Been having a swimming pool installed over the last couple of days, and one of the workers asked me if I would be interested in selling my EL. After thinking it over, I thought why not. However, I have no idea what sort of money to ask. Below is a description of the car. Let me know what a reasonable figure would be, keeping in mind that cars are usually about a grand and a half more up here in cairns than down south.

late 97 EL GLI, white
130000 kms
Fairmont cluster, trip computer
Full fairmont interior with wood grain also
Lowered pedders suspension
Extractors and full red back exhaust
wade cam
Tickford manual ecu
Custom stereo door pods
alpine amp, splits and 2 12inch mtx subs (probably no HU cause i want to keep it)
Polished rocker cover, new overflow tank
EL GT snorkle
Full el tickford kit minus wing
17 inch ajr copies
EL GT gear boot
XR leather wheel

Spares with the car:
3:45 lsd center and gears
EF head, rockergear, cam and cover
Original cluster
2 spare original rims with good tyres

Overall, the car is in excellent condition, with only mabey 3 small "trolley" marks. I was thinking about somewhere round 9 grand.....

By the way, before you ask, pics will be up hopefully later today.



EL GLI, White
Power windows, Fairmont/Ghia door trims, converted to manual, extractors, zorst, wade cam, stereo, Tickford ECU, Tickford body kit, XR wheel.....

Mods to come: 3:45 LSD sitting in shed!!

With all those spares and whats already been the k's..i'd say give him 10k, then see what he wants to do. Bargain or what ever.

Maybe you should wait untill all the extra mods are in the car before selling :p Might change you're mind on the car hehe. Just a thought :)

Personally..i wouldnt sell :)

Sell any spares and anything that's good Tim, you don't get anymore for it.
I just sold the SVO for $6500 with RWC and kept anything that was good, deck, stacker etc.
To be honest 9k sounds like a lot, and i realise things are more expensive up there, but hey if he's prepaired to give you that much then i say sell it.
Come down here and buy a better car for less and drive it home lol.
I picked up my AU 5.0 Lane for 10k in EC, cars are cheap and if you get a good offer then jump on it.

No no no no no no no NO!

Enough said... But in truth you should be able to get $8-9000 up here. Plenty of young'uns will like to buy I think. As long as you can convince them that it is way better than an abused R32/3 Skyline GTS. Jeez... they are common as fleas.
