Default How much is this PT worth??

I know worth is a relative thing and that I can look up Blue book values online, but I'm just wondering what I can expect if I sell my PT that I've been putting a lot of work into.

2002 Touring Ed Blue
104k miles, Automatic
New Transmission Control Module, Shift Solenoid, Filter.
New Water Pump, Timing Belt, Oil Seals, Tensioner
One of the Alloy rims is bent(with a slow leak)
So I have a steel rim in its place, Dash has some cracks
New Multi function switch (lights, wipers)
New Battery (with a year warranty).

I live in central Florida (b/t Tampa and Orlando) and I've been trying to sell this (for what I think is quite low) with little to no interest. Any ideas, suggestions, or a ball park of what one would reasonably pay for this??

... I know you's guys are pretty knowledgeable when it comes to all these sorta things ... thanks in advance ...

Bentron,

Nothing on your list makes your PT worth any more. Your mileage hurts. People expect a car to have things fixed to keep it running. I'm no expert and I did use Kelly Blue Book for an average then knocked off for missing wheel and cracked dash. Haven't seen your car so can't say what the outside looks like so I'd just take a wild guess at $2500 - $3500.

yeah, i was asking 3,000 for it, outside is pretty much mint condition ... maybe i should try asking 2500 ... i have almost nothing invested in it ... and I know cars are generally regarded as a money pit of sorts ... thanks for the input ...

Unfortunately what we do to our PT's usually mean nothing to prospective buyers. If we do anything to the engine it scares people as they think we tried to turn it into a "racer".
When I traded the 2006 in on the 2008, I told the salesman (after we agreed on the trade in value) that the "shiny" stuff I had on it wouldn't be there when I traded it in, as I planned on putting it on the new 2008. His comment was, "might as well as the price isn't based on that anyway". They probably just took it to a auction anyways.

You should fix the rim, and add a carfax to your ad if your PT has had no accidents. And push the fact that the timing belt and water pump are done and she is good to go for another 100k.

Hey their Bentron



Yep, the sad truth is, at the end of the day, it matters little if anything what is said and done to our PT's to add any kind of value whatsoever. My aby is a prime example of that. I have about $7000.00 worth of a complete repaint and graphics in candy apple tangerine pearl from House of Kolor, another $3000.00 worth of audio/video set up, $4000.00 worth of custom air ride suspension and the list goes on, nd on. It i even a true Dream Cruiser Series 2 which ca,e sequentially Numbered by Chrysler at # 0377 of a now confirmed limited production to 1840 out of an originally estimates 4500 units per sale worldwide.

The original sales fell short after it was feared people would be afraid of the OEM orange color scheme which resulted in poor initial sales via factory to deakership which in then end cut production down dramatically.

Anywyas, even with all the work i put ino mine, having every available option for 2003 via the Dream Cruiser package, and having le3ss than 50,000 miles on her, unfortunately the value is sadly still pretty much the same. overall if I wanted to sell her. Though I love my PT too much to ever par with her and instead plan on keeping her and continuing to mod her per my buget till I am satisfied, and then pass her down to my next generation, but still, money wise...

will it increase its value monetarily enough to make it worth fixing the rim, or buoying a new one? same with the cracks in the dash?

You may not make extra money by fixing the rim but if I was coming to look at it the rim would be a major turn off. The dashboard would be too expensive to fix.

Ditto, some things are worth doing and that is one of them.

I just sold my 2002 Limited with 107,000 miles for $5495. Had new timing belt, 2 fairly new tires, dual exhaust and a "few" painted pieces inside. Sold it on cragislist. Sure do miss that little car.
