Ah interesting, so very much, i have to have all safety features, that were used in whatever the car, the engine came from, would that include things like airbags, or not that far?
seatbelts, what a spoil sport. :lol:

haha, yeah mine has the 2 sp auto, no clutch issues maybe, but... :lol:

yeah and 300 sounds more like it, not 40k?
like fair enough, if your going to town or getting it done, but if you plan to do it a little on the cheap side, e.g. do as much yourself as possible.

Also If I was to do a delivery conversion, could I pretty much just do it, as by right, there no real way to prove it wasn't?

If you can swing spanners & work on your car yourself, These things are dead easy to convert.Buy a engine & transmission crossmember kit from Castlemaine rod shop & it all bolts together. I pulled the original running gear out of my ute on a Friday arvo after work, And by lunchtime Sunday, I had it running with the 289 & column shifted C4, LSD, disc brakes etc - But i had everything ready & waiting (The shortened tailshaft, modified LS Centura diff, accelerator linkage, etc)

Your XL is basically an imported American car that had came standard with a 260 - 289 in the USA.

Dunno about the Van conversion - Have a talk to a panelbeater & a vehicle engineer first to see if you will be able to get it registed. I have seen a XP wagon/van conversion rego'd - But that was in NSW. If you go & see QLD roads authority, They will have a list of approved engineers that you can talk to about your planned modifications.

Have a look at this - This guy has a factory US 2 door V8 wagon that he's putting an EA 3.9 & BTR auto that he imported from Australia for it. He's converted the 3.9 to a carby and is running full airbag suspension etc.

It would be pretty good if you could do the same to yours! :D

- Here's 2 more to look at. Both have a good section on early falcons from Australia & the USA.

In one of them, It shows an XP wagon in England that someone had fitted a 2.0 litre out of a Cortina to it! :shock:
