  1. Looking for a really nice 550 Spyder replica if anyone knows of one for sale anywhere in Australia. thanks
  2. taken from the white 944 turbo S advert - "rather than the weaker cast components used in the 89-91 944 Turbos" LOL, 944 turbos have cast con rods now
  3. well, so ends another chapter in my car ownership book. Coupe has been sold - for $79,000
  4. Yeah it’s sort of gone that way hasn’t it lol. There are a million places I could advertise this properly so will see what happens. In answer to the question, it’s done 179,000 kms, has original books and keyring from first owner and I’m the 3rd owner
  5. paper tag still on the carpet! console lid thats never been damaged/broken - unheard of!! this car really is 99% rust free & never had any rust repairs - extremely RARE/unheard of. engine never been touched. No rust or repairs here - both side are the same. Note original exhaust hanger bracket original paint under the rear window - never any rust here. Original owner insalled a boot light lol the whole car has been verified correct - down to every detail - apart from where the original owner installed his own badges all the rust prone areas - including ones behind the front guards I had to remove metal platework to get to - have no rust (both side torque boxes below) factory overspray still under the car part of the build sheet still under the door sill trim I just removed. under the carpet I found trim offcuts from the vinyl roof, door trim & sealing strip - probably from the production line. Definitely an exceptional example - who knows what its worth!
  6. Not really, but eveything has a price. cheers this is a stone cold start - fires up right away another one with it idling away. This is original paint this is the only area on the car thats been painted (no damage to the panel on the inside of the boot, so it must have been paint damage/scratch). The area from the top of the original GS stripe to the top of the 1/4 panel - thats it for the whole car. letter from ford - all options/spec as per this sheet - all glass/rubber/trims/carpets/mechanicals are original
  7. Info taken from this site about the xa/xb clevo rocker covers - 2/3 of the way down the page. - amazing amount of info here on Oz falcons. http://www.aus-ford-uk.co.uk/html/engines.html "Four barrel equipped cars also had their rocker covers painted Ford Blue - as seen in most of the photos above (GT only) - but two barrel carb’d 351C’s as fitted to XA and XB’s had their rocker covers painted orange, as seen below".
  8. Hi, very common misconception about the rocker cover colours - yes this is factory 351 (K code for the engine code on the compliance plates & matching numbers). These are the original correct covers & so is the aircleaner, carby, fuel pump - even the alternator has the remnants of the paper sticker on it. So, people get confused about the rocker cover colours for a few reasons- 1. 351 GT motors had blue - they were 4v (4 barrell carby) & T code on the plate 2. 351 in XA & XB - non GT were K code & all had these orange covers & were 2V (2 barrel carby). FYI the 302 in these years had a engine code of Y on the compliance/build plates & a different shade of orange (more red). 3. Where my initial confusion came from stems from the XC range from mid 1976 (all full pollution spec motors by now). Now both 302 & 351 were BOTH 4 barrel carby motors (and lower HP ratings..) There was no K code or GT motor in the XC, the 351/5.8 was now the T code & inherited blue rocker covers. The only other V8 in the xc range the 302 had orange covers. A lot of people repaint there covers in the xa/xb to emulate the blue from the GT - original 351-2V cars will have orange like these. I took this car to the GT club ow WA xa/xb expert & he was blown away by its originality & verified everything I have stated about this car - its a 99% rust free unrestored car - easily one of the best he's ever seen. Survivor car magazine want to do a feature on it. As far as the wheels go, yes I would love to put some 15x10 & 15x8's on it, but in the new year I'm considering putting it up for sale - (without having an auction, what the hell would it be worth though!) & I want to fix some other things up first. (grille was cut for some spotlights & the horn doesnt work). Then I think, why the hell would I sell this I must be mad! cheers
  9. Just picked up this 2 owner totally unrestored factory original 75 Falcon GS 351. All original - everywhere, 99% rust free. Its had a paint touch up on one rear guard, but thats it - Paint is amazing for a 42 year old car - especially one of these! The 351/5.8 litre motor has never been out of the car - it still has its original fuel pump! Owning another one of these after 25 years, is a real trip down memory lane & I think they are very nice to look at too.

  11. Yeah, my stock 2016 Golf R was in the low 20's with just a piggyback tuning box - would have been a mid 12sec car easily - spun up all 4 with launch control too :-)
  12. Looks awesome, but I just can't bring myself to own a turbo version of the same car I owned 14 years ago. I love turbo performance cars more than NA, but a 997 s1 c2 is the only Porsche I'm seriously interested in buying at the moment. Cheers
