Re: Possibly buying an EB Falcon
the only way to haggle a lower price is stand firm, but be prepared to walk away, there will always be another car.
5sp manual, hop in, and clutch through the gears and count, if you get to 5 + 1 reverse its 5 speed.
258k's is getting to be around normal for an EB
Cracked instument glass can be replaced but you will have to find a donor dash, good new is from gli to ghia the glass (plastic) is all the same.
See how the car feels, drive it like you own it, if it feels good your call, if it feels bad walk away.
Rust, check every where you can think of, under the doors, sills, guards etc.
well missing tape deck, I am guessing you plan on a better stereo.
Downside: you are getting a loan for a car you know already needs improvement and rego, dont forget insurance., make sure you get a road worthy/pink slip so you can transfer to your name without possible further hassle.
Upside: 5 speed manual EB and its a Ford.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
"So long and thanks for all the fish!"
