#0001 2013 Boss
« on: September 12, 2019, 05:11:13 pm »
Hi - not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, but my brother in law has the #0001 2013 Boss. He just had a heart attack and is thinking of getting rid of it, so I told him I'd look into it for him. He bought it new in Calgary, Alberta where he still lives. He didn't want the #1 car, he just wanted one to drive for fun. He tried to sell it when he first got it so he could buy another (not the #1) Boss just to have fun with, but nobody seemed interested, so he just gave up and kept it and drove it. It has about 9,000 kms (5,600 miles) on it now, but is 100% immaculate and has only been driven on sunny summer days. He was asking if I thought he could get what he paid for it. He paid about $60,000 CAD (about $45,000 USD - I don't know the exact number yet, but he told me he didn't pay over the MSRP for it). I don't know how to value this car - does anybody have any thoughts of whether that's a reasonable price, or is it too high or too low?

The BOSS cars, new and old have taken a hit, unless they are special.

#0001 might be worth more, but in today's market, I really don't know where you should price it. Usually those go to a collector for a later, increased sale. With 9000 miles on it, it probably isn't worth as much as you might think. It's out of warranty and that also matters to some.

I have an LS with 3000 miles and I plan to enjoy it more, probably hurting the future value. I did not buy it for that, but that is the reality of the market today.

I would put it on eBay and Hemmings with a reserve your comfortable with. If it sells fine, if not, lower the price a bit. It's not the best time to sell!

Good luck!

BOSS 302's are like a fabulous WI cheddar. Both get better with age and you buy them for your enjoyment, not as an investment.

If you want to sell put it on Bring A Trailer.com. You can put a reserve so if it doesn’t hit reserve you will get pretty good idea of the market. Best of Luck!!!

Keep in mind the color has some affect on the sale price. SBY brings more $ than black because out of the 765 produced only 262 were SBY.  Lately a 13 LS in black with under 10K miles has been selling for 32-35K. The same in SBY have been selling for 38-42K. Also depends if it has the track key/software enabled and still has all the extras in boxes that came with these cars from the factory.

Even though it's the first 13 LS produced now with 5600 miles there were known engine issues with the very early production cars which may also have some effect. The value of being 0001 would be up to a true collector to decide if that is important to them. I don't think your average owner is going to care.

Depending on the above, I would start at sticker and work my way down as time goes on if there is no urgent need to sell. Just my $.02....

Good Luck!

The true value of these cars will be realized in another 15 years when those who had to buy explorers and edges because of children but secretly wanted the boss 302 in the showroom.  When the kids are grown and the house is paid for these 50 year olds will start looking for these cars...0001 will be the unique among the special then.  An enthusiast with foresight will pay extra for 0001 now, imho it will be worth more in years to come.

You're right! Not sure why I assumed it was an LS.

Being just a regular Boss makes his situation even worse. Seems those are a dime a dozen right now so they are not bringing in very much $$. I agree though with 0f02r, that the value will eventually come years from now. We shall see......

I have been watching the regular Boss and LS prices for some time now. My figures are based on selling prices, not asking prices. Alot of Boss' are listed for sale with high asking prices but they are not selling. I bought my flawless 13 SBY LS with 900 miles and all the extras last May for under 40K. I know Gerhard would not let his go for anything less than over sticker which is great. Nothing wrong with keeping those values up....
