Re: Brothers Bargain

For that cheap it's probably got a blown head gasket, or serioius problems you haven't uncovered yet. When people sell cars at unrealistic cheap prices there is usually an underlining reason. Usually people don't sell a good car thtats mechanically good, but when it starts shitting itself, most people start advertising a sale.

Re: Brothers Bargain

even if it is a head gasket, $1000 on repairs is still going to make it a bargain!

Re: Brothers Bargain

head gaskets arnt all that bad(for me anyway)... its only expensive if you get someone else to do it. the one you really have to watch out for is the auto trans, you cant really fix that yourself. but at that price, its still a bargain with $1000 in repairs.

Re: Brothers Bargain

Nah he was pretty lucky, a friend of ours is a subaru dealer. They offered this guy a trade in price and he took it. It is mechanically A1 and was serviced every 10 thousand by that same dealer.

Re: Brothers Bargain

Sounds like an average Price to me. E-Series cars are getting cheeper and cheeper all the time. My Old man is thinking of buying an ED for a workhorse. His mate is a Mechanic / Car Dealer and hes got 3 EB][s or EDs ready to go for under $3000 apparently. I see shitloads of them around for under a grand or next to nothing. Granted there probly stuffed but theres plenty of good1s out there!

Re: Brothers Bargain

That's a great price for a good condition 4 litre Falcon, let alone a Fairmont. Well done.

Mate I think you've got it all wrong...
EA's and EB 3.9's are cheap yes...but most of the time as soon as you hit EB2 or any thing above that in the classifields you will see a rather noticeable jump in sale price. And not being negative to EA's but we all know the reason for it.
$2,500 - Bloody awesome value for an EB2 Fairmont. :s6:
