If the car has Rego and a RWC, good paint and is in good overall condition, but stock I think you could get anywhere up to $3000. Its hard to say though without seeing the car and not knowing where you're from.

I just had my VP converted to gas a few months ago and it runs very well on LPG. The guys who installed it fitted the filler behind the fuel door and integrated my dash so when I switch to lpg, my fuel gauge reads for lpg. It also only costs me about $30 a week to run now, which is much easier on m pocket.

I see them everywhere... They run ok on lpg... loose a little power but heaps better on your pocket...
