i would say its worth about 1500-1900 and thats what they wil give you. Pickup a NADA guide, and they usually give you the low end of it.

Just my opinion here, but unless you really love the car, with 144k miles on it I might just take the money and run.

You could buy a used tbird for dirt cheap right now, and you could get a newer one with lower miles.

If you fix it you will still have a car with 144k miles.
