Advice on potential purchase of 1LE....

I am currently looking at a 15 1SS 1LE with Recaros/NPP. The car has is a bolt on/cam car with a little over 15,000 miles.

The car was in an accident but has a clean title. It was only minor damage requiring some panel replacement upfront and was done at a certified chevrolet dealership.

I am not sure how to adequately understand what kind of price range this car should be in. I think I have a good feeling in the price I am looking at but I am concerned about the potential resale value even though the title is clear.

I am hoping to just get some general numbers of what others think a good ballpark would be.

I would say $22,000-$26,000 but that's my opinion. I purchased my 2015 2SS/RS 1LE W/NPP, Moon roof but no recaros. Car had 4250 miles on the clock and $10,000 in performance add-ons bought it for $29,000. Did not want a moon roof but couldn't turn the car down.

First that car will be worthless in the winter weather in PA without a doubt . That said there will be no warrantee . I would also check if it can pass PA emissions B4 you buy it. If the cam swap was done properly with a DD cam that's a big plus. If not it will be expensive and a pain to repair. When buying a car with internal mods it can be a real crap shoot. You will need to have it checked out by a reliable shop/tuner. If the car has a bad Carfax the value will be less. All in all it could be a lemon or a cherry ,you need to figure out which B4 you dive in . Assuming all is good I think $25000.00 is a fair deal for both the seller and the buyer. If all is good the buyer will greatly benefit from the sellers cost of mods and cars depreciation .

Have you seen pictures of the damages before, during, and after repair? The car may not be entirely repaired to OEM specs and many shops gladly cut corners on materials and less noticeable areas. Were OEM parts used for the repair? If insurance paid the bill the answer is probably no.

I would expect a properly repaired car to be worth around $2000 less and an improperly repaired car to not be worth your time.
