I am looking at getting rid of the V8, in favour of a 6cyl manual E series.
I wanted to put a manual in the Ghia however, had no offers and don't really have the time for the mod.

Car is:

White
5.0 Windsor V8
On LPG, LG V8 Covertor/Sprintgas Mixer combo (roughly costing $6 per 100 of freeway driving)
210,000k's
Full custom 3 inch exhaust which is very loud.
Kitted 4 speed BTR auto
Full Grey Mako leather
All the ghia options p/windows, cruise, climate, leather Wrapped steering wheel and handbrake premo sound/amp and chrome stuff
*Tyres at 80+%

The only problems with the car , if you could call them that are:-

*The clear coat is starting to peel off bonnet slightly, I have attempted to stop it *lol*
*Drivers power window very slow, but works
*Missing premo Subby, due to Gas tank
*stone chips on front bar
* Drivers seat needs the bolt underneath welded- base wobbles a bit.
* two small (under 1cm) holes in rear leather seat.
will need just about nothing for Roadworthy, maybe a ball joint or two

These "problems" are absolutely nothing. The car goes extremely well, and uses very little LPG, gas tank still has 9 years of service before its due for stamp. Family car, used for work drives during week- not thrashed. All in all a great highway Cruiser that sounds great.

$5,200 ONO

If interested in a swap see my swap thread to see what Im after.
wanted-ford-parts-f18/wtd-vic-e-series-xr6-must-be-manual-swap-for-v8-ghia-t78690.html

I will also add, if anyone still wants a V8 auto for a 5spd swap- and will help me install box- I will then keep the car no drama's.

Any Q's PM me. cheers :wink:

Nah mate, I am just keeping it in good nick and rego'd because its a good car.


And yeah....no worries I'll give you my car for a clapped out old 4L and a box.... :shock: :shock: wtf?

Maybe if it was in a actual car....and it was half decent- would consider.
