In a nutshell, is a 1997 model EL Futura 6cyl , white,manual 178,000 with log's- completly stock and I still cant believe it pretty much faultless- no oil leaks, barely even any scratches WITH rwc and 10 months reg worth $4,500-$4700???

Ive seen tooooooo many rat xr6's to keep looking at them...and this futura seems really good- clutch is the best i have ever felt even with no welds at firewall.

i picked mine up for 3,500, 160k, stock, 5 spd, 2 owners.

I wouldn't really pay anymore than that.. I've seen a hand full go for that price with as many k's etc. You just need to be patient

I personally think it's a grand or more overpriced, especially given the current used car market!

however it can be worth buying a mint car vs something that's clapped and spending bux trying to get it up to scratch.

You're probly gona pay 3k for a comparable auto. So with all things being equal you could be looking at $1500-$2000 for a manual conversion. If you want a manual buy a factory one, less stuffing around.
