35th Anniversary 197 Value

What would you guys say this thing is worth? Very clean, ~230 hours. #24 of 35.

Spare parts, I'll gladly take it off your hands so you no longer have to look at that eye sore



Seriously though - I'm not sure, but it is one of the most sought after prostars out there. I suspect one in good condition, as this one appears to be, and the low hours, you could probably fetch somewhere in the high 20's to north of $30K. I'm just guessing, there are others on here far better than I at estimating potential resale values.

35th Anniversary 197 Value

Again, condition will be the big variable, but my guess is low to mid 30s at a minimum, given those hours. Tower adds some monetary value in absolute terms, but some purists will consider it a liability. Other goodies like second battery, upgraded (recently) stereo won't necessarily add much asking price value but will help with speed of sale. Dual axle trailer also a plus for most people.

6.2l, super clean, very rare and cool boat.

Found the ad. I don't think they're too far out of line. If you could get it closer to 30k it would be an exciting deal for sure, but in it's apparent condition that boat--with it's supply and demand--could still fetch mid 30s. Especially this time of year.

Only takes one person with $$ that wants it and *poof*

My thought would be more. That's arguably the best looking MC made. A person looking for this boat knows exactly what it is/how rare it is. They will be willing to pay the price.

List it around 40. Don't let it go fro less then high 30's

Nor would I want a 40th. This thread makes me smile…this will probably be the only 35th that comes up for sale this year.
