Ride: Falcon

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Its a xd fairmont sedan, silver fox paint job ( its actually light metallic green but looks silver ), front bumper has minor scrape, car is very str8, not a lot of rust, very minor rust underneath where drivers guard meets drivers door, 3 5cent piece bits of surface rust on the roof, and a 5 cent piece hole in the engine bay, xe front, xf rear, recaro drivers seat but needs retrim, lowered with koni adjustables, Reset and lowered rear springs
** 1" drop blocks at rear
Lovells Front springs
Holden front stub axles (to lower the front), its generally a clean looking car, but apart from shiny paint is a bit average, chrome 12 slotters, disc lsd, ( not 9 inch ), C4 auto with stage 1 shift kit, new 2,5 inch redback single system, try-y extractors, mild cam, super torker manifold, now heres the intresting bit, its got 2x cfi throttle bodies on a adaptor running a motec comp ( mechanical injection i would imagine? ), twin o2 rush filters, on a dyno this car made 133rw kw, which actually seems rather s**t comsidering whats been done, im told its due to vavle boucne?, anyway guys i have given you as much info as i can and i want to know whether its worth a trip from melbourne to canberra to buy it, he wants 3700ono with reg and i assume rwc,
just want your input on this car b4 i commit to it
cheers lads

just for some idea i can often get EFs from work in fairly good nick for $4000 ish... and a good EBII-ED is more like $2500-$3000, so id expect it to be around that mark. Rust is dangerous in a falcon of that vintage tho..

You say it's an XD with XE front and XF rear?

If so, I would be going over the rear 5 times. XF tailights never bolted straight into the XD/E's, a bit of body modifying was needed, make sure this job was done properly and not just slapped together.

If it's a proper job... bonus!

sounds like you would be buying into too many hassles you dont need.

for that kind of money youll find 100 nice v8 falcons in the trader. just be patient and buy one that people who dont know what there doin have left it the hell alone.

my opinion at this time of night with this many beers doesnt mean much but id rather buy something 'un-tinkered' with anyday!
