Not something you see every day

Driving past one of the local car yards recently and saw this sitting in a prominent position. To my uneducated eye, it looks pretty original except for wheels. but with only 6200 miles on the clock and split seams on the passenger seat, something did not look quite right. If anyone is interested it is in Gosford NSW.

Is it a bargain at $120000 like the sign says? I also wonder how much you save?

a 120k car wont be an impulse purchase. It would need some serious documentation to back up those claims. You'd have to be an idiot to take it on face value or what the salesman 'thinks' or is 'pretty sure'about.
I dont know heaps about monaros or their values ATM but if its an original 327. 120k sounds cheap. If its just another mock up; well, maybe thats expensive.
I'd say if it was legit, a used car dealer wouldnt have it on his lot. It would be straight off to auction and it would be well advertised.

I agree totally. If it's too good to be true, it usually is.

The VIN number starts with 80737KJ*****
I may be wrong, but I don't that the GTS code.
Engine number is T04175Y. Someone smarter than me will know where that came from.
Either way, if it is as good as it looks, I'd rather spend $120K on that than try and source a HK Monaro and build a GTS copy that standard for that money.
And yes, I'd drive it.

Old is good.

80737 means GTS not GTS 327.
T04175Y is the Tonawanda date code on a 327 engine and would be a US block.

Nice car though, probably worth closer to $90k but ry and buy and built a Monaro for the money being asked.

..in their right mind, would buy a Monaro from a car yard for $120,000. No one.
But it does look like a nice old bus..
