1500 engine

Post by hap2 » Sat Oct 04, 2014 6:18 pm

I have a engine from a 1992 1500SE possibly for sale. It's only got about 123,000 miles on it. Starts every time...lots of compression. What do u think I could get for it? I see close to $1000.00 on ebay.

Just because you see something listed on eBay for a certain price doesn't mean that is the going price. $1000 is an awful lot for a GL1500 engine, there are many on there with half the mileage for between $500 and $600.

If you want an idea of the real market value, pick a few engines on auction (not fixed price) on eBay, copy down their auction IDs, and wait. When they have finished, while they won't show up in the search anymore, you can still bring them up by looking up their auction IDs. You can then see what they actually went for - which will give you a good idea as to the value of your engine.
