It's worth about $45.00 and I'll be over next week to pick it up. I can give you a $10 retainer fee to hold it till then.


I'm only kidding. Hard tops generally sell between $500 and $1500 depending on the condition, features, and year. Just a plain hard top in good condition off of an 05.... meh, maybe $900-$1100 depending on the local area.

There's a Idaho local guy selling his tan hardtop & sliding half-door uppers for 1400.
I don't know the condition, it's on CL.

Wait until winter to sell if you can, prices usually spike then.

a big x2 on that... Not that I want you to skewer someone or anything - but supply and demand is definitely something to consider, and the demand goes way up when winter sets in.

^ Screwing some one isn't one of my intentions. Getting top dollar for what something is really worth is worth the wait. Why sell it for $900 when they sell for $1200 other times of the year?

x3. The guy selling his for 1400 will probably be sitting on it for a while. It's not going to sell very fast at that price.

He's been sitting on it since about mid-June.
