To BA or not BA

I am just getting back into Fords after periods of seperation. Believe it or not I bought a brand new Phase 2 (vermillon fire as I think back over 30 years) but as a youngster couldn't eventually afford the petrol in the 36 gallon tank even when fuel was cheap way back then. But then again, I went flat out or was parked :)

I next awoke some years later and had an XC GXL 351 fully worked from from to back. Then I lost interest again. Having recently acquired an absolutely pristine ( and I mean faultless) EB 6 CPI auto and added mags, good rubber, top end audio, brakes etc, my mind wandered to spending more money on this thing or going to a new BA V8 or something. So the question, buy a new one and lose bulk money once I drive out the door or sink a lot of money into what I have?

Cheers

^^^ What he said^^^

A Series 3 TE/TS50 is a great buy at the moment. The last of the windsors, proven engine, and they look awesome.

In my opinion, If the EB is faultless and you are happy wait until series II BA, if there is not much difference between the two then haggle hard on a last of the series I and you should lessen the instant driveway drive-a-way depreciation hit.

Welcome to Ford Forums Rev, I have to agree with laminge here.
There are still a few T3s around even brand new AU III XRs if you dig around.

They're still a damn good car and great value for money.
