EA for $5990!

I was reading through our local newspaper and spotted a 91 EA Aniversary CFI GL Sedan for $5990 at a car dealer. I laughed and said he was dreaming! I was so curious as to the ridiculously high price tag that I went over and had a look at it. I got over there and saw the outside and thought yeah it's in good nick, paint was all good, no dents. Looked inside, console had started to perish a bit being an EA appart from that good nick. Then I looked at the K's!!! It only has 82,000k's on it!!!! That has to be some sort of record, I didn't test drive it or anything, but has anyone come across an EA with so few k's on it?

1992 AXII Telstar TX5 Ghia

121kW 2.5L DOHC V6 in a car that weighs 1100kg's and looks like a 4 banger from the outside......SLEEPER!

1988 EA S Pak 3spd CFI.....Soon to be a 250rwkw HSV eating machine.
Latest update......MPFI!!

I work at a ford dealership, and we recently traded an EA Fairmont Ghia on a new BA. I asked the boss if he wanted to sell it to me for a parts car like the previous one and he told me to get stuffed. I asked why. He told me he sold the car new to this guy in March 1990 and it has had so little driving on it the Speedo had, and this is no bulldust, 37,000 k's on it. The car sold for 8 grand! can you believe it. This guy had two cars, and the falcon was only used for trips to melbourne, once every three months! I wish I got a photo of it for proof to you all, however, I may be able to swing the Vic Roads slip that the boss got for proof of k's, and its genuine. The car was so little used that the battery was always dead when he drove it. Me personally I think that it can't be good for the car. Its service record was up to date also, every 3 months regardless of k's it was serviced as according to the book. Shocked the hell outa me.

Drive it like you stole it.....

I saw an 86 Magna advertised by a dealer in the local newspaper a while ago with 15,000 K's on it! Pretty amazing, they wanted the absolute top dollar for it as well, more than double what the average 86 Magna is worth.

The least i've ever seen on an old car was about 35,000 kays on a 1976 Toyota Cressida. I was walking past and I saw this shiny red thing out of the corner of my eye. I'm not interested in Toyotas, but hell, when I saw this thing I went and had a gawk.

It had plastic from factory on the door linings, 'Factory Air' sticker on the front window and a sticker recommending it be serviced by Toyota.

Lowest I've come across for an EA is 60,000. It was in the Trading Post last year advertised for $12k. 6 Seater, 3.9 CFI. Go figure!

Saw Australia's worst roadgoing EB today... some guy had it advertised in the paper for less then $1000 so went and had a look-see.

The car was still on the road... surprisingly....

The bumper bars were held on by self taping screws, every panel had rust in it, the roof was crumpled down in some places, and rust around the windscreen and boot. Surprisingly the CFI motor still works seeing that I opened up the coolant bottle which was completely empty except for rust stains. The doors seemed to have dints and damage, the battery terminals corroded, the indicators cracked and with water condensation in them. The interior was battered and the centre console deterioiating. There were probably another 100 things wrong with it.. but I stopped looking.

Owner wanted to know if I wanted to take it for a drive... but I felt too sorry for the poor car.

RIP.... Poor EB

Friend of mine owns a 1965 Ford XP Fairmont, with 34000miles. He bought it in 1982 with 31000miles. Lucky if he drives it 100miles a year. Car is in MINT condition and always garaged.
