what value does Geico go by to determine reimbursement for a total loss?

I Have a 1999 SVT Ford Mustang Cobra with 116,000 miles on it, that was in excellent condition that i have recently totaled and Geico is only offering me 7600 but NADA is 9200 and KBB is 9600. How can i fight this? they say there not going to change it.
