hey guys, i was wondering...i'm buying, ot thinking about buying a 93 lude...it has had an engine swap to an H23....i drove it and it seems mechanically fine...but the check engine light is on and it needs new rotors. It comes e-tested but not safetied. He's asking $4800. Is that a good price?. The body had 169k and the engine had maybe 45k. Surface rust on rear umber on drivers side and a bit near rocker panels but nothing major. What do you guys think? Thanks

Matt

4000 at the most i might be selling my h22 lude for close to 5 grand and the interior is mint the body is damn near perfect and the motor and tranny have 75000 on them with a brand spankin new clutch and flywheel so i think 48 is kinda high for a h23 lude but i guess it depends on how common they are near you

yeah well ludes around here(ottawa) arent too common, there'smaybe 10 available half which are 5th gen all over 12 grand so im working on a smaller budget. The interior is in good shape, i mean a little cleaning wouldnt hurt but besides that it's fine. Just the check engine light is what bothers me. I thought abe there was a common problem with that, MAbe cause of the engine swap?

I don't think I'd pay more than $3,500 for it. You never really know what you're getting when you buy a swapped engine car...

I got my 93 SI for 3000 (150xxx). I travel over 400 miles to get it but everything is in like new condition and I got 400 miles to the tank, so I would just travel a few miles to get a better deal...

i'd say thats a pretty good deal
ludes in canada alwasy sell for more then in the states
so if the body's in good condition,4000 is great
93's in alberta rarly drop below 6000
