HQ GTS on EBAY>>

Hi there Holden people, I am interested in the following HQ GTS. What do you think the right price is and how much to fix the rust problems, etc? I have no idea, so appreciate your advice.
Cheers

I wouldn't pay 17g for it, it is way to dear considering the amount of work that it needs. rust repairs alone would run the car into 20g (bare minumum), add another 6-6.5g minimum for paint (we are already @ 26.5g) interior, bumpers, suspension, brakes, rechroming, zinc/cad plating, 35-45g+, no way!!!!!

But then again, some may pay that for it, but i personally, wouldn't.

Whilst 17 g's is a lot of coin (i paid 10g's for my HQ monaro), i think it is a brilliant example as it looks almost untampered with, a true original, which you just dont see much of these days. I would say that it would be a brilliant project for someone sufficient at paint and body as the trim looks good. Too expensive for me though, but by the time my coupe hits the road it will owe me plenty more than that i reckon!

Cheers, brenton.

I talked to Bogan tonight. His computer is dead and he won't be able to access the internet for a little while.

If you E-mail me your contact phone number, I'll pass it on to Bogan.

BTW, the HQ is in Kempsey, NSW.

Mate, don't even consider paying 17K for that, half the car is missing with rust. If you look hard enough you'll find a good one out there for a reasonable price, but he'll be lucky to get a bid I reckon, there's more rust in that one than metal. I owned one a few years ago, got it for 5k, it's on ebay now for 10k, but I wouldn't pay that much for it. I know, having owned it that it is all bogged in rear quarters, has had [Naughty Pottyword]ty paint preparation, so there's 10k for what will cost another 10k at least just to get it up to par, not original. I do miss it though! Take it easy, good luck looking.
