97 SW on ebay...

Not related to seller...

I ran across this 97 SW, looks great from 10 feet in the pics, but my question is, does the non original paint job take away value? The salvage title, high miles seem to have some factor. I am just curious, not looking to buy.

Just talking the color? Not in my opinion. It's actually an improvement IMO over a couple of the original colors offered in 97. At the end of the day it will likely offend a portion of the buyer market and attract another portion I the buyer market. The important thing to me is the quality of the work done. I'd personally rather have an original with normal patina than a half ass shiny paint job any day.

IMO non original color devalues it....even if it is a full proper color change. The worst thing to see is a half ass paint job... lift the hood and you still see the original color. No thanks.

For a Salvage title 97' with 150k... already overpriced.
