I am giving some thoughts to selling my 1992 Brougham. I would appreciate thoughts and comments on this.

The car is a 1992 Brougham with 21,000 miles. Chauffer driven, kept in climate-controlled garage, non-smoker. Pristine condition.

I have made some mods, such as American Racing Vector Commemorative Edition wheels, Michelin tires 235/70-15 Raised White Letters, and custom steering wheel.

I have the OEM wheels with spoke wheel covers, which have the original gold-stripe whitewalls. Also the original leather-covered steering wheel.

I was thinking of offering the car For Sale as is, and if it doesn't sell, putting it back to stock condtion, and trying it that way.

As a used car (According to Kelley BB ) the car is worth around $4,500, but as a Classic/Collector car the Price Guides show a value of around $12,000.

Honestly I'd put it back to stock. The guy that pays $12k is either going to want a perfect original like yours minus the Dukes of Hazzard wheels and fogs or he is going to want a wild low rider showcar. The steering wheel adds a bit of class, I'd say that can stay, the other stuff is your unique taste which others may not "feel". Anyway, nice ride and good luck with the sale. :thumbsup:

Put it back to stock and put it on eBay.. you will get a good $7.5-10K for it.

If you sell those American Racing Wheels and Michelin tires, I am interested!! :thumbsup:

Seeing a 21k car in that kind of mess is sad. Put her back to original specs just for the sake of humanity.

Just to clarify, no offense to the OP. I just love a clean, low-mileage original.

Have to agree with the majority here. You stand a much better chance of selling the car and getting nearer what you want if the car is stock. You can offer the modified parts as extras or sell them off separately. Good luck!

Those wheels look so familiar.....Buick Grand National or Jeep Grand Wagoneer??

Send it back to stock, it'll be a lot easier to sell that way.

My vote re: those wheels is that they are from a 1984 Buick Grand National.

A Bud up here spent YEARS finding a mint set for his GN. And I won't even begin to tell you what he paid for them, buying them one at a time - as he had to do,,,,,
