Is that a fair asking price without books/papers?

Reserve hasnt been met yet, so who knows what he wants for it. Says all original parts included, so maybe that means he has the original wheel

just taking a closer look at thoes pics on ebay, his HSV build plate dose not look Correct for the car.

As far as iam aware it Should be SV build plate not HSV for that car.

This is a build plate from a walkinshaw i photographed earler in the year and from memory from all other walkinshaws i have photographed and seen they are the same.



and his looks like that off a newer model HSV car.


Please corect me if I'am wronge,

Re issued build plates, does HSV do this?
Stolen are recovered vehicle?
Replica trying to be passed off as a real one..?

I have seen blank new style HSV plates on eBay a few times in the past year asking around $400.00.

With no books, the incorrect steering wheel shown, wrong type of build plate on the car. I don’t know what the story is I would just be very careful and check the every aspect of the car and find out its full history. And why does it not have these key items that make a walkinshaw what it is.

Why would you remove a great standard steering wheel and change it to that ugly looking thing?

That could be true cwreck, but would have been good to put it back on for the pics? would make it look better, and get less questions.

It doesn't look too good, with that build plate though.

Guys,

I know the person selling this car, he is a pretty honest bloke about things and a nice guy to boot. So I would direct questions to him as I'm sure he'll be happy to answer.

Apparently the car has been verified and HSV plate re-issued. Please don't ask me about this because I really don't know the car - never seen it in person.

The only other thing I know is that it's still for sale and they are relisting it with more details and photo's as people have been asking.

Also for guys wanting to get into a Walky whilst you still can, the reserve is realistic. He has had so many inquiries that the phone has been off the hook! Including people travelling interstate.

Cheers,
Dave.

It surprises me why a car, like this, can't have 250 spent on detailing. What a difference it would make to the overall presentation.

VERY TRUE-WHEN IT COMES TO RE-SALE IT MUST BE BACK ON -

LOT OF QUESTION'S NEED TO BE ASKED BEFORE HANDING A LOT OF MONEY ON THESE CAR'S THESE DAY'S

In my eye's i would rather buy it the way it is and rough-the worst thing would be to see it looking good then u see this and that later down the track.

don't get me wrong it's not bad for it's age

u see car's these days at 35-60,000 kays in worst condition-
