Good day all,

Trying to find out if anyone knows of a XF Falcon conversion to a Ghia interior and also the mod that was done to drop the wall straight down in the Falcon ute and also the installation of long range tanks in a ute?

Yep i'm going to try to reinvent a XF Fairmont Ghia ute with long range tanks!

Any help greatly accepted.

Thanks

G'day mate, I've pretty much converted my XF GL Sedan to Ghia spec. the seats just bolt straight in, and the dash comes out as a complete unit, and will plug straight into the GL loom and give u all the wiring u need for the electric windows and power mirrors and stuff, I've fitted the power mirrors to my car but I havent fitted the windows, shouldnt be too hard to do though, the hardest part will be making the holles in your doors for the wiring.

Well I have new Ghia doors so easy unbolt and rehang.

But I'm starting to think about a 5 speed manual changeout and maybe a more economical engine.

Any ideas?

I've gpt futre plans of putting a 4.0i OHC out of an EF/EL into my car, but the body shell I've got is worse for wear, so I wanna get another shell before I do that. I've changed to a 5 speed manual in my car (it was an auto) and it was the best thing I ever did to the car. It woke it right up.

I hear that there are a few differences between the standard XF and a Ghia?

Any help?

The interior is pretty much totally different.

Different seats, totally different dash, different console to a GL, steering wheel, door trims, power windows, interior light, pretty much the works.

The exterior is pretty much the same across the range. There are a few specific differences (chrome trim around the bootlid, for example) but nothing totally noticable.

The XH outback pack had long range tanks, try the wreakers.
