Great car but not old enough yet to attract that sort of money. In 5 years time maybe, but more like 10. Know of a VS acclaim with 40,000km it had new tyres as they would not supply roadworthy. with new tyres and roadworthy selling private they got $2500.

But some of us remember HQs like that and thought, why buy that when you want to bomb it anyway.

Very nice car, I'd own it.
The car was bought 24 years ago in Miranda, Sydney.
The seller is in Perth. That is a 4,000km journey from where the car was bought.
The remaining 6,500km on the odo averages out at 279km per year for 24 years. That's less than 6km a week.
Am I not trusting enough or should service records be requested to prove the mileage. It just seems a bit cheap in today's market to be genuine.(I know it's "only" a VP.

Its not just that its a VP, in my opinion they are/will be one of the more desirable models of the era in the future. The biggest issue this car will have selling for the asking price is that its not a V8. If that car was a V8 i think he would come close to getting what he wants. Still a nice example either way.

looks in great condition - probably should be in a museum at those kms - the problem with the VP is its age...they are now at an age where their value is very very low and need to move to the 30 year age mark or more as the values climb again...so now is possibly a good time to get a very good low km example at a very low price...red book value is 1-2.5K...so there must be excellent examples around for much less than this one? albeit not with 10K on the clock...I wonder what this 900km HZ Kingswood eventually sold for?..an article I read suggested the daughters were selling it and one valuation at the time was $10k http://www.carscoops...
