FALCON ED,XR6,5SPD MANUAL, 270,000kms, 4 months rego, extractors, Redback 2-1/4ins exhaust, King Dragon air filter, very dark factory tinting, pwr steer, air cond, CD player, alloy wheels, unwanted sale -$8900

The guy said the car is in very good condition. Just wanted to know if this is good value for money or should i bring the price down a bit more because of the high kms. Also how many kms can the tickford engines usually last for. Thanks heaps anything u can tell me will be greatly appreciated

Menco, sounds alright... but 9k can get you a long way.
I think 270,000 is a bit high for the dollars, there is no way the paints going to be shmick unless its been bingled.

I picked up my EF XR6 man for 10k with 190,000.
Cheers, Casey.

No... 270 aint bad, falcons can do twice as many no probs, tho the price is a bit to high for the kays... i got mine for 9k... http://www.fordgallery.com/showgallery.php/cat/500/ppuser/13500
very similar to the one mentioned but lower kays...... ohhh yeh does it have the momo wheel too? i wouldnt worry bout the kays too much... engine can be rebuilt if u are worried but i wouldnt bother!!! have it checked by a trusted mechanic and if all is sound and u like it go for it!!! theyre a great car!!! best of luck, cheers

remember... u dont have to buy it if u think they r askin too much... u can only try, saying that 8 k isnt too bad, things to bargain him down with tho...
pay cash! usually helps with the bartering...
the kays are a bit high...
does it have the momo wheel???
rego due in 4 mnths... worth a shot!
what condition is the tyres/brakes in?

best of luck! cheers

um i wouldnt have a clue if it has the momo wheel. I had a look in the redbook and they said 5,700 - 7,800 is what they r worth. Ill do my best to get him down sayin that ive talk to ppl about it and wat they said if he wants the cash then he'll have to accept my offer. Im not too sure on the tires and brakes or anything else i live 600 or so kms away from him so yeah. And ofcourse im not goona decide to buy it until ive had racq check it out and had a good look myself

The momo wheel was a 1000 dollar option when new and adds about 500 bucks to overall price of the cars now... if it hasnt got one its definetly not worth 9k, not even 8k... tell him that!!! maybe u might be betta off holding off the sale and waiting for a better one thats more realistically priced to pop up??? sounds like a better option cause i think he sounds like he wants way too much

you could always put a manual box in an auto xr, at least there's plenty of the autos for sale!!!

It works fine and as 'Supa ROO' said, there are plenty around.
There aren't however plenty XR6 manual ECU's around, as to do it properly you will need it. The rest of the bits, such as the box itself, pedal box, flywheel, etc, is easy enough to chase up.

If you're not in a hurry, I personally would wait a few weeks and then approach the fella who has the XR6 you're currently looking at, who knows, the longer you wait, the cheaper you'll get it. Time is the key.

It sounds like you want it badly,one piece of advice dont go and just buy the first one that you see take your time and look around and then compare it to others,there's no need to rush if you can wait and you will usually save $$$$$$ too.
