How much would you pay for a st205 or a st185 gearbox? I've been doing some hunting around and so far I have not found any 205's but I have been offered a 185 boxs from $950 up to $1,950

Has nayone done any shopping for these b4?

A few people on toymods ahve them for sale, around the $200 - $400 mark.

$250 for a gearbox? That sounds cheap..

The previous owner of my car payed $2000 for a brand new ST205 box including installation. Got it done at Neil Bates automotive up in Canberra.

i just bought a ST185 Group A gearbox (JDM) 1992, 97,000km's and 4.285 final drive instead of 3.933 for only $550 :D

he wanted to charge me $950, i told him hes dreaming coz id seen a 205 gearbox go for less, and id rather spend 1300 to buy synchros, rebuild mine, and have a brand new one, so he said 550, and i said ok :D

that was from toyrolla in victoria, its been reconditioned, new gaskets and shit

ST205 gearboxes are far and between thoguh, which sucks.

I would love a ST205 box. But i need to find one within the next 2 weeks before the engine goes back in.

man take a chill pill

could i suggest, putting the gearbox on ebay, see how much you get for it. Put a high reserve on it so you don't shoot yourself in the foot.

go the 205 box!

mine with 228,000 klicks on it still shifts smooth as butter - tho it suffers the usual toyota problem of randomly being an bitch to get into reverse

Well have you thought that maybe it's you that is being ripped off.. Considering I was originally quoted $950 + for a st185 box, 650 with warrantee was a pretty good deal.. I mean just because a bunch of 20 somethings on a internet forum tell you they wouldn't pay X amount for something, doesn't mean that they are right.. I mean how much crap floats around in this forum? Maybe you should just take what is said in forums with a grain of salt. Not as fact.

i agree with rome.

that said i would never, ever buy a gt4 box of any sort for less than ~$500 - gearboxes are simply worth more than that imo.

/me hugs his brand new dealer delivered ST205 box :)

the then is elliot that i had my box on the net for 500-600 and no ones wanted..got told mainly by classic 71 b the only way to sell it was to lower the price and i did then nothing then cheap as price...

this st185 box is a good as one from a wreaker if not better but they want minimum like 700 odd!!!!

so what u said make no sence what to ever... and i didn't get riped it from a half cut..i got my engine..ecu and brakes i wanted!

they are worth more - i agree BUT on forums no one ecver is willing to pay what things are really worth ..

After all that was said + done i was lucky to break 70 dollars on my box - got misquoted freight + didnt want to put the buyer thru anymore hassles
