When your talking about cars that old it comes down to condition and if its a "rare" car ie a police pursuit or the like.

how long is a piece of string?

Cars are only worth what people are willing to pay for them - so things like body condition, interior condition and of course motor (choice) and condition pay a part.

Up until a few of years ago the XA/XB/XC sedans were as cheap as, even the V8's could be picked up roadworthy for $1000 to $1500. Now there prices are on the rise and some are over the top. XD's are heading the same way if its a factory V8 especially a manual then I doubt the prices will drop IMO.

Older cars can be safer bets as far as resale goes,xd's are overdue for some respect,and will start to go up I think.

Just going by Adelaide trading post prices, XD 6 cyl start around $300 about 750 for a good solid car, V8's I've seen for less that 500 up to about 2 k.

I test drove an xd about 3 months ago, 302 C4, on lpg, body ok but could do with paint, interior shot, 1 month rego - knocked him down from 850 to 600 bucks but never ended up buying it....

I wouldn't go for a XD personally, even though I've owned one for the past 12 years. It all depends on what you want out of a old skool car, is it going to be a daily driver or a weekender? If its going to be a weekender I'd go for a XA,B,C, up to 1976 that way you can put it on club rego and only pay a 3rd of the V8 rego every year and all you have to do is join a club to get it.

About 2 years ago XD's had hit rock bottom in their resale value. The V8's are starting to limb but the 6 cyls are still hovering around rock bottom for the time being. Once they go up in value then XE's and XF's will follow suit.
