Value of a Savage

Hi guys,
I have a friend that's selling her grandma 1969 Cortina GT mk2 savage.. Original 80,xxx miles, semi restored, white.. Any value

The rego is KLP 985 (& was last registered 3rd December 1991)
-The conversion was carried out here in Geelong, Victoria. By Mark Deren - A Grade Motor Mechanic / Aircraft Mechanic
-The colour is Diamond White with black decalling on bonnet, with distingished gold GT stripes down each side
-The interior colour has white head lining (original), and the seats, trim, dash are all black.
-She said she has most documentation for the car, but can't verify which actual documents, as they're packed under everything at the moment.
-Nan brought the car in February 1970, from Bob Stillwil Fords in Flemington

Other information she has informed me of, which I'm not sure if you already know:
-summer/winter brakes (ventilated brakes)
-tramp rods
-battery relocated in the boot
-black panther badge (savage)
-cooling system -3 core large radiator with thermatic fan
-bonnet lock behind emblem (key lock)

-cosworth engine, 3ltr V6

    Bit hard to estimate a price without seeing pictures of it's current condition but I would have thought mid to high 20's might be realistic. Reading your description I gather it is a Savage 'replica' conversion not a real one. A real one's worth considerable more obviously.

    motor will most likely be an Essex V6 from a Capri, Cosworth didn't do up the Essex into GAA form until 73 74, a few pics will easilly sort it out (could be the D port version may explain the description lost in translation)

    There probably would be a bit of info missed between people in the discirption.. So a real savage doesn't have a cosworth v6? Who can I send a email to to show some photos ?

    Nice car, but nothing Cosworth here.  Id love to see it and have a look at how they mounted things etc.  I bought a backyard converted V6 cortina GT back in the 80's it did not drive very well at all.

    I believe it's located in Geelong. So by looking at the photo of the motor it isn't a cosworth? And it's a Essex? Do you think it's a genuine savage or just a mock up?

    Check the compliance plate, the savage would have a UK build plate, most were based on the 1600E but there were a few two door GT's, there are alot of differences in a savage/ uren car, engine bay and chassis rails should be seam welded, revised suspension mounting holes, bigger fuel tank, battery in boot, grille badge will have a big S and small savage instead of C and cortina. This is a couple of the differences PM me for any more info or google Jeff Uren, should be plenty of info in the UK too...
    Cheers Drew...

    I would think if it's truly a savage it would be worth more back in England than over here at the moment. Know someone who bought a Cortina Perana at $18000 but needs lots of work still a great car though.

    Hi
    Just letting everyone know that this car is not an original.
    This is my mothers car and started life as a 4 cylinder basic gt cortina.
    My Dad who is an A grade motor mechanic put a V6 Capri engine in the car in the mid 1970's.
    This car went really hard for its time but was pulled down around 1980 due to a marriage breakup.
    The car has not been on the road since. I know she did have the bodywork and paint done in the 1990's. She is obviously using my Dads reputable name to try and sell her car.
    Beware of the story telling of the life of this car. As Judith or Judy is known to stretch the truth!!!!
