Gday, was trying to find some info on a car that im interested in and stumbeled onto this forum, it would be fantastic if i could get some help?
Firstly i know nothing about cars in general except what i like.
Now, my current mechanic (who happens to be a good friend of my fiance's father) has an old Falcon XY 500 out the back of his shop.
Its an auto sedan with the 351 cleavland, engine is running alright from what i can tell and have been told (i trust his dudgement and honesty).
Body is pretty straight with a bit of surface rust so it will need to be resprayed and all the crome is in good nick.
All the leather interior is intact apart from the center console need to be fixed back down.
The dash is pretty much screwed, o and it has 12 slotters.
Well thats about the limit of my knowledge.
Anyway, he would like to sell it and i am interested in buying it and fixing it up (with some help from my dad and a few mates)
Was wondering, what sort of price i should offer for it? what should i look for to make sure its worth buying and how much money roughly would i have to put into it to get it up to scrath?
any info would be fantastic and plz dont flame me for asking such a lame question, i love the look and the feel of the xy's and just want to own one for myself...
