thanks, i needed a good laugh.
~20 years later ?
If my memory serves me correctly it was a tribute build to the 20 year anniversary of a win by an SL/R 5000 Torana.
Why? Stored correctly they would be fine. I'd love to see the engine number sequence of the 120 vehicles, that would show production time.
What I don't get is, why show photos that have seat covers and blankets on the seats, and a scrumpled-up mat on the floor. What is being hidden ?
Either the seats are fubared or it is actually exposing the fact that some people have no idea how to prepare and promote an item for sale.
I've seen pics of cars for sale for 6 figure sums where the seller has made no attempt at even cleaning the car (inside or out) and just expect it to sell coz of what it is.
I doubt it, there is no way a 70's spec engine would pass ADR/EPA in a 1990 era vehicle.
Plus the heads/cam/intake/exhaust would be wrong just to name a few.
At best, use block & rotating assy only.
Still very highly unlikely though.
Probably got cop chips in them too
Why use Carsales when you can get a bargain at Shannons Auctions. From their website...………..
"Strike me pink! Torana XU-1 sells for $183,000
How important is a standout colour and what value do you place on being a very early production example? The answer was ‘$183,000’ in the case of a 1972 LJ Torana GTR XU-1 with a period race history that had been stored for 24 years when it was offered with ’no reserve’ at Shannons Melbourne Autumn Classic Auction on April 29.
The result for the XU-1 was indicative of the high demand for Australian classics at the auction, which grossed $3.3 million in total sales, with 90 per cent of all lots sold on the hammer.
In other strong results for home-grown heroes, a beautifully-presented 1969 Holden HT Monaro uprated with a 383ci V8 engine and corresponding mechanical and cosmetic upgrades, sold for $107,000 and a true survivor – a two-tone 1960 Holden FB Holden special sedan in lovely condition – brought $26,000."
Ultimately if you sell a car immediately, you’ve probably priced it too low. OTOH I have seen some rare unusual cars for sale, on the market for 4+ yrs, at a reasonable price. You ask - what’s wrong with it?
About 7yrs ago, I saw an ok VC wagon for $13k. I thought he was nuts. He eventually sold it for about 5k. But now it’d be worth 13k again....
$$$$$$ are the main item
Selling quick priced cheap
No rush to sell price a bit high
Attached and not wanting to sell Stupid ===$$$$$
Recently broke my left elbow bad(surgery screws etc) so sold manual ranger I had, no rush so priced a bit high on carsales no joy dropped a bit 2>3 phone calls a day sold quick. Watching so auto rangers i'm keen on the market seems slow atm and a big turn over
despite a lot of the bad deals found on this site, i have managed to find some decent deals on it for certain car brands which includes Holden and HSV. now as to whether it is trickery could be another story. are there honest people who are just wanting to sell their car on this site?. i am willing to think so.
