i'm planning on selling my car soon (just moved to nyc -- the tickets are killing me). i was wondering what i can reasonably expect to get for it.basics: 88 jeep cherokee, 4 door, 4wd, automatic. 195,000 miles (massachusetts and rhode island highway miles).the good: rebuilt engine put in 50,000 ago. new cooper tires 8 months ago, new 9 months ago, new water pump 2 years ago, pretty new battery. i've maintained it well and have the service records/sales receipts. the bad: the cloth on the roof is falling down, and my car's not exactly the prettiest on the block.the ugly: clearcoat starting chipping off three years ago (damn those 88-89 blue cars) so i blasted it off the hood with a power hose. it's still peeling on the hood, though. the power door locks only work on the front two doors. the only window that goes all the way down is the drivers' side ($50 to fix them, so i only fixed mine). and i had an accident two years ago, so my front bumber is bent. needs a new alternator.basically, everything under the hood except for the transmission has been replaced. it's just not a pretty car.also: should i fix the cosmetic issues before trying to sell. i can get a 200 paint job at maaco, which should make the car much prettier. should i bother, or should i just lower my price?any and all advice appreciated.thanks.
