bodies, I can totally relate to the "garage queen". I want to use the car more, but I just can't do it with the low miles! I had someone write me through Craigslist and beg me not to sell it to a kid who wants a cheap, low mileage first car. As just a car, it's pretty cheap wheels (almost like a new car for under 9k). Seems a shame to use it that way. But, it's also a shame to just look at it (IMO). And, as we all know, just letting them sit around is horrible (dry seals, etc., etc.). Cars need to be driven. No favors come from just sitting around....

Re: 1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

Take it from me, there is no reason at all that you can't drive the car a little bit guilt-free. I guarantee you when you sell it the next owner will. So put a couple of hundred miles on it. Don't worry about what the odometer says. The other thing, if you love the car and care about what happens to it then you have a responsibility to make sure it goes to the right person. I've been burned on a few sales where I was less discerning about the buyer. I have regrets selling a car similar to yours.. big time.

Re: 1988 Shelby CSX-T - $8500

This is a super nice example, and i think 8500$ is very reasonable!

With that being said, i can't think of a more painful experience then selling a really nice turbo dodge! If you hold out you should get your asking price, but be prepared to deal with flakes, tirekickers and lowballers. Good luck with the sale... I wish i had a bigger garage!
