Vl Calais Turbo thinking about selling

Hey I'm just after some feedback on people might think my VL Calais is worth if I put it up for sale. There's not a great deal that pop up for sale in SA that are similar so its hard to know. I have had it for 2 years and driven it a handful of times on the weekend. A lot of the things below I have done in the last 18 months.

Its a July 86 VL Calais turbo from factory.
Pretty well stock RB30 with nistune ECU. Last tune was 181kw
5 speed manual
Front mount intercooler
3 inch exhaust
coiler over suspension in front, airbag assisted in rears
New heavy duty clutch
fresh paint on front bar, nose cone and bonnet.
rebuilt LSD diff with new billet steel axles
Battery
Boost gauge
Turbo timer
New radiator and all new cooling hoses
VT front brakes - new discs and pads

Hoping the pic uploads to.

Cheers

In relation to a quick price without seeing it in person,
I would say around $10,000 give or take.

That's just my opinion, I'm sure others will differ

Nice, thanks for sharing.
It's great to see some fresh vl turbos in adelaide.

How much rust (boot / window seals / engine bay)?

There's no visible rust throughout the car. Before I owned it it's obviously had a respray so I'm not sure how any rust would've been repaired if it had some. Engine bay is okay apart from the fuse box is a mess like a lot of vl's. Interior is pretty good for its age. Has one cigarette hole in the back seat which is a bummer. All electric windows work and the pop up lights works.

You're right. But I wouldn't think this will affect the price to much. It also doesn't have rear calais lights, no badges, doesn't have calais wheels and doesn't have standard calais front bar. If someone is looking for one that looks like it just rolled out the factory then this wouldn't be for them. But I'm sure they could get it back looking like that if they wanted.
