    Looks ok but he certainly hasn't done a $14k job IMHO. The door chrome trim doesn't look like lines up with the tub trim either?

    Thats a pretty common mod around here....The ones based on the vp look the best to me ...Only thing close that holdens made was the commodore royale sold in NZ but that only came in sedan.....

    I did look at this one as my older lad wants to change from his Acclaim sedan to a ute with much the same type of parentage (eg. one ownertype car).

    but yes you are absolutely spot on about being out of touch and especially with this one being the very lowest of base level car and it being bought originally without the auto and having the manual as a cheaper orientation and also being a straight Holden Ute and not a Commodore due to the non colour coded bumpers.

    This one should be no more than $3500 tops. but as it's a business flogging it, they're trying it on at top money and will eventually come down when they can't sell it at their stupid price point.

    Oh golly gee !!! I didn't look any further than the cover picture and it wasn't until I looked at the 2nd and 3rd photo that it blew me away.

    A lot of work gone into this one that's for sure, bet it rattles and squeaks big time though.

    Yeah width wise and shape wise fitting that dash into and old bus would have been real tricky surely. I don't particularly like it though I think some of the work is bodgy, like the wheel I think it looks like arse. Doors trims are doing nothing for me either.

    Have communicated with this guy and Losh you are spot on. He is deluded thinking a entry level base Holden Ute is worth 6K, regardless of the K's on it. The overall condition is rather average, especially the rear load area that looks like it's been to hell and back and has had all that plastic chucked in to cover up that there's no paint in it at all.

    Sometimes I just wonder how people get through the day with their way of thinking.

    Yeah mine is a better model with better features and in better cond all round, plus performance upgrades VS-lover. But try and get anymore than $2k I'd be dreaming and in reality I'd probably get $1500. 6 cyl VR/VS utes just ain't worth anything to anyone but the owner.

    What would a new ute cost or late model used,for example ve?
    Then how reliable would it be?
    So maybe yours is worth more than you think?

    That first ute is worth 3k max - more like 2k though since it's half finished with bad paint
