Boxy, without seeing the condition of the car but making a few assumptions thats its in reasonably good knick - it could probably go for 10-15,000 at least - you would need to find out but I don't think any original "GS's" actually came out with shakers but i could be wrong. Also is it still original block, original trim. original colour and paint? will all change its value etc. Need to check the build data with ford to verify the body numbers and if it was indeed a factory sunroof car - be careful its too easy to be fooled into buying something that looks gr8 but isnt what the ID plate says it is
good luck

wato,thanks for your reply mate and good advice,i had a quick look yesterday the 20th/dec and believe it to be very original,i know the bloke who owns it and he has only driven it twice as he is a long haul truckie,he said an older gent owned it before him,on inspection it has factory air,which i'm led to believe is quite rare,bathurst globes not sure if original??,it has l&r teardrop mirrors,36gallon tank,black trim all the right dash/wheel and no rust.i rang a bloke today who owns 3 genuinexygt phase 3's he said its worth $25,000 so i guess i will buy it your spot on the note mate.
thanks again...boxy

hey boxy, i have a friend with a XY 351 GS 4 speed in electric blue, and tip top show condition all numbers match, he wouldnt sell it for less than 30k.
But as mentioned, color and condition can change cars from 10k (ive seen a few) up to 30k plus

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.
