I agree that it has had a lot of work done to it, and that’s great, but the bugaboo is the miles. 180,000 range puts one of these squarely in the sunset of its years. Now, if it was me, and I could...

$5,500 is high for that mileage.
I’d say more in the $3,500-4,000 range.
I sold a 99 with 176,000 miles for a bad auto tranny but the motor was still healthy.
I drove a 97 once with 225,000...

We finally got a load of these in at the local dealer. I got an invitation to the official (regional) launch event held on the rooftops of downtown Oklahoma City.
It was a perfect night for it.......
