    SVTP I’m looking for a 1997 Rio Red Cobra with black interior, I’d like low milage (<50k, lower the better) and no or minimal mods (quality exhaust, cobra R wheels, etc.).

    I am willing to pay a premium for the right car if in perfect condition. This was a car from my young adult life I’d like to own again.

    Thanks!

    It's a beautiful car, but I'm looking for an original specimen with the original engine. Thanks!

    I have a 97 rio (hardtop) with tan interrior. 36k miles and few mods (h-pipe, aluminum driveshaft, K&N drop-in, gears, shifter, springs) nothing that makes the car look non-stock though. I have an after market radio and seats as well, but I have the originals. I dont need to sell the car, but it just sits in my garage (covered). I have owned it for the last 11 years and only put about 7k on the car. I am in Michigan. What kinda price would you be willing to pay if it interests you?

    Man that’s the exact car I had, but even back then I really didn’t like the Tan interior. I’m going to hold out for a Black interior. Thank you!

    Nothing yet, I’ve had a few really nice cars offered, but I’m holding out for a perfect specimen. My 03 has 12k, I’d love a crazy low mileage stock 97. I’ve seen a few 96 & 98s sell of eBay with less than 15k, but they were laser red. There was one 97 with <10k, but it was a tan interior.

    I’ll find one, the search is half the fun!
