    GTS Coupe 3 ... that needs saving

    Have to say, it's tempting to pick this up and restore it to how it should look ... Bloody cheap, but seems like a potential black hole to really sort it out (you'd think the owner would have priced it already?)

    Also just me or is the built place (the one with the VIN, not the model one) not like you'd expect (certainly different to another GTS for sale, although it's not a V3)...

    Also he says one wheel is odd - but it's the other three that don't belong on this car!

    My attempt at trying to price fixing this ... total guesses on all fronts, what you do reckon?

    • 4 proper wheels (assuming one on it is no good) - $2,000
    • New front bar, painted, fitted - $2,500
    • Fix massive whack in drivers side, assuming a "paintless" fix - $300
    • Decent clean up / detail inside - $500
    • Detail outside - $700
    • Re-do front seats which I assume are stuffed - $1,500
    • "F*** knows what else buffer - $5,000


    Total: $12,500

    Still cheap in total at $36,500 I suppose, if it turned out ok and that was it...

    I suppose even at the end of that it's still a car that's done 200,000km ... Ok I've talked myself out of it now

    If that car is as described, it should have already sold.

    Tend to agree if it all checked out.

    looks like he has given it a decent whack if the front, which makes me then think why there are no under bonnet pic possible damage under the hood? (radiator support ?)

    Just got a notification that it’s sold. Didn’t last long as predicted by Pickles...

    It sold last night. New owner buys and restores HSV's so will be able to do a good job of this one. Although I believe he plans to keep this one
