hi all, i'm on the look out for an EB/D for a second car, as the mrs has claimed the EF. i was looking at spending no more than $3500-4000 for a tidy stocker. i haven't really been able to find anything half decent in that price range. but on the way home from work today i spotted this at a ford dealers:
EB 'S' 4.0l,
5SPD manual (my preferred choice of transmission)
electric windows front and rear
factory S pak alloys with good rubber
boot lip spoiler
s pak cloth interior
motor runs smooth, no bad noises/smoke etc
not a single scratch or mark on the car
they're asking $5250 dropped from $6000.
the k's seem a bit high, but everything sounds ok, and the car looks like it has been looked after real well. i'm just not sure if thats a good price, as i usually deal with 1970's falcons, and they are cheap as.
what do you guys think?
i was going to finance the car, so i can't really negotiate too much. it doesnt have a warranty, but they have to sel the car in roadworthy condition. but if i go ahead with it i'd get it fully inspected by someone such as the RAA. they check EVERYTHING. including the compression. it costs a bit but its worth it.
if i get the car, it'll get the 16' EF XR8 rims off my EF
You can do better, I picked up a EB2 with a RWC for $1500 just this week.
At the dealers near me there is 2 EB2's for $4000, These are autos mind you. If the car is in really, really good nick then it may be worth it.
Twin Cam EA falcon
SWB Ford Maverick
one of my workmates has this for sale:
EB XR6 auto,
ED XR front,
16x7 ROH milanos,
professionally lowered - about the same height as King "lows"
cat back exhaust,
new cd player + 6x9's,
factory "black pearl" paint
in pretty tidy condition, front bumper needs respray, and the power steer pump might need replacing.
he wants $6000, wont go lower.
i'm leaning more towards this car out of the two. is that a fair price for this car?
thanks heaps for your input guys!
