Yeh this is it Im gonna do a full retro converion on the ED Falcon.
I recon a column shift and 3 speed gearbox, drum brakes allround, no ABS thats for pooftas.

A 220 pursuit motor and vynal bench seats, yeah and get rid of that padded steering wheel for a solid moulded one, now that s amans steering wheel.

Get rid of the radials and stick on some crossply razorblades and put on some rear leaf springs, now thats a real mans car.... :twisted:

lol...yer u sure thats legal to go drums all round on a car that wasnt fitted with them? dunno some laws are odd

i dont really know why u want to do it but mk have fun. how about u add a crank to the front, will save carrying around a heavy battery ;) and while you are at that add a spot for a 3rd person to sit between the driver n passenger...i loved that idea! dangerous but awsome!

I recon the 220 pursuit motor should have a single barrel carter carb and steel rims and a high restriction inch and 7/8ths exhaust with a cast iron manifold.

It wil be the coolest retro ED about
