How much would you actually pay for one of these two tacomas?

Hi guys i am new to the forum but i am looking at tacomas and i saw two of them in my area and i would like to know how much are you willing to pay for each of these. Note they are both selling from the same dealer/owner and both are 2.7L 4 cylinder

OPTION 1:
1997 Toyota Tacoma extended cab 4WD 2.7 cylinder auto 120,000 miles, power windows, ac. Take a look at the craigslist ad. Asking price $7,000. It also has some dings and scratches on the right side.
EDIT: THE VEHICLE'S PRICE HAS DROPPED TO $6200! SO IM GONNA SEE WHAT I CAN DO. ITS WEIRD WHEN I LOOK AT THE LINK IT ON CL IT SAYS 6200 BUT WHEN I CLICK ON IT THE PRICE GOES TO 7000 ON THE TITLE BAR

http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/cto/2840963624.html

OPTION 2:
1995 toyota tacoma, reg. cab, 4WD 2.7 cylinder auto, 120,000 miles, ac, some oversized tires and it has manual windows nothing much but its still looks good. Take a look at the ad. Asking price $5,000.

http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/cto/2851589986.html

So give me some ideas of pricing and what you think all in all
Thanks for the help.

Its a hard choice but I would go with the 97 because it looks pretty untouched, modifications are good, but you really dont know what sort of can of worms you might be opening if you buy a truck with a big lift and tires, all sorts of stress on the frame, suspension, and many other things. Plus you can never be sure if everything was installed by a professional or someone with little experiance.

I would try for a 5 speed locking hubs one like mine. I paid 6500 for mine with 157k. I had to put another thousand to get it where I could dd it. I love my 97. It looked clean as a whistle too.

I would wait for a 5speed as close to stock as possible.

It looks solid, I would start out by offering him 6500 for it, if they seem negotiable, go down to 5k and see what happens! Good luck and hope to see you driving it soon!

Pass on both and look for a 98+ they have different upgraded parts all over.

Or get the 97 and ask no more then 5k...

Around here, that 97 would be considered a fair buy at $7K. It's not a bad asking price. You may want to check out the frame rust posts on the forum. They can look great on the outside and still have frame rust. I sold my 1998 SR5 Extended cab automatic 2.4L for $5500 October 2011, but it was a 2WD. It looked new, though.

Check the title too if they came from up north they have a higher chance for frame rust problems. If theyve been in florida their whole lives the frame rust might not be an issue. Also the 95 says new paint...makes me wonder whats under that coat they put on there.

Umm, start at $5k, then work up to $6,500... Once you offer $6,500, they certainly aren't going to go lower...

i'd vote for 97. its extended cab and according to add has various parts replaced like belts and brakes.

i'd say off top of my head that $6200 isn't terribly high for private seller. i'd offer $5500 and work up a few hundred

check out nada.com, edmunds.com, and kbb.com for pricing.

Around my neck of the woods, Tacomas are hard to come by. I searched (half-a**ed) then enlisted the help of a broker. It came to solid non wrecked 1997-2004 4x4 for 9 to 12k. No luck. My bro was talking about getting rid of his for something bigger, so I ended up trading my 2006 Chevy Z71 (perfect - I owned since new). Couldn't be happier

Also sold my Jeep Wrangler because as much as I liked it, it is no Tacoma quality wise. Hence reg cab -- I do a lot of off road'n.
