Well as mentioned in this thread:http://www.fordmods.com/off-topic-f6/what-would-it-be-worth-AUIII-wagon-36000km-t123707.html I have inherited an AU wagon with 36000km on the clock.
Thanks to a d***head junkie and a bit of clumsy driving from the deceased here are some pics of just after being washed after sitting for a year.

I have so far obtained a right side passenger door and tailgate to replace the dented door & tailgate.
I have now fitted the tailgate, this will be cleaned up when the rear quarter panels are panel beated/painted, I wont fit the right side passenger door yet as it's maroon and I want it painted white.

Well plan is so far to get the body dent free and the one shade of WINTER WHITE, I do have a spare 5.0L with an explorer intake sitting in the shed but I'm thinking of keeping this as an i6 as I the ECU is off my old NC and I did not keep the AUTO ECU as I still want to drop this engine in my EB then eventually rebuild the original engine in the EB.

I have being looking around for AU XR/FAIRMONT GHIA seats to replace the FORTE seats, other then that I can't decide which front end to have, choices are if I can find the parts:
Keep the standard series III grille
convert to XR front end
convert to FAIRLANE front end which I have seen on a ute:

More people paid for a ride in a VT commodore then an AU Falcon so the VT is superior.
