SiX's new project

Hey guys, Ive just purchased my new project car, Late 66 XR Falcon Ute, my old man is the second owner, making me the third, has been converted to an XF carby 4.1 x-flow and bw35 Auto. The body is in pretty good condition, passenger side sill and floor pan need replacing, other than that its very minor here and there. EA bucket seats have been installed along with the centre console but I will be replacing this with the original bench ( after it has been re-upholstered ) I will be registering the ute to make it easier to move around, the front end will be refurbished and a disc brake front end installed, including VH40-44 remote booster and dual master cylinder. The body will then be welded up, straightened and coated in blueprint ( 99% sure anyway ) the engine will be built by gmdestroyer, basic specs will include a custom manifold housing a TO4
The rest of the specs will remain undisclosed for now...
Basically I am aiming for 400-420 flywheel horsepower ( 298-313kw ) and hopefully a mid 12second pass with decent rubber

Ill get some pics up once I take delivery ( next few days ) but I cant wait to get stuck into it

Re: SiX's new project

keep it black.. there is a certain 'presence' when old school cars are painted black :0

Sounds like a great hobby project
