XC Fairmont, needs to go asap!!

Advertising for a mate who doesn't have internet.

He has a XC Fairmont sedan, factory 6cyl auto, but currently has no motor or box, not sure if he still has the original motor, forgot to ask.

Yes it has rust in all the factory XC places, front floor pans, sills and 1/4's

but easily fixed if you have the tools and the time.

Interior is red leather (not vinyl) bucket seats and tbar auto. (dont have pics of that) but trim is pretty average condition. what you see is what you get, selling as a roller.

Priced at $1500 firm for quick sale for roller only

May be able to negotiate for an engine and trans too.

Call him only on 0498669881

XF Wagon, needs to go!!!!

I am advertising this for someone who doesnt have the internet, please call them on 0498669881 if you have any questions or want to make an offer,

My mate has a XF wagon he is trying to sell,

nothing special about it, just a basic XF gl wagon, 6cyl, carby, auto, air and steer.

All original, never been modified or messed with, even has the factory stereo.

As a bonus it has a brand new diff fitted only couple years ago.

All it needs to get back on the road is a tidy up, rego and tyres and she should be good to go, drives well.

So if keen call him only on 0498669881 thanks.

Lacated in Parafield Gardens, price is negotiable.

      Custom Ford 12 slots and tyres

      Hey everyone, up for sale here is my set of semi custom Ford 12 slots. I really like these wheels however it has come to my attention that to clear brakes on an e series diff, which I want to put in, you need 15s at least.

      Details:

      14x7 all the way round. Have been sandblasted, primered and painted satin black. Centre caps have also been painted satin black with a chrome bullet put on. Tyres are 205/70 at the front and 225/70 at the back, obviously being BF Goodrich Radial T/As. Rears are like new and Fronts are about 50-70%. Also comes with full set of chrome lug nuts

      Asking 700neg, located Aberfoyle Park. Might seem like a lot but the tyres alone are worth a pretty penny. Don't be afraid to flick me an offer, cheers.

              Hey guys, just picked up this XE ute and will be wrecking it out. CONSOLE AND RUBBER BOOT ARE NOT FOR SALE. Everything else you see pictured is.

              Notable parts:

              Complete 4spd conversion, literally everything except console

              Injected 4.1 on dedicated gas with a gas research carb

              Extractors and sports exhaust

              XE Fairmont (?) seats and retrimmed ute door trims in okay condition

              Brand new tailgate

              Bullbar

              The car is fairly rusty, however it does run and drive pretty good and is currently on SA Rego, so can sell the whole car and you can drive it if you want. Located in Aberfoyle Park.

                SOLD Seeking expressions of interest or 5000 ono for the current running gear...

                (SOLD) Seeking expressions of interest or $5000 ono for the current running gear in my XD which is soon to be removed to fit the matching numbers clevo which i recently bought from the previous owner, and is the only reason for selling. Fully rebuilt less than 10 thousand k's ago, very healthy with all receipts, too much to list here. I thought it may be easier to sell if it can be heard running/driving. Package will include carby to sump including engine mounts extractors C6 and matching custom tailshaft, only things not included are radiator, shifter + linkages and trans crossmember + speedo sender which are all the factory XD items anyway. Anyone who is seriously interested and wants to know details feel free to inbox, No i wont freight it this is purely for people who want to come and look at this stage

                  If anyone actually interested inbox me

                  For sale is my Barra turbo swapped xf falcon. Interior is very clean and body reasonably straight previous owner who I bought the car off with a blown standard x flow engine attempted to paint rear and front bar black at home so sanded back and went over in same colour coded paint but needs a good top coat and clear coat still to be mint. Overal not to bad few small Carpark dings as expected from a 30 year old car. All work done by myself and heinrichs performance with all receipts have spent thousands and thousands to have this conversion done due to a lot of custom made parts. A lot spent. Good old 12 slotters on it with good tread still. 3inch cat back upgraded injectors and pump No rush to sell but would like to see back what it owes me, all original dash still works to. Aircon needs to be re connected as wasn't done but easy fix $10,500

                    Windsor original 2bbl manifold and Holley 500

                    This is a factory manifold on a Windsor, date coded 68. Guessing it'll be a 289/302 off of a Mustang, doubt it's a Falcon but I'm not 100% sure. Has what looks to be a 1 inch carb spacer and a 500 Holley 2bbl sitting on top. Both are in fine condition, the carb like most could use a kit but there's no corrosion on the bottom and it looks to be in good condition.

