What's an XC Fairmont coupe worth?

I'm a bit embarrased considering my post in the MM replica thread considering the relativel unavailability of falcon coupes.

I went for a bit of a bike ride today as I was bored and found saw an XC coupe sitting by the side of the road about 500ms from my house :-), no rego, cobwebs on tyres etc.

I was thinking of perhaps asking the present owner if he/she wants to sell it.

As far as I can tell it looks good rust-wise (non visiable in the nasty areas), got a 351, t bar auto ( a minus) and looks okay, not great but its got potential. Paint has gone off and is shit over the whole top of the car but you can't have everything right?

Any idea of what would be a good price for a vehicle of this nature?

3-4 thousand maybe...? thats if there isnt much rust. Then again ive seen fairmont coupes in Unique Cars sell for $6500 in wrecker condition so theres the broader end of the spectrum for you.

I was thinking around that number as well, that's what I would be willing to pay if it could be registered with minimum effort.

$6500.. tell him he's dreaming :-)

I'd say up to $5000 if it's a factory 351 & the rust is easily fixable.

Believe it or not there were TWO XC fairmont coupes in that price range in the same shitezer condition. One was the aforementioned 6500 the other was for 6000 and was in similar condition. Go figure...

By the sound's off it, if it's a vehicle that's just sitting there and has been for a while, no reg, rust, the motor is probably seized, I wouldn't pay any more than $1500, but we really need to see pic's to make a judgement.

I guess there are 2 schools of thought here..

1) People thinking with hearts = too much money paid for old car :-)

2)People thinking with head = right money paid for car or movement to another vehicle.

I am definately of the latter group, I left a letter in the person's mailbox haven't heard from them. Will leave another one in a months time so if I hear something then all well and good. If not then I'm not bothered and my money stays happily in the bank.

Re: What's an XC Fairmont coupe worth?

I remember there use to be a XB Coupe near me, was dark blue, dual exhaust, 351, etc and the owner left it growing moss in the front yard, i asked him once a week for a year to sell it but he wouldnt and left it there, then sold it to a wreckers for $800 (Friend owned the wreckers). Hope you have more like Thebow! and yea id be offering between $1000-$1500 first, maybe they have no idea what it is?

Re: What's an XC Fairmont coupe worth?

Go over there one day on the weekend or something and start a "I noticed you have a..." conversation..

See if he is intererested in selling. It could be one of two things...

1. a project car that is being worked on

2. a project or old car that may have been worked on, but ran out of time/money

If it is the latter and the guy is married, he will probably sell it to you in a few days. Leave your name, number...whatever...
