Well redbook says $1500-$3300.

Depends how many kms you've got on it, some pics would help. I reckon you'll be lucky to get $4000 mate, and that's assuming it's rego'd for a decent amount of time (6 months+).

I reckon you pull more than about $3000 your doing pretty well, as I've seen plenty of VR's going for less than $1800 these days. You can get really decent VT's for $4000.

Sorry mate, just my opinion, but your best bet is a "fully hectic" p plater and his "homeys".

Manuals seem to hold their price better providing they''re in good condition. If you find the right buyer who has spent months looking for a decent 2nd gen manual he might be willing to pay a bit extra for a good one.

$4500 will be a bit steep, though it sounds like a nice car with some work done, that's dipping into VX territory.

I'd say $2500 to $3500 tops but thats in tassie... the cars here always seem to go for more then in other states.

I would tend to think the opposite, there is a lot more choice here, $3500 will put you in a 5 speed VT.

Yeh i was heading into $3000 $4000 tops mark. it only has 200k and its just had new pushrods and rockers in it aswell. and being a factory manual it hasnt been converted from auto (proper wiring and manual computer etc).. its nice old couple owned it before me so its been looked after.. il try get some pics up of it asap. forgot to mention it has clear indicators and altezza rear lights but thats not much just thought throw it in.

Sounds like you have done some good work on it, and being a manual is a big plus. You havent mentioned km or body condition. Assuming both of those are good its maybe worth $3500 to the right buyer in Brisbane but that buyer may never come.. $2500 is maybe more like it.. if the ks are high or it looks like crap it can only go down from there..

EDIT: oops you posted the k's while I wrote that lol... I think $2000-$2500 in Brisbane.

Yep, i'm with this dude ^ even if its a nice car, its still almost 20 years old, still a base model VR at the end of the day. never know though, you might find the right buyer (less intelligent p plater) and get a lot for it.
