PostSubject: Going to look at an SS today...   Tue Feb 08, 2011 9:57 am

After buying my 9C1, I have an urge for the real thing. I found a 96 SS with 60k locally that the owner says has some rust. It's a one owner car, DCM (my favorite color), has the WX3 code, and he says the interior has no rips, but the carpet needs to be cleaned. I have to find out the actual milage though, he says the odometer blacked out. Depending on rust, what would you guys realistically pay for one? The book shows around $10k, which I know you can probably never get close to. Heres the compnine breakdown:

It would have to be mint to get 10k for it. If it has rust, and the carpets filthy, i'd question the mileage. probably more like 160k not 60k.

It really depends, i've bought so many of them in the past 10 years. 2500-5k depending.

I know its a little work, but won't cost you a dime:
If you have an ebay account or know someone who does, ask the guy for the VIN number
Take the number and go to ebay and start a listing for an impala ss, put in the VIN and put the starting bid @ 40,000 or some ridiculous number that no one Is gonna bid
(This may work in the classified section too not sure, ebay automatically will incluse an autocheck on the vehicle (which was automatically loaded when you type in the VIN.
After posting you can click on the auto check and it will give you the entire history of the car, registrations and inspections all the way back to new. With each inspection the mileage should be listed. Obviously if its got one listed at over 60k you know he's full of shit. You can cancel the ebay post now and use item is no longer for sale as the reason and you are charged nothing for listing/unlisting.

I have done this 6 times to find out the true mileage on my caddy brougham and 5 caprices. Worked everytime and on 2 occasions caught someone full of shit and the mileage was actually 3 times what they said it was! Swapped a digi gauge from the junkyard and I wouldve never known! Worth a shot! I'll do it myself if you wanna PM me the VIN

Thats an awesome idea! I'm gonna give that a shot. I did get the vin from him so I could check compnine and see that it was a true SS (at least as far as the vin shows).

That is so cool! I just did that and he is full of shit. The last reading was in NY in 2005 at 140k. I'm still going to look at it, but knowing this he isnt gonna get the asking price out of me, thats for sure. Thanks for the tip.

What a great idea! Can't believe I never thought of that. I have gotten free Carfaxes from people on FSC before but this is ingenious.

Not a problem guys! Glad to help! I came up with this after getting poked hard on a 94 caprice with a faulty gauge. Been working ever since!

And btw, the classified section worked for me and was a lot less work than listing an auction. Took a few minutes to get what I wanted.

Ahhh I thought so yeah its quicker w/ the classified, I didn't wanna say it would work and then it not. I knew for a fact the national ad would. I'm glad it worked out for you. Next time I do it -'ll have to use the classified way for a quicker check!

Great idea about ebay!

Walk away from the car, there is more they are hiding, guarantee it.

I know a nice, modded, 6 speeded, 95 that the history is well documented on that you could have for $7500... Wink

This is the CL ad for it. Random price drop? Hmmm, I wonder how much of a mess this car really is

The guy sold it to the body shop that was appraising the rust repairs. Kind of a good thing. If I had bought the SS, I would have to sell my 9C1 due to lack of room, and I really like the 9C1. Hard to resist the DCM SS though, thats my favorite B-body color.
