    XP falcon deluxe coupe

    Well, this happened. After selling my Barra Ute I decided I'm having a break from modified cars , so when this sorta became available I jumped on the chance. First and foremost a massive thanks to pf'er big-mac for selling it to me.

    Myself and Aaron Hogan drove up to Canberra on Tue, then yday drove it back down the Hume to Melbourne. Old girl didn't miss a beat, Sat at 55-57 mph, even getting roughly 10 L/100km.

    Run down on car. Feb 66 broadmeadows built xp coupe with 170 ci motor and bw35 trans. It's artic white with palomino trim. It's extremely original and relatively unmolested. It looks to have had an extensive renovation say 10-15 years ago with fresh paint, has all the chrome, even has the original motor (that I can tell). It's by no means a concourse car, but very very honest. Underneath and boot is as dry as can be. Only mods are aftermarket brake booster and disc brakes (stops crazy good for car this old), rear Venetians and a cheap eBay heater. Actually, has a temporary 3 core mustang rad and thermofan.

    There's a host of tiny little things, a lot minor cosmetics that will keep me busy otherwise, just jump in cruise and enjoy

    Main to do list
    -fix front seat insert panels, split at seems
    -fix crack in dash pad
    -sort a weeping trans pan
    -recore original tad
    -get heater working
    -paint correction remove minor swirls and scratches

    I've stolen some of bigmac's pics. I'll get some more nicer shots in next few days

      Nice man looks good! Interior looks mint, I like the contrast in the door panel! (never thought I'd say I like a brown car interior!) :p

        Nice looking ol' coupe...will be a nice change for you.

        Got to love classic style & those rear quarters.
        an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

            It's called palomino. Lol. But yes, lots of brown and beige. It's different to normal red you see with the white cars

                  Re orig engine. Look at left shock tower number and the eng number( on left of engine block between the fuel pump and bellhousing.
                  If match is orig eng.

                  170 number starts with a D..

                        My wife had either an XP or XM coupe as a wedding car.
