Advice on purchasing a T3 TS50.

I have found a blueprint 2002 TS50 for sale $38,000.

It has sunroof, 18" Wheels, Leather trim and all the other standard T-series features.

The car has only done 43,000 kms and its an Auto.

What do you guys think, are they expensive to insure.

Cheers
Stephen

Wtf!, Why move my post to this crummy folder?

Its got nothing to do with Gregory's, I'd never buy or service a car with them.

Thanks heaps.

Most likely expensive on insurance but I'd be happy to fork out the dosh for it.

If the 2002 model has the stroker engine, I can't remember, then hell yeah grab it. Too much fun.

Re: Advice on purchasing a T3 TS50.

mate its not a folder about gregorys, they sponsor the FPV section (this section) of the forums

i daresay your thread was moved here as it is about a tickford vehicle, and since tickford is now FPV (well sort of!) im guessing thats why someone has moved it here.

as for the price, its a good price, but there are cheaper ones around. There was a blueprint TS50 for sale on carsales.com.au a couple of weeks back with all the goodies (inc. brembos) and it was down for $34k. Cant remember the kays, think it was about 60

still a good price though! id buy it if i were you...although id be looking for a manual

Re: Advice on purchasing a T3 TS50.

nope this was definately a TS, there has also been a couple of TE's for as little as 30k and one that actually sold for 29k - absolute bargain

seems there must be a lot of people updating to new GTs and ford must be doing their usual thing and offering trade in figures...

IMO i wouldnt be changing from a T3 to a BA GT anyways...sure the GT is an awesome car, but i dont think its that much better, if any, than the T3

Re: Advice on purchasing a T3 TS50.

Thanks for the advice guys, Yeah I know this doesn't have direct link with the Gregory's dealership as such.
I just thought I wouldn't get the same number of replies as I would in the Aussie Falcon folder.

Anyway, the guy who's selling it had only done 26,000kms up until this year, but he now drives it to the bush and back everyday and has racked up 17,000kms since April this year.

Its the 5.6L 250KW AUIII TS50 by the way, do these come with Fairmont Options?

I know the earlier T-series came with Fairmont interior etc, but the T3 has that awesome body kit.
