Geetings all,I didn't know they made panel vans with tail gates; I'm sure I saw one at the local wreckers. Was I dreaming or does it need a bit more water in it?Davo 46.

I'm 99% sure ford did it too.

are you certain it was a panel van? theres heaps of canopy's that look like a factory van!

I think I may have to go back to the wreckers and have a look, just to satisfy my own curiosity. I drove new panel vans from XW to XD but they all had doors. I reckon a tail gate model would be neat. Davo 46.

All XW/Y vans had tailgates instead of barndoors,bar a few ex divi(?) vans,but they where converted outside the factory.So no factory barn door xw/y vans.

And as mentioned the tailgates were an option untill xf.

:D Falcon had the tail gate for the XR, XT, XW and XY vans but changed to barn doors for the XA. I don't ever recall seeing tail gates on the XA or XB but it was an option on the XC van and standard on the XC Sundower van. From memory the XD Sundower also had the tail gate while the rest of the range had the barn doors.
