The guy bought it at a dealership somewhere in NYC or Long Island, the name escapes me. I bought an 88 GLS 2 years later, down in Allentown, PA, for $10K. It had a sunroof and alloy wheels. I remember because with 6% PA tax it came out to 10,600. My first new car.$8600 doesn't quite sound right to me - Hyundai Excel GL - Archived Road Test - Car Reviews - Car and Driver - page works in Chrome, re-directs in Firefox.
I had the price wrong, but the base model was $5K - but I wouldn't think it was $3600 more for the GLS - especially without an automatic.
