1972 Toyota Corona MKII - Pick-up

Post by barrydorr » Thu 30 Jun 2016, 16:23

So I am contemplating of selling my bakkie, lots of blood sweat and tear have gone into her but the love for Opel is taking the overhand and don't want her to be neglected and hope to find her a good home.

Original 1600 12R Engine (fully overhauled)
Original Gearbox
Installed Disc brakes in the front
New Wheels and Tyres
Redone interior, close to original spec
I have all the restoration details, what has been done and all the slips
Workshop manual

Bakkie is great condition only thing that is still on the to-do list is to re-chrome the bumpers and find the correct steering wheel
Then it need a new gearbox seal, which I will install before the sale.

I obviously spend more then she is worth and not looking to get my money back but I do want an honest price.


Question would be how much would I ask, I really appreciate some your humble opinions on what she is worth.

I don't really want to look at stuff like this. if I had the cash and the space, I would buy it in a heartbeat. have always loved the shape, and the condition looks awesome.

Thanks for correcting me and calling the condition awesome rather then I did great!


I have seen other guys asking 60K upto 100K allready, i have created this FB page awhile and keep track of the one for sale https://www.facebook.com/toyotacoronaMKIIPickupSA/

Well I know if i advertise it for a certain amount and it sell within a week, my price was too low...If it is for sale for 6 months my price is too high... :lol:

Obviously I am not going to ask 100K that would be over the top, but I was thinking R65.000 neg ? Is that fair, to much, or to low? considering what other guys are asking.

Congratulations what a nice resto - I agree on changing the steering and I would personally like the original wheels as well.

Its a pity I struggle with space as I would buy this in a heart beat (but when paying for a storage garage @ R1,500 p/month) it gets pricey when you have few cars. I guess 55-65k is a good price but at the end of the day, if someone wants it they will pay whatever you charge for it!!

Cheers

Barry

Do you have the original rims and wheelcaps.

The engine,still standard or bored? In a nutshell, what did you do when you attended to the engine?

From an international perspective, that's a close to R100K car. In my opinion R50K is cheap.

Don't undersell yourself. If you advertise, advertise high, you can always re-advertise later at lower price.
