I couldnt agree more that a car like that is made to have a lot of fun in, like i said ive had my fair share, got a 90 300zx in the garage in need of some TLC as my witness :p but i wouldnt expect anyone to pay much for a car thats been flogged... if the car is in good enough condition for the price then it will sell naturally... i was just pointing a few thoughts of mine out (not trying to step on toes or be a know it all which from re-reading my posts it looks like!!)

cheers

The trouble with a lot of people like this is they don't know the difference between driving a car hard and mechanical abuse.. I used to know a guy who used to constantly do stuff like drive his entire trip not higher then second gear (keeping the engine in its powerband apparently, embarrasing being in the car too - Silvia with a f@rt). The car constantly would see the redline when stone cold and I would never touch a car like that.

Such a nice car, sad to see it being treated like Sh**t,
by the way I had to laugh at this, that the seller put on it

Approx $30.000 + invested on this car!

Damn it s**t me when people say they have "invested" money in their car.

"Investing" in an E series falcon is a pretty piss poor investment indeed.

Yeh the chassis was pretty old, used to be a company car before that... Like someone said its been in the shop a few times.
Was a nice car, got me into Fords lol
Dont get me wrong it still is a nice car but I personally wouldnt touch it with a barge pole, especially since this bloke from Cowra has had it.

Only if it's a T3. Series 1 and 2 are declining in value.

EL GT would give a return. Not sure about EB GT. Doesn't seem that an FBT will.

cars that give returns are as rare as hens teeth and by the time you can be sure it will be one to apreciate in value they are worth a mint :) even ts50's will depreciate, albiet at a very miniscule rate.

saw a t3 ts50 for sale here in vic, 85000ks on it, manual, black, new rims and 3 inch exhaust (no headers) for $30k.

I weep every night at the fact I cant generate the income to give this amazing peice of machinery a good home. Its got my name all over it but without job no can buy ><

I have an original XC Sundowner. In the words of the girl in reception of Ford headquaters "That's as rair as rocking horse sh!t!)

That is a car that increases in value.. there were only 350 or so of them ever made. (XC sundower was kind of a trial run to prepare for the XD version).

values only go up on those things..

would prefer a GTHO though to be honest.

Granted it has gone up in value, but what was it worth 10 years ago??? Sweet FA!!

All the baby boompers are retiring with a wad of cash, they're pushing up the prices...

Example, that phase III that went for High $600's... it wasn't a pedigree race car, had 5 years missing on service history and had 2-3 parts that were fake (parts weren't that spesh, but still!) ... 4 months earlier a phase III with racing pedigree went for $450,000 immac and all parts and history...

But all this in the last 10 years...

My point... 1970's vehicles are worth a packet because they were ICON vehicles, and even then it took 30 years for prices to go upwards!

be verrrrrrrry patient, otherwise invest your money...
