1984 MCI MC9 For Sale

To start, there is a previous post regarding how to price this vehicle,
and a list of its features. I have moved out of state, and storing this has become a major hassle.

It has a cracked axle, and its quoted between 7-8K for repair/replace of that and a few other small things. (bay door latch replacements, and oil pressure gauge replacement for accuracy)

Not sure what to price it as such. Times for my family are financially tight, as we have just moved into a new home, and have another child expected later this year. I will accept any reasonable offer, and open to trades of vehicles +cash for it as well.

Located in Elkhart Indiana, will not meet halfway due to me being out of state as it is.
