Sell it as is, advertise it as the "perfect winter beater". That way buyers won't expect a perfect car.

I would say sell it as is. In the Seattle area, there are tons of snowboarders and skiers that would love to pick up a little Subaru for thier college car for a couple grand. For those of us who can afford to give them up and get something else...170k is a good time to consider it. I have seen too many with blown head gaskets at that stage of the cars life. Car lots don't even want them because chances are it is more headaches than it is worth. Unless they are as perfect as perfect gets, they are wholesale rigs.
Incidentally, your market will increase infinitely in October if you live in or near a snowy winter weather region.
