    Default WTB Good Fuego

    A friend of mine,a young bloke who had his car (a Commodore) stolen, and wants to buy a French car (Smart kid!). He wants a good usable ready to drive Fuego ... not a shed! Must be in Victoria. If anyone can help please let me know.

    Isn't there anyone out there with a reasonable and usable Fuego that wants a good home? He's not expecting a mint condition car!
    He's a friend but he can't have mine!

    As posted elsewhere, I have a 1982 Red Fuego, its unregistered (still has its original plates with it) the car will run, needs new tyres and exterior is in reasonablecondition, previous owner was a marine engineer, so mechanically it is in good condition, paintwork on bonnet needs attention. front and rear bumpers have been re-done and look good.

    Its an honest car that deserves to be bought back on the road rather than
    stripped for parts, body is straight and motor can be run for evaluation.

    Price is $600 and worth more than that if stripped for spareparts. You have my phone # and the car is located at Heidelberg.

    Haven't advertised it elsewhere, but I must reduce some of my cars soon.

    Ken.

    Do you have any photos of the Fuego, Ken?
    Is it roadworthy, if not what's required?

    Cheers

    I noticed an immaculate Fuego advertised in Just Cars magazine. Only 94000 kays, $3500. In Melbourne I think.

    How much does he want to spend?

    If I know what price range he's after, I'll keep my eyes open...

    The missus would love me to sell mine, but I think I'll trade her in before that happens

    Ooops, gotta go, S.W.M.B.O is calling again......

    I think he's looking at around $2000 to $2500 for a pretty good one. I can understand the trade the cook before the Fuego! My daughter, the previous owner of my Fuego still refers to 'our' Fuego ..... despite the fact that I, as fathers do, gave her too much for the car! I don't think she has yet forgiven her husband for talking her into getting rid of the Fuego!

    It needs a changeover to non metric tyres as the TRX are too worn for a
    Roadworthy. I that is probably the only thing that requires immediate attention except that I have used the right hand side driving mirror on one of my cars.

    It would probably need new wiper blades etc and I haven't pulled any of th
    wheels off to check the braking system, but the previous owner passed on quite a bit of documentation that indicates he had purchased and replaced quite a few parts on the car, including the brake rotors.

    I would recommend that anyone in Melbourne, have a good look over it and
    decide for themselves, I think that with a bit of TLC and minor dollars spent
    it could go back on the road quickly. Phone # is (03) 9457 1985.

    Many thanks Aussie Froggers,

    My young friend is going through the 'I don't know what I want but ...' stage so who knows what he'll actually want but until he makes up his mind it's on hold from my point of view.

    Again thanks for the help everyone

    BTW Ken, you may recall that at the French Car Day we discussed my need for a drivers arm rest for my Fuego. Do you actually have one and is it close to or even, hopefully, the colour of mine?

    If so how much do you want for it?

    I think that I have Grey and Brown plastic, not sure what condition the spares are in, but I would pay $20 for a reasonable condition one and a bit less for one just o.k. (if I needed one) Most will have the separator strip between the electric door switches missing, but I am sure that is a fixable thing if one cares to fiddle with it. The main thing is that the screw mounts are o.k. and moudlings are not cracked.

    Can't recal what colour yours was at this stage, like all things everything is negotiable on a good day!!

    Thanks Ken, I'll give you a call when I know what my movements next week are so I can catch up and see what you've got there.
