it was an abandoned car that the council auctioned off

it was a bit of a risk because there was no key and of cource no history and no knowladge of why it was dumped, but the good thing about xf's is they have really cheap parts

id assume every council would have these type of auctions, i only knew about this one because my father works for the council that impounded this car

give your local council a ring and inquire about it!

well i got it on thursday night so the last couple of days were taken up with cleaning and sorting out the locks and ignition

now ive got it running and found out it is missing reverse and the rings are buggered, when i took the top of the air cleaner off it was full of oil and when i got the engine running there was smoke comming out of the carby like a steam train

so first up i need to source a 4.1 unleaded engine and 3 speed auto, ive also gotta choose a color i want to paint it because im gonna paint the engine bay when the old engine gets ripped out (ill do the rest of the car later) then once its running properly and i can actually drive it to see what else it needs ill take it from there, id imagine the next thing after that would be suspension but who knows, ill just take it as it comes and as my bank account allows!

Re: my new project

It has gas by the look of it, otherwise what the hell is that big silver thing on the right.

Very clean interior though, great pick up.
