    I like millers. From the pics yours looks like she needs a little elbow grease. Those are some interesting headers. Are they thru transom? Well seeing as how new interior could cost anywhere between 1500 to 3k Id ask 2,500 and see what kind of offers you get. But then again i have been known to be wrong once or twice. Good luck with it!

    oh yeah a cut and buff will make it shine like glass, the headers are thru transom rewarder racing headers w/ 1 7/8 in. primarys to a 4 in. collector

    it looks like it has been sitting out for a while. How long were the headers open like that? Also how solid is the floor? If it was sitting for a while like that, the motor probably needs gone through to free it up. At least a couple cyl. will probably have rust from sitting with a valve open. I think Groper is close on what it will bring as it sits.... the more you do the more it will bring... but it needs a fair amount of work and a whole lot is unknown as it sits there. Still looks like a good project for someone and value is only what someone is willing to spend on it.... if you find the right person that boat is priceless. Just don't hold your breath for that right person unless it's you.

    cylinders are good, runs like a beast. and the headers were just like that in the pic and have been properly covered before and after the photo.

    These are outstanding quality boats they have a great ride with the "feel" and performance similar to and 18' SK and the interior room of a 21' I've owned a couple (including one built from a new Bare hull and have been very pleased $2500 is a good price IMO good luck ! Tom

    i bought a 20ft miller about 4-5 years ago. had no engine or pump, but had a new wiring harness, new bimini top, nice original trailer and the hull was in great shape. i think i paid 8-900 for it when i bought it. i really love the look of those 20' miller minis, but love even more the 20' sanger mini's. i ended up trading the miller straight up for my 20 sanger mini cruiser minus the jet and engine, only thing was my sanger had a crack in the bottom, so i had to flip it and fix it up. but it had nice interior and the miller had no interior...i think i got an amazing deal with that one. good luck with the sell, people can barely give their boats away right now.
