It looks like a Prima is for sale in Port Orchard, WA at Kitsap Auto Outlet right now. seems like a decent deal for even a regular 500 Sport around these parts. They do not actually have any good pictures of the number to verify but I think based on the VIN(3C3CFFBRXCT500169) it is 169.

If you're talking about the WHITE one with the AUTOMATIC transmission, that is NOT a Prima. I don't believe any of the Prima editions had automatic transmissions and the original side stripes were up much higher on the body.

The one in the link has photos with a manual transmission and a Prima badge on the dash

When I click on that link it takes me to a page with a white 500 with an automatic transmission for $7,888 dollars...YES, I JUST clicked on the link again. I even went back to the listing for other 500's and still didn't see the one you guys see. Boy, getting old is really bad for eyesight, I guess.

now I'm confused, it's a white one at that price, but clearly the photos show a manual, but the listing says Automatic. I'm not as familiar with the Prime ones, did they have cabrios like in the photos?

Ignore the words in the listing and look at the pictures. it is definitely a prima because it has the badges and is a manual transmission. Most dealers use a third party to create listings for them so they usually just assume automatic.

UNCLE!!! I hadn't blown up a picture of the interior. YES, it appears to be a Prima. The previous owner obviously did some work on it too. The original wheels were not body colored and I still say the original body stripe wasn't that low. That's a steal for someone that can still drive a stick. Warranty is gone, but only 34,xxx miles on the odometer.
