i would just try & find the best one I could & worry about wheels & kit etc later but thats just me
I would have to agree with Mr Jucy on this one, but then again, its a personal preference thing, and if you are happy with the kit and wheels, then go for it.
The problems that I am aware of include,
Head gasket, bolts tend to deteriate with poor coolant,
Auto Transmision cooler part in radiator tends to leak into the
coolant section. Causing reduced Transmission fluid levels.
(Check the condition of the coolant, check for transmission oil in coolant etc).
Remember, the EF2 does not have a Transmission Dipstick (Doh!)
Also power steering pump can leak fluid.
And Airconditioning compressor has been known to have problems, and need replacing (Early EF's supposedly fixed in EF2, but worth while checking anyway)
If it has a Towbar, check for a Transmision oil cooler, otherwise, the transmission may have had a hard time.
Also with that many K's, the shocks would have been worn, and will need replacing. (If original)
Dont let the above deter you though, these problems affect all EF's, not just the Ghia. Apart from that, these are very good rides, are cheap to insure (for what you are getting), have a kick a@@ stereo, XR6 motor, LSD, etc etc....
But then Im probably telling you nothing you already know !!!
Cheers and happy motoring !!!!!!
