    What's an unregistered GQ Patrol worth?

    Petrol LWB wagon
    Has no key (belongs to a farmer who has old rego papers but can't find the old keys)
    Not bad OEM paint, no major rust I could see
    4 bald tyres
    Shocks looked brand new but bounce heaps when I pushed the bonnet up and down

    Was gunna offer him $500?
    Rekey possible through taking the steering coloumn apart and getting the number off the barrel, order a new barrel set from Nissan?? $200? (Don't care about doors locking, can always install remote central locking)
    4 new tyres $1000 it appears to have 31's on Sunraysias but they've perished/cut up then bald like I said above
    Rego in NSW $1000 for inspection 12 months (no idea, I've just moved over from WA). Can you get 3month rego in NSW to save money?

    so 2700 for a bit of a risk but a decent (looking at least) Patrol? but possible hidden bonuses, as mentioned alot of the suspension looked new and had some random winch on the front, nice bullbar etc

    I think it's been sitting there for at least 3+ years and the guy has no drivers license since he had a stroke (but is otherwise financially good so don't mind ripping him off a bit

    komorri- It's sitting in a paddock near Glen Innes
    Are UVP's a thing in NSW or do you just have to drive it straight to the closet inspection station (which is just up the road from where it's stored but it would be 600km away from where I live, so I couldn't work on it often)

    Not much more than scrap metal value.

    New rego is 12mths only, and Green Slip is considerably more for an unregistered car in NSW.

    if it's been sitting in a paddock for 3+ years i'd be counting on seals and stuff failing as soon as you start using it - everything will have dried out from not being used

    $500 is reasonable, the only thing that gives them value is the diffs are sought after, cunts ask $400 an end for them

    $500 would be top dollar with all of those unknowns.

    $500 plus whatever the winch is worth if its a good one.

    I sold my patrol for $1400 a few months back. It drove fine, cold ac but needed some leaks fixed and rust removed for a rwc. It had 3 month old 33's on it. The buyer was gonna wreck it out.

    spend your $2700 on something that's been used and maybe spend some time planning/saving for upgrades (while driving it) and not having to fix things every weekend

    maybe this (P plate fills me with confidence):

    or this (the k's are a bit high):
