Description[INDENT]

I've decided to put my series 2 VL Calais Turbo up for sale.... i was planning on spending big dollars to transfer it into a Show Contender but something else has come up that i now require those same funds for..

This car is totally genuine, totally unmolested in ANY way, NO MODIFICATIONS to this vehicle whatsoever. This car was owned by a retired gentleman who serviced this car every 5k... The car has a genuine 214,000klm on it and drives like a dream... although i dont drive it.

The car DOES need a Paint job... no two buts about it, Its asteroid silver & this colour does have a habit of fading, the roof has some minor surface rust, body its very very straight, the left rear quarter has had a light repair in its time & its also missing the front LHS chrome trim atop of bumber, other than that the calais is tip top!

The interior is amazing as photo's will show.

I replaced the head when i bought it.... the car has only done about 30 kilometers since my purchase.

It has all books, still has working ORGINAL HEAD UNIT fitted, has spare keys & remote locks.

This car is an UNTOUCHED survivor & will suit someone that wants an all time classic original &/or the perfect base to create a big dollar show scene contender which what was my intention..... & still will be if it doesnt sell... it just may take that dream a little longer.

Why am i asking $17,500 for a 27 year old car you may be thinking..... well, you just dont find them like this anymore.

ok.. lets get this straight once a for all.
Only this morning & from someone posting the above trading post ad, was i able to make further enquiries.

I did what i had to do to get that mobile number to call the person who listed the ad.

Rang the number, it was answered by a woman, had a chat with her.... SHE & HER HUSBAND used that ad to sell the car to the guy that i bought it from( he told me a complete bull**** story about how he came about the car which she confirmed this morning) he had the car for about a week before listing it... i wanted a vl turbo at the time & hastily bought it..... this guy made a very quick back after i now know the real price that he paid for it... i paid double...BUT... it was what i was willing to pay for the car...SIMPLE..... a person can sell & buy a car for whatever they like.... regardless.... I mean the VK GROUP A Group3 thats in my avatar sold for $227,000 & i only paid $30 grand for it..... if people want a certain something, they'll pay a certain price for it.

The lady was very apologetic of what has happened as she & her husband were under th impression the ads had been removed..... & to these other pricks that have put up another ad on gumtree trying to rubbish me.... BOYS... TAKE A GOOD HARD LOOK AT YOURSELVES... AND FIND SOMETHING BETTER TO DO WITH YOUR TIME OTHER THAN LOOK FOR CONSPIRACY THEORIES!!.

The price is $12, 500 with a RWC or $12,000 Without.... THE END.

Car is originally from greensborough that was owned by a 80 year old! I know this because I gave him my number if he wanted to sell one day! He said he had a lot of other numbers of people that were interested. I think the neighbor bought it and then resold it straight away!! Price is now steep though for condition!

So you originally had the car up for 17,500 but now have it for 12,500. Why the 5 grand drop?

Both of you are correct the owner lived in Yallambie, he was not 80 years old though lol.

I know that car was hit in the rear RH QTR area & was a insurance write off-This is the truth 100%, Owner got paid out $5,000.00 kept car/wreck-not much wrong with it-really, just no panel beater could be bothered repairing it and the owner on sold it.

I had a laugh when I saw it sell on Ebay for $7,800.00 it was the same car with engine just degreased, Yes it was fairly original but very worn out in my opinion.

Anyway let the new owner sell his car.
