Yep, as said already, quite rare. Took me a couple of years to find a genuine one.

Should look like this.

Yep that's it.

So what you have there as a 'donor' car, could possibly be a genuine XR6 Wagon, the rarest E Series variant made.

Check the diff, as it should be a 3.45 LSD.

Doupt its a genuine XR6, (well maybe the tailgate) the diff is an LSD though, but someone has been smoking it up too much and she is abit worn :lol: but the center is going to be rebuilt and fitted to my ED 8-)

Oh and its also a factory manual, ECU code 1DAD

The spoilers were only fitted to ED and EF XR Wagons, of which quite limited numbers were made. The E series XR wagons are one of the rarest modern fords around.

You can buy fibreglass reproductions, but the real deal is rubber.

There was a Fordmods Member based in Melbourne that was able to do one, but I seem to have lost his details.

No worries Ben, I will keep my eyes open. I imagine I'd also need stronger struts so the damm tailgate doesn't fall and brain me :) .

BTW Awesome wagon, very insperational.
