Edit: 270R is just the new version of the 170. That ebay link looks like a solid find. I have one of the 170's and really like it. It's pretty bulletproof.
I've been using a VX-170 in the truck and it works well. Loud clear audio, easy to read display. I adapted the SMA antenna connection to BNC, makes for an easier connection to the mobile antenna. I ditched the crappy stock antenna for a Larsen BNC duck for portable use.
I haven't had much use for it lately so I'd be willing to part with it. Shoot me a PM if interested.
