Sounds like it could be a bargain. Depends on the condition of the engine when you open it up.

Cheers

im afraid any old car wont be a bargain no matter what the price, as over the next few years you'll find how much of your money it has sucked from you, especially if you take pride in your car and want it looking and running well

the amount of coin ive spent on my car on little and big things, couldve went to a BF xr6t :(

if it all good apart from the gasket then its a pretty good score, pics?

i scored an EF XR6 5spd, 180,000km, heavy duty clutch, brand new standard clutch and a full ford premo sound system for $1200 the other week, was pretty happy at that price.

nope, no catch. just came from a mate that needed money.
it goes great as is but i have an AU XR6 VCT engine to go in it with 80,000km on it that i got for $900 so for bugger all over 2 grand it should be a sweet work bus.