                    Also have a cool ratty old school 12(?)" air clean that can be included for the right price.

                    Located in Aberfoyle Park SA. Happy to assist buyer with transport, cash on pickup or bank deposit is fine. Price is 250 neg.

                          Anybody after manual conversion parts? I have:

                          -Crossflow T5 flywheel

                          -Crossflow single rail or T5 bell housing & clutch fork. It's a single rail one that's been drilled and tapped for a T5.

                          -T5 and single rail clutch cables

                          -T5 into XD cross member, T5 into XG cross member and not sure what the other is.

                          -3 sandwich plates and 3 inspection covers. One set is crossflow T5, one set is 4L T5, not sure what the other is.

                          $100 for the lot. Basically I want $50 for the bellhousing and $50 for the flywheel, so I will separate.

                              for locating/recovery of my stolen XY

                              This car was the first of its kind to be converted to fuel injection. It had the drive line from an EL XR8 including disc brakes retractable seatbelts and the dash was also from an XR8.

                              It has been in a number of magazines including the first ever issue of the all Ford edition of street machine.

                              You might've also seen it at summernats, extreme horsepower, all Ford day or the Holden and Ford show.

                              Stolen late 2009

                              The lowlife who bought my stolen car had other rare Ford's.

                                          1982 Ford XE Falcon GL

                                          Up for sale now is a 1982 Ford XE Falcon Gl. Some of you might’ve seen this on eBay, we called the seller up and bought it thinking it was the same colour as my XE as I wanted to swap the bonnet and boot, turns out it wasn’t. This car is overall in very good and very original condition. The exterior of the vehicle presents extremely well, the paint is great, the colour being Ivory Cream, and the car is very straight. Couple little rust marks, and a bit of rust in the usual Falcon spot on the bottom of the front mudguard. No significant fading or dents anyway. Sits on the stock Falcon wheels. Interior is just as good as the exterior, having the Chamois colour. Seats are almost perfect, just a couple stains that will easily be fixed with a dry clean or similar. Console is the letdown of the interior, as the little tray bit behind the shifter has fell off at some point, and a big crack has been fixed on it as well. Carpet is in very good condition as well. Car is a 250 Crossflow mated with a C4 automatic, with a very low 195,000ks. Appears to be a factory tow package as well, having a tow bar and of course the C4. Engine runs great, starts easily, doesn’t blow any smoke. The car itself drives excellently as these do when in good condition. The transmission shifts nice and smoothly. Air con and heater both appear to work great, also has a CD player that is functional. Comes with a few of the add ons from the era as seen in pictures, however if you don’t want these the price can be negotiated considering, and will sell separately if anyone is interested. Car is walk in rego in SA, with the plates seen in the last picture as well.

                                          Located Aberfoyle Park, South Australia. If interested send a text on 0401 249 877, or add me on Facebook so we can talk (As I’m under 18 Facebook doesn’t allow you to message me unless we’re friends), happy to give more info or pics. Happy to arrange a viewing for potential buyers. Note car is currently unregistered.

                                              Sunvisor to suit XD and on, possible earlier not sure. Overall in great condition, no dents whatever. Paint was pretty shagged, so I've been in the process of filler primering it. Realised I didn't want it on my car about half way through. Will come with the rest of the can of primer, which should be enough to finish the job, ready to slap some paint on. As seen on the pictures just a little bit left on the end, and will need a sand and re doing in a couple spots where I messed up :/ Comes with all the proper mounting brackets and screws, which from what I've seen is pretty rare. Is also a double skinned one, as seen in one of the photos, which once again I don't see to often.

                                              Asking 150, but don't be afraid to send me an offer. Located Aberfoyle Park. I'm available most of the time. Cheers.

                                                So i bought a v8 tbar from ebay. Said in the write up that "pictures form part of the description". Looked good in pictures. Well it arrived today.......grrr.... May as well chuck it in the bin. Has no bushes on the shaft at the base. The bit that locks it into each gear is missing so it just flops around. And chrome in shaft is aweful. But he also mentions in his write up that all items purchased "as is, no refunds" so now I'm stuck with a bloody $100 door stop.

                                                Don't suppose anyone rebuilds the tbar shifters????

                                                    I am thinking of sending an xe Ford sedan to the scrap yard for crushing, but I thought someone on this site may want her, so I'm posting this just in case any one does, extremely rusty in body, interior is mouldy as water has gotten inside via the rust holes, engine hasn't run in five years and brakes maybe rusted stiff because I am unable to push her fowards or backwards, the car is an six cylinder fuel injection engine, the car is in extremely poor condition, so I can understand if nobody is interested in her, it is with a heavy heart that I'm getting rid of her because once upon a time she was a good reliable car despite her rust problems but now she's just lawnart so to speak, I don't want to part it out I would just like to dispose of whole car the price is reflective of scrap metal prices ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS will make it yours if you want her BE WARNED she's rusted to the Max and interior is mouldy, whole car wrecking no part out sales sorry Iwont be offended if nobody wants her due to bad condition, she will just go to the car crushers, the car is located at kilburn 5084

                                                      Located Aberfoyle Park

                                                      New throttle cable

                                                      New exhaust tip

                                                      New Kenwood head unit with CD, USB and Aux

                                                      New radio antenna

                                                      New bonnet struts

                                                      Exterior of the car is in overall excellent condition, with no big hits anywhere. Few marks here and there, and the back doors are in pretty poor condition, but everything else is good. Has a few small surface rust spots around the car, nothing serious though.

                                                      Interior is overall in fair condition. It's a bench seat, column auto car. Dash is perfect with no cracks anywhere, and no sun fading. As seen in the photos, seat has a pretty sizeable chunk out of it, however this doesn’t affect the driving at all. As stated, brand new carpet has been put in. Hood lining will need regluing, however, again, does not have an effect on drivability. Door trims are in perfect condition. Back of the van is in very good condition. Was a painter’s van at some time, so has a lot of paint splattered in the back, however this is just visual, and overall its fantastic. The heavy duty tub liner means you can have stuff in the back without it rolling around, and also prevents damage to the floor.

                                                      Car drives really well, engine runs smooth and transmission shifts nicely. Has plenty of grunt to haul around tradie tools, and capable of towing too, with the heavy duty tow bar. Suspension is great throughout, no knocks or bangs, and with heavy duty one tonner rear suspension, can easily handle weight in the back. Steering is great, with no whines or complaining. Brakes are good all round.

                                                      Selling car for a friend. Located Aberfoyle Park, South Australia. More than happy for genuine parties to have a look and a test drive. Please call after 4pm, or send a text or message.

                                                              Up for sale is my 1980 XD falcon rolling shell, body is fairly straight for its age has a few small rust spots but can easily be repaired, the car comes with heaps of spare parts an motors, the car was originally a 200xflow with plans of putting a worked 302 into it but, due to unforeseen circumstances we have to part with it.

                                                              Car comes with full set of rust free doors and guards.

Features the original and rare 3.3 litre ( 200 cube, code V ) , 5 speed ( code K ) with power steering , brakes and airconditioning.Has factory heavy duty tow package including newer heavy duty rear springs.

                                                                  The car has been off the road since late 2014 however is walk in rego in South Australia. Runs and drives real nice however motor has a slight miss and does blow smoke under acceleration.Brakes will also need adjustment/bleed however do work fine.

                                                                  Interior is in fantastic condition overall with one VERY small wear mark just visible on drivers seat.

                                                                  Yes body does have some rust... a previous owner has slathered the spots with gobs of silicone as you can see in photos, panels are real straight other than one very small dint in drivers side rear panel. Paint is original and has plenty of small blemishes, looks good for its age however.

                                                                  Price has been set for a quick sale. Happy to deliver car to a transport yard if required.

