Spent a fair amount restoring this car so far, but work commitments require me to purchase a work vehicle, so this one must go. Needs to sell reasonably fast, so all reasonable offers will be considered. Any and all queries to the above email address, all queries will be answered to the best of my ability.

Edit: I understand that the k's are quite high, so I will take all offers seriously, however I have spent a reasonable amount restoring and upgrading the car with top quality hardware and as I'm hoping to use the sale of this car to help finance the next purchase, so I can't afford to lose too much. I'm not 100% certain about whether or not this is the original engine or transmission, but I've never had any engine trouble and I can vouch for the car's reliability. The car runs perfectly and sounds like a dream, having quite a lumpy cam sound and a nice deep exhaust tone, roars like a lion. If anyone is interested in a solid classic V8 project, this is a great foundation. I've had all traces of rust removed and the spray job is top notch, so the majority of the work is focused around the mechanical side of the car, great for any enthusiasts.

Anyone is welcome to make any serious offers, all will be considered. I'm happy to meet up around the Sydney area most afternoons if anyone wishes to see it.

nice looking car but that seems a little steep to be honest. i know you want as much money back as possible but the truth is, cars depreciates in value. no matter how much money you throw at it. like all those poofs with their lancers and civics.
i am in the market for a vh sl/e at the moment but i want a sedan. although i could end up buying taking a 7seater vl!

good luck mate

No doubt, it's unfortunate the k's are so high, otherwise it wouldn't be a problem.

Like I said, if anyone wants to make an offer, I'll consider it. I'm hoping I won't have to go down too much but I certainly won't be passing up a good offer. I priced it to give me a little haggling room, easier for me to drop down than to climb up.
