Default AU Series 3 manual XR8

Looking for an AU series 3 manual XR8.

Blueprint and Narooma are the only colours considered.

Must have less than 200,000km and be well looked after and in excellent condition.

Let me know what you have

How much are you looking to spend if you find the right car?

You are correct, god damn, at that price looked clean and wouldn't matter if you spent 5k fixing it up.

Thanks for keeping me posted mate, just subscribed to my own thread so I can get instant notification

Thanks mate, already spoken to him, won't budge on 15k, crunched the numbers and would be an 18k car after getting here and rego etc. Too risky as I can't actually eyeball the car, seen a fair few cars with those kms hiding some epic rust. If it was on the east coast i'd be there looking yesterday.

Hey bud that was me you messaged.
It has zero rust,no dents,it has stone chips to the bonnet and a couple scratches,thats it.
First thing I checked was boot struts for rust and under the parcel shelf
I know how hard it would be to find another one like mine in the condition and low km that's why im firm on my price.
I know you are after a factory manual,mine isn't factory manual,its engineered/permitted for the box change for insurance etc.
I ended up deleting my ad,just had so many timewasters.
Ill advertise it next year some time.
If you wanted it inspected and you knew/trusted someone over here (maybe from this forum)id be more than happy for them to check it out.

Hey mate, cheers for the reply. Yeh i'm looking for something original, unfortunately non original manual is a deal breaker for me.

Gumtree is difficult sometimes but surprisingly the last 4 cars i've sold have been on gumtree, just got to work out the serious buyers from the dreamers.
