John Tearle shared a memory to the group: Ford Falcon Coupe XA-XC Enthusiasts . — Ford Falcon Coupe XA-XC Enthusiasts

saw this a few years ago ( came up in memories) - for those who know Adelaide, this house was directly opposite Target Fulham and was boarded up for years, used to drive past it every day. One day the garage is open and these two have been wheeled out (look past the ute..) No idea what happened to them but not long after the house was bulldozed so hopefully they were saved...

    Things are not always as they seem.

    If you are every tempted to buy things off ebay for your coupe do not I repeat DO NOT deal with people that insist on getting a direct deposit because they aren't there to make PayPal rich for doing nothing.

    All nicely painted over the rust with holes in the bottom.

    On other news anyone got a spare one of these that they are willing to sell?

          I go to the Geelong all Ford day most years. Every time l go l check out the rear windows on the coupes. If there are 30 coupes, 28 of them have the bottom corners of the window rubber sticking up. Why is this ?

          Is it 1- after market rubbers not as good as original 2- Poor fitting

          3- Most coupes have had the section at the base of the window replaced / rebuilt and this section has not been made properly.

            Hi All Assistance Needed to Find Cobra 068 — Ford Falcon Coupe XA-XC Enthusiasts

            Hi All - Assistance Needed to Find Cobra #068

            I have been contacted by a young lady in Port Pirie SA who is getting married in March 2018. Cobra #068 was her husbands to be late fathers car and that was sold approximatly 10 years ago from the Port Pirie region after he was unfortunatly killed in an industial explosion with two other workers. I remember this one, it was devastating.

            The SA rego was SKD.798 and she would love to find the car to have it in her wedding and supprise not only her new husband but her mother in law who was left with three young kids to bring up alone.

            I thought that this car may still be in SA as it comes up on the SA ezy reg website as under historic rego but currenly unregisterd, however it could be anywhere.

            Its a good story this one, If anyone knows the where abouts please confidentially let me know via PM.

            Any help is greatly appreciated.

            Brad

              My first message on this site. Unfortunately i sold my XA coupe 30 years ago this year. It is gone for good i have since found out, and have regretted selling it every day since. In the next few months i am looking to purchase a new project and am looking for an XC GS Hartop for a restoration project. Would be looking to buy this in about April to June this year so have a bit or time to look around. Will not waste anyone's time, either a yes or a no. But not interested in any serious rust problems, rust around the usual bits ok. Would prefer a matching numbers 302 or 351 the rest is not so important. PM me if interested to sell. Many thanks

                I was looking in my Hardtop that i bought new in 1974, when in the glove box i found the ford brochure that i used to originally order it from the dealer, i saved the brochure because i was quite taken with the vinyl roof on the green fairmont on the second page.

                so i thought i did share it with you people

                        Hello Ford Falcon Enthusiasts — Ford Falcon Coupe XA-XC Enthusiasts

                        Hello Ford Falcon Enthusiasts,

                        (Please don't delete admin, I really would like to know more information about Falcon's. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!)

                        Let me introduce myself, my name is Grace and I live in the US. I have always loved various cars, but usually stuck with the Chevy side of things. I love all cars equally, but recently I have been on the hunt for my dream car. It used to be a 1967 GT500 Shelby Mustang but that all changed when I saw Mad Max. I instantly fell in love with Falcon's! Now the 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT Coupe has stolen my heart! I am aware that the US got the mustangs in the 70's, and Australia got the Falcons. I have seen a few Falcon's here in the US but they're all 69 or lower. I am looking for a 73-78 Falcon. At this point, depending on the situation, I don't care what year as long as it generally looks the same as a 73.

                        My question is, how many 73-78 falcon's are left in Australia? Are they rare, or slightly common, or in between? If so, what does a roller or a project Falcon usually cost? I am not looking for a completely restored one, I would rather do that on my own since I have a 460 engine laying around now.

                        I also want to say, thank you for allowing me to join this group!! It actually was an honor that I was accepted in this group!! I appreciate all your time and effort! Especially if you answer my silly question! :)

                          The rules of the group are in the pinned post.

                          This is a great group and we want to keep it that way so in 2017 we are taking a hard line.

                          You want to contribute Great! ! Post away.. but we won't stand for anymore bullshit. We are all here for the love of these great beasts and there wont be any...but i was just saying...and its unfair crap. Stay on topic and stick to the rules and the group will continue to grow. But i personally have had enough. Troublemakers will be shown the door. Whether you have been a member for years or a few days. Enough is enough.

Dom bought this car brand new and still had the racing stickers on the car when he first seen it at City Ford. The car will be staying in his family for many years to come. I had the pleasure of getting it going and buffing up and detailing it for his funeral today. What great car. RIP old mate.

                                Was just watching "Jay Lenos Garage" and there is a group over there near Las Vagas that have cars made up straight out of Mad Max but what was interesting was when Jay said .....Is that a Falcon from Australia? The guy replied it was Australias answer to the Mustang. It was a RHD coupe made up to look just like the Mad Max coupe. Interesting.

                                  Need advice please. I can't get my speedo to work. I have changed everything except the gear. The cable is new and it works but when connected to the guage i can hear it meshing as if the cable is short. It's all connected properly so I'm ruling that out so I'm thinking its the gear in the box as it's out of a c4 and I'm running a single rail. Problem is a can't find a gear advertised for single rail, only toploader and bw 3&4 speed. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is doing my head in.

                                    Trans Am Race Engineering provides the best and only genuine Superlite Race Wheels.

                                    Our wheels are built around and from the original moulds that Performance sold us when they shut down, they were not bought out.

                                    The new 'cast look' finish is a huge hit and many choose these over the smooth finish, adding to the originality of the wheels to the era.

                                    With our new process of casting wheels we are able to achieve a much stronger wheel so they stand up to the abuse of racing, not to mention anything on the street.

                                    Unlike many wheel companies we have our wheels in blank and are able to suit any offset/backspacing within the range.

                                    With this we are able to also machine any 4 and 5 stud pattern within 98mm -130mm.

                                    We have available 13x7, 14x6/7, 15x7, 15x8, 17x8

                                    With 17x9.5 and 15x10 coming soon.

                                        Well she's on the road! But got some issues, done a 300km maiden voyage and went ok considering it hasn't seen the road for 25plus years. It's got 300hp at the treads and 500FtLb of torque but if I jump on it from a standing start even when it only had 235/60/14's under it, it won't even spin the wheels! What's everyone's thought? It's running a FMX with 2500 stally (which I don't think is doing what it's spose to)

                                          Hey guys, just wondering if anyone can help me with welding tips.

                                          I'm using 0.8mm unshielded wire with Argon gas.

                                          I can't seem to get an evan flow.

                                          The wire feed is almost down on zero, and if I turn it up any higher it will push me away from the work piece.

                                          If I turn the amps up it will blow holes everywhere.

                                          What am I doing wrong?
