    Excellent shape, 53k miles, automatic, how much is it worth from a dealer?

    KBB doesn't have a listing for the Firehawk edition :dunno:

    Get a price for one with the WS6 (Ram AIr) package. Then the Firehawk is worth a bit more than that.

    Edmunds gave me a dealer price of $14,500. Seems a bit high though.

    WS6 was the performance package for regular Firebirds. The Firehawks were upgraded by SLP and were a step above the WS6.

    Hmm, the WS6 price for this car would be $17250 (suggested retail, $13100 wholesale). The guy at the dealership is listing it at $17500. Is that even halfway reasonable for a starting price?

    Seems a bit high to me, but it was a $35k car new.

    No, the Firehawks had a more subtle hood... one without the big ram air nostrils.

    Average starting price markup on a used car is around 4k :big grin: I'm not paying what they ask, that'd just be foolish :big grin:

    its reasonable.

    are you paying cash or financing? cash would knock that price down a couple grand w.o even trying

    also thats not exactly the most popular color.

    it'd be financed, but that's handled, it's the same as cash to the dealer

    99 Firehawks with mileage that high wouldn't sell to a reasonable buyer for more than $16,000...good buyers would get them for $14,500 :o

    It should be noted they've had this car for like a month at least. I was in there a month or more ago and asked about the price, they wanted like $27k for it then :bowrofl:
