    What is the current market value range for a '93 512 TR? This particular car is red/ tan and in excellent condition, with about 16k original miles on it.

    My estimate is 95k. If it is an earlier serial number, then it has the two piece diff, would be worth a bit less, say 85k.

    I see from your other post on luggage that it's from a sellers perspective. As mentioned above I agree buyers are easily paying $90k plus with that type of mileage and the "diff does not make a diff" in price nor does source of purchase, as not every buyer ascribes to or is aware of the claimed auto destruction concerns/fears attributed to the diff housing problem that some fellow owners have experienced, and regarding the purchase source comment above, some cars pull more at an auction over private sale as egos come into play in the bidding war (anyone who's been to an auction knows the deal), so cars at action are not totally indicative of price expectations.

    As you already know it will come down to how long are you willing to wait to get the desired price (assuming its realistic) and the vehicles condition (tires, clutch, service, sticky parts, etc). If the car is already A1 and well documented ask for the $100k+ (Be prepared to wait awhile) and haggle down to the right parting price. Keep in mind as with any high end specialty car, buyer options are limited between fewer than 10 cars for sale nationally at any given time, so they will make the determination of what's important to them and buy the car at the right price for them at the end of their search.

    Thank you for the replies. This particular car was a friend of mine's who just passed away last week. I'm handling his estate and will be selling the car once the will is probated. He had owned it since 1993 and had a major service done about 3-4 years ago and he had put less than 1.000 miles on the car since then.

    I am now free to sell the '92 512TR which is part of my deceased friend's estate. I haven't advertised as yet. If you know of anyone who is interested, feel free to pm for details. I'll likely post an ad on Chat soon.

    Thanks, blakdiablo. Jack was a cool guy. He was always a Ferrari fanatic and I've never seen anyone cherish a car like he did. The 512 was his #1 passion. Although his health deteriorated within the last few years, he would still take it out for a drive about once a month ( only in perfect weather , of course!) and, fortunately, he had one last enjoyable ride three weeks before his death at 88 years of age. One of his favorite quotes was, " All Ferraris are red, regardless of what color the paint job is."

    Sorry to hear of his passing. Sounds like it may find a new home right here. Unfortunately I have 512TR taste on a TR budget. Hoping to join the ranks in 2 more weeks.

    Power steering??? That's a new one to me. Is there a thread detailing that? I would be curious to see how you did that.

    FWIW, your located on the wrong side of the Atlantic for many of the interested parties in the car discussed in this post.
