The new XW Project

Well my young fella has gone and bought an XW Fairmont Project car. The body has a few minor things to sort out but all the major work has already been done, the interior is ok but needs a good touch up, mechanically it seems like it is going to be pretty strong!!
Balanced & Blueprinted 351 Windsor bored 30 thou up, Match ported Inlet Manifold to the heads and the heads matched to the Extractors, Solid Cam and Lifters, Big Stainless Valves, Adjustable Posi locks, Screw in Studs, Ross Balancer, ACL Pro Seal Rings , Clevite bearings, Mallory Twin Point Dizzy the auto is a C10 shift kitted and a 2500 stall, B&M shifter.


The next few months are going to be very interesting !

Cheers, Ray.

It's the BEST colour in the XW/XY range mate,It's the same colour as my XW, limelight frost metalic, good to see more XW's getting around, we all know they are the best in the Ford range.