                                                                    Evening everyone. Have some Bosch spotlights to suit your xd/e/f, or whatever really. Same model number as XE S-Pack lights, though I believe the mounts aren't offset like the XE ones, would still look fine. Also comes with the 'from the 80s' Bosch spotlight covers, in need of a repaint, but you can clearly see they're the right ones. Willing to separate, currently on an auction on ebay, so I'm just open to offers, nothing under $120, and even then would be hesitant. If you search XE Spotlights on ebay you'll find them easy as. Cheers.

Cranked over, sounds a little sluggish but it does sound like it wants to run. Probably needs a fuel top up, and not willing to spend like $20 to find out haha.

                                                                          Notable things include heavy duty towbar, extractors and what I assume is a 2.5" sports exhaust system, whatever size it is its not factory. And a full gas system that's in date for another 6 years. Anything you want, you'll have to take it yourself. Happy to help remove something if need be. Any specific questions I'll be happy to answer. Also has lowered front springs, and Monroe gt shocks all round.

                                                                          Had a lot of interest in the steering wheel, but its not for sale.

Notable things include heavy duty towbar, extractors and what I assume is a 2.5" sports exhaust system, whatever size it is Its not factory. And a full gas system that's in date for another 6 years. Doesn't run currently, was told it's just a dizzy problem. Anything you want, you'll have to take it yourself. Happy to help remove something if need be. Any specific questions I'll be happy to answer. Also had lowered front springs, and Monroe gt shocks all round.

                                                                              So i'm currently stuck on what direction to go in with paint/bodywork on the xd, the original plan was to get the xd front panels i've got sprayed monza red and put them on, but i'm now having second thoughts and contemplating getting a 4" cowl on the xf bonnet and getting an open door respray in a metallic red, something like a cross between cardinal red and monza red. Or just spraying the current bonnet monza red and tidying up the rest of the paintwork which is not that old and still in decent nick. Thoughts?

My 850 DP just seems to run richer and richer, rich bogs when it feels like, sometimes runs great, ALWAYS stinks inside and out of the car and has just generally been a piece of shit since it came out the box about 2 yrs ago. Has been on the dyno re-jetted before but they did a real half arse of it as i've been told by another mechanic, its the right size carb for the engine i just need someone to sort it out! Was told theres a great workshop at marion but now cant remember the name!

                                                                                    even when i upped the idle. it still wouldn't idle on lpg or petrol.

                                                                                    ran like a dog on both fuels.

                                                                                    so changed leads as thought that if its both fuels its electrical .

                                                                                    no change.......

                                                                                    checked all vacuum ,looked for leaks....

                                                                                    all good .

                                                                                    so i put another carbie on it don't know why i thought it would work as it was a problem with both fuels. ? and the lpg only uses the carby for its butterfly and venturie affect.

                                                                                    but it worked car idled fine hmmm.

                                                                                    confused how a carby could fix the lpg

                                                                                    my understanding is the carbie is only used for the throttle butterfly and the Venturi effect that mixes the lpg with air as iv seen plenty of cars with dead carbies still idle and drive on lpg

                                                                                    any ideas and input as to what the problem could have been considering it was affecting both fuels

I wouldn't think so,

                                                                                      But thought I'd ask and get some advice

Two tyres have 5000-10000 Ks left on them, the other three are all illegal, however one of those would do as a spare. Wheels are meshie style, and are a silver and gold look. Overall wheels are in very good condition, a bit of the gold is coming of the centres, and theres a couple scuffs on them. Came off my S Pack if anyone recalls it, after I put the stock S-Pack wheels back on.

                                                                                        Wheels are a 5x114.3 bolt pattern or 5x4.5, and are 14x7. Tyres are 215/65 all around. Comes with 20 mag wheel nuts that are long enough to go through the wheel.

                                                                                          New clutch plate.

                                                                                          New heavy duty clutch.

                                                                                          New tyres on rear.

                                                                                          New bearings all round.

                                                                                          Rebuilt diff.

                                                                                          Completely rebuilt motor.

                                                                                          New seals across every part you could think of.

                                                                                          Gas take only done in 2015, so another 9.8 years to go till it expires.

                                                                                          In total I have spent around $9,500 on the motor alone.

                                                                                          Would like 3k or nearest offer as it was a beautifully smooth car to drive, has been quoted an adverge around 3-4K to get it all done professionally again that includes the respray.
