What is my 88 Legend worth?

My grandma gave me her 1988 Acura Legend V6. My husband and I just bought a new truck, so we don't have a need for an extra car. I couldn't find anything older than a 1990 on KBB to compare it to. I ran across this forum when I tried to find values of 1988 Legends. I would appreciate anyone's help in determining a fair price to sell this car to a private party. I would consider this car in excellent condition as everything works and looks like new. Thanks in advance!!

It has 138K miles. It is automatic. My grandma always had it serviced at her Acura dealer. I'm not immediately aware if anything has been replaced other than for routine maintenance. It is four doors. Nothing is wrong with it. I was using it as a daily driver until my husband recently got us a new truck. I would appreciate a ballpark estimate on what would be a fair asking price as I really have no idea what to list it for on craigslist. Thanks!

It would also help if you get us pictures of the Front, Back, Left and Right side, engine bay, and interior. Since it has a low mileage, you can get roughly around $2-$3k.

I'd list it for $2,500 but look toward getting $2k...any pictures?

Good luck!

There are quite a few members on this Forum that are from California. If you post some pictures I am sure someone might just take it off your hand. High asking price would be around $3,500.00 - low around $2,000.00

Yeah, $2500-ish, give or take. If it's in nice enough condition and you post some pics here in the for sale section, like others have said, someone here from the forum may buy it. GLWS!

Ok thanks for all your help. I posted an ad on my Craigslist for $2200. I'm hoping to have luck there since I need 50 posts to put an ad on this site.

I don't think it's too high. The one that sold the G2 probably had some wear and tear, or just didn't care about how much he wanted. Just keep trying your luck and hopefully someone would buy it.
