Up for bid is my beloved VY SS ute V8. 5.4 liter LS1 engine. I bought this ute from portland in december 2019 as a still registered ute until may 2020. I then went for a holiday in march. Soon after I landed on my supposed holiday overseas, the government announced COVID restrictions. Needless to say, I was stranded an unable to be back to arrange a RWC for transferring to my name before the rego expired in may.
I returned to melbourne in june. ( too late). I then proceeded to get a RWC three weeks ago and as you would expect, nobody goes thru a RWC without the headache as the testers will require the car to be safe.
So the list of the works done are as follows:
1. New front windscreen2. New shockers3. New ball joint and tie rods.4. New bushes at the front all around 5. 4 new tyres6. new engine support.7. engine faults in the instrument cluster were cleared.8. everything works.9. very clean and nice engine, no oil leaks no funny sounds.
It took me a long time to look for the specific ute with the goodies that I want. So when I finally found one, I bought it and spent money as it was my plan to use it as a toy. It would have been my red car. I have a daily toyota corolla and 4wd weekender.
Why I bought it is because it is now rare to find a VY in an SS V8 combination that is not molested. Most of these hard a hard life being treated like shit being used for burn outs or as a real work horse.
But my ute had a very easy life. It was just used by the original owner in his flower business to buy supplies from the melbourne cbd and to stores and then to his farm in ballarat. So it is mostly high way kilometers.
The body is very straight and very clean. Books comes with the car and is always serviced.the 2nd owner lowered the car and put 19 inch alloys and low profile 40 series tyres and looked awsome. He also installed spider cat backs. So it sounds awesome but not noisy. He installed double DIN pioneer dvd/ stereo player. He installted PCM cold air intake.
I installed full electric cloth seats ( both sides) as the original one is manual. I purchased the same color hard lid that came of a genuine HSV hard lid worth $2000 dollars.
The aircon is ice cold. Another bonus is that it has a dual electronic injection gas system that alone costs 5,000 to install. But you can always switch to petrol at anytime. if it is on agaas mode, it will first use petrol on first start and then the gas will kick in after the engine has warmed up.It now drives like when it was brand new.
Reason why i'm selling?. I just lost my job due to this stupid COVID!. and I am nearly on the brink of losing the second and lastly my health is failing due to a damaged kidney. Should it sell while im still in the hospital, my wife and cousine will be acting in my behalf. I would need all the money I can get at this stage and I am really sad to see her go as she was my dream car but now has to be sacrificed.
Beleive me, it is a genuine sale and Will be at a total lost here and I am willing to take a hit on this as I know that people with still some job and money will low ball me. I wont mind giving it away for however cheap it would go.
No test drives for now as it is unregistered and I cannot afford see testers trying to do burn outs with it as the power it has is so tempting to try. If you are interstate buyer, I am happy to hold on to it until the restriction eases. It is kept inside the shed so it is away form the weather. buyer to organize transport but im happy to help in loading.
Shoot me any question you might have.
It will go thru auction. At this stage but shoot me anything. you never know. Do your research and I think its a good investment with the added concept that it is bound to be a collector's investment as they dont make em anymore. This is one of those genuine sales.
I reserve the right to end the auction early if the ute sells outside of ebay.
