    2007 svz ute
    Hi forum,
    Just wondering how much my ute is worth . I have a 2007 SVZ Ute with 210,000 kms done. Its auto, no rego, no RWC. It has rear dent and a few more, scratches here and there but fixable all under $500.

    I got it off a mate who was a tradie and didnt take care of the interior all that well. There's work to be done to get it back on the road such as front engine mounts, rear brake paids, new steering wheel, front fog lights, fuses, ignition barrell, immobilizer system sometimes makes it hard for me to start the car up sometimes. Has a sports exhaust which sounds great.

    Some photos uploaded to imgur.

    Just wondering how much i should its worth? It's a long term project of mine and i'm considering whether to sell it off or keep

    [QUOTE="zeezbrah, post: 3001234, It has rear dent and a few more, scratches here and there but fixable all under $500.[/QUOTE] 500 bucks it would be a quick bodge up for that, surely. Have you got a price or is this doing it yourself?

    Got a quote from a panel beater nearby he said between 400-1000 depending on how i want it done but fixing the dents is the last thing on my things to do. it needs mechanical work. drives fine but not safe to drive

    just looking for opinions on how much i can sell it for without doing anything let me know what you think cheers

    Hmm...redbook says

    Private Price Guide $7,800 - $9,800
    *Trade In Price Guide $5,300 - $7,300
    *Average Km 240,000 - 360,000
    *Price When New $30,990*Price Guide (EGC)

    Unsure if i should fix up or not.

    How much am i looking to spend if i take the ute to get the following things done for a rwc

    rear brake pads
    rear discs
    ignition barrel change
    front engine mounts
    engine service
    transmission service
    timing belt

    afaik timing belt is still the original not sure if it has much left before it snaps

    Slap $3k on it as is and get it off your plate.

    By the time you spend the money to fix it you will be invested a lot more than what it is worth if you're looking for a fix and sell flip. Also, there is no belt in the motor to be replaced.

    It would appear that it needs a shedload of uneconomical repairs for it to acceptable to an unsuspecting buyer.
    I'd suggest bolting a new ute to the great sounding exhaust.

    With out reg and rwc you'll be lucky to get $1500 what would it cost to get it RWC? The type of people that would be interested in a 12 year old ute that requires work wont want to pay much with 12 months rego and a rwc $6k would be hard to get with dints and a rough interia

    I put up an ad for it on fb marketplace yesterday without listing the price and work to be done for it and got all sorts of offers, some 2k, some 4.5k, 4k. Took down the ad as i didnt want to sell it without knowing the actual price haha. I guess it costs about 1500 to get a rwc, . I'll fix up bit by bit , get it registered and keep it.

    Take the $4.5k as quick as possible . Remember facebook is full of tossers that tell bullshit. What have you been offered in person when someone has had a look at it?

    6 cyl yeah? The old Alloy Tech probably needs a lot spent on it. ECUs are pretty common fail point on VZs and SH one will probably fail as well. If it hasn't been looked after the engine is probably full of sludge and needs the sump, timing cover and manifold removed for thorough cleaning. Coils will be something else to fail unless they have been done. Need to go gen with those as most others fail pretty quickly.

    No belt but timing chains should be replaced while the cover is off. 500 bucks worth of panel work won't get much done. It will be closer to his higher price, once he has finished.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Decided to keep it.

    I see the same model, same color, similar kms for sale 8k-11k on gumtree, fb, carsales. Considering i got this almost free i'll just fix it up and use as a secondary vehicle.
