    Default EOI: COMPLETE & RUNNING 240K coupe

    Well - I have been snooping in this forum for a little while now and have recently signed up and opened my own account... I have been toying with the idea of selling one of my 240K coupes.
    There is a genuine reason for this... It will have to go outside shortly and none of my babies sleep outside!
    No pics yet as this is for EOI only - so if you are interested let me know text 0417 159 700 as I don't check this site very often(reception is patchy where I live so calls cut out a fair bit - text is the best way to catch me).
    This car is 100% complete and running, not registered though - I basically have this car ready for bodyworks, but with 3 project cars on the go I have the love for this car, just not the time to finish it... No structural rust, great condition original interior, and all the remaining rust has been killed so it will not spread, but most panels need repair in the usual spots.
    If anyone is interested in it, I'm happy to put a new battery in and organise a permit so you can drive it home.

    Where the helI is Dubceston? What year is the coupe? Auto or Manual?
    I guess it come down to how much the freight will cost on top of the car's price.

    It all depends on what you want for it,
    It would be nice to have a spare coupe,

    and only a hour and a half away.

    Dont let it go for any less then $4000. They are way to hard to find this complete , let alone running also. Keep this EOI online, someone will show up with the coin one day.

    hang on how is a Unseen running un registered coupe worth 4k?
    it would have to be a Pearler.

    Good luck with the sale, but the only way i see you getting 4k is to dubai

    No current pics sorry, it's shoved in the corner at home and i only have progress shots, so none of the whole car, i'll try and dig them off photobucket tonight when i get home - not letting it go for less than $4k - I need $5k but it owes me a heap more...
    She isn't any oil painting, but the hard work has all been done. It literally only needs the body neatening up, the rust patches fixed and paint.
    She needs to go because i basically do not want it outside - I have another Coupe (which is a one owner type job which came with another Coupe as a parts car!) and I can't justify having two (and a half) Coupes when I know there will be someone who can love and attend to it more than me (pathetic hey!). Not desparate to sell - so if the right buyer comes along I will negotiate.
    It's a pretty reasonable price considering it's complete, running and could go for rego (i was going to put SI on it once it was painted).

    Any way - enough of my life story - here are some more details I have, it's cut and paste off an ad i have in one of my VW forums:

    It is time to say goodbye...
    I am running out of room and opposed to putting my Miss Dot outside - I was going to sell her.

    1973 Manual 240K GL Coupe

    Then:

    It was not complete and missing some parts
    We got her about 3 years ago - needing a lot of love and attention.
    Rust in the panels, but no structural rust in floor or pillars.
    Interior was so-so, missing a lot of different small bits.
    The car would start - but there were a lot of wiring gremlins i.e. lights not working, fuses blowing, randomly stopping.
    Standard L24 with some head port work and a bigger cam, but was not running properly and needed a tune.
    Fuel injection had been put onto it but that was another nightmare.

    Now:
    Almost full re-wire, we've hidden a lot of the wiring in the engine bay and moved the old wire loop fuse box from the engine bay and replaced it with a "modern" style fuse box now located in the cabin.
    Sourced all missing interior parts and now it is a lot neater inside.
    Major tune so now it will start first go and idle correctly (and oh my gosh does she sound nice)
    Volvo 4pot brakes.
    Hotwire mags (a bit sexy)

    Best bits:
    It is actually reliable!
    THE SOUNDDDDDDDDDDDD - OH MY GOD! It is one of the best sounding vehicles I have ever heard. With the exhaust and lumpy idle - just heaven.
    It pulls very hard in the top end.
    All remaining rust has been killed so it will not spread.
    THE CAR IS 100% COMPLETE - no parts missing (ALL CHROME TRIMMINGS)

    The only thing i didn't get around to was putting a surge tank in - so when the fuel tank is low and you swing around a corner it struggles a bit to get the fuel to the engine. Could do with another tune because i think it could run better.

    She isn't any oil painting - but this car is ready for the bodyworks, and it is with much sadness that I have to part with her. This car has had a lot of work put into it and I will be screening buyers because i want it to go to a good home. Looking for $5,000 - but this is a very special rare car. PM if interested. (Thanks Preen for helping me with this )

    Not registered - but if the right person comes along I'll put a new battery in it and organse a permit so you can drive her home...

    Hey you bought this cheap and in good faith off another Tassie K enthusiast, which i got you on to.

    and it should go to someone similar surely, rather than being a money making excrsise - remember how the tasssie datto network works.

    Do you know how much I have spent on this? How many hours I have put into this to get it to where it is at? It wasn't all Matt, I basically took this car resto under my wing. (ready for rego might I add, had the SI forms filled in ready to go).
    I'm not a keyboard warrior - and I don't sh!t talk either so if i don't like someone, they will not get it to put it bluntly. (You know the story of the last car i sold, turned two people down before I found a driver for it. "Pay $500 extra and get your Hyundai!" Poor girl didn't know how to take that comment...)
    It is what it is - and it will go to an enthusiast I will make sure of it. Stupid I know, but this isn't just a car to me and if the right person comes along prices are open to negotiation.

    Sorry - don't know how to put frilly edges on things... One of my bad points I guess.

    How can a car be a money making exercise when it didn't run when we bought it, therefore paying a mechanic to get it running, and then paying an auto electrician to fix wiring from engine swap and changes from auto to manual, paying good money for a center console that was missing, new headlights and so on.....no money is being made from this sale and we just wish to pass this car onto a fellow 'k' lover. Please dont hijack this thread, if you have something to say please feel free to p.m me.

    No fighting! Please...
    If my Dot knew she was causing controversy she'll get a complex. I might pull this EOI and readvertise later, I'm not desparate to sell her and who knows I might even be able to finish it off down the track. If you are really interested please feel free to PM me because it deserves more love than I give it at this point in time, and if it went to a good home I would be stoked... I guess even if it was OS (but you would need to post photos :P)
    I might even get it registered for ****s and giggles and see how many Spotto threads I can get into.
    This was an EOI thread - and my gosh did I get interest in it!
    If a Mod could close this thread it would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks
    Steph
