But as mentioned, color and condition can change cars from 10k (ive seen a few) up to 30k plus
sure is a nice car galaxyxr8 but arnt all fords??,going to sort out purchase 2moro,allready own a xwgt & tickford 2001 faimont v8 ghia & hopefully the gs,sound like a capitalist pig hey!!!,no just a humble ford nut.galaxy xr8 said:Sound's like a great car, if it is in good condition don't let it get away,it's not every day that you see XY GS's with 351 toploader's etc for sale,show us some pic's if you get her, cheer's.
Wato YOU SOUND LIKE A SWITCHED ON BLOKE!!,as far as i can see its very original see jeff's post.,still would like to know any info on these vehicles!! numbers etc,do they have the jg23 number on r/h shokie tower????,thanks again mate boxymrxrgt said:Sounds like a really good car Boxy, its hard to value things with so many variables plus the amount of repro stuff makes it hard to know how much of a car is actually genuine and how much has been added. The XY GS's have certainly come up in value since most of them have been turned into "fakers" so a good original car is hard to find. Good luck,sounds great - stick a picture up if you end up buying it.
BOTCH YOUR THE MAN!!,YES ANY CODES WILL HELP I KNOW ITS JG23 WHICH IS A FALCON 500,I NEED TO KNOW THE OPTION CODES OR DO I GET THEM THROUGH FORD BY TELLING THEM THE SIDO NUMBER OF THE CAR???botch said:<----- YAY LONG LIVE THE YELLOW OCHRE GS'es
BTW there is a website somewhere that should have all the trans / trim & color codes.
i can get them off my xy gs (facotry yellow ochre) 6cyl, 2v, toploader, blak trim if you want the codes to compare.
