  1. Depends on whether you are aiming for pro street as the look What about a shaker? Would look ok on a flat non NASA hood
  2. He should have said "One careful owner", the other 6 were rough and beat the crap out of it.
  3. Actually if you have a close look you will see a lot of 71-73. honeycomb grill, nasa scoops, the front guard eyebrows. When you see the 74 2 door variant like gpierce's I think you can see where Ford aus leant on the style of the 71-73.
  4. For our USA friends, this is a bit of aussie Ford sedan for you. http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/tamaree/cars-vans-utes/xb-falcon-sdn/1135502453 Check the engine 351c, yates heads and quad webber 48IDA's - how good would that sound!
  5. I think that is my favourite line as well. The other bit I like is that $2k for paint and material. I am thinking that the labour might increase that by 3 fold as a start.
  6. I viewed this car when it was on CL last month. The seller is not accurate in the description. Examples, rust in panels, bad bondo repairs, interior trim and panels missing, all VIN plates not matching, missing engine compartment systems. Could be a good car for someone, put it is not quite all that as he describes. Wow, he talks it up as being a seriously solid car. The paint looks average in the pics - very much like its a single stage metallic with no pop at all which you could forgive, but if its actually got rust when he is claiming zero.....disappoint!

  8. Kurt what ended up with your M code? I was enjoying that thread.
  9. Whats a nice restored J code worth though? And I guess it depends on whether you want to restore to representative or concourse.
  10. Thanks Dave At the moment I am trying to get a feel for the market. My preference is a 71 M or Q code then followed by the 72. Yours looks like a great solid car to start with but I am still early in my decisions about holding off and seeing if the car I want can be found in Aus or whether I need to go to the USA. There is a good chance i will be in the US this year sometime for a holiday. At the moment I am trying to not get impatient but wait until I find the car I want. PS the M code 71 motor was the same used in our Falcon GT whilst the Boss 351 was prettyt much our Falcon GTHO motor.
  11. https://swmi.craigslist.org/cto/5891402462.html Boss 351. Seems nice
  12. Yes they did but if you want a daily driver the LHD car is just a bit harder to live with so there is still some reasons to have a RHD conversion. I think Ozcoupe has bought the car with a partial RHD conversion commenced and no doubt got it pretty cheap as a result ::thumb::
  13. Hi again Are these pretty typical prices for driver quality cars in the US? I know nothing about Craigslist but imagine Buyer Beware is the major caveat and you need a local agent and good inspection to avoid rip offs? http://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/5905535030.html http://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/5921945078.html
  14. In Australia the common source is our 302c rods which a 6 inch. Did have a look at this some time ago and the downside is you need a custom piston yet the word is no appreciable increase in power to be worth the cost.
