VL Calais V8 Worth?

Hey Guys,

Thinking about selling my Series 2 V8 in Sydney.

Wondering what they are worth?

Has minor engine work (stage 2 cam), supra 5 speed conversion, looks standard, a little rust bubbles rear window, red over silver. Been a running project over the years, as I could afford things, I got things done or fixed. Not a show car, average condition. Kms says 175k kms but has stopped working and who knows with previous owners. So many receipts from new parts... prob $20ks worth

Runs like a dream and cruise on weekends usually.

Let me know your thoughts

I bought a 355 Stroker original 5L Calais in pretty good gondition for $9500 a couple years ago

Before that was an original 5L calais in very good condition (stock) $8000


As stated above, condition is the key and if its original or not
.
