Depends on your realistic budget ???

Seen a complete and driveable SD33 n/a 4 speed wagon sell on evilbay last week or so
No hits at $750
Relisted at $500 buy now
Sold in 10 mins
But not a Turbo
Good rust free , good condition Turbo wagon
Youll be looking for a while

Let ya in on a secret
SSHH
Dont tell anyone , ok

A Turbo of anything SWB or LWB is generally worth more in pieces
Unless its absolutely immaculate
Even then its still probably worth more in bits

So IF its a tad ruff body wise and running gear is immaculate itll be worth in pieces 2K
Ya want find a cheapie,were all looking for em

What budget ya got in mind ???

Cmon don't give away all the secrets to buying and selling.. I reckon if ya want top notch sometimes you gotta do the work..

Doing engine and gearbox conversions so you end up with what you want..

Mate they are around,
Will have to be patient and don't be surprised to see a price tag over 8k if it's really good

Shark,
Didnt want to seem like letting the cat outta the bag regarding buying and selling
Just seems many think (not all)
That because a car has some age to it , that there worth bugger all
(Rust,dented,flogged,absolutely rooted, yeah maybe )
But something 30 year old with 100 % body and mechanical , not the case
Not just on the old patrols, but everything really

Most of us petrol heads know this, but the average joe doesnt

Just more a tip why the SD33T/5 speed combos are worth what they are

All good mate, sometimes people just want a specific part without purchasing a whole car..

I knew that with my budget that finding a great lwb would of been really difficult that's why I jumped at that chance of doing the ute, considering it's condition..

And you know what, I kinda like it:)

Theres always the odd 1 or 2 on evilbay
But it all depends how far they are from the buyer
I get sick (well totally p*ssed off ,really)of all the "No reserve" adds
That just get relisted and relisted
Its not "Ill just auction it till im happy with the price"
Put a friggin price on it to start with
IF ya want a grand, dont start at 99c "No reserve" then carry on ya only get $400
dj,
The one on evilbay for $500 the other week was in bribie in QLD
And the green wagon on there last week was 1/2 HR from me , again in QLD
So just a little bitta distance from you
I hope ya shouted "Coils" a few beers
