10% payment within 24 hours of end of auction via bank deposit and balance within 7 days via bank deposit otherwise you will be considered a bogus buyer and the car may be re-listed without notice.
If you are the winning bidder and the reserve price is reached and you don't pay or complete the purchase for any reason whatsoever, an eBay unpaid-item case will be opened against you
which may result in your eBay account being restricted and you will be added to the blocked-buyer list eBay makes available to sellers.
Due to China virus and the current restrictions, for pickup probably the best way would be to send a transporter to pickup as trucks are allowed on the roads for their work, many transport companies have reasonable rates for this sort of thing.

FORD BF XR6 TURBO
Meticulous 3-year ground-up rebuild by licensed qualified Ford-specialist automotive technician
Built to be a quick, reliable, safe, legal and immaculate XR6 Turbo that can be daily-driven no problem.
25psi 450rwkw custom-tuned engine and gearbox
Fully-built forged Barra, fully-built 1000+HP ZF, billet hi-flow Garrett, Brembo, Simmons, all new suspension, steering etc
Every single thing new or fully-rebuilt with new parts, no corners cut
Only genuine Ford or quality brand-name parts used, no rubbish
Have included maybe too much info but info that I would want to know if I was buying.
Near impossible to exaggerate the attention to detail paid to this build and to the quality of the build and to every single part, pretty sure my definition of no-corners-cut is way different to what most people would imagine,
have been in the trade for many years and worked in numerous workshops over the years and have built and seen many cars being built and can confidently say you will not find a car with better build-quality.
This car was built over a roughly 3-year period as time allowed but make no mistake the expertise that has gone into this build is 100% professional.
Getting a car built same like this at a workshop, parts and labour easy over 100k, no chance would there be less than a minimum 1000 hours put into this car and any workshop labour cost starts at around 100-150 per hour, do the math.
This car was not built with the intention of being the quickest street-driven XR6T out there, which is pretty unrealistic anyway as next week someone will go quicker, chasing this goal almost always ends with an unreliable highly-strung car
in which something constantly fails or needs repair etc. This car was built to be quick but also to be reliable and durable
and so to be able to jump in and drive anytime and for that to continue for many years without any major dramas.
Driven normally, it can putter around like any other car but put your foot down and everything changes.
Other than a few minor teething issues which have been sorted and which you will always get with any build of this magnitude,
everything turned out as expected.
A personal opinion here, it seems inevitable that the XR6T will be collectable given time, it certainly deserves to be, especially now that the Falcon is no more.
XR6T's reached iconic cult-car status years ago and reviewed as one of the best, if not the best, cars Ford OZ ever made,
which is a lot more than you can say about many other older so-called collectable cars.
Sure you've seen but if not look at the many other examples of cars that have reached ludicrous prices, sometimes simply due to being older. Common problem is many are rusted-out death-traps under that shiny new paint.
If you're a younger person who lusts after some of these cars yet weren't around back in the day to know the reputation they had, many were and always will be shitboxes regardless of price, you can't polish a turd.
Lastly, this car is definitely not for everyone, it would take a particular type of buyer who is looking for something like this and of this quality and who can appreciate the time, expertise and expense that has gone into it.
This car was not built with the intention of selling it, if it was many things would not have been done or not done the way they have been.
All matching numbers, original engine and gearbox, genuine XR6 Turbo not a conversion, not ex-police car.
Factory-fitted leather, premium sound, high-series brakes etc, has Ford iDesign stickers.
Can verify at Ford's website (need to register and login to view detailed vehicle info, then click on Vehicle at www.etis.ford.com).
Probably missed many things in below specs but nothing not done.
On cold-start pistons bit noisy until they warm up, normal for 2618 forged pistons bore clearance (2618 recommended for hi-boost).
Resprayed number of years back, paint 95%, bumpers could do with repaint stone-chips etc (rural location) and small ding on bonnet.
Drives 100% perfect, tight, fully sorted, everything works as expected, bone-dry top-to-bottom no leaks.
Driven sedately, fuel economy is comparable to stock.
Has legal ride-height, wheels, brakes, window-tint etc and one intake mod (intercooler) as allowed under VIC law.
Upon completion passed VIC roadworthy inspection and VicRoads registration inspection (by VicRoads officer).
Currently registered but sold with no rego no plates as not having traffic fines in the mail due to someone driving around without transferring rego.
Clear history, never written-off, never stolen, not under finance, can verify at Government's website (www.ppsr.gov.au).
Comes with 2 genuine Ford keys and 2 remotes, books, most-if-not-all parts receipts, wheel locknut key, and SCT X4 flash tuner with custom tune loaded.
No tyre-kickers, no scammers, no dreamers.
Like pretty-much all private vehicle sales, sold on an as-is basis with no warranty no refund.
Everything listed in below specs is how the car was built, is on the car, and is how the car is sold, so no nasty surprises.
Pickup is at Wodonga VIC 3690, if interstate purchase you organise and pay for pickup transport, can help with loading if needed.
Accepted payment is bank deposit, car not released until cleared payment received.
Tune developed over a number of sessions (not one-day dyno), some points below.
25psi max boost, stable boost using Ford wastegate control solenoid.
450rwkw, tuned for 98 unleaded.
Mild-everyday tune, easy potential for more power if wanted (aggressive tune, E85 upgrade etc).
ZF tune includes raised non-shifting pressures and modified shift-points.
Custom torque-reduction during hi-load shifts to ease drivetrain strain.
In ZF auto-mode, will not hit the rev-limiter at full throttle, will gear-change just before.
