Hi, about to look at a patrol GQ, 1992 DX, 4.2L Diesel, 7 seater, bullbar/towbar, long range tank 147 litres,ome suspension 2inch up, 230,000 km's, good nick apparantly, $13,000.00, have no idea on there value.
I presume the DX model has power steering and airco.

What are your views? Thanks in advance, Paul......

Paul,
Pretty sure the DX only came out as a 5 seater, not 7. It could be an RX which was a compromise between the ST and DX models....still had vynal floor mats etc. Air con was an optional extra and power steering was on all models.
$13K sounds okay for a straight unit and at 230,000klm, it is almost run-in.
Check closely underneath for any evidence of rock-hopping (eg: dings in diffs, sump etc) or evidence of recently painted sections to hide something wrong.
Knowing the history of owner/s would be handy too.
It should make a great truck and would need to be turbo'd to get it going properly.
Good luck

Paul,
As Roachie says, it's the standard trim no electric windows etc About the 200K mark is when you start to look at injectors etc. Look for the tell tale signs of abuse I usually look at the tyres they can be an indication of the sort of life the vehicle has had, cuts lumps missing etc plus the brand, the best being BFG's (of course) and maybe a set of one of the other not so good brands (I'm not silly enough to actually mention what in my opinion they are), check the condition of the spare that can be a good tell tale, under the bullbar for scratches and damage, cross members, diff housings, look on the gearbox and the exhaust where the uni joints are see if there's any grease splatter around this indicates that at least someone has been underneath on the odd occasion, fronnt drive shaft in the same area, this will also give you a ball park idea as to how much 4 wd has been engaged, difference between front and rear. The propshaft shaft uni's are a pig to grease it's easier not to do them. Oil filters, see if they are genuine and see if there is any service history. these are some of the thigs I look at. the book price is between 10K to 13K so it's at the top end of the scale, check out Red book.com this will give you something to work with in the way of prices and trims etc Hope some of this hekps.

Thanks for the reply, the bloke who owns it had the 3rd row seats added, he also added the ST seats for more comfort, but he put in carpet, i would prefer the vinyl myself, as i have in my hilux, easy to clean out a few kg's of Brindabella mud, which the young bloke thought he might bring home with him after Sunday's outing.

Thank's Paul...................
