Is This Donor For Sale Worth It?

Need some opinions, recently found a listing in las vegas on facebook for an 09 na coupe 5 speed with 140k miles. seller was asking 4500 but said he had wiggle room.

compared to others posts about their donors, this is somewhat pricey but i’m not sure if i should jump on this opportunity or wait and look for stuff of copart and IAAI.

The only thing with the auctions is the shipping, fees, etc. that make me think a local decent condition cobalt might not be a bad idea, but any input here is appreciated!

On one hand, starting with a running, driving donor can be a great thing.

On the other hand, 2.2L NA's are kind of a dime a dozen.

In this market, I'd say $4500 isn't terrible, especially if he "wiggles" down to $4k.

I paid $4,750 for my 06' SC donor with 123k on the clock. Running car in good condition. I'd see if he would entertain $3,750-$4k.

I paid $2k for my running and driving SS donor. That seems very high for a non-SC/TC variant.

A quick search of your area (within 200 miles) isn't showing anything under $5k. If you've got time to roll the dice you can offer a lower price and hope it's not bought out from underneath you. Remember to put things in perspective. You can't even build the engine for $5k so the parts you get out of the donor, even at the asking price, is a fair value.

Sorry to hear that health issues are sidelining your Goblin. Hopefully you can get better and get back in the game soon! :D
