Car of the year edition.

Post by LENNO » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:19 am

Hi all,
I used to be a member on this site when I first purchased my FTO back in 2010 but account must have closed. I Fell in love with the car yet unfortunately for the past 5-6 years I have been living in the UK and only get a chance to come back to Australia once a year so she just sits in the garage all year round.

I am open to selling it but not in a desperate rush to sell and I just wanted to see if she could find a better home giving this forum first chance to have a look before i start thinking of actively selling it as people here appreciate the cars.

1995 Mitsubishi FTO GPX
Manual
Car of the year limited edition
2.0L V6 Mivec engine

One larger scratch
A few other bits and pieces to the exterior

Hi mate, yeah i had it on Gumtree back in February while i was home in Australia for 3 weeks but due to some family issues i completely forgot about it as i was waiting for approval to join back onto this forum. I also went back through my emails and realised I had missed a whole bunch of replies.

No doubt someone should snap it up. What did you have it up for before?

To be honest the sentimental value is through the roof! But I had it up for $6000 on Gumtree back in February to see if i got a few hits. To be honest I do want to know what the Car of the year edition+ it being a manual effects are. Someone on here will know if the Wikipedia is correct in saying that only 20 manual versions were made? It was something I didnt take into consideration when I bought it I was more happy with how she looked and sounded (which when i heard i was like yep im getting her).

Unless this one is the fixed up write off and that’s why it’s got a different front bar

Location: Sydney
Rego: As i live in the UK and only get back for 3 weeks a year i've let it run out as i cant justify paying it especially as the most recent visit to Aus i was Badly injured and unable to drive anyway.
Price: Looking for offers over $5600

I am in no rush for a sale so more than happy to hear what I could get.
I said before i got a quite a few hits on Gumtree but before i put it back up on there i would prefer to see if someone who really appreciates it would like to express interest.

I did not know it was only one of 19 cars made. Always interesting to know (I always thought it was a bit special) also FYI I've done the inspections.It is the original engine and there are no other issues regarding the car. Low KMs are due to me not driving it more than 100 km in the last 6 years.

Well, one of twenty made with at least one of those written off haha. But among FTOs, definitely a more collectible one. Hopefully it stays in the club, would be great to see at Bonfire next year!
