Overpriced?

Does anyone else feel that this car is overpriced? If so, please tell me what a good price for it should be and if not please tell me why.

That's probably a decent price given the location and condition of the car. They tend to be considerably more expensive in Canada than in the States. That's be a $4000-$5000 car here at best. Regardless of what it says about condition, get a pre-purchase inspection done. Spending $100-$200 now could save you thousands later. Negotiate with the seller. If it fails on any major point (particularly suspension or rust) the seller pays for the inspection AND drops the price.

Unless the 323 was sold with different options in Canada, none of them came from the factory with an LSD. Check the vin to confirm.

I emailed the seller, asking for the last 7 of the VIN. If they reply, I'll run it and report back.

Very true. Make sure you get underneath the car and check it out. East Canada has major rust problems with cars.

I would hate to see if someone runs the vin on my car... the only original thing in it is the body and wiring.

Agreed, it's just that the ad says Stock LSD.

I don't know. "Stock LSD" would imply it came that way. It didn't.
