That car looks like a true bargain, I would be running over to auto style and throwing down the 36K if I had it spare

Call me pessimistic but if something seems too good to be true, it generally is.

I would still be checking it out if I had the cash though.

Just a little bit of info that got thrown my way through a friend in the trade when making an enquiry about this car. I have found out that this car was originally a recovered stolen vehicle and has had a parcial respray done in the last two weeks. Just wanted to put that out there for anyone considering of buying the car. I myself thought it was to good to be true...

Plus the fact that it has not sold yet should also be of concern.

If it was stolen and recovered in Victoria, it will have a new number stamped onto it by the police/rta. I walked away from a VL Calais years ago in the same situation.

Stolen recovered wouldn't bother me if it's all there

So what about if the car was still bent or if it was recovered out of a creek or a river, personally I would not be willing to take the chance and find out the hard way.

It wouldn't bother me either, as long as its in good condition ie the quality reflects the price. Even if it needed a bit of work, its still a good buy at this price.

That's the chance you take. If its sold with known history and the car drove as good as I wanted it to without any signs of being through hell I'd consider it. I can handle knowing the car was rebuilt if done correctly.
If it needs work then no I wouldn't.

I have had a commodore of mine stolen and I got it back while living on the gold coast, unfortunately it was never the same, not saying this one is the same but they don't recover we'll from being thrashed as they are fairly fragile.

Certainly is a big kick in the guts.

On a side note how does a group A get stolen then recovered, surly it would have been stored in a way that made it difficult to steal?? And if it was stolen with the knowledge of what it was (Group A) would it not have been stolen to be stripped??

Anyway close inspection would be required I would have thought before purchasing.

Just because it's rare doesn't mean it was locked up. Both my walkinshaws spent years in open storage, just covered and under a roof. Only the last 6 months one was locked up.
And just because it's locked up doesn't mean it's safe from being stolen, thieves will try anything. Some steal to strip, some are ***** and don't know what they've stolen, some know and trash it anyway.

If I could convince my wife (and myself) that this VN or any VN is worth $36990 plus transportation costs it would be in my garage in January. But unfortunately that won't happen

Had an email from autostyle which is the car yard that is selling it. here is the reply today:

"This vehicle does not come with any service history or books and yes was damaged and repaired in 1994".

With all the stories going around about this car no one can be sure of what has happened to it since 91
