Did anyone attend the Govt auction today.

I intended to watch on the net but I was too late.

There was a 2004 5 speed auto with 300+ kilometers.

I'm curious as to how much it brought.

Just saw a 2008 200 4.5 diesel sell for 60K, it had 80k km on it. It was on Grays auction site.

Hi Peter:

I'd be interested to know where you can watch such an auction on the Net. I am starting to look for a written off 80 series for spares for my beast.

Thanks.

Jack,
try "Pickles" auctions for damaged vehicles, they are Australia wide and can be viewed and bidded on line.

Gday Jack,

As you now already know, the main ones are Fowles & Pickles.

If you register you can watch the auctions online.

You need to pay a deposit in order to be allowed to bid.

As has already been indicated, it is best if you can determine some kind of history in order to stay safe.

Don't know about the sydney auction, but with SA Govt auctions you can look up prices for the previous 8 weeks. So for the HDJ100, they ranged from $31k upwards. The cheap one had 210,000k

Phil,

Got to be wary what you buy at the SA Govt. auctions.

A neighbour not far from us bought a mickey mouse looking Landcruiser at the auctions a few years back. Within 15 months he had spent heaps of money on brakes, bearings (wheel) etc, and then it started to have rust come out everywhere and a lot of the electrics started to play up.

It turned out it was an ex fisheries compliance officers Landcruiser and had been used for beach launches along the SE of SA coast, getting swamped with swells as they launched their patrol boat.

Was only advertised as ex SA Govt. vehicle.

Be wary, others have been landed with ex Forestory and Ag. Dept. vehicles, that have had a hard life, but in saying that, there are good vehicles also.

Would be handy to know the history before bidding.

Gday Phil,

Thanks for that.

I was just curious as to what higher distances would do to the prices.

These days we don't do that many kms but still need a vehicle with decent towing capacity.

I'm assuming the 100 series should generally be good for 500ks before serious expenditure is needed.
