G'day Guys,
I'm new to Ford Mods but am loving it already.
I have an XD ESP With a V8 in it. I wasn't sure if it was a real ESP so i got it looked at by a professional, he said it was indeed an esp but the 351 and gearbox were not original...
any ideas on value????

Thanks fellas,
I'm now thinking about just restoring it, would i be better off looking for a 6cyl like it came out of the factory or sticking with the 351?????

stick with the v8, price wont change much if not go down if its got a 6 cyl, they are worth a little bit of money but the only ones worth a fortune are the original matching numbers 351's

iv driven a number of stock xd/xe 351's and now own a modified one and my worked one is probably only up to 190fwkw

The gold snow flakes were on the XE, the XD had Globes, same as Cobra and HO III. Also interoir instruments should be red, not green like the GL

Thanks Guys!!!!
this info is priceless!!!!
i love this site!
i think i'll stick with the V8, the worst thing is i already researched the rims needed and bathurst globes are about $1500 a set from what i've read, bloody expensive set of rims but i think they'll be worthy...
thanks guys!!!!!
