    Default cheap frenchies

    after reading the thread about the cheap RS225 the other day http://www.aussiefrogs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=98162 i though it might be interesting to have a place to list up cheap finds on here, and it may even give people a chance to comment on the cars if they know anything about it...

    Came across this one the other day, and makes me wonder what is wrong with it...

    You should buy that one .... Gee's it would be some fun. It doesn't say it's complianced or registered in Australia in the advert. You would also need to verify it's belly isn't rotted out from road salt.

    I believe compliance is unnecessary for a car pre 1989, this is date compliance plates were required to be fitted.

    I'll stand to be corrected.

    It would,of course, have to comply with ADRs current at time of car manufacture, ie 1987. So there may be not much more that a RWC required for full reg. For Club Reg it should be even easier.

    As always, Caveat emptor about rust and mechanical condition.

    i couldnt afford it, but gee its a bloody cheap way into an Alpine!!!

    Pre Jan 1989 there are different rules that are far more leniant, so you as long as it aint rusted to the shithouse you could prob get it "copmplied" for under $2k...

    Anyone on here know any of its history?

    The Alpine hasn't seen many hard miles since the exhaust was installed. The salt has nicely tainted the pipes.
    Might have a look myself, even if it to p15s SWMBO off.

    They still need compliancing, the really early stuff like the CX wagon we sold recently had no compliance plate, but has been registered in Victoria since the 1970's. If you didn't have the previous rego number.... you'd be in deep doggie poo trying to re-register it without compliancing it (some 30year after it was first registered out here).

    My CX is an '85 model and wears a personal import plate, as does the XM I recently sold. Cars over a certain age can be imported, but you must own and use them overseas for 12months, then a personal import plate is possible ( it was 3months it had to be used for overseas back in '96 when my father purchased the CX in the UK).

    What set bells ringing for me in the club permit suggestion...... You wouldn't need to compliance the car or make it legal for Australian roads if it was put onto a club permit. After all how on earth would a car club be expected to know if it's not complianced ;confused:

    That GTA will need to be 'complianced'. Just ask the guys who have imported their own.

    Depends on the state as to what will be needed.

    On the one I looked at back in 2005, it would have required anti-intrusion bars in the doors and for Qld, not sure about other states, child seat anchorage points in the rear. WTF?????

    The GTA, depeneding on how long it was on the roads in the UK, and just where it was could be very rusty in the rear frame section and around the door anchorage points.

    Yeah, it would be a very fun car, but IMO, the price is reflective of possible work required to have one legal to register in AUstralia.

    If Alan Moore sees this thread, he would be able to add a heap more as he's brought 1 out and helped with others.

    from memory its not a "full on" compliance as is required for things like R34 Skylines etc, but side intrusion bars, seatbelts, unleaded fuel filler neck, anchorage points, and a general RWC....

    I've got one of them for sale .... You can have it for $14,000 as is. Proper motor and no shitty slugomatic gearbox is the difference

    That VTR coupe is in desperate need of a rear spoiler...

    As for the "By Loeb" edition, the best one was the original version (i.e. a re-skinned VTS). Citroen started cutting back on the inclusions in later versions.

    Another few that could be dirt cheap, this is where I bought my Clio from, $1900 with 144,000km.

    This one will probably go dirt cheap, but in average nick, and will need timing belt replaced soon.

    Agree. The metallic light blue paint look good on those.

    A shame we never saw those here. I, too also like the blue, but I am well and truly tired of gray interiors.

    for a 182 its not cheap per se, but for the KM it has done, and the nick it seems to be in, what a bargain!

    Could have been on personalised plates - ITs the (valid) reason why a couple of our past cars had rego plates that didn't correspond with the age of the car.
