Ride: '99 XH XR6 5 SPEED

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Hi everyone, my names sean. im 19 and im just posting up my new project. so far all the work has been completed by my self. now the project is a 1971 XY FAIRMONT WAGON. came to me as a rolling, completley stripped apart from all guards and glass. i bought another donor wagon, and transplanted all suspension from 1 to the other. Now the car is currently in primer, soon to be the Green Dash Metallic as seen on the new FG falcon. lowered on a nice set of 19" Vouge rims by Rodney Jane Racing. Now the power house is just a stock, for now Tickford Xr6 out of an EL. PROBLEM 1:Engine Mounts, Just with a bit of luck i had an EB 4Litre lying around and worked out they would bolt straight into the XY. that was great. PROBLEM 2: Crossmembers I drilled a single hole through the XY crosmember to allow for EL transmission to bolt through. PROBLEM 3: Intake Manifold, just touching the strut tower. Thinking of a custom intake manifold.

here are some pics,

Gidday.

This looks like a great project. The 4L six should provide plenty of poke in the old girl.

Looking forward to further progress updates.

Cheers
BenJ
