Thread: “High Mileage” ones for sale -

    “High Mileage” ones for sale -

    Here are few on sale right now with more miles than we typically see especially on BaT. I don’t think I have seen prices like this (especially the two top ones) for a while. Quite surprised especially as the car prices in general have been just crazy. Maybe having a flood of Z8s and Alpinas on BaT has saturated the market and demand is down now. There are currently 2 Z8s and an Alpina on BaT.

    I would say a bargain, especially when G-Wagen and plain 911s are fetching 200K+

    If I wasn't in the middle of building an off road adventure live aboard I might jump back in, but right now my dream is to wander the land taking landscape pictures, so I'm building an off grif rig to go do that.

    Congrats on the sale of the cruiser. Quite the result!

    Thank you, it's incredible that I sold a 26 year old truck for exactly the price of my brand new F350!

    Do you have a pic of what you’re building? Sounds like some serious adventure!

    The top pic is a rough of how mine will look, and the below is a completed one that is similar but different. My plan is once all my days of work are done, I want to take off and drive to Alaska and the tip of South America, so I'm building it as a 10 year home.

    Andrew, is there a bathroom and shower area by the back door?

    Nice to have a thread on higher mileage cars for sale. Does 40k + miles make them eligible or would it be lower or higher?

    Yes, there's a shower and toilet going on the passenger side by the by the back door in my one, and of course I'll be doing a different color scheme too :-)

    I'd say 40k miles is also a pretty good crossover point to high miles, with maybe another step at 75k, and another at 100k.

    oh hell yes it is.

    we do not like leaving our dogs with strangers and have been talking about something similar in our future.

    A requirement for me is to tow a car trailer and having driven F350’s for 30 years now, I know that they are insanely capable.

    is your truck diesel?

    No, I got a gas 6.2 as my dream drive is to take the Pan American highway to Patagonia, and the modern diesels can't run on the fuel they have down there.

    Ah….I had no idea.

    At the increased cost of entry plus the cost of Diesel, they never pay for themselves like they did 15-20 years ago.
