3.0 D GR '05 + 3.0 GRX '01

Post by gupster » 30 May 2017 09:27

Hi all. I have decided to sell both my Patrols as I have had enough camping, ie putting up and taking down the RTT, which I have already sold. I need some guidance from fellow members as to what would be a fair price for each of them.
Lets start with the '05 GR. I bought it in Johannesburg for R155K in Feb 2016 with about 178K on the clock and it has about 189K now. It was supposed to have had a complete rebuild, see attached inv, which as you can see was supposed to include a new turbo. Well I had to replace the turbo when I got it back to Durban at a cost of R11217.60. I immediately had a madman and EGT probe fitted and had a service done. I later bought the water level sensor but have not fitted it yet even though the wiring harness is in place. In Dec 2016, it sprang an oil leak and had to replace the injector seals. I have just completed a trip from Hibberdene, CT, Windhoek and back a total of about 6K Kilos and was very disapointed that the truck used about 2 L of oil despite there being no visible sign of smoke and definitely no oil leak. The truck has been wired for a fridge to be in the back of the car via one of those solenoid switches. It has the +400kilo upgraded rear coils and I think either +100 or +200 K front coils. I fitted a 3 inch stainless steel exhaust pipe with a single baffle. It has steel rims and an ARB bumper. The roof rack will be separate. Dont know what its worth. Its an outback with a sunroof hatch which the '05 does not have.
I have to go out in a minute and will post more details and pics later.
The '01 can only be sold as spares as I gave all the docs, I have copies, to someone I met with the promise of registering it. I never saw him again. Its been given permission to be registered here in SA, its a UK model, with tax and police clearance, I even had it micro dotted. It starts and runs but I see it has an oil leak and lots of rust. I have a brand new radiator cradle, the old one rusted, still in box.
I guess my thoughts are R140K for the '05 and R30K for the '01. The '01 has +400K rear coilss and +100K front. I also have the rear +200K coils that a changed as well as the orignal coils. Its got the 140l stainless steel tank but no secondary tank. Its got the strong uprated 5th gear. Suspension is all OME on both. I have the 90l tank and many more spares that will go with the '01.
Looking forward to your comments. Am busy too removing all the homemade camping drawers etc to get better pics

Hi Attie. Thanks for the interest but I want to sell the '05 first before the '01 and Juice has asked to be at the top of the list.
Kind regards.
