They never came out with the V8, although a couple were built and destroyed, and a few were made at a couple of dealers around the place.

This car has had the V8 fitted at some point in the last 40 years, not from factory. its not a hard conversion...

Wait, just remembered,lad i know won the XW, but he wanted the Torana, things are a bit hazy.

So if your mates a ford man and wants to get rid of the LJ im sure we can arrange the deal.

Doesnt mean its worth 50k.

We have been discussing this at work, i think the LJ is worth around 20, the XW around 30, the XA about 25 and the charger probably 20 as well, but hey im not that up with prices.

a foolcan coupe for 25k?
that's cheap in today's market....you could add another 10 to that quote easy dj

I was actually thinking that about the charger, havnt really been looking at whaat they go for and much as i love them im still under the impression there the underdogs when it comes to pricing?

And i hate XA's lol, was never going to give that a good nudge, I love the XW, brilliant cars, and yeah, well, just another V8 LJ...who cares about that one, dime a dozen.
