1995 240 SX/SE Value?

Postby LFro » Mon Aug 29, 2022 8:47 am

I am the original owner of a 1995 240 SX/SE with 11,435 miles all original except for tires being replaced due to dry rot. Red with black leather, garaged kept since new.
It's time to sell and I thought this forum would be a great place to obtain the best advice for format and price range for a car of this quality.
Thank you for allowing me to become a member of your club.

Welcome. It's worth considerably more than what Edmunds or Kelly Blue book show, which both show it as fully depreciated. 240sx's are not technically considered "collectible" by dealer source sites as Nissan built a lot of them, BUT, they have become increasingly scarce due to attrition. In addition to age, accidents, and rust, they have become highly coveted especially among the drifting/tuning communities which tend to be rougher on them . And a clean, unmolested, non-rusty, garage kept, single owner 240SX with receipts, especially with a manual transmission would be considered a home run acquisition and could fetch well in excess of $20,000. You might consider getting it detailed nicely and try a national auction site like Bring a trailer.com and set it with a strong reserve price and see what happens.

fwiw, I had a red '89 SE that I bought new as a DD, garage kept for 14 years, and put 180K on it and sold it in 2003 before I became aware of the 240SX's "drift tax" (premium that drifters are willing pay for them). Fast forward almost 20 years, and I'm confident you'll be very happy with the offers you'll get.

Enjoy

Thank you, Bubba. This one is an automatic.

An automatic is not a deal killer, it's just that the manuals are more coveted by the performance community. That said, attached is a link to a current Bringatrailer.com listing for a 2nd owner '93 SE automatic with 143,000 miles. With a week to go in the auction, it's already at $15,000. That's pretty good and yours is an original owner example with about 130,000 fewer miles.
