Lets see, 3 hrs to go and a half hour away...tempting. the yellow would probably look awesome all polished up with shiny new wheels? There are several of these coming in from Asia to Gold Coast nowadays. But if you paid $10k and spent $25 on it, thats a pretty cool car for $35k???

Another 300GD this time on carsales

http://www.carsales.com.au/private/deta ... A&__N=1216 1246 1247 1252 1282 1090 4294957384&silo=Stock&Range=Price:Min,Max~1


I have a 2WD wagon but would like the clearance of a G...

I do not know much about these vehicles so can some one help me with, what are these trucks worth? 4 door diesel, not more than 400Kms, not much rust etc.
Difficult question, I know, length of a piece of string... but what sort of range for a good one?

Thanks
Adam

Probably a good unit if you had forever to get there, no land speed records with these babies.

Looks OK, except for the rim and tyres.

No wonder it's not been driven off road by the current owner, you couldn't mount a gutter without getting a puncture with those low profiles.

Regards,

aside from the wheels, looks to be a fairly tidy unit.

A vehicle that I would one day like to own.
