GS or FFR
« on: October 26, 2017, 10:02:54 AM »
Hi Folks,

I'm after a GS or FFR (preferably GS) and preferably in WA.
Budget constraints limit me to about $13000. Living remote makes inspections hard so if any members know of something
out there I'm all ears.

Cheers,

Steve

I guess you've trawled through these on gumtree Steve
https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-perentie/k0?sort=price_asc

Don't forget all asking prices are "ambit claims" and usually there is room for negotiation.

Since you are located in a remote area is it possible to have someone look at and drive a particular vehicle - some mechanical businesses will do this for a fee, others may be prepared to make a recommendation - I could in NSW but that is probably a bit far in regard to your transport costs.

I hope you get a good one

Thanks mate, yep had a look at them and contacted most.
There's a clean one in Sydney that comes with a trailer that has promise and the guy has sent me a heap of extra pics.
Not interested in the trailer really though its a bonus I suppose.

Just chasing transport costs vs flying over and driving back.

Is there not an FFR in Rockingham for 12K?
I know he will not drop his price.

There was one of the Pertenite Facebook page for $8k today.
Dunno what state though.
The FFR on GT owner is curt to sat the least. I was chatting with his partner about it and when we got to price he snatched the mobile off her and said “It’s $12K that it. If you want a cheaper one try over East” and hung up on me. So....I don’t think he’ll take an offer but that was 2 months ago now!
The GS that was for sale for ages would have been a good buy.

Hello madtuna,

Any luck as yet,?  I have both, a GS and a FFR but located in Brisbane.
You are probably right about road freight its likely to be expensive, from the East to the West coast..

Anyway $12,000 each (firm) for either the GS or the FFR.    The GS is my current drive vehicle,
the FFR has a winch but needs a few dollars spent on it to pass a RWC.

Cheers.
