EOI: VL manual

Hey all, my little brother might want to sell his vl but not sure. just wondering if anyone might be interested?????
OK, he bought it off an old guy at the start of the year, it was originaly a 1986 vacationer AUTO but he has done a few mods to it and converted it to MANUAL. its white with dark silver bumpers. the paint is starting to fade and has some minor surface rust around the front and rear windows, but the body is straight.
The mods are,
-calais front lights. bright whit globes, high, low beam & parkers.
-calais boot garnish.
-full s2 blue calais interiour. dash, roof lining, int. light, centre console, doors, seats ect in exc condition could do with a steam clean.
-lowered on pedders springs.
-3.45 LSD. with recent service tag.
-MX7 5-speed gearbox. (conversion 2 weeks ago)
-factory heavy duty clutch. (NEW 2 weeks old)
-brand new slave and master cylinder.
-turbo brakes. fresh pads.
-isotta steering wheel.
-BIG stereo. cd/mp3 player (kenwood), custom parcell shelf with 2x6" 3-ways 2x6" woofers (pioneer), 2x6" woofers & tweeters mounted in pods in front doors (cerwinvega) 2x tweeters on inner front pillars next to sun visors, 10" sub in box (cerwinvega), 1x4 channel mp (caidence) 1x2 channel amp (mtx).
-recent full service on engine, K&N pod filter.
-16" walkinshaw rims.
-2 1\2" mandrill bent stainless steel exhaust with high flow cat and custom 3" tip.
-extractors.
thats about all i can think of atm.
he has spent alot of time money and effort on it and as i said he is not 100% sure if he wants to part with it but is open to offers.

Hard to say without seeing it, but from what you said 2.500 - 3.500? which is good for an NA exec these days mainly due to your diff, turbo gearbox and turbo brakes. Pitty its a series one motor.
No more because as you said faided paint, surface rust.
Pics will help alot.

pics

il take a few pics of it this weekend and post them up. the motor runs really well, hasnt had any trouble with it except the fuel pum which was replaced a couple of weeks after he got it. other than that its smooth as....

just wondering, never put up pics befor??? how do i??????

Also forgot to mention that it doesnt have the original motor in it, the previous owner said that the original motor blew the head on it. the car has done just over 300 000km but the new motor has done almost 170 000km.

he has spent to much time and effort on it allready, i dont think he wants to take it all apart again. he did it all himself, diff, interiour, springs ect. and had a friend help him put in the gearbox. he just wants to know if anyone might be interested in it.

hrmmm very rough, but. amd big but, it has the potential for a easy turbo conversion, its all done bar the motor. wack a cheapo conversion on it and keep driving it, give it a bit of body work and a spray and blam nice car, interior isnt bad, but if yuo really wanna sell, wreck it,.

You said r32, in which case the factory vl turbo box (MX7) is better.
If you ment r33, they are alot better than the MX7.
