1991 Acura NSX: Let's Make A Deal
February 06, 2012
I was recently cruising eBay and AutoTrader for NSXs. I'm not in the market, just curious to see what they're going for. That's what many of us car guys do -- look at cars we're not going to buy. And judging by what I saw, it looks like we got a decent deal on our alluring Acura.
On eBay, I saw seven of which there were four early examples. There were two with Buy it Now prices: a '92 with just 29.5k miles for $44,900 and a '91 with chrome wheels (ughh!) and 35.5k miles for $42,500 or b.o. There's also a Sebring Silver one like ours with 30k miles; the high bid is at $25,550 so far with reserve not met. Checking out the "Completed Listings" I saw a lot of unsold NSXs along with a 2002 with 24k that sold for $48,000.
Over at AutoTrader.com I saw a couple that looked close to our car in terms of year, mileage and condition. A '91 with 35.5k miles was listed for $42,500 while a '91 with 38k was listed for $34,000. Then there was another '91 with 41k miles for $28,995 but it had no photos, which to me is a red flag. Lastly, I spotted a '93 with 53k listed at $28,999.
According to the long-term intro, we paid $33,000 for our NSX with 45.9k miles on the clock. After this informal survey and all things considered, I'd say it was a fair deal.
