I suspect several members have contacted your privately to try and buy the car. Their offers may or may not be fair market value for a private sale, of that you will need to do your due diligence, no matter who they are, or what they tell you. Your best bet is one of the larger auction houses, or if you want to play with the peanut gallery, you could put it on Bring-A-Trailer (BAT for short).


Highest and best is what you want for the family.......


I'll leave it at that

You said numbers matching but isn't 9F03R481542 a color change car? Registry indicates Black Jade which it still was as of 1994. If that is the case then I wouldn't suggest describe it as numbers matching.  Looks great regardless. Best of luck with the sale .You might go over the auction prices from the recent Mecum auction to get a idea of current prices.

This website summarizes a lot of recent sales

Classic.com

Mileage is really irrelevant if the car has been restored and it certainly looks like it has
