I've had the car for 6 years. Very reliable. It is my daily car.
It made 263rwhp after a dyno tune from BPT on a switch chip eliminator.
Mods are
GT40P heads, cam and roller rockers from 220kw AUII XR8
70mm Tickford throttle body with AU TPS with E series plug.
EL GT MAF with 24lb Ford motorsport injectors.
BPT race series under drive pulleys.
Yella Terra flywheel
Xtreme Clutch.
Cooler thermostat.
19" Dark Argent copies. Front tyres brand new. Rear tyres are good.
Slotted DBA rotors and greenstuff pads.
3" exhaust after the Y pipe.
Koni shocks (non adjustable) and king springs superlows.

Standard stuff is Explorer manifold, 3.45 LSD diff and EL GT extractors.

Gets around 500-550ks per tank. I do about 1/3 driving through suburb then its onto the highway.

Has leather velour interior from an EF Fairmont Ghia.
Momo steering wheel factory option.
Momo leather all black gear knob
Chrome doors handles and chrome hand brake button
EL GT black pebble leather gear stick cover.
Tickford head light covers for EL XRs (rare as)
EF tail lights.

Factory mid level sound system with 6 stacker in the boot. (with code).

Recently had engine belt changed, throw out bearing changed. Two new front tyres, rears are good.
Had a new air con compressor and condensor fitted by Ford 18 months ago. Works like a charm. Has new front bushes fitted to lower control arms.

If the selling price is met it will come with 4 stock rims (15" stockies) which are painted silver and never been put on the car since painted (they are like new),
new radiator overflow container (in packet),
brand new (still in packet) left and right rear 1/4 windows.
EL tail lights,
Fairmont centre console (no lid.)
new red side stripes (including side indicators) except rear bumper.
Will also come with the E7 heads that came with it and rockers, push rods, throttle body, maf and 19lb injectors.
Spare coil,
Code reader for faults with manual. Made by someone on these forums.
Engine cover (currently not fitted due to polished engine badge in place.)

Bad points; front rims have a mark each from monkeys who change tyres. They will easily come out.
Clear coat starting to come off on the top part of the rear bumper.
A rear bush squeaks when going over a sharp bump.

I would say excellent condition car.

Reason for selling is I don't drive fast, I lug 3 kids around and this car is wasted on me. I bought all the stuff to do it up but I've become a family man and the car enthusiast is dying.

I would like for it to go to a good home with someone who won't thrash it.

Any questions please PM me. If you would like a look thats fine. Weekends only. Time wasters need not apply.


Idle sound

If you want to negotiate on price no spares will be included.
