Looking for a nice gq for my mate - these things are selling like hot cakes!

Seems like its getting hard to buy a nice tidy gq around this area, thinking of putting mine on the market while the going is good.

Know what u mean just bought a new GQ its nice but paid top dollar. The Queensland floods and other storms are the problem, a lot of patrols and cruisers are being snapped up because so many got written off mine was done with a big storm that hit Canberra in January paid to much for mine but i needed to swap all my gear over before the insurance company took it. Some how all my assessories got taken off my policiy 2 years ago and didnt realise it but at least they gave me time to swap stuff over.

Yeah - trying to find a nice tidy clean one, RWC and registered, thats not too extreme for a first fourby. Also something that is not a cop magnet. Im trying to persuade him to get a mint stocker and put some tyres and sussy in it as that will be enough for the time being.

Had a absolute shmick TI lined up for 14 with excellent mods, but that fell through. :(

As i found 12-18 months ago when i went looking
Theres alot of crap out there
Anything thats decent are gone so quick
Even stuff i looked at around 10K were still sh*t
You will spent months looking,just like everyone else whos looking
Make sure ya mate has the funds sitting there,no gotta get the money when i find the car
Thats to late

It seems although i paid a bit for my 1997 TB42 GQ
I see lately that 1992 TB42 GQ are getting more
5 years older and over 100K more ???
Go figure

As I know, many patrols are shipped from Australia, Europe, Japan to UAE (Dubai) for body parts, engines, etc.

We go there to get cheap, very clean used parts. You can change the whole body if you want to!

Many people here build their own GQ (Y60) patrols, so I might advice you to buy what's available then change and fix whatever you want. Don't miss the fun and don't rush!

I bought mine (1997, TB42E) for about 4200$. It's a great deal, I know ^_^ but maximum price for GQ (Y60) are less than 9000$, most of them are between 4000-1500$, so they're everywhere! Check if you can import any from Dubai.

Good luck.

If your really looking for good deals, you also need to look interstate.

My GQ and GU came from interstate as it is a very small market if your stuck looking local, specially if you are looking for something specific.

I bought an 89 Mav from ACT, which has over 500,000km on the clock... I flew up to ACT, checked it out, fell in love and drove it down. In the process of getting it ready for VIC reg now.

The engine just simply does not feel like it's had a half million kays.. The guy was meticulous with his maintenance and it just took me through the High Country this weekend without a prob!! Do look interstate mate... definitely worth it!

Kind Regards,

Zako

I know its far fetched, but have some criteria for his truck:
Gq
Tb42, td42, maybe a 45
Good nick, more atz than mtz
250 ish or less
Sensible truck, not thrashed out wannabe comp truck.
Some accesories, uhf etc.

See what happens. I am going to add up all my receipts, but might put my truck up for sale. :)

I got a GQ ute 4.2 Diesel 2 weeks ago for $3200.

Its engine is perfect and like new, no leaks and very quiet and could probably do a lap around Australia. So some bargains out there.

The only advice I will give is if you want to get exactly what your after be prepared to travel. Myself and 3 of my mates all went 500+ kms to get the right one.

My mate will be selling his a tidy swb td42 mav soon so should be interesting what he gets.
